Best Windows 8 Apps
28 June 2016
I have used this for a little while for my AIM and Yahoo messenger on my tablet. It is easy to use and with no major negative issues. I tried the free versions to then upgraded to the Pro version. Great Job!

I couldn't get this to link with facebook nor can I get tech support for it. I've tried a couple of times.
12 December 2015
I could not even get it setup in FB. Got stuck in an infinite loop with it telling me to login to FB over and over. Waste of money.

Worthless. Don't get suckered, app has stopped working altogether.

There's some connection stability issues every once in a while, but they are resolved quickly.

Facebook is dead?! asks for extended permissions repetitively.

First Skype, now Facebook. Not much left for this app to sync with.

Their app keeps asking for "extended permissions" on all platforms I use (Windows 8.1, Windows Phone 8.1 and Web) and I can't login. Tried removing them from my Facebook account but it doesn't work either.
Support is non-existent. They did away with the users' forum at their website and all Google results redirect to their new app's page, Sicher. I don't care for this new app. If they're discontinuing support for IM+ Pro, why do they still sell it? Refund people and give up on it.
As it stands, this app feels like a scam.

Your facebook account requires extended permission. Please tap on ok to enable all permissions. Click it, nothing happens. Go to website manually and all permissions are enabled. Won't let me log in. Fuck FB
Update: Facebook integration is 100% broke. Useless.
I was looking for a nice IM app for my surface pro, so I don't have to use the desktop while in tablet mode. Looked around and saw this one was probably the best. Tried it out, thought I liked it and bought the Pro. I was mostly pleased with it but it has several problems. The customization of what you see and things like turning off emoticons either A) don't exist or B) there aren't enough options for.
The program also crashes a lot. And even though I can see the notifications in the top right or on the live board, when I open the app, it'll crash and not update the chat you were having. File transfers on AIM are also pretty much non-functional.
There are also moments where my AIM simply won't connect to the internet. Once again, I get the messages, but when I open the app, the "internet" loading symbol just keeps going and going. Eventually it resolves itself.

will not work
15 April 2015
I had to actually go back to the ad laden version. A recent update has killed any functionality. Will display loading then immediately quit to desktop. Have done removal and reinstall several times and nothing works. I REALLY need this software to work, especially after I DID pay for it just so I wouldn't have ads.

Update: Add sticker support for Facebook, or I'm getting a refund.
It's OK. Doesnt always catch all my IMs so I miss some convos. Not sure if this is googles fault or the App. Buut it's the only app i can use to get hangouts on my phone and metro version of windows.

This is a great app! It does everything that you expect it to do with no shortcomings. Very easy to use!

I like this app, it works with just about every IM client possible and allows you to send and receives IMs. I saw on the mobile version that Skype was supported, but I can't seem to find the option for Skype anymore.
Was this removed?

Like it says above.

I wish it were possible to change the color of the text when sending or receiving an instant message.

While its probably the best of a bad group of IM clients geared toward the modern interface, it lacks a large number of features that would move it to an almost immortal status, instead of one of the mediocre rank and file.
Image handling is poor, images cannot be viewed inline, image and file formats are heavily restricted when they're simply hosting a link and sending that. Why can't I share images directly into the app? Because they're not accepting the image intent from external apps. Well, ill just take a desktop screenshot then right? WRong. 9 out of 10 attempts fail to attach the image, and at least 1 of those 10 completely crashes IM+ pro. 10 out of 10 attempts to paste the desktop screenshot into one note works, so you can't blame MS for this one. Cloud sync for conversations doesn't seem to work well. Two PCs open to the same conversation have different content, there's no hope for cross platform. It appears the comment limit is 1000 and im just getting started.

It's great for instant messaging, especially AIM and Facebook. But, it'd be nice if you could format the chats better and whatnot. Also, the user interface isn't the best, it's easy to use but at the same time really annoying when performing certain actions. But, since it's really the only app that I've found that supports AIM (AOL) Instant Messenger. But, I do like that I have the option to have IM+ Push mode send me emails whenever someone IMs me. I recommend this app, especially for AIM.

This use to be worth using now it doesn't even work anymore just another worthless junk app in the Windows store. Update app is still junk and worthless you need to pay everybody back for pro version you ripped off.

Does everything I need it to do. Great app. Great App

Thank you. this app is very useful :D

Haven't had any issues of late, except for when I'm connected via VPN -- it will always say "connection error" and not log me in at all. Once I'm back off VPN, it works fine.

Notifications need improvement. When a notification pops up for a message I am receiving, if I click the note, it brings the app up but then proceeds to repeat the notification...shouldn't hitting it once bring you right where it needs to be, instead of necessitating a second selection every time? I've actually recommended and installed more than once, make it worthwhile...
To be fair, the performance dramatically improves on the Surface Pro and higher end Windows machines, perhaps they could work on improving the low end functionality? All in all, good work...

I use it on all my devices. My PC for Facebook messaging, because their app is horrible. Using the website messenger means you have to deal with all the stuff that goes with FB. Then my Windows RT tablet. Use it for Google and FB. My phone, only for Google. I wish you guys would change the GUI across all platforms. Its rather ugly.
