Careful, that uses a few (L)GPL'ed libraries like libgcrypt and libotr, so putting that code into the Apple App Store is in violation of the terms of the (L)GPL since the Apple App Store Terms conflict with the GPL.  Distributing GPL software for iOS outside of the App Store is totally clear in terms of the GPL.
