Editors' Review


Formerly one of the most popular and customizable third-party clients for AOL Instant Messager, Adium faded from the public eye during development. The supercharged new version emerges from hibernation as Adium X. It supports multiple services, including AIM, Yahoo, MSN, and Napster. Part of what made the original Adium so attractive was its multitude of options, which still forms the core of this revision.

The latest version improves the contact list and features a refined, tabbed interface. Under the hood, the program is now powered by the same open-source core as multi-platform client Pidgin. Despite some quirks, Adium X should please fans of the original and snare new chat aficionados.

"TERRIBLE if you are a former PC user and an MSN Messenger fan!"

August 03, 2008  |  By Kenneth!

 |  Version: Adium X 1.2.7


The fact that you can talk to people who use different Messenger applications.


It doesn't support any of the popular MSN features, like voice messages and webcam. Adium is pretty much like the first version of MSN Messenger that came out in the 90's.

Apple should do something about this, since most young people in Europe and Latin America use MSN Messenger ONLY. iChat and Adium are too simplistic for being good MSN Messenger substitutes.

In short, if you are a MSN Messenger fan, you will be very disappointed and you should stay away from this program. Try Mercury 1.9. It's about 80% similar to MSN.

"crashes constantly!"

July 22, 2008

 |  Version: Adium X 1.2.7


This used to be one of my all time favourite chat programs, easy to use, loved the logging, lots of personalization abilities...


Now each time I attempt to open Adium X, it crashes... completely shuts down. No matter what I try, nada.... I hate that I can't even open it so I can get the info I need from chat logs that I've kept.
