imo.im has recently announced the release of version 2.0. of the imo messenger for iPad. The app features high-quality voice calling functionalities that allow friends and family to stay in touch without utilising data usage when connected to Wi-Fi connections. The instant messenger client also adds a brand new UI design that the developers claim streamlines access to conversations by combining messages and contacts for a faster and simplified chatting experience.
The imo messenger application allows iPad owners to make voice calls to imo messenger users on all iOS devices and Android platforms over 3G, 4G connections as well as Wi-Fi. The function is ideal for anyone looking for a cost-effective way to stay in touch both domestically and abroad.
With the goal of simplifying how users interact with the app, the new version's streamlined design improves the chat experience by combining the layout of messages and contacts to create a user-friendly experience. The new design also includes a status indicator bar in the messaging tab that changes colour based on a user’s current status, as well as a similar bar in chat windows reflecting one’s contact's availability.
The popular app messenger now gets some brand new features
imo.im's iPad app now offers group photo sharing and real-time uploading of photos, which is a new feature introduced to iPhone users last month. This means that users can take photos with imo messenger's native camera and automatically upload those images to their chat groups in real-time. The new features and UI redesign follow similar and recent updates for imo.im's Android and iPhone applications.
"Our VoIP feature and UI redesigns for iPhone and Android have proven extremely popular, and many of our users have requested these same functionalities on our iPad app," said Ralph Harik, CEO of imo.im. "By providing a more consistent experience across all of our platforms, we feel this streamlines the communication process, making it easier for our users to stay in touch using multiple devices."
As a part of the announcement, the developers claim that the imo messenger is a top messaging and mobile communications client with more than 5 million mobile downloads and 700,000 unique daily users delivering an average of 50 million messages per day. imo messenger supports both private and group chat conversations with the ability to share multimedia files, send voice and text IMs and conduct quick chat history searches. Unlike competing applications, imo messenger's cross-platform service and simultaneous sessions allow you to switch between desktop, mobile and tablet devices without losing conversations.
In August, it was reported that popular instant messaging aggregator app imo.im had updated its iOS version. The update enabled free VoIP calling on iPhones running iOS version 3.1 or higher. Free voice calling over Wi-Fi and mobile data connections had already been present for Android devices running the app.
At the time, an official announcement by imo.im stated that the instant messaging client connected users to 11 third-party messaging services. iOS device users can make voice calls to contacts using the app through Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G Internet connections. imo.im's free voice calling helps in eliminating the cost of mobile minutes, without any loss in the quality of the connection, and when the handset is connected to Wi-Fi, it requires no data usage.
