    I have tried "IM+" before but it has bug when you are quitting the program by press home button. It will hide some keys after you re-enter the apps.

    So I finally choose the "imo", it's simple in interface but stable and bug-free.

    Have you pressed the keyboard button in the bottom right corner to bring back the keyboard?

    Yes I have tried both and find IM+ to have bugs, I tries IMO but have found it little hard with the way the windows are for chat and history. The regular version of IMO is what I use on my home computer, but also looking for video chat for yahoo, msn, skype, gmail!

    I like IM+ (Free) and Trillian (Paid). Both allow you to sink multiple Chat Clients (Yahoo, Google, AOL, Facebook, etc) into one location for easy viewing and chatting. IM+ is free so download it and see what you think.

    I use IMO and love it. It's simple and free. I love the tabs at the top that allows you to switch between your different conversations easily.

    So, I downloaded IMO only to find out that it doesn't support .mac or .me. Or am I missing something here?
    My iPad show me as iPad noob? Geesh!

    I would have to say BeejiveIM is by far the best application for chat for the iPhone and iPad.

    I would like to say IM+ Pro however I seem to get a lot of connection issues with my Skype and Facebook accounts. Apart from that it's fine. I am however looking for a new app as well.

    I have been using BeejiveIM for a few days and it is very good, but one thing is missing (Video chat) have not found one that dose video chat for all! That would be a great app for chatting, yes you can download yahoo and skype, but there is not one that dose all with voice and video. That is when iPad will truly be the Real Big thing! Now don't get me wrong I love my iPad and would not trade it for anything but it can not truly replace or past a laptop till it dose the same and more. You will then have everything in your hands!

    Skype now does video chat, it works great on the Itouch, they just need to make a iPad version. It runs on the iPad but in x2 mode it is fuzzy

    Yes Skype and Yahoo both have video chat but is not an iPad app? MSN and Gmail still have nothing, and why has not one of the multi chat programs start using video? I am not a programer but I see the need as very high when you have millions of iPads sold world wide!

    I'm desperately awaiting a way to do gmail video chatting. I use gmail chat almost exclusively and the only way I can video chat and see my nephew is through google video. For some reason my brother's ISP won't allow him to use skype video, we can talk through skype but not video, it's the strangest thing. Tried several diff computers (PC and Mac) and it's a no go. Very frustrating.

    There is no need to wait. Install the free Vtok all and enjoy Gmail video calling.

    Keep in mind, that it only supports video/audio calling, so you can't write text while calling, same as Skype, I believe.

    Anyway, just download it and call all your gmail buddies :D

    Assuming your using an iPad and would like a free app thar consolidates various IM accounts I'd teccommmend the IMO.im
    I have always used IM+ but the idea of paying for it again to include skype doesn't sit well with me besides IMO.IM is fast & simple IM+ could look more aesthetically pleasing with the background n all but to each their own
