iPhone’s exciting new MeeBo app.

MeeBo is one of the newer applications for iPhones that makes juggling emails between multiple accounts, and keeping order of, and storing instant messaging sessions.  When  twisting the Iphone sideways, in landscape form, it can be used as a touch screen typewriter, giving the user a bigger keyboard to use for instant messaging and chatting with friends, loved ones and coworkers than that is provided by most smart phones.  Although MeeBo is available for both Android 2.0 and Apple phones, the iPhone has seen a flourish of downloads.

MeeBo can do a lot more than just turn your iPhone into a mobile chatting device.  Instead of passing instant text messages back and forth, you can now use your chatting application that you have on your home computer or laptop, and have all associated contacts and information about each contact instantly transferred to your iPhone.  You get instant knowledge of who you are talking to, where they belong in your social and business ladders, and any information that needs sharing or gleaming, like common friends and hobbies.

But, seriously, having a big touch screen keypad for guys (and gals) with honking huge fingers is a blessing for many large people and football players.  Imagine the center for the Pittsburgh Steelers trying to type on one of those tiny keypads provided by the majority of smart phones, even when they fold out.  It would take him an hour to write a short tweet.

When you enable “Push Notifications” on the Meebo app, while installed and running on your iPhone, your instant messages will show up exactly like a text message, with the same name and ring tone associated with your contact lists.  This means that all of your incoming instant messages will be shown as they arrive to your iPhone, giving you the choice to start instant messaging, or to reply to the message later on, when you are less occupied, or not driving.

MeeBo provides synching so that you can uninterruptedly move from your laptop to your iPhone, or visa-versa, while having an instant messaging chat with someone.  You can also synch all IM messaging, smart notifications of incoming emails, chats and text messages as well as location control, with a GPS app loaded and running.

So, give MeeBo a try, and see if it just doesn’t alter how you approach text messaging, as well as using that big keyboard, which is about as big as the touch screen, so with larger screens, this portion of the app becomes more and more attractive.

After all, when an app is free, it is only a small amount of time that you are risking to see whether or not it is going to be one of your favourite apps.
