Relay IRC app review: IRCv3 support

Reviews

Introduction

Relay IRC provides seamless IRC functionality on your iOS device so that you can chat away to your heart’s content with a slick interface and a range of handy features to provide security and convenience.

The best iPhone apps for running

I’ve never been a big user of IRC but I know how good it can be for connecting with like-minded individuals; this app appears to work very well indeed so I would definitely recommend it to any of you who are on the lookout for a decent IRC client.

SSL Encryption

What we have here is a great little app in the Social Networking category of the App Store that will provide you with convenient IRCv3 access on your iOS device, with all messages being transferred across an SSL connection for added privacy.

You can set up alerts that will inform you via Push notification when you receive a message, so if you’re busy doing something else you’ll always be able to keep up with the latest conversations.

Multitasking Support

Relay IRC also supports multitasking which enables you to receive messages and stay logged in with the app minimized and your device locked.

Best iphone and ipad apps

There isn’t much more to say about this app because the concept is very simple. The only thing I would add is that Relay IRC hasn’t been updated for iOS 8 support just yet so you might encounter a few minor bugs along the way until this is done.

Final Words

If you’re still using iOS 7 then I’d definitely recommend Relay IRC for iPhone and iPad, but it’s still worth checking out if you’ve updated to iOS 8.
