This Week’s App of the Week:

Ever want to Instant Message your friends while on the go? Tired of watching your friends IM using their Sidekicks? Need an IM application? Don’t fret, my friend. Look no further. IMPlus enables you to Instant Message your friends, all from your iPhone or iPod Touch. Because you have the choice of using AIM/iChat, MSN/Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo, ICQ, Jabber, Google Talk and MySpaceIM, you’ll always be connected to your friends. After trying this application out, I have to say, I love the interface. It is simple and easy to use. It even has an Inbox, which keeps track of open chats and any unread messages. It’s about time an application like this was created, because I have always wanted to IM my friends, while on the go. My old phone just did not cut it. It was also very costly, and I hated using the three letters to-a-key keyboard. This is the perfect application for the iPhone or Pod touch because of the keyboard they possess. Also, you’re not paying crazy internet usage fees. 

Surprisingly, I don’t have any real cons for this application, except that it could look a tiny bit better. We should also have the option to change the settings, like our pictures, fonts, sizes, ect. Other than that, this is the perfect Instant Messaging application out there, (that I know of) so far. Search for it in the Application Store. You definitely need to try it out. The best reason: It’s free.
