What's New in Version 8.7.2
Stability improvements and bug fixes
Don't bother to get this app ...
This app keeps dying! Just when I think I'm getting an IM from someone I look and it says it's timed out!!' It even uses the same message alert you chose for messages, to tell you, "Sorry, your app has timed out. You will need to restart it." Seriously?
There's no option to have it stay alive continuously, which is what just about everybody who's using this app will want! And it's useless if anyone tries to reach you when it's "timed out" because now you're "offline"!!
Who steps away from their smartphone? It's "always" on, and it's always ready ... except for the IM+ app This app keeps dying! Just when I think I'm getting an IM from someone I look and it says it's timed out!!' Seriously?

Who steps away from their smartphone? It's "always" on and ready ... except for the IM+ app, which dies after a few hours and goes useless mode (offline).
If you're wanting something to be able to stay online and chat, THIS IS NOT THE APP YOU WANT! It dies, after only a few hours and you are then unreachable.
If you're wanting something to be able to stay online and chat, I suggest you look for an app designed by someone who actually uses these apps and knows what you're looking for in a communications IM app.
A little slow and needs an update but does the job
Does the job for the most part. It's a little sluggish and seems a bit outdated, but it seems to work better and more reliable than others. I bet a good update and refresh could make it great. Ehh good for now. Would be nice to have Facebook most notably or just more options. I'm sure they can't offer them due to the site itself allowing so but I'm sure definitely more than offered, more options would be nice but connects to the one I purposely got it for so good for now. Not a bad app it's a keeper for now at least.
buyer beware? not bad but a few setbacks
i love this app and would love to give this app 5 stars but unfortunately i've had some problems with it that i never had before the past couple updates. i only use it for instant messaging on aim (since aim's app doesn't offer support for multiple screen names), so i can't testify to it's performance for the other services, but my experience with the app since this most recent update has been so-so. the problems i've been experiencing are long connecting times, abrupt disconnects and prompts to reconnect, messages disappearing from your chat history when the app is closed or refreshed - just to name a few. something to keep in mind if you're looking to try this app. i'd love to see shape improve these bugs because the app is pretty nice aside from the issues with it's functionality.
