VoxOx combines all your contacts into one Mac client

Since we're The Unofficial Apple Weblog, we kept it pretty Apple-oriented during last week's CES conference. There were plenty of interesting Windows apps and other smartphones and tablets around, but if it wasn't Apple-centric, we usually walked past it to find something more our style. But VoxOx...

IRC on the iPad: Colloquy and Linkinus

I was originally going to do a "TUAW Smackdown" for iPad Internet Relay Chat (IRC) clients, but after testing both mobile Colloquy and Linkinus, there's not a lot of smacking to do. Both apps are well-written, solid offerings that I can wholeheartedly recommend. They allow you to set up your...

Bitlbee and Rooms: Accessing AIM Chat Rooms from your iPhone

We're a pretty AIM-based blog around these parts. The fact that Weblogs, Inc. is owned by AOL may or may not play a role in that. Regardless, we TUAWians spend a lot of time in AIM chat rooms. The App Store's lack of AOL chat room support has been a real burden when we're out on the road with...

When I migrated my home system to a Mac, the IRC client of choice quickly became the open-source Colloquy. It was simple to use and easy to integrate scripting via...

Linkinus 1.3 brings split chats, embedded videos, and a performance boost

Linkinus is the preferred IRC client for a lot of our readers, I know (personally I tend towards Colloquy, but only because I'm a cheapskate and it's donationware), and they kindly dropped us a note to let us know they'd updated to version 1.3. The new build includes the ability to split chat...

IRC fans rejoice. Leopard's iChat 4 introduces IRC-style /me actions. Just enter /me followed by an action and iChat will properly attribute that action to you in the chat window. The action appears outside the "bubbles" in a central text. iChat does not yet support /describe but /me is a great...
