    "Two Words "Bull, And S***".!"""

    December 23, 2013  |   By DizzyPuffs

    Version: AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) 1.0.1.2

    Pros

    Pros? I guess you can download the better version which is 70134 or something.

    Cons

    not even worth the time to type, older version works great this one is a derogatory Statement/downgrade. >:(

    Summary

    "Shhhh, No words..." http://www.oldapps.com/aim.php?old_aim=48?download site. sorry if I offended anyone by my opinions.

    "Stop trying to break things that aren't broken"

    June 8, 2013  |   By Bostongirl084

    Version: AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) 1.0.1.2

    Pros

    You can still talk to people--kinda

    Cons

    You no longer have a profile
    You no longer can have multiple screen names on at once
    The editing options are weird
    Not everything needs to be connected to facebook
    No chat rooms like the old days

    Summary

    BRING BACK THE OLD VERSION

    "What happened?"

    February 8, 2013  |   By Stinger15

    Version: AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) 1.0.1.2

    Pros

    You can still sign on and talk?

    Cons

    The interface went from awesome, to decent, to crappy, to "why god?". The settings went from the royal king's feast, to a poor man's food cabinet. The options. I'm sorry, but AOL officially made everything they make suck worse than a cheap handheld vacuum cleaner.

    Summary

    Overall, I will probably never leave AIM version 7.5.14.8. If you want a good AIM program, search in google "download aim 7.5.14.8". You will be glad you did; I wouldn't even hover over the download button for this one.

    "I liked it when it worked"

    November 11, 2012  |   By poulstaun

    Version: AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) 1.0.1.2

    Pros

    Clear and easy to use..well functioning also with Face book-with cam and all-If only it continued working I would have been happy to give it 4 stars

    Cons

    It is like its only made for USA citizen.
    So being European U have to add an american zip.
    After some time using; there suddenly no longer was connection to it

    Summary

    when it works--then it works well

    "It's okay but..."

    October 12, 2012  |   By Eblobulator

    Version: AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) 1.0.1.2

    Pros

    No really pros about it...

    Cons

    I think the layout sucks big time. Before I was able to transfer folders that were huge in size to my friends. Now with this new update, I only have a 200mb limit, which is REALLY stupid as hell. I'm going to try and find the older version.

    Summary

    Honestly if any of you have a version prior to this and have NOT upgraded, do yourself a favor and don't. This new version sucks big time.

    "I'm happy with what little I wanted from it."

    September 15, 2012  |   By jas818

    Version: AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) 1.0.1.2

    Pros

    I can be seen or stay invisible when I don't want to be bothered and I can send a message to a cellphone.

    Cons

    I cant edit some phone numbers and contacts with out having to delete it and start over.

    Summary

    All in all I like it. It works for me I think its a cool tool.

    "Mess Made From Good Simple Thing"

    June 29, 2012  |   By R. Gengerke

    Version: AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) 1.0.1.2

    Pros

    Version 7 -- which mysteriously predates this -- was actually quite functional as a 1-trick pony.

    Cons

    This is a bloated screen and resource hog that takes away a simple, intuitive interface and replaces it with a big tray full of glop.

    Summary

    Leave it to AOL to take a good recipe for chocolate chip cookies and add anchovies. The older AIM was simple, fit snugly and compactly against the side of the screen & did its admittedly basic work with minimum effort. This version is cumbersome and demands too much thought in order to simply interact with another person. All the old options are gone, too. This sucks in a VERY big way -- so big, in fact, that already I see it being dragged down my Uninstall drain by its own embarrasing weight....
