released a new instant messaging client for the iPhone
/iPod touch. MobileChat (iTunes Link
) allows you to connect to multiple IM services, including:
- Windows Live/MSN
In many ways, this application for the iPhone looks like a cross between Adium
and AIM for iPhone. This application is feature rich, allowing you to take and send images or IM a phone number from any of your 10 supported IM accounts, Most notably, MobileChat allows you to use Apple's forthcoming "Push Notification" system for notifications when the application is closed. This feature is built into this release, but will not be active until Apple "flips the switch." You can download MobileChat
today from the App Store
for $2.99 (USD).
