Can't seem to find any asides from AIM but I do need MSN and was wondering if there were any free Apps.

Also, does the iPad support push notifications for iPhone apps?

Google talk would be great on the iPad.

You can get it online if you sign in to your gmail account via gmail.com, just click the Talk tab.


AIM for iPad is free.

YeH AIM looks great, but unfortunately all my buddies use msn.

Im+ is not free but it is quite good for the money. Especially as it let's you surf the web without having to leave the app which until multitasking is available can be a pretty convenient thing.

The version for iphone does so I can only assume that the one for ipad does as well.

I'm using the ebuddy iPhone app on my iPad and it supports push notifications. Running it in 2x is a bit fuzzy though.

I haven't seen any good free ones specifically for the iPad yet. $9.99 for IM+ seems a bit steep.

The Yahoo Messanger app just got support for MSN this week. Its free, but there isn't an iPad specific version yet (probably coming soon) and i don't know if it supports push.

I was looking for one too and IM+ Looks like the best one, It's free and it's iPad friendly, I have no patience for x2 iPhone apps or apps that have separate iPhone and iPad Versions and this one seems to have it all
