A brand new app for the iPhone allows deaf users to communicate in a way that was previously inaccessible to the Apple smartphone.

Purple Communications, a leader in services for the hearing impaired, introduced "IP-Relay," a text-relay service, over 15 years ago. This is the first time that its technology has made its way to the most popular smartphone on the market. It claims to be the first iPhone app directly targeted to this market.

"Expanding this freedom continues to be a passion of ours. It feels great to offer our customers another way to connect, particularly on the iPhone which more and more in the Deaf Community are choosing for mobile text communication," said Purple vice chairman Ronald Obray.

Features of the app include a proprietary call window that displays user text on a special background, as well as easy call navigation menus. It is a free download and is available now under the title "IP-Relay"
