i actually like the apollo app. of mcourse it disconnects sometimes if you go away, but thats something they are still working on (i assume) and as of now i don't know any app that ios more stable

I have both the Apollo IM and Mobile Chat (v.1.2.6) and I definitely like MC a lot better. It has a better user interface. I do of course get logged out after a while but I guess I've gotten used to it over time.

All the web apps kinda suck, IMO.

If you already have unlimited text-messaging or don't mind paying a little extra for it each month, just use SMS-to-AIM. I use it every day and it works great. I've set up all the numbers to text to for login, logout, buddy list, etc. as contacts so it makes it real simple. It'll feel a little clumbsy at first, but once you know how to do it, it works like a charm (and is MEANT to... all phones can do SMS-to-AIM)

Biggest benefit is that is works just like any old text messaging... you can sleep your phone and you'll get notified when a new message comes in, even if through AIM... no need to use WiFi and kill your battery or keep a web browser open all the time. Like I said, I use it every day.

This is NOT a mod... it will work on any iPhone right out of the box. The biggest downside is that is uses SMS so your regular messaging fees are going to apply. I have unlimited messaging anyway, so it doesn't matter to me.

I believe unlimited texting is like $5 or $10 a month, so it's really not a big ouch. Then you don't have to worry.

Haha but they are very very good at doing just that, getting people to spend more and more money. Just the other day I signed up for Ringback Tones for my iPhone, it's "only 99 cents a month" (plus $2 for every tone you buy, which expire after 1 year) but I love the feature. Well, my friends do at least.

I pay about $150 for 3 phones (one iPhone) on 1 family account, all with unlimited texting, so I honestly don't think it's a bad deal.
