    I was wondering if anyone was making a new chat app. MobileChat and Apollo aren't very stable they either crash or freeze up the ipod. They're good programs but I was wondering if anything more stable was coming out. Do you think someone can just mod the MobileSMS app? to make it work for aim or msn or whatever messenger you use. like you hit the + symbol to go to your buddy list and there would be your list and maybe settings at the top and switch account/sign off. That im sure would be hard to do but it would be a nice app. unless ichat comes out from apple =] which i doubt @_@ haha

    You could always check out meebo. It isn't native but it works great (and you wouldn't need a chat app if you can't get Safari).

    Yes, definitely, meebo works charms if you are having issues with Apollo!

    i use jivetalk and it works very well. in safari, bookmark or goto http://iphone.beejive.com

    in 1.1.3, i hear you can turn bookmarks into items on the springboard, so yuo can try that if ya want.

    You can FIX Apollo from crashing.

    FYI... Look for a thread that talks about fixing Apollo.

    It's basically.just replacing the hosts file within Apollo.app folder in Applications folder.

    I've added it here for your convenience.

    P.S. When you've downloaded it, rename it from HOSTS.TXT to just HOSTS and add it where i told you
