    I'd like to have more notification options. Instead of just notify on mention current nick, I'd like to be able to specify a list of strings to watch for.

    In a lot of ways, this is what a mobile IRC client should be like. The push notifications are AWESOME. The price for this app however is a little steep considering the lack of features. Why is there no way to save connection information? I don't want this client running all the time, and I definitely don't want to have to enter login details every time I need to connect. I use an IRC bouncer (ZNC)

    The app only works over WIFI, I get an error when connecting over mobile network: "java.lang.illegalstateexception scheme 'http' not registered". Over wifi it works well, but I have been unable to test it on my regular IRC servers since it doesn't allow me to connect to servers with self-signed certificates.

    Application does exactly what it is advertised to do. The developer was able to explain a couple of things for me on his IRC Channel. The interface is very clean and the application does not feel bloated at all. It is perfect! Bottom Line: There is more that could be implemented, but the application does everything listed in the description. Five Stars!

    I really like the direction of this project. Much more convenient than Irssi for me. Just wish I could send commands.
