    I've been chipping away at an IRC client for the platform, and I'm getting close to releasing an Alpha version for people to play with.

    For those now in the kno, IRC stands for Internet Relay Chat and it's what people used before other IM tools became popular. It's still alive and well today and is mostly used in the software development community. Also, it's the technology Twitch uses for their chat feature.

    I don't have a name yet... I'm thinking bIRC? Open to suggestions.

    Anyways, here's a screenshot:

    I know it's a bit cheesy, but what about 10RC? The 1 is an I and 10 for bb10. Or you could do 1oRC.

    Here's a name idea I just thought of: BlackChat. It's a play on BlackBerry and black-hat hackers.

    Call it 'WhatsThat?' because that's what everyone will ask when you say you're on IRC.

    Use Native IRC as the title. Simple an explanatory. By the way, is this native or using webworks/html5?

    Hmm.. I was suggesting bIRC (play on mIRC, which I sort of grew up with during the mid teenage years).

    Totally missed that you had mentioned it on the first post!

    Anyway, my vote goes for bIRC.

    I haven't looked into supporting xdcc... I won't rule it out, but it's not on the initial feature list.
