Skype has a feature of IM as well but still there are better alternatives to this tool available in the AppStore. I offer for your consideration few multifunctional applications at low cost you can get from the AppStore to chat with your online friends whenever you like with minimal resources (traffic and money) spent.

IM + Pro: a premium instant messenger client for your smartphone or pad!

IM + Pro will give you the ability to use one of the most convenient IM clients I have seen on your iPad. Functions of this program are uncountable. There is a voice command mode support (though, it must be purchased separately), IM chat and the complete Skype support. You can communicate with users of AIM, Jabber, Google Talk, ICQ, Yahoo, MSN and Facebook. The system of push notifications and message alerts works without any delays or bugs. IM + Pro is one of the best IM programs for an iPad.

Price in the AppStore: $ 9.99

BeejiveIM for iPad was created, foremost, for those who like classic “old-school” chatting from 2000s when there were only few social networks available. With BeejiveIM for iPad app you can chat with people via MSN, Yahoo, Google Talk, Facebook, Jabber and even MySpace. The program’s interface does not stand out since it has quite common design of the regular instant messenger client. However, BeejiveIM is a great alternative to IM + Pro if you didn’t like its interface or options, though there are not many functions comparing to other applications.

Agile Messenger HD Pro – a universal IM client with great social networking support!

Price in the AppStore: $ 7.99

Agile Messenger HD Pro supports AIM, Yahoo, Google Talk and Facebook. The awesome integration with Facebook social network will allow you even leave messages on the walls of friends and news feeds. It also supports sending pictures and voice messages. I can’t call this program ideal, because it requires a lot of memory on any device, and the functions are quite limited, to be honest. In general, the program is for everybody who likes to use IM clients as well as to chat via social networking sites.

AIM for iPad: a free IM client with minimalistic design and options!

Distributed for free in the AppStore

AIM for iPad is a great tool for those iPad users who do not want to spend money on the instant messenger client. Another reason to choose this application is because it is simple and unobtrusive.

The interface is convenient to use and minimalistic letting you use this program both in landscape and portrait modes. You can change a background of the app and even switch between different preset themes of the program. Be aware that AIM for iPad is the best program for users of AIM clients.

Six Tips for Extending iPhone Battery Life

A guest article by Sachin from Powertraveller.

For those who rely on their iPhone for business and work, extending the battery life of their phone can be an essential requirement rather than a source of mere inconvenience. Carrying an additional battery or using a solar battery charger are supplementary steps you can take to ensure you’re always powered up and connected.

1. Turn Off or Limit These Applications and Settings

Push Email – leaving push email turned on means your phone is always connected to the server.

  • Push Notification – if you have a lot of applications that support push notification, this can seriously drain your battery.
  • Fetch – turn off automatic fetch if manual fetching of emails, contacts and calendars is not a problem. Alternatively, you can reduce the frequency at which your phone fetches.
  • Location Services such as Maps, Camera and Compass – switching these off will definitely save power.
  • Wi-Fi – if there is no need to keep scanning for Wi-Fi, be sure to have it turned off.
  • 3G – Go to Settings > General > Network and set Enable 3G to Off.
  • Bluetooth – if you rarely use Bluetooth, such as with a headset or car kit, keep this turned off.
  • Vibration – turn vibration off, especially if you play games.

2. Other Setting to Watch

Equaliser Settings – if you frequently listen to music on your iPhone turn off the equaliser settings to extend battery life.

  • Auto Lock Settings – one minute for the auto lock is a good time frame. This will have the phone automatically switch off the screen after one minute of inactivity.
  • Screen Brightness – screen brightness is one of the biggest drainers of your iPhone battery. Dim the screen brightness to a degree that is comfortable for your eyes.
  • Other Background Services – turn off all background programs and services that are not being used.

3. Keep Software Updated

 

Make sure you have the latest software updates on your phone. This not only helps with syncing with your Mac or PC, it can assist with extending battery life by making all applications and settings work more effectively.

 

4. Buy Songs and Applications on iTunes

If you have purchased songs and apps through your phone, you will have noticed the effect on your battery life. Purchase through iTunes on your PC or Mac where possible to avoid taxing your battery during extensive download times.

5. Battery Maintenance

 

Regular Charge Cycle

For the best battery performance, make sure go through a regular charge cycle at least once a month. This can be done by completely draining and then fully charging the battery. Fully charging the battery synchronises the battery with the phone fuel gauge, allowing the phone to “remember” what is full capacity.

Storage

Limit exposure to sunlight or other sources of heat. Excessive heat can damage the lifespan of your battery and affect its performance. Keep your iPhone out of the car, including the glove box, and out of direct sunlight on hot days.

6. Airplane Mode in Low Coverage Areas

If you are out of range or in a low coverage area, switch to airplane mode to maximise battery life. Airplane mode turns everything off except for Wi-Fi, so you will not be able to make calls. If you travel a lot, a solar charger can help you recharge your phone on the road.
