Agile Messenger

Well, I am really impressed! I was reading an article by one of my new favs and I was going to post something about her new article when I noticed a mention of an IM client for mobile devices called Agile Messenger. I duly loaded the page and downloaded the version for my Nokia 6600 phone and I am very impressed. Here is the blurb about the Agile Messenger from their site:

I dig this one. I connected to MSN pretty quickly and the interface is really cool. I started a conversation with a friend and sent a couple messages to her. What is particularly nice about the interface is that you see one line of the conversation in your window, irrespective of the length of the message. When you scroll up over longer posts, they open up so you can read the full message. Nice space saving feature. I had a look at one of my preferred sites to see if they had a review. Unfortunately they don’t and only mention the software as an alternative to some other effort by Orange. You can run a Google Search for Agile Messenger and you’ll find a number of sites with handy info.
