    I have some requests I would like to address, but cannot find a direct link to contact the people who are responsible for developing this app. It's decent but can be a whole lot better and I would like to talk to them directly with my ideas and suggestions.

    For starters I would like to see:

    - Support of multiple accounts
    - A dedicated startup/login screen
    - A way for us to select a picture to use for each user in our buddylist
    - Push support (A DEFINITE MUST)
    - Landscape support
    - A way to turn off vibration w/o turning off the sound and vice versa
    - A way to select different alert tones
    - Fix the annoying nicknames being displaying inconsistantly from the different views. I set nicknames for all my friends on the list, however when viewing the list under the last tab (IM's) it doesn't display the nickname but their actual screennames instead.

    Please add all this and it will be real good to go!

    - i believe there is a login screen, and you can log out by going to My Info
    - push support won't come until that push cloud thing comes in sept.
    - if you set a different picture on your computer, does it sync to the phone?
    - you can turn off sounds and have vibrate only
    - i agree with you on the inconsistent nicknames things

    I'm talking about pictures for my buddies, not mines, and also I want to be able to have sound on w/o the vibration. I don't think that's possible.

    I haven't been able to even use AIM unless I'm using wi-fi, this program fails in so many ways.

    I've heard of people having so many problems with AIM but I haven't had a single one.

    After about 5 min of chatting, messages from other people start to back up (this is all on wifi). like, there will be a good solid 1-2 min of inactivity, then suddenly a flood of previously sent messages comes across...kinda irritating.

    I wish there was a way select your status (such as invisible or away) before the program signs you on.

    -Link support. My friends always send me links in IM's and I cant open them, and without copy and paste, I am helpless. Even beejive and flickIM had link support.

    - Away/Available status arent consistant. I will set myself as away, and then when i go home and open AIM back up, im available.

    To not be so negative:

    If you have aim open, and then lock your phone, without going to your home screen, AIM will continue to recieve IMs and you will recieve notifications while it is locked. However, i dont know how long this stays.
