It took a while (since August of 2011) but today, Brandi Kolmer let us know that their imo instant messenger app has finally launched in App World.
If you're not familiar with imo and what they do, the description is pretty straight forward.
imo for BlackBerry lets you talk to your friends on your imo, Skype, Google Talk, MSN, Facebook Chat, AIM, Jabber, Myspace, Hyves, VKontakte, Yahoo and Steam accounts.
- Voice IMs: Send instant voice messages instead of typing
- File sharing: Send audio, video, and pictures
- Sleep mode: Turn off sound notifications for a set period of time
- Location sharing: Let your friends know where you are by sharing your location
- Chat history: Search your chat history quickly
- Multimedia attachments: Share files and images
- Morse code: Know who messages you without looking at your phone
Before anyone asks, Skype chat is supported on imo for BlackBerry but video chatting and calls over skype are obviously not. Either way, this is a great free
app for all around communication that I've personally been testing for a bit and am very happy to see finally make its way to BlackBerry smartphones.
Hey imo, can you guys continue to be awesome and make an app for the PlayBook too?
