Shape Services IM Plus – Instant Messaging
When it comes to keeping in touch with your friends and families in a quick and meaningfull way, IM Plus by Shape Services brings you the must have mobile messaging application that nothing else can probably beat. Shape Services IM Plus is the complete package of multiple Instant Messaging clients in one compact yet feature rich mobile application that is compatible with all versions of Symbian smartphones of Nokia.
IM Plus or IM+ by Shape Services comes with the most needed feature of absolutely zero costs on per instant messages transferred. This means that using IM Plus you will not be charged for any incoming or outgoing messages to and from the software itself. Whether you are using MSN or Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo, AOL, ICQ, Google Talk etc or anything similar is of no importance here when it comes to cost of messages during a chat or private messaging session.
IM Plus lets you bring all the important activities of social messaging services like sending and receiving multiple types of file transfers including your photos and videos, leave and manage voice messages, participate in dynamic ‘reply to’ style chat sessions, setting status manually and automatically when signed in etc. It is also one of the most award winning mobile applications of all time!
IM Plus presently supports Windows or MSN Live Messenger, AIM Messenger or iChat, Yahoo IM, Google Talk, MySpace Chat, ICQ Chat, Jabber Messaging. Facebook Chat is one of the services that they presently do not support and I guess we can only hope that in the future it will bring Facebook within its supported list of networks.
IM Plus supports a wide range of mobile devices and PDA smartphones, from the Apple iPhone to the Nokia 3230, almost every phone type is supported. Some services however, are offered only in certain high end smartphones and some specific features depend on your mobile device’s capability to run them.
