IM+, one of many instant messaging apps for iDevices, was one of the first major players of instant messaging in the App Store. IM+ was also one of the first to support push notifications back in the iOS 3.0 days!
What made IM+ unique when it first launched was its support for a variety of messaging accounts. For example, IM+ supports the following services:
– Skype Chat
– Facebook Chat
– MSN/Windows Live
– Google Talk
At the time of release, the only downside to IM+ was its large $10 price tag among a series of less than $5 IM clients.
Over the last year however, IM+ has received many interface enhancements such as wallpapers, new sounds, and many customization options that have both made the app even better and justified the price for many. I’ve actually been using IM+ since the beginning and have never even considered another IM client.
Well, to my surprise, today IM+ received a new background wallpaper and icon update (for all iDevices) in the spirit of Halloween. Apparently the background isn’t here to stay, but it’s a great image for those who celebrate Halloween!
