I want to like it…
But the lack of updates in over year in the absolute refusal to support /ignore make this pretty much completely useless for my needs. If you have very basic IRC needs and are in a channel where you do not need to ignore then it is usable and it works pretty well but it's very, very limited.

No support
It appears the developer took free, open-source software and turned it into an iOS app. That's fine, and encouraged, but the developer has failed to provide updates and support. The current version, released over a year ago, has a severe bug that prevents it from connecting to IRC servers that require SASL. I recommend this app be pulled from the store, as most IRC servers require SASL support, rendering this client useless.

support is laughable
It's comical that their support site doesn't load 99% of the time. Not only can you not ask for support, but you can't access all of the other requests for support and/or bug tickets that have been filed. This is the case for both the mobile app and the desktop app. While the desktop app is free, the mobile app is not, so the colloquy devs have no excuse not to support the mobile app. How difficult/expensive is it to host a simple website and allow users to file bug reports and possibly see workarounds other users have figured out? Epic FAIL.

Good app, but...
Advertises staying connectedwhile locked, but fails to mention that it's only for 10 minutes due to an iOS limitation (so you can thank Apple.) Still, seems like poor practice to say "stays connected while locked" and then withhold the fact that it can't stay connected for longer than 10 minutes, given that I'd imagine most people who pick it up for that are doing sp because most other apps don't offer it at all. Be honest.

Missing Keyboard
I have been a long time colloquy user and love the product but I am disappointed with the most recent release. When switching channels or multitask apps, the keyboard goes completely white and I have to wait 1-5 minutes for it to re-appear. It makes IRC very difficult to navigate. Thanks.
