IP Messenger Comments

Cross-platform compatibility

about IP Messenger Aug 2015

As an iptux (Linux) user, I was happy to know that IP Messenger was compatible with it so I could communicate with Windows machines.
The most visible issue is the user interface, which is rather complicated. I could receive messages, but I've never figured out how to see the contact list.
If it were more user-friendly, IP Messenger would have my upvote.
