Editors' Review

Fresh out the gate, Meebo is one of the better free iPhone apps for multinetwork instant messaging, but that's only half a compliment. Not that there isn't a lot to like about it. Its buddy lists show a search bar (though it should remain static as you scroll), it has thumbnail profile pictures, and an icon of the IM network your pal is on. There's also a chat screen to help manage open conversations. If the keyboard is locked away, you can swipe to jump among your open chats. Meebo's support of emoticon is marred only by the inability to let a message fly after inserting a smiley--you have to return to the keyboard view first. While you can manage account data from the app interface, you can't change your Meebo.com profile or photo, and important settings regarding sounds and chat preferences are stored in the iPhone's Setting menu instead of on the app.

Push notification is another great chat feature you can enable with Meebo on iPhone. However, since we found the app constantly striving to reconnect to Meebo's servers during our all-day testing, the message alerts were helpful, but not reliable. As far as free multinetwork instant messager goes, Meebo turns in an easy-to-use app that gets you chatting.

"Keeps Crashing"

February 25, 2010  |  By cust0mb4ll3r

 |  Version: Meebo 1.1

Pros

From what I get even though I can't get in the app for more than 5 seconds:
+ Push notifications
+ Synced with browser-based client
+ Multiple chat accounts in one location

Cons

- Buggy right now as it keeps crashing on my 3G.

Summary

I recently received the 3GS and will see if Meebo is more stable on a more robust hardware platform.

"Good, but a couple major bugs and gripes"

February 24, 2010  |  By gdisaac07

 |  Version: Meebo 1.1

Pros

Excellent usability for a free app. Landscape is fantastic and the push capabilities work well. Allows you to amalgamate all your instant messaging accounts into one simple app.

Cons

When receive a pushed message from Facebook, it doesn't display the name correctly (known bug). Therefore you cannot see who the IM sender is. Also, if you IM on a computer and Meebo's push is on, every incoming message is sent to your phone.

Summary

Great app. If you haven't replaced AIM free version with this already, what are you doing? Best IM app I have ever tried, regardless of the bugs.
