"Room lists don't load correctly"

August 20, 2005  |  By jeffcgd

 |  Version: Not Found

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Some of the room lists don't load (ie: many of the adult ones, since yahoo changed them - you can't just have hard coded defaults), which is a shame, as otherwise it's nicer to use than Chit chat. Supports multiple profiles (which Chit chat doesn't do properly).
Could do with being a bit more stable too.

If the room lists were working properly, I'd switch back to Charla in a second.

"WHAT IS WITH YAHOO?? Jerks"

March 09, 2004  |  By Terabyte25

 |  Version: Charla 2.387

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Ok, so jcs2.chat.dcn.yahoo.com was working as a server name for a while, but they've changed it again, and now neither Charla nor Chit Chat work. These people at Yahoo are on my very last nerve. How can they edit out the entire Macintosh population? Why do we have to pay out the nose to do what PC users get for free?? Does anyone know a temporary fix for this?

"No Firewall Support"

July 31, 2003  |  By jimngo

 |  Version: Charla 2.2E7

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have used this for about a week. Most importantly, this will not work from behind a firewall. Second, there are still a couple of bugs. Selection does not follow in the screen name window, occasionally crashes during file transfers, and sometimes changing rooms do not work. Still, it's the best yahoo chat client for Mac OS X, so I put up with the quirks (which tells you about the poor support of Mac OS X from the Yahoo Chat world).

All I get is "Charla2 has unexpectedly quit". This program use to work, but since they've been updating it, it has ceased to work.

"Glitch with rooms list"

June 07, 2003  |  By hmeisner

 |  Version: Charla 2.291

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Overall i really love this app, and enjoy being able to run it alongside Yahoo Messenger. The new verion, while making it possible to get the room list to load again, seems to have a glitch with that room list. Only shows up when accessing Adult rooms... duplicate "Adult" rooms shows up and continously shows to be loading without success.

"Crashes constantly"

June 07, 2003  |  By JimSnider

 |  Version: Charla 2.291

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I really like this program a lot, and the previous version worked like a charm for me for several weeks. This latest version, while it does get the room list working again, is oddly unstable. I wish I could say what makes it crash... it just crashes for no apparent reason with an "unexpectedly quit" error. It will crash when I have it in the background and I'm not even typing into it. I look forward to the next version.

"Still freezes"

June 06, 2003  |  By jcraig23

 |  Version: Charla 2.291

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
App locks up after about 5 minutes. Same as before, no spinning beach ball, just stops. Also, unexpectedly quits if you try to log in emulating java chat. Running OSX 10.1.5 This used to be the only way to chat on Yahoo, now it's unusable. Thank God java works in Mozilla.
