    Overall I'm quite happy with the application, however the main problem at the moment is that the fact that app crashes very frequently. Otherwise with features such as enabling the in-built speakers on iPod Touch whilst using a microphone (which I've been after for a long time

    Theirs mics for the 2G. Just get a 100$ one by apple, make one yourself using tutorials, or pay 20$ for an already made one.

    Got the app, now what microphone should I use? Don't want the Apple ones because I don't get on with bud type earphones.

    got this app this morning and im very happy with it
    i have been using nimbuzz which is a great free app for skype, its got all the same features except adding and pics but it allows you to use many different instant messaging programs.

    i have not had any crashing problems, and im on a jailbroken ipod touch 1g.

    what i do want to see is the ability to stay logged in when you go to the home screen.
