Hello and thanks for your response.
When I suggested 'Search inside messages' I thought of how this was implemented in Telegram messenger (https://telegram.org/
), please see the screen-shot (http://postimg.org/image/r2uo5pljd/
). If you have a Telegram account you may test the way 'Search' works in Telegram and if you'd like it you may add such a feature to your to do list. I think searching inside messages may be very useful in many cases.
I would suggest one more feature:
- an option to 'Load all messages on program's start' or a button to load all messages beside 'Load 10 message(s)' button. Now if the users needs all messages to be loaded they need to click 'Load 10 message(s)' time and again. I think that 'Load 10 more messages' sounds better than 'Load 10 message(s).
Another possible new feature:
- Status changes Isotoxin tray icon's colour- Online- Green (as it is now), Away makes the icon Yellow and Busy makes it Red.
It is not a bad idea to add support for more messaging protocols in the future (especially if Jabber is among them) but you may keep a separate, slim version of Isotoxin which supports only Tox. I suppose that for many users the most valuable feature of Isotoxin is its support for Tox protocol since there are several good and mature multi-protocol messengers like Miranda IM, Miranda NG and Pidgin. One more reason to keep a separate Tox-only version of Isotoxin- when support for more protocols is added bugs may appear while now Tox-only Isotoxin seems to be very stable.
I like that Isotoxin can be used as a truly portable program and this is the main reason for me to switch from qTox to Isotoxin. Once qTox could be run in portable mode but earlier this year its portability was broken. It seems the bug has been fixed now but I switched to Isotoxin because for me it is very important to be sure that all the data and settings are saved inside program's folder so that I can carry Isotoxin on a flash drive and run it on guest machines without leaving any traces behind me. Anyway, I like Isotoxin GUI better than qTox and I hope that in the foreseeable future it will have support for video messaging.
By the way, I wrote a basic review about Isotoxin at The Portable Freeware Forum:http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=22264
