Easily the best IRC on iOS.

I've tried so many different IRC apps but none of them are too good. This one gives you access to IRC without any hassle. It supports SASL NickServ and ZNC passwords right in the settings. There are great themes for the IRC area. Swipe to delete channels and other stuff. It can do image upload easily through It integrates with iOS notification centre well so you can get messages on your lock screen. The implementation is better than most desktop clients.

This is an outstanding IRC app. Hats off to the creator.

Active developers, daily use app.

“Your app lit my cat on fire. It’s good enough that I realized… the cat can suffer.”

Former Mutter user, switched to Palaver without hesitation after witnessing the developers responsiveness and passion within their support channel. ⌘K was a suggestion of mine; thanks!

Smooth and well designed experience.

I use Palaver for my iPhone and iPad and it works exceedingly smooth. Modern features are supported along with some ZNC bouncer support. Devs are also responsive.
