    Checked their website (http://www.palringo.com/) and they support MSN, ICQ, AIM, Google Talk, Yahoo, Jabber etc.

    It's a decent app. Not as good as Apollo or Agile but until either is released this will do.

    It's a great start, but it's still got a ways to go before it's perfect; exiting the app doesn't keep your IMs open, and you have to close one conversation down to open another.

    Eh.

    Eh. Downloaded this app, than deleted it 5 minutes later. Seemed way laggier than AIM

    No you don't. Tap on the icon in the lower left corner and you can go back to home and start a new conversation.

    Till background messaging is released by Apple, most IM apps are lacking for me. This one does seem laggy and lacks some intuitive features but it's a start and hopefully will push other IM companies to release their app.
