Love it my linux and windows machines can talk easily enough! Will be able to exchange wifes with my wife who still uses windows. will there be an android or iOS app soon?
Easy to set up. No need to run a server. Design and UX need an update though.
Love this Messenger. It's broadcast options with IP's and IP subnets allow for changing networks, which works perfect for laptops on mobile internet, home LAN's and VPN's. This one connects where the others don't. And the interface and options are real good. The author is still developing this great little tool! One Option missing for me... 1. A global hotkey option would be perfect. BorgChat has a global hotkey option. I had mine set at ALT-C to bring the messenger to the front and minimize it to the tray. Not criticizing this program in any way. This is the best FREE LAN Messenger out there period. Worth a donation to the author. Thanks.
I really love this program. It's changed the way my office runs for the better--I've paid for programs that were much less user friendly, clunkier, and cumbersome to use.
This messenger is awesome! *PROS - cross platform messaging and file sharing is insanely fluent. - nice customized UI - very light weight - easy options *CONS - needs lots of improvement to be perfect messenger for offices. (More simplified UI and options arranged psychologically.) - small problems are there. If cons will be overcome, It'll be used by all over the world. All the best Marco.
