    AIM's review

    Published: 2015-05-20, by .

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

    • Nice interface
    • Reliable syncing
    • Robust servers
    • Lingering bugs
    • Loads of spam

    "A Good Multimedia Messaging Solution"


    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 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.


    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.

    You've gotta love a moron company like AOL when they make decisions to update an app that kills its usage on *20%* of all running Android devices. What kills me the most is, it's not like this "upgrade" that now only runs on Android 5.0 and higher is *ANY* different than it was back when it ran on 4.4 devices. Disgraceful.

    This was more useful about twenty years ago. Few people use this, or desktops.

    It looks so ugly on the Galaxy S8. The app doesn't fit the screen at all.
