iCAR is a plugin for iChat that implements an advanced auto-reply function. Replies may be sent after every message received, after only the first one from each buddy, or only if a certain time interval has elapsed. They may be sent when you are available or idle, not only when you have set yourself as "away". The content of an iCAR auto-reply may be your iChat status, entered manually, selected randomly, or even generated dynamically by an AppleScript or a Unix command.

What's New

Version 0.8.1:
  • Fixed a rare crasher introduced in version 0.8.
Version 0.8:
  • Now compatible with iChat 3.0 and Tiger. Support for all other versions has been dropped.
  • Chats are no longer automatically accepted when iCAR is turned on.

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.4 or later, iChat 3.0.

ok...just tried installing this on 10.4.1 and i go to launch ichat and it bounces in the dock, the black triangle appears, it stops bouncing, i enter my password to log into AIM, and then nothing. no buddy list, no bonjour list. i try to click on the ichat menu but nothing appears. the "ichat" in the menubar highlights blue (like the menus are supposed to do) but no menu appears. bummer!!! finding out icar didnt work was my greatest dissappointment since upgrading to tiger, and now i am crushed yet again.

Give 0.8.1 a try. It should fix this sort of problem.

The installer didn't work for me - but following the instructions in the "for geeks and control freaks" section got it to work. Now to see how it works...

Click on the download link in Safari (Tiger), end up with an iCAR-0-1.8.dmg.gif file.
The same happens for any other file downloaded from sourceforgenet since upgrading to Tiger. Any idea about what's going on?

COOL!

It's the first time I actually see the pref pane.

Hope it won't crash though.

But it's a nice feature :D


Thanks!

It is a great little addition to iChat, but I cannot use it because it crashes too often. I would like to see an update of this program where this is no longer an issue. Especially since it crashes upon me receiving a message without me ever getting the chance to read that message. Overall it is great except for that bug.

I tried installing that thing a 100 times and
it simply ain't work for me.

Could it be that iCar doesn't support
any other languages than English?

Great lil app if you have a lot of AIM buddies. I wish it would not crash so much though. I also wish that if you are disconnected and then automatically reconnected it would set your status message back to what before the disconnect, but I think its probably more of an iChat issue than an iCAR issue.

Absolutely incredible program! Adds so much functionality to iChat, and besides, it's great to impress your Windows-using friends. ;) "AAH! How did you know my NAME!? AAAH!" I get a lot of great reactions. :) I can't think of a single thing more that it needs other than maybe a few more example AppleScripts and a more in-depth explanation of the AppleScript and UNIX parts.
