iPhone IM+ App Review: PUSHing You to iPhone Addiction

iPhone owners were waiting long for Push Notifications to come our way. After an initial delay, iPhone OS 3.0 finally saw Push Notifications arrive! One of the best things about Push Notifications is that it can save your battery instead of having background apps running.

This is especially important when it comes to instant messaging applications on the iPhone. Now, with Push Notifications you can be instantly notified via a pop up when somebody sends you a message. In other words, when you exit the app, you will still be “online” allowing friends to message you all day long. Sweet!


IM+ All-in-One Instant Messaging App: It’s One Powerful IM Solution

I was excited to use IM+ after they announced they would be supporting Push Notifications. I downloaded and installed the app. Setting up all my IM accounts was a breeze. IM+ supports the following (it’s a huge list!):

– Twitter
– Skype Chat (limited to 1 hour push session)
– Facebook Chat
– Yahoo
– MSN/Windows Live
– AIM/iChat/MobileMe
– ICQ (do people still use this?!)
– Google Talk
– MySpaceIM
– Jabber

Whoa. Yes, that’s right. The latest version of IM+ supports 10 messaging networks! I setup my Twitter, MSN, and Google Talk accounts quickly and easily. You can toggle which accounts you want ON/OFF at any given time.

Here are some KEY features of IM+:

– Support for the most popular IM networks
– Built in browser so you don’t have to leave the chat
– Push for all networks
– Send Geo-location to friends (and use Geo Status)
– Record and send voice messages

After getting setup, using the app was extremely straightforward. The layout is simple with tabs along the bottom for switching from contacts, inbox, favorites, status, and a more tab for accessing settings. Tap on a friend and start chatting right away. There’s an option to hide the keyboard which frees up precious screen real estate.

What I found really neat was how easy it was to switch between chat windows. Just swipe to the left or the right with your finger and you can keep up on all your active chats. So easy! Also, you can choose different wallpapers (or use your Photo library) to jazz up your chat window. Landscape typing is also included too.

You can set your status on IM+ to the following status modes:

Online
On iPhone with IM+
I am here
Away
Invisible
Offline

IMG_1632IMG_1636

There is a default auto reply that sends your contacts a message that you’re on IM+, and that you will read their message when you launch the app again. This can be handy to let your friends you’re not ignoring them, but can also be highly annoying. Some friends complained, so I left it on for giggles. I’d message them, close IM+, and let them face the dreaded auto-reply! Suckers! ๐Ÿ˜‰

To fully optimize IM+, I turned off the sound notification and left vibrate ON. I actually ended up turning vibrate OFF after a while because my iPhone wouldn’t stop buzzing from all the push notifications. Playing golf with a buzzing iPhone on your belt doesn’t help your game!

You can set the number of hours/days you want IM+ to be connected. This is a great feature as obviously you don’t want push to be pounding your iPhone while you’re sleeping. The IM+ team really did their homework with this app as it covers a tonne of features and is very user friendly.


How Well Do the Push Notifications Work?

Push works amazingly well. If someone sends you a message on any IM network, a pop up window will appear on your homescreen just like receiving an SMS. The actual message appears, and from there you can choose to close/view the message. No longer will you have to check for twitter replies or direct messages, they’re coming to your iPhone now!

IMG_1635IMG_1634

Should I Buy IM+? Is it Worth My Precious $9.99?

Yes, if you’re looking for a pretty feature-rich iPhone IM client with Push. IM+ is extremely well-made and it’s the all-in-one IM client with Push that we have been waiting for. There are tonnes of features, support for multiple IM networks, and the most important point of all: it works well. IM+ received every single push notification to my iPhone 3GS.

The only downside to IM+ that reloading the app at certain times, it took longer than usual for my liking. Also, I experienced one crash with the app over the past two days of usage. Aside from that though, another downfall is that IM+ is going to keep you absolutely glued to your iPhone!

Your iPhone battery is going to take a beating with this app. Not with Push, but with constant messaging back and forth with friends. However, I have been able to consistently last an entire day/night with Push on and constantly bugging friends on IM+.

There are other Push IM apps out there. Another worthy contender would be Beejive, but I haven’t used that app yet. Beejive does not support Twitter or Skype chat though. Do your homework if you’re really torn on which one to plunk ten bucks on. Or you could win a copy of IM+ for free…WHAT?!

    About time, I’m surprised Apple didn’t release their own push chat program with 3.0 to tout this feature.

