MobileChat IM Client Now Available In App Store
MobileChat, a chat application created by Twenty08, has been released and is now available for $2.99 in the App Store. The app represents one of the most highly anticipated chat applications for the iPhone because of its long list of features and loyal fan base. Besides AIM support, MobileChat supports multiple instances of ICQ, .Mac/MobileMe, Windows Live/MSN, Yahoo, Google Talk, and Jabber accounts.
MobileChat features a unique server-side connection system which keeps your IM sessions active regardless of your iPhone’s connection status. If you need to take a call or check email in the middle of a chat session, your status will remain available and messages will continue to come in. This is also great for users will poor cellular coverage.
Another unique feature of MobileChat is its ability to “push” IM notifications via email or SMS. This feature is a temporary solution until Apple enables true push notifications later this month or in September.
