This app needs to be tweaked. I find it strange that when a new buddy adds you, you aren't notified or given the option to "accept". It's terribly annoying and needs to be added. I believe the option to search friends via email should also be available. Thanks if you ever fix it and make it more user friendly.
This app really needs a major overhaul update. The last few days it has been freezing up on me or suddenly closing. Also ever since downloading it months ago, I don't always get notifications when I get new messages until I go back into the app. Please AOL!
Short of a Pidgin for iOS, this is something you either AIM or not AIM. The latest update with groups in the buddy screen sounds good on paper, but has its own caveats, e.g., folded groups block view of contacts in open group, forcing me to scroll more. Some IM clients uses a system "Online" group, which could solve this problem on a mobile device. Alternatively, give user the option to hide groups from main view.
It keeps crossing over with iMessage and sometimes I type in and it says you are typing too fast and ignores it. Also on my computer it won't go to texting. Grabs other emails to use and sometimes even uses my sons. Keep to your own program AOL and leave iMessage crossovers alone. Used to love it
Keep up the good work aoll
This is my main form of communication throughout the day, but like am any others I find myself constantly refreshing the app in order to receive new messages. It takes a while to load messages, and for them to be delivered to my iPhone. I also dislike how my messages are deleted or never reach a person, but I am not notified of this. It becomes very hard to leave a message for someone when you are not sure if they received your previous messages. Other than this, I just wish aim could send video through the mobile app.
You need to figure out how to stop the spam messages...if you do that will be 5 stars.
I constantly have to check & uncheck the Sort Contacts by Availability option to refresh my contacts list.
Notifications do not work 60%of the time.It upsets the ones closest to me when I pick up and reply hours later.Really wanted to like it. : /
A good client for the AIM that is reliable and gets it done! I rely on it.
Delays in receiving messages or messages disappear.
I am stuck in a hospital room almos 2 hours from home rright now with a very sick child and AIM has allowed me to use video chat to see home and my family (including my other 4 kids) and feel like I am there with them briefly. I am grateful for that. Thank you AOL and AIM!
I use it everyday, great app. Only suggestion would be the response time, it's a little slow but nothing that takes too much from the experience.
I love it. I wish it had more sound notifications or allowed us to make our own, but other than that, it's amazing.
Love it... Keeps all my IM'ing centralized!
If you like aim you'll like this
I like aim. Used it for years. Good ap.
AIM does the job.
Syncs and keeps multiple chats going fairly decently Buggy at times, I get messages after shutting down/logging off. Some messages do not sync even though it tells you part if the message in a notification .
I use aim constantly and most of the time it works pretty well but lately my messages tell me that they've been sent but others don't get them right away. It also has glitches when looking at status updates and I can't make updates in Japanese. Other than that it's pretty great.
No longer notifies of chats unless you open and check. Please fix or roll back
I dont appreciate receiving messages much later than they are sent. I know it has nothing to do with my internet connection. Fix it.
I have iPhone 5 and have the latest update on the app. This has been an ongoing issue for me. I replied messages on my phone using this app and the message won't go through. I tested it a few times using my colleague username and can view replies on my phone but my replies will not show on the other parties end. USELESS app.
You would think with as many people complaining about the app not notifying you of new messages UNTIL you open it the creators of the app would find a way to fix that. I have all my settings correct but I'm missing important messages because I'm not being notified when I get a new message.
I love aim and all but I'm having a problem receiving new aim messages. For me, I'll receive it the day after it was sent to me and it's getting kind of annoying...
This app will cause you to miss out on messages and have your friends thinking you're ignoring them. So frustrating!
Terrible. Aim doesn't sync messages from mobile to pc when one of them is offline. Often times certain messages are off sync or not synced at all.
i can't vouch for individual chat messages, but new messages in chat rooms can take up to a minute to load! that is a minute of waiting every time you open a chat. this is unacceptable. also, the chat scrolls down after opening links automatically. it would make much more sense to have a dedicated button or gesture to scroll down. also push notifications never worked for me. im+ is a much better alternative for my uses as it has instant load times.
App gets better then goes back to being awful again. Alerts me of messages, then doesn't show me the message! No longer shows me notifications either and deletes conversations at times. Disappointed!
It won't let me send messages or open it up. Waste of space on your device.
Push notifications still don't work unless I have the app open. My boyfriend keeps complaining that he can't reply to me because it just won't send. I also wish it had to option to post pictures without going through other social media apps. Some of us don't have instagram and Facebook.
I am mainly happy with this app, I use it several hours each day. Occasionally it fails to notify me of a response, so I find myself having to refresh often. Several years ago when I had my blackberry, it would also alert me when a new buddy signed on for the day. That feature isn't available with iPhone for whatever reason. It would be a better addition to the next upgrade.
Ever since the last update I can't sign in or send messages or anything
I'm satisfied with usability of this app. The keyboard is easy to use and the messages get there quickly. That's all I can ask for, at this time.
Works good when I can't log into AIM on my computer.
Five stars..use it every day.
I would give it my greatest rating ever, but it works fine as advertised. One thing I wish it did is I always have to go in to clear the messages that I've read them other platforms running AIM. but that's a minor thing.
Just what I wanted. Stable app that let's me use aim from my phone.
It's a great app I'm happy I can easily sign in because it remembers my sn and my password. I just wish I could link my sn's together and the notifications worked all the time.
I like it. No issues. Good notification system. Works very nice on 5S. Totally mirrors your Mac desktop iChat app, if you want it to.
I like it.
doesn't notify me when i have a message, even when its enabled to! says message failure way to much when my service is fine!
I no longer receive notifications when I receive messages. I have to long in to see them. This issue started only recently. Please fix soon!
Keeps me in touch with others
Works great !!
This app is a lifesaver when I'm traveling and need to communicate with my team quickly.
Often doesn't send messages when they're sent. Also, must manually enter AIM emoticon codes in order to use them. No direct link. How inconvenient when the whole point of these apps is to make things more convenient. Blah.
No issues - it does what it says.
Works fine for the small amount I use it. Satisfied with app
The app sometimes doesn't pull up messages despite the fact it is open when I am on my computer. I don't get alerts despite being logged in. It allows communication at least.
It's the best social app ever! I haven't had any problems with it yet and it's a great way to keep in touch with friends and family.
It's a great app. Also when u don't want anyone else to read your txts. You can use it to communicate with only those you need to.
Doesn't alert me when I get a new message, and also sometimes says I'm "sending messages too fast" so I can't even talk to the person, even though I'm not sending them fast at all
Combines AIM, Google Chat and Facebook beautifully..can't ask for more
This app has made staying connected to work and friends even easier. My one complaint is that there are frequently delays in receiving IMs, when compared to my laptop and other connections using the desktop client. These delays can be anywhere from several seconds to several minutes. Overall, a wonderful addition to the iOS for all my devices.
I love the IM power of aim, now, it's available on my phone! I can keep up with my cousin on the go! No laptop needed! ... I sound like an ad.
Both push and sound don't work... Please fix
I read other reviews and they are all lying , i am have no problems from this APP !! Its Awesome
I've been using AIM for a long time to chat. I've used Skype a little as well but seem to always come back to AIM. This app is very slow and you can tell when I'm online verse when in on the computer because it takes a whole for my response. Not at good as the normal application on the computer, but however bareable.
It wont send my messages and it should be compatible with ios7
