Review: Verbs IM App for iPhone has a Simple yet Beautiful Interface

Posted on January 24, 2011 by

Verbs is an awesome new instant messaging client for iPhone and iPod touch. It doesn’t support a lot of different IM services, but it does support the only two that I think really matter…GTalk and AIM/MobileMe. The user interface is beautiful and almost looks like a native iOS app.

Another cool thing about Verbs is that it integrates with Droplr and CloudApp to send and receive photos. You can also view downloaded Text, PDF, Office and iWork documents right within the app.

The one thing that Verbs is missing is push notifications. The current version only supports local notifications while the app is running in the background. Push notifications is a must-have for me when it comes to IM apps because they don’t use any extra battery when running in the background. Hopefully this feature will come in a future update.

Verbs is available for $2.99 in the App Store.

    @MacDaddyNews needs push notifications and MSN support then I’d consider it.
