Instant messaging from your iPhone or iPod touch can be a great way to stay in touch with friends and family while on the move. Many of the App Store’s instant messaging apps allow you to log in to multiple accounts from multiple services, and they are even able to send you push notifications to notify you of a message when the app isn’t open. Not so surprisingly, all of the instant messaging apps in our Best Instant Messaging App category contain the ability to send push notifications.
The nominees for Best Instant Messaging App were:
- eBuddy by eBuddy
- fring by fringland
- Agile Messenger by Agilemobile.com
- IM+ with Push by Shape Services
- BeejiveIM by Beejive
- AIM by AOL
The winner in this category was BeejiveIM.
