    The problem I have with them BOTH is that they disconnect, but dont actually log you off. No one sees you online, but your phone makes you appear that you are still loaded up. This might have something to do with Edge constantly changing its IP address, who knows.

    It's just that they're both unstable; it does the same on WiFi. I'll donate if a programmer can work on a decent app for iPhone. I've resorted to using meebo for the time being.

    Apollo not dead, they are just waiting for the SDK. According to them.

    I hope they both make a comeback or at least apollo does with some of the features in mobilechat (w/ eventual y! support).

    I've been using meebo, and it works pretty good...not exactly full-featured, but works with many IM services, and runs good on the iPhone...

    hooray for a new iRC client that will be coming out soon. As for the other programs, for other clients, I can only wish. Once the SDK is released though, I'm sure JiveTalk (www.beejive.com) will have a stand alone client, though it will definately be pay.

    Default We need a new chat program
    someone should make a actual chat program similar to ichat. Both mobilechat and apollo crash constantly and lack basic features like making a custom away message, adding, deleting and blocking screen names, who is on a cell phone and other stuff. Meebo and Flickim are okay but no one likes to just leave safari open. A chat program just for iphones would be pretty cool like the blackberry does
    8gb 1.1.1. Iphone Hacked and unlocked with At&t?:confused
