"A Good Multimedia Messaging Solution"

Reviewed by / May 20, 2015

Text, photo and voice messages are all supported in this well-designed AIM client

THE VERDICT

For ad-free, clean communication, you could do much worse than AIM. While there's stiff competition from the likes of WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, AIM holds up well thanks to a lovely interface and rich feature set.

THE PROS

The UI is clutter-free and intuitive, and there's seamless syncing across platforms (though there are some issues with the desktop platform). The servers seem to be decent, so you can rely on messages being delivered lightning-fast.

THE CONS

Even after multiple updates, there seem to be some lingering bugs: notifications aren't reliable, the display shows 'typing' at the wrong times, and changes to settings aren't always effected. There also seems to be a great amount of spam being sent to AIM users too.

    Where's the Widget? There is no notification that a new message has arrived. Sort of takes the meaning out of 'INSTANT' messaging.

    If you swipe away a notification on the home screen of lollipop, the led notification doesn't go away until you go into the app and read the message. There doesn't seem to be a way to report bugs from inside the app.

    It randomly starts receiving duplicate IMs from people I talk to. I'll sign out and sign back in and it stops, but then after a few hours every message I get from a friend is given twice. Fix this bug, please.

    I decided to try it out because of the good old days. I signed in and got an email telling me to link it to Facebook and google. I went back to the app and couldn't figure out how to do that so I gave up and uninstalled it. I tried, but if basic things aren't user friendly enough to find for a new user it's not worth my time.