  • I tried the lite version of this app and all my push went to email. I could get it to alert me like SMS. I’m guessing that is only a feature in the full version? if so, nice contest!! I need a good IM app.

    Hmm… Turn on push, turn on annoying sound, go to work and WATCH as they go mad by the end of the day. Bwahaha…

    In all seriousliness, from what I’ve heard about this app from you guys and my good friends over at Mac Rumors, I really should get it. I’m still a bit… Eeh on the whole $9.99, but being able to keep in touch would be great. I don’t see battery being an issue because just last night, I ordered myself a Richard Solo 1800 (with wire).

    Thanks for the update.

    I barley used IM+ lite. I find the fact that every time I go back to standby or home screen, IM+ lite will disconnect. With this new push feature, it will allow me to stay online even when I am in standby mode. Great feature. On the down side, I will only work for me when I am connect to wi-fi (no data) =(

With this new push feature, it will allow me to stay online even when I am in standby mode. Great feature. On the down side, I will only work for me when I am connect to wi-fi (no data) =(

    Hey there,
    I have been waiting for applications to start using the Push notification, and I think I might get IM+ just because I want to kick the tires of the new technology. It’s an addiction, I’m afraid…. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for positing this review! I just got my shiny new iPhone 3GS yesterday with an awesome data plan, so now I desperately need an adequate IM client to keep up with everyone, wherever I am! I’m so excited, I hope I can either be able to afford this or I win a promo code ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m a poor university student so all my money goes to school ๐Ÿ™ So to have this by the time school starts again would be awesome!

    …On my old iphone (1st gen), I used web messaging services like ebuddy… because i was desperate and it was free.

    PS: Thanks for this blog, its awesome, I’ve been following it ever since I got my first iphone – early last year. Its been so helpful! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!

    Very good review of the application!
    I would love to win a copy of the app.
    I use eBuddy for a while. It is not too bad for a free app, but it does not support twitter and it push your message only for 30 minutes after you quit it.

    I’m currently using Beejive, but it doesn’t have nearly as many features as IM+. I would love to win a promo code. Push is honesty amazing. It works flawlessly. I hope they come out with push for Gmail very soon. Fetch is okay, not ideal. I really like the concept of setting a push timer. I would love to set up gmail push (if it every comes out) to push only during the daytime. That would be perfect!

    Yea, I was wondering about that too. Is this application not use-able in Canada since you mentioned you would require a ‘US’ itunes account? Nonetheless, pls do count me in for the contest! I’ve used e-buddy app with their 30 minutes Push time limit. It isn’t bad but not good either. Sometimes, it notifies but looses some of the incoming messages. It’s still quite buggy. Well, what can you expect from a FREE app.

    Yayyyyy! In my frequent Blackbery vs iPhone battles w/ my friends (which I always win, of course), the top disadvantage was having to keep the IM app open, as we are all obsessed with MSN… Thanks for a great review!

    This does look good, but if anyone is looking for most of these features for free, you can try eBuddy. It has no ads, a good interface, and even has push (but only for 30 minutes after you close the app.)

    I don’t like to stay signed in (push notifications) so for me eBuddy is a pretty good solution. Just putting that out there.

  • This is my first time to read your article, i subscribe to receive email from you but never actually read them, then this caught my eye, my way of communication is IM via yahoo and gtalk, now i have learned how to download skype, i will give it a whirl, hope i get this app, i am sure this is a great app replacing yahoo messenger and gtalk. keep up the good work and helping and informing iphone fans. its my best phone ever this iphone.

  • Billy

    I think this is a cool app, however, I wish the push notifications were longer lasting when using Skype (now I understand what that one hour limit meant in the blog above) as I use Skype more than any of the other IMs. Hopefully they will correct this in the next update.

  • Billy

    This is a cool app, however, I'm it seems to be very buggy with Skype. Besides that one hour limitation, I keep getting an error message whenever it tries to log into my Skype account. Hopefully Skype will issue an update to include push notification for the Skype app (that would be sweat!)

  • Billy

    oops sorry for the double reply…my computer crashed when I was submitting the first one!

  • NITESH JOSHI

    I have not tried this app, but have used Fring – hope this is better. I read about using SKYPE calls without having a WIFI feature in IM+ which is definitely a plus point here. I will be very happy if I am one of the lucky guys to get a free promo code – i would be able to remove skype and fring from my app then.
