Sparks - Campfire for iOS

No Spoon Software LLC
Sparks is the simple and fresh approach to using the Campfire chat service from 37Signals. Created by two long time users of Campfire, Sparks removes the noise and overhead found in other Campfire clients allowing you to focus on the conversation and get things done. Version 3 is a free upgrade for all existing Sparks users.


✔ Works on iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch
✔ Simplified authentication: Sign in once and have all your rooms from all your sites in one place
✔ Streamlined message view: All the chat without the "enter / leave / kick / idle" message noise
✔ 37Signals account avatars
✔ Inline image previews
✔ Full sound message support
✔ Upload files from your Photo Library
✔ View previous chats with full Transcript support
✔ Tap a name in the campers list to start a quick @ reply
✔ Optimized experience: Version 3 was written from the ground up with performance in mind

★★★★★ "The Best Around
I've tried a couple other Campfire clients for the iPad, and this one is smoother, fast and more polished. It's a great way to leverage a great service."

★★★★★ "Love It!'
I actually prefer using Campfire in Sparks on iPad over using it in a browser on my Mac or even the Propane Mac app…"
