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

    This app was working like a charm till the last upgrade which broke it. I can no longer download books through the app and that was the only reason I installed it in the first place. I'll increase my rating if this can be fixed

    Only sometimes it closed all server and channel, after dcc received finish. Could you fix that bug?

    Very happy about DCC despite occasional hiccups. My biggest complaint is the settings. Every time I quit the app or restart my phone all of the settings are lost and I'm shown the quick start guide. Frustrating to have to setup everything again including nick and auto join. Otherwise it is a very simple and useful IRC client.

    I cannot connect with WiFi. With mobile data everything is OK, but as soon as I connect to WiFi my irc servers get disconnected. What is wrong? Help please.
