IMO Instant Messenger is a multiplatfrom instant messaging app
IMO Instant Messenger developers keep it up. A few month ago, a pack of updates added new great features like group photo sharing, chat groups, chat history and an enhanced UI. Now, imo.im have announced that NFC and location sharing is ready to use. From now, IMO users can enjoy Near Field Communication that allows them to send their profile to another imo user (only available in some devices). In addition, IMO users can send their exact and nearby locations to their friends. There's even more: imo's new interface combines your chats and contacts into one tab. By simply swiping to the right you now land on the menu where you can view your accounts, preferences, search your history and find friends.
Unlike other similar multiplatform instant messaging apps, there's no need to create an imo account to use the app. You just have to sign in your personal accounts on Skype, Facebook, Gtalk, MSN, ICQ/AIM, Yahoo or Jabber and integrate all those chats in a common account. Those accounts that you sign in and add to the app will be shown on the "current account list". Since then, you will be able to chat with all your contacts from different accounts.
The three buttons top bar allows you to navigate throughout the app. From "imo accounts" tab you will be able to add/delete accounts. It has to be said that these accounts must be previously created, you can't register for an account from the app. Then, the "buddies" tab, you will see your contacts from different accounts integrated, divided on "online" and "offline". You can add new contacts from there. You will be also able to change your "status". Finally the "chat" tab which shows the ongoing conversations.
Bear in mind that you will be able to send multimedia attachments (audio, video, files) as well as having voice instant messaging, from those accounts that permit it.
From "preferences" you can set the notifications (status bar, vibrate, lights, sound...), and the privacy settings (save passwords, auto start, chat history...), as well as the "look and feel" (chat font size, emoticons, buddy icons...). The interface is sober, what helps to the speed transitions between menus and the ease of use. We're missing though themes to customize it.
IMO Instant Messenger has been developed by imo.im, a promising developer who has just launched this app on market, but with remarkably success.
There are coming lots of this kind of cross-platform instant messaging app. IMO IM is offering though, some interesting features that can overcome others: no need to create an imo account, ease of use due to its simple interface and variety of accounts allowed. Great app.

Loved it because it used to support multi protocols and which was the primary reason I was so royal. But it is no longer now.
Uninstalled. A customer no more
I've cancelled my subscription now that they dropped third party support. There are plenty of chat services to choose from. What IMO provided was a way to chat across services in one place on one app. This made its function more unique. Now it's just
I don't need another im service, I want an app that consolidates my existing ones.
Now that they no longer support 3rd party messengers it's useless. I only used it for that reason and now that it's gone, so am I. A good app gone to waste.
good game because you can keep in touch with your friends.
