iPhone: MobileChat

This is a pretty cool application for the iPhone that is open source. It fills in a gap for instant messaging that you just don’t have natively. MobileChat currently is probably one of the most efficient footprints when it comes to AIM clients for the iPhone and runs at about the same speed on both the EDGE network versus the WiFi network. That says something for efficiency.
There isn’t too much different as far as IM clients, and it also has sound notifications and the abillity to suspend but stay online. Pretty interesting little client considering that most mobile devices need IM clients. The iPhone is no different. Should be interesting if this application starts implementing other protocols into it and becoming an all-in-one client.
