Pretty good, a little quirky
The user interface is a little weird. The menus don't entirely make sense. Putting the logs in a panel below the text entry bar is odd.
None of the built-in styles is great. It looks like they're plain CSS/YAML, so if it bothered me enough I could probably make my own.
You can change the text size easily, but it doesn't remember that when you quit. There's 100 preferences (in an overly complex preferences dialog) which do save, and most of them are weird things I can't imagine anyone ever wanting to do.
Still, it's small and fast and perfectly reliable. It supports all the modern IRC features I use. It's even open-source! That's a great foundation. I wish all the apps I used got those basics right.
Great so far. Have one feature request.
It is great so far. Love the dark theme.
I had to figure out how to move the text box down. It is nice to be able to just move up the text bar and see nickserv or chanserv notifications.
Feature request: I would love to see the following sounds added which are IRC classics: Beep1, Beep2, Bell1, Bell2, Clap, Cymbal, DJ Scratch, Electronic Signal, Explosion, Kick, Laser, Pop, Rattle, Sonar Beep, Stoof, Switch, Whip. Some of those sounds I rely on as I have used them for years.
Thanks for keeping this app updated! For those of us who still use IRC, it is wonderful to see an IRC app remain updated like this. Thanks!
This app is so great. Amazingly stable and reliable. I have it running on my Mac all the time and it never gives me a bit of trouble.
Works every time.
At first I thought it was strange how few updates there were to the app, but whoever coded this is just very good.
I also use the iOS app. Also an amazing app.
IRC is a system that’s been around a long time, and is still incredibly valuable. If you want help on a technical subject, and you don’t find anything googling support forum posts, this is the best bet.
Just be prepared for the people and thicken your skin. :)
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
