We were lucky enough to get a super sneak peak at another one of JiveTalk's IM clients, again. This time, the iPhone version blessed us. It's still the same multi-IM network JiveTalk we love — just in a web version. They've made it the most usable, and functional Instant Messaging app for the iPhone so far, and mind you this is still technically alpha software. A notable lacking feature is actual alerts, like vibrate, or sound based (they are working on the sound). At the end of the day, this is almost the best of what could be done with Apple's "web only" approach, and they ended up making a pretty usable program. Click on for the full features, screen shots, and release date!

This was from the boy genius. I think they are just testing it. It may cost money though. Maybe Apple will release aim on the iPhone.

Judging by the detail and apparent functionality, I'd be surprised if they didn't charge anything for this. It looks like it took a lot of work to put together.

Yeah, it's pretty sluggish. It works though, and it looks like iChat should. Also, it crashed Safari and sent me back to the Home screen the second time I tried it. Definitely alpha software, but I can't wait until they clean it up a bit and optimize it.

A piece of advice for anyone using Google Talk...

You need to use your entire e-mail address as your username. That's why I was having problems logging in. I think it was hanging up on my login info not being correct.

it's pretty good. I've tried it on my iPhone. It would have been great if it's a widget in the desktop instead. Guess would have to wait for Apple to release a new update and hopefully it has iChat included. Just wondering that if u log on and start a new web page and start surfing elsewhere, would u still be able to receive messages?
