Spark is a lovely, secure and fast IM client for local network communication, with extra tools that make it an excellent companion for your daily work on office. It features built-in support for group chat, telephony integration, and strong security. It also offers an excellent end-user experience with features like in-line spell checking, group chat room bookmarks, and tabbed conversations.

Spark displays a nicely designed interface that creates it really pleasant to use. I especially just like the emoticons sets included within the program, furthermore because the usage of a code to tell apart between different statuses (online, away, busy then on). Spark also has some extra details that are hardly found in LAN clients, like avatar support, conference rooms, voice chat, spellcheck and even a special tool to capture anything on your screen and send it on to any contact.

Spark could be a full-featured instant messaging (IM) and groupchat client that uses the XMPP protocol. The Spark ASCII text file is governed by the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL), which may be found within the LICENSE.html come in this distribution. Spark also contains Open Source software from third-parties. Licensing terms for those components is specifically noted within the relevant source files.

This application utilises what’s called a tongue search. Queries like a reputation, a subject matter or maybe the primary letter of a word will pull up the foremost relevant results. Different email signatures and personalised calendar invites are two other features available within this standard package.
