Meebo Now Works on iPhone: Ultimate IM

Next Story

Analysis: Has Facebook Been "MySpaced?"

MeeboNot everyone was lining up for an iPhone on Friday. At least, the folks at Meebo, a web-based IM startup, were busy finding workarounds to getting their app to run on the iPhone, which seemed to freeze whenever someone tried to press ‘Send’ after typing a message, among others. Today, it looks like they’ve come up with a few temporary solutions which just might do the trick.

First, a lot of elements of their application were dysfunctional, which can now be accessed by double-tapping and holding. Also, they’ve somehow seemed to have solved the ‘Send’ problem by the addition of a ‘Go’ button in the keyboard layout (which does the work of their Send button). For an iPhone users who wants a Window-y multi-chat/IM experience, the Meebo application seems like their best bet for now.

We have to admit, if we’d known this before we made the top iPhone applications/web apps list, Meebo would have a top spot. Nevertheless, give it a try if you’ve got an iPhone and tell us what you think. If it’s as good as it looks, and if we can expect an actual/official widget application in the future, it could be killer app-worthy.
