Prattle allows you to control Adium from your mobile phone. It allows you to sit on your couch, and receive and answers messages through Adium. To do this, you need to install a plug-in (that comes with Prattle) into Adium. This plug-in starts a Prattle Bluetooth server when Adium starts automatically. Once Adium is running, you connect the Prattle program, on your mobile, to your computer.

Since Prattle uses Bluetooth, both your mobile and your computer must have Bluetooth. In addition, since Prattle is written in Java MIDP 1.0, you need a Java compatible phone.

What's New
  • Important: Please uninstall Prattle 0.2 by removing "~/Library/Application Support/Adium 2.0/BluetoothChat.AdiumPlugin" where "~" is your home directory. Otherwise both Prattle 0.2 and 0.3 will be running, and you might connect the Prattle 0.3 phone client with the Prattle 0.2 server.
  • Unicode support (UTF-8 to be exact). Your phone will need to have the appropriate fonts in order to display non-ASCII characters.
  • New messages trigger an alert. If other messages are received while the alert is active, there will be no additional notification.
  • The other messages are shown in order, as alerts are dismissed.
  • This version is compatible with Adium 0.8.
  • When searching for "More devices", Prattle now displays an alert. Note that dismissing the alert will stop the search.
  • The new version will not find Prattle 0.2's servers. It is still possible to talk to a Prattle 0.2 server using "Reconnect".
  • Requires Java MIDP 2.0.
  • Important: Please uninstall Prattle 0.2 by removing "~/Library/Application Support/Adium 2.0/BluetoothChat.AdiumPlugin" where "~" is your home directory. Otherwise both Prattle 0.2 and 0.3 will be running, and you might connect the Prattle 0.3 phone client with the Prattle 0.2 server.

Awww man. Apparently my SE K750 doesn't have the Bluetooth API necessary to run this app. Rats. I was really looking forward to playing around with this.
