Straightforward application which enables you to easily keep in touch with friends and family by communicating via LAN or other network

editor's review




Charl is a simple software tool that provides users with a simple means of communicating with friends and family members through a LAN or other network connection.

Seamless setup and minimal interface

The installation process you are required to go through is a piece of cake, as it does not take more than a few moments and it does not offer to download any products that are not actually necessary for the utility to work properly. After you finalize it, you come face to face with a minimal GUI, as it only consists of a few buttons and two panes which enable you to view the conversion and people connected to the same server.

It becomes quite clear that all user categories, including those with little or no previous experience, can find their way around it, although no Help contents are integrated.

Settings you can tweak

This software program enables you to connect to a server by providing the address, name and password, and if necessary the channel you want to connect to and its passkey. In addition to that, you should know you can easily talk with several people in the same time, as well as create private conversations.

Right-clicking on the main window is going to bring up a context menu which enables you to cut, copy, paste and delete elements, as well as select them all and change the Unicode character.


CPU and memory usage is low at all times, which means that the system’s performance is not going to be affected by this app and you can run it alongside other products, without encountering issues. The interface is suitable to all users, the response time is good and our tests did not reveal any errors or crashes.

All in all, Charl proves to be a pretty efficient piece of software when it comes to communicating with other people, yet its overall simplicity might ward off power users.
