AIM is a well-known application used for chatting and keeping in touch with your friends. It comes with a modern design and high functionality. In order to use this application, you must register an account on the developer's website, but in order to do that, you must have an e-mail account. Also, the users are allowed to log in using their Facebook or Google Talk account. Once you add your contacts, you can choose one of the predefined groups: buddies, family, co-workers, or create new groups for contacts. Also, at any time, you can change the avatar picture or your personal status, in order to reflect your mood best. Also, the application allows the users to chat with other people that use a mobile device, or join a chat room, where multiple users can be invited to participate. Another relevant advantage of using this piece of software is that you can access Lifestream; this is a service that allows you to connect Facebook, Twitter, Myspace and other social networks in order to provide your friends with up-to-date information about you.
All taken into consideration, it is safe to say that AIM is a handy application for Mac that allows friends to share information and keep in touch with them.
