Ratings and Reviews
Looks nice and is regularly updated
I love how the developer quickly responds to and fixes the bugs and crashes. I now use this client as my every day instead of mutter and friends. Startup is super fast now, and supports URIs for ZNC pushover notifications.
Best looking client out there.
Do not recommend
Igloo has a lot of potential but is plagued by a difficult to use interface, frequent hangs & crashes, and is unreliable in general. On top of that the developer is very toxic going as far as calling his own paying customers “idiot”.
Only support is through an IRC channel which must be accessed by more reliable apps just to get help. And if you do manage to reach it for support, make sure you are a fast typer because you will be banned just for failing to respond in time or asking what a specific command does, then you have no other way to contact the developer for assistance.
There have also been accusations from multiple parties that the developer eavesdrops on personal information which is a big no no.

Maybe you're just an idiot. If you're crashing it's something you're doing, I haven't crashed in nearly a year now, and if your app is freezing you must be using a really old device. As for the accusations, that's just freenode staff making things up because they are a bunch of incels. You can monitor network traffic sent to our servers and see there's no data being collected at all. Anyway, if you ask for support, follow what you're told otherwise you won't get help; that's just how the world works. How do I know you're not running a version of igloo from a year ago on an iPhone 4 if you don't type the command I ask?
It’s good but banned from Freenode
For some reason this application is now banned from connecting to the Freenode network, but otherwise this is a great IRC app on iOS.

A member of freenode staff has an issue with me personally and has unprofessionally added this block. You can still use igloo, just disable ctcp replies or set a custom version string in settings.
