    I did a search online and found recommendations for Beejive and IM+, but both of those have really bad ratings on itunes.

    Any good alternatives?

    I just use the default google hangouts app. It's pretty good imo

    Thanks, but I don't think that's going to work for me. The thing is that the Google Talk app I use is for work purposes, and the Gmail account on my phone is for personal use, so when I sign into the Hangouts app on my phone, it goes to my personal account instead of my work account.

    Any way around this?

    Can't you sign in with another account and switch as/if needed?

    Aside from that, it's worth trying some of those multi-IM clients, like IM+, Beejive, Trillian, etc. no matter what the ratings might be, just to see for yourself if they would work for you or not (as at least sometimes the ratings can be lower because of something completely unrelated to the app itself and just some bone people have to pick with the service or even some issues some people are having, but not everyone and perhaps not something you'll run into).
