New Version of Apollo Brings MSN, ICQ and .Mac to Your iPhone!
When the iPhone was released, one of the main complaints was the lack of a fully functional chat client, since Apple chose to release only the SMS program. Then came Apollo and added a client to AIM. That was very frustrating for me, because nobody uses that in my circle of friends, so I couldn’t use my iPhone to talk using instant messaging.
But that doesn’t matter anymore, because Apollo IM Chat Client has finally reached the moon. The new version brings to the game MSN, ICQ (does anyone use that anymore) and .Mac support to your pocket, I mean, to your iPhone. And the best news is that the interface is the same as the SMS function on iPhone!
The interface looks very cool, and it is also very effective. This is the same interface as the chat mode on iChat on the Mac, which I learned to love for many years.
I made a post about this new and revolutionary update to Apollo in A Maçã(The Apple), my own Mac blog in Portuguese, and then I came running here to Coolest Gadgets to spread the good news.
If you own an iPhone, all you have to do is launch the installer, uninstall the previous and useless version of Apollo IM and install the new, updated, bigger (4 MB) and badder version to access the networks of your favorite friends. I can’t wait till they add GTalk support!
