I'm looking for an AIM type of chat app that looks and behaves like the built in SMS app. I like the rounded corners of the text field in SMS as well as the handy send button right next to it. Almost none of the chat apps I've seen in the App Store have the same quality as Apple's apps (for chat apps). I wish BeeJive IM didn't have that stupid transparent black popup for typing... it covers up the conversation and looks really cheesy.

Can someone please write an app that looks like SMS, but goes on the AIM network?

Really? Wooohooo! If you made something that looks like SMS, I'd be so freakin' happy. It doesn't have to be fancy and hold every single feature in the world... just keep it simple and make it look good. You did a very nice job on WiChat.

That is exactly why I love Beejive...it doesnt have the horrible text field right above the keyboard so you can see more of the conversation
