  IM+ - an excellent multi-IM client

I purchased IM+ several years ago, and was impressed with its performance. The latest version supports Yahoo, MSN, AIM, ICQ, Google Talk, MySpace, and Jabber all in one application. You can maintain a connection with all IM services simultaneously, auto-connect when starting the application, and stay connected when using other applications. The conversations are tabbed which makes it easy to switch between chats. The application has been very stable, and has worked reliably with both WiFi and EvDO.

When I first purchased the application several years ago, I did not use IM much. Since I am older, I am more a voice call or email type of guy. I love technology, admit to being a geek, and have made many friends worldwide who share similar interests. I now use IM more often since the immediate response of IM vs. email is a nice change at times, and IM is closer to a traditional conversation than email. Due to the multitude of time zones my new (cyber) friends reside in, I am frequently out enjoying my retirement when many new friends are available for chat. IM+ on my WM Smartphone allows us to chat when it is convenient for both of us without any concern for the IM clients my friends are using since IM+ supports all the major clients. The application includes an optional today screen plugin which shows a summary of the number of friends on-line by IM client. My WM Smartphone has a slide-out physical qwerty keyboard which enhances the experience. I would not enjoy using the application as much with a virtual keyboard.

If you have a need for an IM application on your mobile device, IM+ has earned my highest recommendation.

I was a Palm OS champion for years, but switched to the Windows Mobile platform in 2005. My experiences using my Windows Mobile devices, and other electronic devices will be detailed in this blog. The posts reflect what I like, and do not like about a device, or application. Your needs, and opinion may be different.
