Top Instant Messaging Apps for your iPad
IM+ is simply the best instant messaging app available for any mobile device. If you have multiple instant messaging accounts you use regularly, and can afford the one-time fee of $9.99, IM+ is a must buy. This app allows you to use your G Talk, MSN/Live Messenger, Yahoo!, ICQ/AIM, Myspace, Twitter, Facebook, Jabber, and Skype. IM+ uses Apples Push Notification so you will be notified of new instant messages even after closing IM+. In addition to being an all-in-one IM client, IM+ can integrate your emails into one email client as well. Emails are also included with Push notifications and IM+ supports Hotmail, Yahoo, and Gmail. For those who have the extra pocket change, for a small monthly fee one can also included speech recognition for instant messaging. Currently
