FlickIM Brings AIM Chat to the iPhone
I was pretty bummed when I heard that iChat was, in fact, not coming pre-installed with the first-gen iPhone. Although in the back of my mind, the idea of iChatting up with my peeps on my phone brought me back to the 2 times I actually ran MSN Messenger on my Motorola Q. 30 minutes later, my battery ran out.
So I was very excited to hear about FlickIM, the brand spanking new application that brings AIM chatting to your iPhone. FlickIM allows you to chat it up right on your iPhone. But the developers didn’t just rest on AIM compatibility. They also built in some pretty cool media sharing options including the ability to AIM YouTube videos and Movie Trailers to stream on a buddy’s iPhone.
Although some were complaining about difficulty connecting to the server, my iPhone loaded it pretty quickly. It’s actually a pretty nifty application that even stores incoming messages that wait for you when you reconnect.
I like this site for using AIM and other programs… www.iphone.beejive.com It works with all the main IM programs.
Wow! FlickIM is awesome. I can’t wait for them to add logging capabilities.
