One of the more popular and well known IRC client apps for iOS devices, Colloquy has quite a bagload of impressive features that make it the perfect solution for communicating over IRC, if you’re using an iOS device.


Colloquy is fully compatible with the Retina devices, and supports iOS multitasking with both local and push notifications. Regardless of whether you’re entering nicknames or even emoticons, auto-completion has your back. And that extends to nearly all of the IRC commands as well. It includes an organized Colloquies view that shows all your conversations in a glance, and can be configured to highlight messages (combined with vibration alerts) whenever your nickname or some specific words are mentioned during conversations. Not only that, Colloquy has a handy collection of unique features, such as the ability to ignore certain users, searchable member list, and per user information display, which really make it one of the best IRC client apps for iOS out there.
