Functional but crashes

some ok features but somewhat clumsy and crashing a lot, features stop working between updates which are few in number lately

Constant hidden text issue

Everything I type past about 5 words is hidden. Possibly related to increased font size for accessibility? Makes it impossible to use. Great otherwise

dreadful but works

this is the best that they can come up with on the ipad and iphone? this is missing features that mIRC has had since version 1.0! like for example a button that turns off the useless automatic timeout that cannot distinguish between being connected to the cellphone network and the wifi network! if i wanted it to disconnect from the wifi network i would just QUIT THE PROGRAM! instead every 15 minutes or so i have to switch back to colloquoy just to keep it connected to irc so i can stay up to date with the latest conversation, this behaviour breaks over 10 years of tradition of me starting mIRC and checking in every hour or two or just leaving mIRC run for all night and me checking it in the morning, i hate this app and every other irc client on the apps store, the worst part is that ive had to buy 3 apps just to find out that this heaping pile is the best that you will get, oh gee here we go again, another few bucks wasted on a useless ap!
