Mukluk not Telnet compliant Those gremlin characters of gibberish you see in Mukluk when connecting or handshaking with a mu* are due to Mukluk ignoring Telnet RFC 854.and never responds to the IAC character properly. This is why other clients, even PuTTY, work better.
It worked for casual MUCKing without a real keyboard. Decent dumb terminal. Gestures are intuitive and include history and real vertical scrolling... and that's it. Font in server output is small enough to get plenty on screen and large enough to be readable. Font in editor is larger, suitable for finger pointing. Hold menu on server text doesn't seem to offer regular text copy, but with logging turned on that isn't so important. Some sort of "activity since last foreground" notification would be nice, as would autoscroll to the VERY bottom when switching in. Scrolling the cursor right required finagling.
No frills, no nonsense. Simple, easy to use but not very heavily featured, it focuses rightly on just making things work. Because of this, it's stable and reliable. I really commend the creator for such a simple but easy to use Mud client. Bravo.
Great Android MU* client! Been using SimpleMU on the PC for 20yrs now, and Mukluk is the best Android client I've found yet, and the only one capable of handling multiple worlds well. But it badly needs some sort of 'activity in world' notification, and trigger/timer capability. (At the very least some sort of basic 'keep alive' signal) Add those three and I'd give it six stars if I could :)
Great MUD player This is my favorite MUD player on android, but whenever while in landscape mode, the input box covers the entire screen, this something I can overlook, but it can be a bit annoying at times. Also, a shortcut to scroll through previously output text would also be nice
Do I have to reinstall every time I want to play? After I add a world, I can connect. However if I disconnect, the app minimizes every time I select thr world after that. :/ Sorry for the bad review, but that combined with the input lag makes my muds unplayable.
