The imo Instant Messenger app (Free) is a great way to keep in touch with friends on multiple social networks. It supports MSN, AOL Instant Messenger, Facebook, MySpace, and more. Imo is also one of the few chat apps that supports Skype — even Meebo lacks this feature. I like that you can sort buddies into different lists to keep things organized, and the imo app includes a buddy favorites list and searchable chat history. The app supports push notifications, but that feature only works for 72 hours after your last login. Overall rating: 4.5 stars out of 5.
