Thread: ApolloIM vs. Mobile Chat
09-05-2007, 12:14 AM #21
I checked the processes, and mChat floats consistently at 4 or 5% CPU while Apollo spends more of its time at 0%. This would make me think that Apollo is easier on the battery except it does some weird, but less frequent, spikes to -2000% CPU. So who knows which is more battery friendly.Various 'Books old and new

ah that would explain it, well if there is a message bubble... and although its not on wifi yet apollo is better at this point... when can we get something besides AOL?

i have no problems connecting via wifi. however, some people have said its certain router configurations causing issues, so im sure something will have to be sorted out in the source to eliminate that problem.

For now, I use both since I have two accounts. I like the Away message with Mobilechat. I like the SAVE account function with ApolloIM. I'm sure in a couple of weeks both will have similar functions..hehehe

Apollo doesn't work most of the time for me.

Just got the new apollo update! it no longer signs off after you go back to the home screen or to another application. It does sign off after going from wifi to edge or vice versa. So right now, Apollo is better than mobile chat. Still need a more efficient notification when in the buddy list, as well as buddylist organization. But its a heck of a lot better than nothing!

As soon as one of them supports MSN then it will be better. Who uses AIM anyways?

Yah wow! its pretty cool! i think im still gonna stick with apollo cause it has the little bubble which i find very heplful. Some features desparately needed are available/away messages and the abality to use your photos as buddy icons. Those would be sweet!Sent From My iPhone

Go to var/root/library/preferances/com.twenty08.MobileChat.Accounts
Take that file and open it in jEdit and remove the account you want deleted. Then put it back ont the phone and reboot.
Now to the sound files:
Applications/MobileSMS.app/ReceivedMessage.aiff and SentMessage.aiff
Replace them with whatever you chose.

i really need mChat not to scroll to the top of my conversation every time i send a message
09-15-2007, 05:18 AM #40
mobile chat's newest version puts it in the lead for now
i like the sound and the notification icons, plus it saves my account
most importantly it has a settings screen
