Review: IM+

IM+ is probably the best instant messaging application for the iPhone. Sure, there are official AIM and Yahoo clients, but no client for Windows Live Messenger. Instead of bothering with a bunch of separate clients, why not use an all-in-one? As usual, I received a “free review copy,” but if that isn’t an option for you, it’s $9.99 in the App Store. Upon adding one or more accounts and signing in, you will be greeted with your contacts list. The IM+ Contact List Tapping the “i” icon to the right of any contact will provide you with details on the contact. A contact’s details, with the address removed for privacy reasons You can also opt into push notifications when a contact signs in. Unless you disable push notifications for the entire application, IM+ will send push notifications whenever you receive a new message from any contact, whether you have enabled push notifications upon their sign-in or not. This keeps you signed in even while the application is closed, and delivers messages, even while you’re doing something else. Tapping on the contact’s name will start a conversation. A conversation Conversations appear using a familiar chat bubble interface, somewhat similar to the iPhone’s Messages app. You can tap the caret-shaped icon to access options to invite contacts and send photos. The Status tab You can use the Status tab to switch between pre-defined statuses or create your own. The latest version of IM+ also finally supports multi-chat. A demonstration of IM+’s new multi-chat ability, showing a conversation with the fictional Miles Stone and a fake Steve Jobs While multi-chat is a step in the right direction, I’d still like to see proper Windows Live Groups support, although no other third-party client has it yet. Something I’d also like to see would be the ability to change your display name and picture from within IM+ as opposed to using a desktop client for these tasks. Overall score: 85/100
