AIM client for iPhone
The first known AIM client for Apple's iPhone has been released, allowing users to send instant messages to friends and co-workers on-the-go. The software, which is currently described as "a first buggy version," was released primarily as a usability test, according to the developer. The author has yet to implement suspend functionality, but that feature is planned alongside vibrating the iPhone when an IM is received. "The idea is to provide an 'Adium' for the iPhone, and we're moving towards it," the developer said. Programmers skilled with Objective C and UIKit are welcome to contact the author about helping with the project, as well as users familiar with libPurple who can provide guidance with implementation.
