A reliable, cross-platform LAN chat client that you can use to send and receive text messages to and from other users in your network

editor's review




ChatApp provides users connected to the same LAN with a simple way to stay in touch with each other. It basically is a chat client that facilitates communication between multiple PCs in the same network.

Server-client application for LAN chatting

Based on a client-server architecture, it can come in handy for sending text messages to other user in the LAN. The server and the client are distributed separately, but you need them both to make ChatApp work.

The server must be launched on one of the computers and once it is running, client applications will be able to initiate a connection, provided they have the correct server address and port number (configurable in the 'Settings' window).

Create a chat room or send private messages

Its interface is not the most impressive we've seen, but it provides fast access to all the options, enabling you to connect to the server and open a new chat room in seconds. Once your PC is connected to the server, you only have to enter the desired username and password to enter the chat room.

A list of all the online users is available within the main window and you should know that all the connected users can view the messages you write in the currently active chat room. It is also possible to send private messages to someone, by selecting the corresponding nickname from the list and opening a private chat window.

An easy to configure LAN chat client that sticks to the basics

Considering the above, we could say that the application is very easy to use and configure. Unfortunately, its functionality is limited to sending text messages. You cannot use it to exchange images, send emoticons or files on your PC.

Delivered inside a lightweight package, ChatApp is a simple and intuitive LAN client that helps you chat with your friends. It features the basic functions to allow communication between computers in the same network.
