Finally. It's been almost two years since the last AndroIRC release on the Play Store. During this time, we had unfortunately less time to spend in developing AndroIRC, as we (my brother and I) have both a full-time job.

Nevertheless, AndroIRC 4.0 is now officially available in the Play Store ! If you have a device running Android 2.3+, you should receive the update soon!

There's a lot of news features, and a lot of bug fixes in this release. You can find a (more or less) complete list below.

We want to thanks all our translators which, as always, did an amazing jobs translating your favorite app in your language! And of course, a big thanks to you!

Enjoy this release !

Novinka od Sébastien, dne 23/08/2013 - Zobrazit komentáře

It's been a while since the release of the first beta of AndroIRC 4.0. We have received a lot of feedback from you, thanks a lot!

Unfortunately, this first beta was not as stable as expected. We took the time to properly fix everything, and it's involved rewritting many part of the application from scratch.

But today we are pleased to announce the release of AndroIRC 4.0 beta 2! We encourage every user of the first beta to upgrade as soon as possible, as this beta will be more stable. You'll find a complete change log at the bottom of this article.

The distribution channel of this new beta is new. Indeed, for the first time, we choose to use the new Google Play Store beta distribution channel. This mean you'll receive the update directly on your device, no side loading!

In order to be able to get the beta, you'll need to follow two very simple steps:

That's all! Once it's done, you'll receive the update on your device! Please note that as long as you are an AndroIRC tester, you won't be able to rate or comment on the AndroIRC Play Store page! If you want to report some issues or bugs, please use our support page.

AndroIRC 3.3 now available on the Market!

Novinka od Sébastien, dne 14/03/2012 - Zobrazit komentáře

After some times of beta testing, it's now time to release the final version on the Android Market. When you'll read these lines, the update should be available on your device!

So, what's new in this release? The first thing you'll notice is that the UI has changed a little bit. There's now a title strip on the top of the message list, indicating on which channel you are, and what channels there're on the left / right. You'll also notice some change when swipping. All these change will improve your experience with AndroIRC.

There're also two interesting new features :

  • Ignore support. The command works like mIRC one. You can see more documentation here
  • SSL certificat support. This allows you to identify yourself on servers supporting SSL authentication. More informations on our wiki.

Of course, we have also fixed a lots of bugs! For the next release, a better theme support with customizable colors is planned, but don't take this as truth ;)

If you don't already have AndroIRC, you can download it on the Android Market (Google Play)

Have fun with AndroIRC!
