IM+ is just the third IM application to show up for the iPhone OS. Even though IM applications have limited use before the notification service is released, there are still many good uses for IM on the iPhone. IM+ works with the following IM services:

AIM®/iChat
MSN®/Windows Live™ Messenger
Yahoo!®
ICQ®
Jabber®
Google Talk™
MySpaceIM

Would love to see Facebook IM added to the list at some point. The IM interface is pretty good for a basic IM application, quick to connect and good for sending a quick message. Will be good to try this again once the notification service is released. Check back then for an updated review.

IM+ is currently free though I would not be surprised to see it go paid at some point in the future. As it’s free you might as well go ahead and grab it and give it a try if IM is something you’ve been looking for on the iPhone OS.
