Roel from Mobile Ventures let us know that they have released a new app called Chatmostphere for BlackBerry. The app is an interesting sort of IRC proxy that lets you participate in over 100,000 chatrooms around the world. It has some limitations on it because it has to proxy the connection making it not a true IRC client because an intermittent internet connection would bomb your out constantly if it was a full client.
Chatmostphere has smartly included a 14 day free trial of their app for you to see if it interests you. After that it is selling for $7.99 (Currently $4.99 on sale) at this link in the store.
Check out a video of Chatmostphere in action below:
Giveaway details: Mobile Ventures was kind enough to offer 20 free copies of Chatmostphere for the first 20 readers who head to the product page and use the coupon code CHTMSP4BRRY. Don’t forget to thank Mobile Ventures in the comments and share your thoughts in the forums!
There is a severe lack of an IRC client for BlackBerrys with JIRC being the last one I remember so it is good to see Mobile Ventures step into the field. I know one person who uses BBSSH to connect to his command line IRC client but even that is a right hand scratching left ear workaround. Kind of sad that he has to resort to that.
