Goguma

An IRC client for mobile devices
An IRC client for mobile devices.

Goals:


  • Modern: support for many IRCv3 extensions, plus some special support for IRC bouncers.

  • Easy to use: offer a simple, straightforward interface.

  • Offline-first: users should be able to read past conversations while offline, and network disruptions should be handled transparently.

  • Lightweight: go easy on resource usage to run smoothly on older phones and save battery power.

  • Cross-platform: the main target platforms are Linux and Android.


Versions

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
