Weechat Android Relay Client

This is an Android Weechat Relay client. It is currently in beta status, with most things working. I use it daily without issue.

This requires weechat to be running somewhere and it connects to it. It is not a standalone weechat for your phone. If you are looking for a standalone irc client for android, you will need to look elsewhere.


Stable version - v0.07
