For those of you who have been using meebo for chatting for some time you better move to another service soon. I chose imo.im and you can even import your chatlog from meebo. Check out http://www.ghacks.net/2012/06/20/mee...istory-to-imo/ for details. The only hard part is inputting all your accounts if you have forgotten passwords over time but even so the process should not take to long.

The thing I liked best about Meebo, was being to simultaneously connect to multiple IM programs at once. I could use Meebo to connect to Google's IM, AIM, MSN, and Yahoo Messenger all at the same time.

After looking at imo.im it doesn't appear that you can do that. You can only connect to one at a time? Or, am I missing something?

imo.im does indeed allow you to login to all the networks at once. First you have to login to each account and then link them before logging out. It took me a couple tries to figure this out. The settings are accessed by left clicking on the little gear on the right top of the window after logging in. This is where you can add accounts as well as link things together. The first time you login to imo.im it walks you through this but I was so new to the service I missed some of the prompts the first time. I had to back track to figure it out. Overall the service is very nice and in some ways better than meebo.

I'm glad I was able to help. It is never fun switching services but at least in this case the process was not to painful.

I have actually used imo.im for a while and its probaly one of the best IM clients I have seen. Its the only one that I know that has SKYPE SUPPORT FOR FREE!!!

But there are a few bugs such as that it does not start up when your phone starts up. There are also no themes. Its still a great IM client for free but its not perfect.

Nevertheless, there are a few good Im clients for android out there and I would include Imo.im as being very close to the best.
