A full-featured Android IRC client

IRC sounds like something from Internet’s pleistocene. However, real IT geeks never left the once revolutionary communication tool. And if you did, it’s time to come back.

AndroIRC is a full-featured IRC client with everything you need to enjoy those classic chat rooms. It supports multiple servers connections, nickserv auth, easy access to channels management, themes and customizations, shortcuts… and many more features that will bring you back to the pre-Y2K era.

AndroIRC is set in a minimalist yet user-friendly interface. Connecting to servers, joining channels and start chatting is straightforward. You should give it a go. Experiencing IRC with a touchscreen keyboard is something you won't miss.

Note: Starting with AndroIRC 3.2, a new permission is required to get access to your location. This is *only* for the new action "Share my location" and nothing else! Moreover, AndroIRC *does not* have access to a precise position (given by GPS), but only to an approximate one (given by the network).

Recently changed in this version

- File transfer (aka DCC) is finally supported! Exchange files with your friends right now!
- A new compact mode is available if you want to reduce screen usage (see options in preferences).
- Ads are no longer shown is the user is premium (sorry for that!)
- Fix for blank window on screen rotation

    Very well done. The developer consistently updates and is always improving the client. Do have some requests. 1- Coloured nicknames. Similar to desktop clients mIRC and HexChat. It really helps keeping track of who's talking. 2-Chat bubbles for messages. Similar to WhatsApp. Just the option for them. 3-An option to automatically start and join channels when restarting/powering on my device. 4-A

    Well, this application does its job. Unfortunately terrible bug appears from time to time. Terrible graphical artifacts (grey noise) are so terrible, that it more than covers all app advantages

    If only you add support for DCC Chat too this will be awesome! I'll wait and hope...

    Samsung note 3 doesn't have physical search key. previous versions had a little transparent magnifying glass for nick completion, this is now gone. been using this app 2 years now, the loss of auto complete is the only thing holding me back from rating 5
