Rocklin firm releases iPod, iPhone relay app

Rocklin-based Purple Communications Inc., a provider of text/video relay and on-site interpreting services, said Tuesday it has introduced the nation’s first relay application for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch.

The company said this version of its “IP-Relay” application allows users make direct IP-Relay calls from their phones or dial anyone in their iPhone address book with just a few taps. The application particularly benefits deaf users.

IP-Relay for iPhone and iPod Touch is free to use and available as a free download in Apple’s App Store. For details, go to
