Can’t Connect to Gamesurge server (EDIT)

Does this app support gamesurge? I tried connecting and am getting an error, perhaps I am typing in incorrect info but if anyone knows how to connect to Gamesurge via ANY IRC app for Iphone, please let me know.

I was able to successfully connect to Gamesurge, which was the main issue here. App looks great, I really enjoy the layout. The only things bugging me is the fact that if I leave the app running in the background for a very short amount of time, if I bring the app back up, I have to reconnect to everything, which is a bit annoying. Only other thing is the signature when you leave, it leaves a link to Palaver’s website, which I don’t want. A custom exit message could be nice, but I mostly just don’t want to see the link. Aside from this, I do enjoy the app.

Developer Response ,

Hey westside24ch, connecting to GameSurge works just fine in our testing, just make sure to turn off SSL (the server does not seem to support this). If you still experience issues, could you reach out to us on and share the exact error message? Then we can help you find the problem.

I like it BUT...

I like the App so far- aesthetically pleasing, ergonomical, fairly straightforward.

HOWEVER, I wish it had a function or option to REMAIN CONNECTED when I go use another app or do something else with my phone.

For $1.99, I think I should get that.

Best Mutter replacement

For a long time I used Mutter IRC to access IRC through my ZNC bouncer on my iPhone. Mutter reached its end of life this past summer, and I was left in want of the features that Mutter had, particularly a ZNC push notification module. Palaver works great as a Mutter replacement! It has a ZNC push notification module that works just like Mutter’s did. It’s design is intuitive and sleek. My only qualm with it was resolved in Palaver’s most recent update—it now supports the buffextras ZNC module, so joins/parts read correctly on playback!
