    "good but not customer friendly"

    June 26, 2009   |   By Rafman

    Version: Linkinus 2.0.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I bought a license 2 month ago and now I'm forced tuo buy an upgrade license for version 2.x?

    I got this as an answer from the developer: "You are not required to upgrade to 2.x at all."

    I won't spend any money again on his app!

    sorry, but this is not the way you treat clients after not updating your app for 1 year!

    At least the developer could have mentioned that a new version ist coming out and that an update will be charged.

    "Skip this application"

    May 11, 2009   |   By krafter

    Version: Linkinus 1.3

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I purchased Linkinus because I liked the fact that it has a nice GUI and seemed like it had a lot of support.

    Updates have stopped coming through and the latest version won't even register properly with the codes they sent me.

    I emailed support and they re-sent my code and it still won't unlock the application. I emailed them again to point this out and they stopped responding to my emails. So even though I am a paying customer I cannot use their application.

    "not a good choice"

    October 20, 2008   |   By Rufus J

    Version: Linkinus 1.3

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This software has some nice features, but in the end is very unsatisfactory. Too many things are not customizable, some interface features are merely unintuitive and some others clumsy enough to be extremely frustrating and discouraging. The killer, though, is that any activity in a session sends CPU through the roof. This thing needs some interface adjustments and also some serious under the hood alterations for it to be a good client. Cannot recommend, although I hope these issues are successfully addressed because there are some good things here. (I had no problems staying connected, so a previous poster's experience could not be said to be universal and it does have options to auto-reconnect.)

    "Terrible"

    April 29, 2008   |   By kikendo

    Version: Linkinus 1.2.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Linkinus looks ace and probably should be your choice if all you want to do with your computer is IRC: it takes up more than 50% of CPU time in my system.

    If, like most people, you cant to do other things at the same time with your computer, get something with a smaller footprint.

    "Unusable"

    December 08, 2007   |   By khiltd

    Version: Linkinus 1.2.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Looks great in screenshots, but try actually running it, and oh boy. Aside from the terrible networking code, they can't even get their views to draw themselves without constant white-outs and flickering. Smells like somebody's first Cocoa project.

    "A standout Mac IRC client"

    July 21, 2007   |   By i_gaucho

    Version: Linkinus 1.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I just bought a copy of this from, er...a competing Mac software tracking site and I must say that it is one of the best IRC clients that I have tried on any platform. I haven't used IRC for a couple of years and when I did try a couple clients after switching to the Mac about 5 years ago, I was unimpressed and disappointed by all of them. This is a very simple and well organized application. I'm so glad that it doesn't have a dozen windows like other clients such as Colloquy and IRCle. It has a very straightforward setup assistant that helps you get started right away and get all the basic settings right the first time. Very customizable too. I was also amazed that they offer a student discount.

    I do wish some of the default settings complied a bit more to what is customary to other IRC clients. Example: a better indicator of who the ops are on a channel. You can change it in the preferences though to use the "@" such as is common in other clients. Some features could be a little more intuitive.
