I chat with a group on Userplane. It's been frustrating to not be able to use the iPhone for this. When I go there, I just get an "F" icon.

If IRC can be done for the phone, why not Userplane? Isn't IRC flash based also? And, would it be possible to sort of port the Userplane to an existing IRC app or some way to get this to work? Or is this never going to happen unless Apple deals with it?

Perhaps if Userplane was more popular, we'd have a 3rd party solution by now? Maybe?
