App Review: i2i Chat

Going in to this app, I expected a little more than what I got. That said, I must admit that this provides for one completely viable iPhone app. My expectations were set a little bit high. At first, I thought it was literally “eye-to-eye”, meaning a video conferencing type app. However, that’s not the case.

What you’re going to enjoy with the application is an instant messenger app free from AIM & MSN and other programs. After creating a username and password, you can immerse yourself in threaded chats much like you can on your iPhone SMS texts. To find friends for this app you can look for more on Twitter and Facebook as well as searching directly for a username.

The best part of the app is the ability to set up the Push notifications. I enjoyed listening to music or watching a video and then seeing the little window pop-up saying that I’ve received a new message. Maybe for the future there can be some sort of audible notification like you hear when you get e-mail and an actual call/text.

All in all, I really loved this. It replaced quite a few texts that I’d normally send to people. There isn’t much of a delay on sending messages at all. You can practice by sending yourself some and see the barely 1-2 second delay. It’s amazingly fast compared to some cell phone providers. So, if you’re looking to lower your text limit, or just want to try out something incredible fun with some fellow iPhone or iPod touch users, this is definitely an app worth downloading!
