If you have an Android phone, you should check this out; it's really cool!

I was on the channel today and I thought it would be really neat if I could stay connected to BC chat at all times. This way, I'd be able to bug all my favorite chat regulars! HOW COOL? WAY COOL!

I did a search on the market place for "irc" and several apps returned. Of course there are always free apps and paid ones (paid are "usually" better) so I had to do some homework on them.

After reviewing about 5 different IRC's for Android I settled on Android IRC ($4.95).

It's a great app that allows you to manage multiple IRC servers and it's one of the only ones that will continue to run in the background.

Also, it seems to be the most stable.

If you have Android and you enjoy chatting in BC Chat, you should definitely get yourself hooked up with one of these apps.

I'm recommending Android IRC! It's only $5!

There are many chat clients for Android phones and iDevices. I use YAAIC for my Android based phone and it does what I need it to do and it's FOSS so I don't feel like a heretic using it.

I've been having problems with my chat client!

It was working great for like a day and then took a dump on me.

I emailed the dev and he asked me what network I was on.. I said Verizon and he said they block IRC on some of their networks.

He said the only way I'd be able to use it is if I could hook up to WiFi.

I'm using the Droid X and I can enable wireless tethering, but can I connect to my own WiFi?

Assuming you Droid X works similarly to my Samsung Moment, I don't think so. When I connect to wifi it turns off the cell Transmitter/Receiver so if your using your phone to connect to the internet you cannot supply a WiFi hotspot for others.
