Meebo Brings Dedicated App to iPhone


Popular multi-protocol instant messaging service Meebo has released a free dedicated iPhone application that appeared in the App Store yesterday. Meebo allows users to connect to nearly all of the major IM services, including AOL/AIM, Yahoo!, MSN/Windows Live, Gmail/Google Talk, Facebook, and MySpace.

Meebo's iPhone application offers push notifications, seamless shifting between EDGE, 3G and Wi-Fi networks, and automatic reconnection following loss of coverage. It also integrates with the Meebo.com web interface, synchronizing chat histories, and offers a built-in web browser for opening links.


Meebo users on the iPhone were previously limited to an iPhone-formatted version of Meebo's site.
