Geek Tip: Using Chat On The iPhone

With so many bells and whistles on my new iPhone, I'm still learning the ropes of various applications, including chat. Unfortunately the built-in iPhoneChat client isn't the greatest to say the least. It can only handle ten minute chat sessions, has interface glitches, software issues and sadly only supports AIM. Consequently, I was curious to see what else I could use to make my chat experience more pleasurable. I've provided some suggestions below which I've found to be the best iPhone IM clients.

  • JiveTalk: JiveTalk by beejive is a beautiful IM program for the iPhone that looks similar to iChat (with the pretty bubbles), is very fast and supports AIM, MSN, Yahoo, GoogleTalk, ICQ and Jabber.
  • FlickIM: This chat program, specifically designed for the iPhone, allows you to send YouTube videos and Apple movie trailers over chat. FlickIM can load on the Edge Network in four seconds, whereas other chat programs like Meebo take 20. Probably because it only supports AOL’s AIM, whereas Meebo integrates many clients at once.

I just tried it on my iphone and it gave me the same error. I had tried the jivetalk one previously which worked OK.
