Here are five iPhone IRC clients which we think are the best. These IRC clients for iPhone let you easily indulge in IRC chat while on the move. You can connect to any IRC server or channel, and quickly initiate chat.
Each one of these IRC apps come with a nice set of features; try them out see which one stands out and works for you. If you are new to IRC, then you might want to first understand What is IRC?
IRChon is one of the most popular free IRC clients for iOS devices. To add a server just go to settings, fill up the details and save it. Go back to setting and toggle connection to ON and you will be connected. Once you connect to a server, it will show you various channels, alongwith number of users under each channel.
The app offers a really nice and polished Interface. The IRC client has some unique features like the links posted are clickable and it opens up in the internal browser of the application, so that you don’t have to close the application when you need to check a link. The IRC client has an awesome feature of uploading pictures with Gyazo.
Also check out IRC clients for Windows.
Mango lite is another free IRC iPhone client. This IRC client has a huge set of impressive features. The application supports multiple server, SSL, multiple channels, One-to-one chats etc., like any of the IRC clients for iPhone. It is easy to maintain multiple conversations with its Tab navigation feature. Apart from the standard features the application offers some special ones:Visual user WHOIS command, small keyboard for efficient use of screen real state,URL hilighting, full-screen that hides the status bar, ability to log chat, transfer it to the computer via iTunes. This IRC client for iPhone is really feature rich and I would highly recommend this app for anyone.
ChatFinder is another free iPhone IRC client. It offers all the basics required for an IRC client. It is little more modern with the abilitie to connect to random chat rooms and offers list of chat rooms to choose from by country, topic etc. You can connect to channel of your choice by entering the channel details as per requirement. The application offers a place where you can interact with other like minded people. As the developer says the app offers 200,000 chat & flirt rooms. The application’s interface is nice enough but there is nothing stunning about the app.
IRC999 is a free iPhone IRC client. The interface is quiet nice, it is very simple, and offers all the basic features. I would like to recommend this application for those who just want to chat on IRC don’t want any special features. Its is fast, light, and easy to use. To summarize it: this iPhone IRC client is simple in every aspect but has all the features that should be there.
IRC Chat-Artificial Intelligence:
IRC Chat is last IRC client in our list of IRC clients for iPhone. Its name might be fancy but there is nothing special about the app itself. It’s the most basic IRC client on iOS. The Interface is pretty darn basic. But this IRC client offers one special feature that is the ability to predict your typical responses (Even commands) and as you use it more the better the application will get with predictions. But otherwise, there is nothing much interesting going on with the application.
