IM+ Pro7 1IM+ Pro has been one of the most popular chat clients in the App Store for a couple of years. One of the best features is encrypted peer-to-peer chatting, which can be added with an in-app purchase. The app has seen many updates and still works great. However, sometimes, new is better.

IM+ Pro7 is the next version of the feature-rich chat client. The user interface has been completely redesigned, comes with off-the-record encryption, and offers free text and messaging in most social networking services, all in one convenient app…

The app still offers users the ability to chat in Skype, Facebook, Twitter DM, Google +, Yahoo Chat, and many more. Log into your various accounts to access your contacts, buddies, and co-workers. Then, start a chat on any of your contacts and hold multiple conversations at one time. You can even have multiple conversations going under the same account at the same time.

If you are looking to make new friends, you can find out more about people around you using “Neighbors.” The location-based friend finder allows you to participate in group chats, “shout” to your neighbor, and find out more about what is going on in your community.

Send and receive text messages, photos, videos, and voice notes. Store your chat histories and access them from any web browser. Keep your chats private using Off-the-Record. You can even print out your chats using AirPrint from within the app.

IM+ Pro7 2Customize the way your chat window looks using different themes, backgrounds, custom sound notifications, and emoticons. Be alerted when someone is starting to type. Have the app send you push notifications so you know when you are getting a new email messages from Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, and AOL.

The reason IM+ Pro7 costs $4.99 instead of being a free app is that the items that are available as an in-app purchase in IM+ Pro are included in this version. That means, you’ll get peer-to-peer off-the-record encrypted chats and Beep, the service’s mobile-to-mobile messenger, included with the download price. You are getting both at a discounted price with the iOS 7 update. Of course, IM+ Pro is still available in the App Store if you don’t want to pay for the additional features. IM+ Pro7 is available for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Download it in the App Store today.

    That’s funny the article says most popular, but I have never heard of it

    • iBanks

      It’s also one of the oldest. Been around for some time.

    • Nate McKelvie

      I was thinking the same thing, I’ve never heard of it either

  • Guest

    I purchased this ages ago for 4.99$, stopped using it..

  • 5ingularity

    I purchased this ages ago for 4.99$, stopped using it..Now they have created a new app, instead of updating the old one

    • Lnds500

      And of course you can’t leave a review cause you have to purchase the damn thing again. How I’d love to down vote them right now. Exactly same situation as you.

    • Jonathan Co

      i am in the same boat as you guys. i purchased the pro version a while ago. now they are making me pay another 5 bucks so i can get the one with the ios7 skin. damn what a rip off

      • Go and check the free version first

      • Jonathan Co

        but the free version has ads. thats why i got the pro version and I never purchased the add ons even in the pro version because i dont need it. i got an email from them saying this app was built from the ground up. yeah ok. way to support their people who paid for their apps.

    • queen_ir3ne

      They did update the old app. It’s the exact same as the new IM Pro7, but with ads.

  • dcIam

    IM+ Pro is re-skinned for iOS 7 and they want another 4.99$. Go F yourself, SHAPE GmbH!

    • Jonathan Co

      exactly. ripoff

  • Matthew Cooper

    People still use this?

  • Diego Gastón Milano

    Indeed the best out there. I’m hoping the iPad version got better too, it used to be a bit rusty but the iPhone one was one of the best back when I used to have it installed.
    It’s expensive, but worth it and the GUI is fairly good.

  • zettt

    What to use instead?

    • macsmister

      IMO or Trillian.

  • Kyanq

    the new one is awesome

    • macsmister

      Does it fix connection issues and do the push notifications stay active for more than a few hours?

      • Kyanq

        the connection is much faster
        if any issues with push, that means you used IM+ on several device. Once I sent support request and they fixed it asap

  • tankienmun

    This is exactly a cheating game so they can earn more money. We paid for the previous PRO version but no more update but the FREE version got update. Now they have another new PRO version again seems asking as to throw in money again. And maybe sooner when iOS 8 or 9 release, they come again a new PRO 8 or PRO 9. I hate unethical developer!! Stop using this!!
