Android App Tablet Review: IM+ Pro

by Phil Hornshaw

It’s a bit on the pricey side, but that’s because IM+ Pro funnels all your instant messaging needs into a single place, making it easy to carry on conversations from multiple sources on your tablet.

The app is compatible with more than 10 instant messaging services, including Google Talk, AIM, Facebook chat and Skype. You can add all your accounts and the app will automatically build a contacts list to include everybody. Tap on a contact, and you can start a conversation from within the app. Receive a message and you’ll get a push notification.

The only real drawback of IM+ is its cost, although there’s a free version available to try. If you’re a messaging fiend though, $10 isn’t a bad price for the convenience IM+ Pro offers.
