Igloo is a modern IRC client that supports lots of IRCv3 extensions and works flawlessly with all your favorite networks like Freenode, Libera, Snoonet, Rizon, EFnet, and all others. It has a very simple UI and lots of great themes to choose from. It is the only IRC client on iOS to support DCC/XDCC downloads that get synced right to iCloud Drive so you can access them on your iPhone/iPad in the Files app or on your macOS computer right in a folder called "Igloo". We've also added some extra modifications to improve your experience when using a bouncer such as ZNC, and we even support the IRCCloud bouncer.
This client has it all! If you think of something we haven't please let use know and we'll add it!

Ratings and Reviews
Awesome app for anyone into IRC
So now that Apple is letting me write reviews now, I can finally make a review for this app. This app is honestly amazing if you’re getting into IRC or have been in IRC for a while.
Now I will say that I’m still kinda against some restrictions with this app, like the network limitations or themes (at least give us dark mode, please). But if you think about it, you’re getting a premium IRC client for iOS for free, while all the others either have horrible UI’s or haven’t been updated in years.
Oh and ignore everyone that says they paid for the app but didn’t get the premium in this one for free like they were promised. I used friggin TESTFLIGHT, and never paid for the actual app (even made sure the dev was aware of this) and I still got premium for free. He even made sure I did and I was happy with it.
The dev has gone through so much to make sure everyone’s happy even with the fight with apple, it’s amazing this app is still here. Thanks for the dedication to this app Eskimo, and I promise I’ll be buying some merch when I can :D
Five Stars Plus!
I was a contented mIRC client user on my PC for years but a bicycle accident left me tetraplegic and dependent on iOS Voice Control to operate my iPad. After reading other reviews posted here it was with no small amount of trepidation that I downloaded Igloo and paid the small cost of getting it up and running. I needn't have worried- with all due respect every one of those negative reviews is so much bunk. The app works perfectly in every regard and I was immediately able to match and then surpass what I was doing using mIRC. To steal the phrase "it just works" I'll add "…and then some!"
Developer Response ,
We really appreciate the review and love to see people enjoying the app. If there are any changes we can make to accommodate your specific situation just let us know and we'll see what we can do. There is a button to join our support network in the app settings or you can feel free to email email@example.com if you ever need anything.
Eskimo had to change the way Igloo functions because of how/what Apple allows. Now light users can use it for free and pro users can pay for all the bells and whistles. If you already bought the previous version, just contact him and he’ll transfer your Pro purchase to the new version. Saved config via iCloud and imported into new version. Everything transferred over and worked perfectly! Best iOS IRC client and great developer.
