Does IRE have an app for smartphones to check messages and news and the like?

    I made an unofficial one (with IREs blessing to do so) for Android: IRE helper.

    No, but Vadi does:


    And for some reason, I'm not finding it for iOS. Not sure if it's available.

    Mostly because they're being quite difficult themselves. Sorry.

    Yeah, to develop an iOS app, you must first own a Mac, and then it's somewhere between $100-300 US to get the SDK (depending on a couple of factors, like if you're an educational institution, for-profit business, etc). Compare that to Android, and you get: can develop on Mac, Windows, or Linux; SDK is free. That explains quite a bit why you can find so many more free apps in the Google Play Store than you can in iOS's App Store. (I have an Android phone and an iPad both).

    And that's if you want to code in objective-C, which I personally can't stand. If you want to do it in a language that wont have you pulling your hair out, you've gotta shell out another 300 bucks for a MonoTouch license (for C# in my case) as well.

    It's just a massive pain in the behind to do anything on non-jailbroken iOS devices.
