ChatBot is a client for PandoraBots.
PandoraBots are natural language processing chatterbots -a program that engages in a conversation with a human by applying some heuristical pattern matching rules to the human's input.
It was inspired by Joseph Weizenbaum's classical ELIZA program. It is one of the strongest programs of its type and has won the Loebner Prize, awarded to accomplished humanoid, talking robots, three times (in 2000, 2001 and 2004).
The AI behind PandoraBots is the work of Dr Richard Wallace.
Dr. Wallace's work has appeared in the New York Times, WIRED, CNN, ZDTV and in numerous foreign language publications across Asia, Latin America and Europe.
ChatBot includes "Qwerty" for free.
If you enable it, it will use your Mac's speech feature so you can hear it too!
There are hidden features and games too.

No there is no human behind it, it's a robot.
Yes this requires Internet because the bot is hosted on a server, so we can improve it remotely.

It currently only works on OSX Lion but we are working on a backward-compatible version.
The "premium" bots are owned and managed by 3rd party "botmasters". ChatBot is merely a client allowing you to easily communicate with bots from all over the world.
Please give us good reviews or we will ask the bots to hunt you down.
NEW: talk to more bots using In-App purchases. Just one purchase gives you access to plenty of new personalities.
We also had to change our logo because Apple asked us to. Sorry, we liked the other logo better too...
