The AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) is a free app that allows you to sign on to your account and view your buddy list and set your status. I have heard some people complaining about this app, but I find nothing wrong with it. It has a decent UI, which allows you to navigate through the options with ease, and it has the ability to set Away, Available, or Invisible. Your buddy list shows up in alphabetical order and it shows who is away, mobile, or available. The actual IMing is easy but there is one fix they could add, landscape. I tend to make mistakes typing in portrait and with the keyboard being bigger in landscape, you make less mistakes. There is no lag that I can find, and everything acts just like your AIM buddy list on your computer. AIM is a simple app that is worth it if you have an AIM account. There's not much else to say.
