    Hey!
    Is there an app on the App Store that offers instant messaging, on networks such as MSN? I've been looking through the store, but can't seem to find one. Is there one on there?

    Where are you seeing that? Last I heard there were many things holding them back including the NDA status of the SDK (which wasn't lifted until today) as well as differences in system components (QuickTime --> Core Audio).

    While Adium continues in their struggle...

    Note, the following is reworded from MobileChat's site....

    MobileChat already has completed their MobileChat 3.0 for the AppStore (which will have queuing of messages like AIM...hopefully it doesn't sign us out after 15 minutes, though). Of course it has landscape mode, MSN, Yahoo, Google, Jabber, ICQ, .mac, AIM, profile editing, etc.

    It's been done for about a week.

    But problems with their server apparently makes Apple delay the launch. Most people may think "what about Facebook?" Well, this is mostly due to the fact that MobileChat will not be free.

    Adium would be great, however, I think they lack resources and make up **** excuses which alienate me a little.

    I would pay and everything.

    Couldn't agree more

    I am hooked on them with my Mac and would LOVE to see them make a solid app for the iPhone with the AIM-App being such a waste of space, imo
