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.

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...

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.

Very nice app. However I'm not a "geek" much experienced in script, UNICODES and all that stuff. So some more info and help about making messages that use the screen name od the sender and relative time (morning, evening) would be much appreciated.

Do any of you know how to remove iCAR if it's screwing up your iChat. There isnt an uninstall option...and i really need to know.

Just remove the icar bundle from the LibraryApplication SupportSIMBLPlugins folder inside your User's Home folder. Next time you start up iChat, iCar will be gone =)
