    Yep. A Live Messenger App, or even one that just supports Msn accounts, is very much needed. :(

    MSN on Apple's iPhone?

    I think it would look bad, for Apple.

    i think it would look bad if apple started stopping competitors from writing applications

    only the same way messenger for mac does. MSN messenger is the biggest IM service here in the UK, dunno about anywhere else, it's the only thing i talk to people on. Not through choice of course but no one else has iChat

    Even though I only use AIM, I am hoping that Adium puts out an application. Trillian also has Astra in the works, which will probably end up as an app on the iPhone soon.

    I think meebo.com has a mobile site designed for iphone use wwwm.meebo.com I think it is....

    I use meebo at work as we're not allowed to install msn and its great - can get all my accounts on it gmail, yahoo, msn. Not sure what it looks like on the iPhone though as I've not got mine...Tomorrow though !!!

    Can someone log onto it with their iPhone and see what its like.

    Everyone in the world I find uses MSN, its only people in the states who use AIM. I'm bummed. They have IMing for one country, not 70 they are releasing in. :rolleyes:

    Palringo have announced they will be releasing an IM application supporting MSN, ICQ, AIM, Y, GTalk, Jabber, GG.

    It's not available on the App Store right now though.

    Gtalk please!

    I hope this comes soon. And perhaps Google will release their own Gtalk client -- my friend has a Gtalk client for his BlackBerry.

    Please, Google, please!

    Where's Apollo or that other jailbreak IM program? Didn't I read something like back before the SDK was even announced that Apollo was going to hold off on further development until the SDK was released to make a legit app? Nowhere to be found.

    I'm hoping for Adium with a gChat client!

    MobileChat will support msn, aim and a lot more!


    It was the coolest app for a jailbroken iPhone, now wait till they release it...

    Just so I'm clear -- If i'm using the AIM client, and I open something else (ie. mail or safari), I will NOT receive any notification that I received any IMs until I open AIM again? Does it even show any number indicator (badge) next to the AIM icon before I open it?

    Correct - that should change in September, though, when the push service becomes official.

    Where can I find more info on the push service? And will they charge for it?
    Thanks
