So far it's been phenomenal for xdcc downloads. it's even more reliable than mirc on my computer. HOWEVER! One massive issue is that I can't get it to save directly to my sd card, I have to save to phone and then transfer it over. My sd card is not formatted to be internal, but it should be capable with coping with that. PLEASE FIX THIS!!!!! than this app would be flawless.

Hey, thank you for your feedback. We found and fixed the issue, so you can now download directly to your SD card in the latest release. You just need to go into Settings and set your SD card (or any folder within) as the default download folder.

Use it for xdcc downloads of large files, best on the play store by far. They recently fixed a download bug after I left a review about it, so they definitely have earned this 5 stars in my eyes. Unfortunately a stopped or incomplete download makes it impossible to resume in my experience, but deleting the file and starting over works. If resume was fixed this would be 6/5 stars

Thank you for your feedback, Cody. We were able to identify the issue causing large downloads to stall, and this is fixed in the latest release. You should now be able to download large files >1GB over a stable WiFi or mobile data connection.

It's functional, but there are issues. Disconnect didn't work. I could only disconnect by removing the server. The Identity system requires a new identity for every connection if you connect to a ZNC with multiple networks. Nick completion only works at the beginning of the line. It's fine for basic use, but it won't supplant Revolution IRC for my use.

Thank you for your feedback. The latest version now allows nick completion anywhere in the chat input if you type an @ symbol and the first character of the nickname you want to match. There are certain rare cases where disconnect does not as expected, and this will be fixed in a future release.
