CNET Editors' review
Those strictly interested in a Yahoo IM client for the iPhone could find themselves a shade disappointed with OneConnect, a free application that attempts to weave elements of social networking and an interactive address book into Yahoo's chatting core. While we appreciate the opportunities to scan status updates from pals on social networks, and to build out address books from which we can SMS or call a buddy, these are mostly secondary efforts to buy up social networkers' bandwidth.
Despite some clumsiness of operation (you have to go through a contact's page to send an IM,) there is still enough appeal to make OneConnect firmly worthwhile--notably the ability to SMS or e-mail offline friends and to drop emoticons, links, and photos into a chat window. Also nice is being able to view all contacts or those who are currently online, and saving buddies to your Favorites list to fast-track communications.
Users keen on all of OneConnect's features will find it much more satisfying; regardless, OneConnect begs for a clearer path to chatting and the ability to customize visual options.
Yahoo! oneConnect - a social address book that brings together your people, your life, and all the ways you communicate. Yahoo! oneConnect makes it easy to stay connected and in the loop from a single application. Get a full-featured phone book that can integrate contacts from your Yahoo! address book, iPhone, and your social networks. Connect with your friends via Yahoo! Messenger or SMS. Have fun with emoticons, avatars, and photos. See what's happening on your favorite social networks with an at-a-glance view of status updates, photo uploads, and more. Find your favorite people quickly and call, message, or send an e-mail with one tap.
