users, especially ones who often use IM clients, will be delighted to know that a new version of AIM
is now available on App Store. What it adds is push notifications support, made possible thanks to the newly-released iPhone OS 3.0
. For those that are not aware of what push notification is, we’ll say it basically enables you to receive notification messages from certain apps directly on the screen, while these apps are closed. This way, you’ll easily know when someone has answered you, for example, through AIM.
The first time you start the new AIM, it will ask you whether you would want to activate push notifications. There is also a number of ways to visualize them: Brief, Sender only, Normal and Full. Both paid and free versions of the app support the new feature, with the difference being the paid one (it costs $2.99) removes all ads.
