Very good, better than nimbuzz
Excellent simple clean interface. history on imo website. an MSN contact on BB couldn't see me online (don't know what app). rooted x10 mini.
Much prefer this to running skype! Tried 3 other im programs but they all lost connection frequently - not this one.
Itll b prefect if the jabber protocol has server and port option.
