anyone know how to get timeseal for FICS on iOS, iPhone and iPad

I"m writing a FiCS interface. It should be nice with engine analysis support in examine and observe mode. But i'm hoping to find fics timeseal for iOS.

I'm told corechess clients online on fics have some version but that app doesnt appear to be available now. Also Chess-wise 3 has timeseal and i've contacted author but no response yet. I may get a response in time but I also may not as it was last updated 2 years ago.

Anyone know where to get timeseal for ios on FICS and also if you know some info on installing it in code.

I thought iOS would not allow apps to launch other processes. That would make use of an external timeseal impossible. So you would have to integrate the code in your own app. The encryption is quite trivial, though. Look for the Open Seal source code.
