This is very cool, I've been using it all day. Unfortunately, it sounds like you'll have to pay something to use it when it's out of the testing phase. :/

Video IChat

I wondering if apple will consider placing a camera on the face of the iphone and incorporate mobile video iChat. How cool would that be!!??:eek::):confused::D

Works great for me. Rather fast too.
Just a couple of issues or questions...

1) Is there any way to show up as a mobile device to my buddies?
2) Is there any way to hide offline contacts?
3) Will I get a vibrate or sound notification if I get an IM and my phone is on standby?
4) How do I put up an away message?

very good styling, matches the iphone perfectly!

just needs a few extra settings and it will easily be the best iphone messenger service!

im amazed at how quickly people are developing these apps, nothing like this has been developed for any other web 2.0 phone apps.
