Nokia phones until the launch of smartphones during 2010, have been dominating the markets with simplistic features. It can be said beyond any doubt that the easy messaging features were appealing to all age groups, something which the smartphones failed to do in the initial years. Even in this developing age when life seems almost indispensable without smartphones, Nokia still keeps up its usability quotient among the niche users.

With the introduction of WirelessIRC, the mIRGEE found its truest partner cum competitor which was also a native IRC client for the Nokia phone of S60 third edition. The advantage of WirelessIRC over mIRGEE was the support for Bonjour Local Chat and Twitter which was slowly becoming popular among the wider audience base. Chatting with thousands of acquaintances on IRC (Internet Relay Chat) and talking over local WLAN with the Bonjour Local Chat is possible. At the same time, you can also post your tweet on Twitter as well as follow people as it collects, auto posts and saves all the selective URLs on account.

The user will be connected to any IRC network any time with WirelessIRC, something which mIRGEE failed to do. Keeping in touch with people while you are on move, will be viable at any point of time. URLs are automatically acquired and saved for copying and pasting. With a semitransparent window, you can keep track of the various chatting or conversations while keeping a log of all the sent and received messages in your phone memory or external memory. Uploading log files and saving those chats which are important are also possible. Although mIRGEE has been the predecessor of the communication apps, the newer additions have been quite user-friendly.
