As you know, Doug is a huge fan of Google which made an iPhone optimized version of Google Talk very exciting. To use the iPhone optimized version of Google Talk, you will need to go to www.Google.com/talk on your iPhone. If you have signed in to any Google service in Safari before, you will be automatically signed in.

This is the mobile messaging application we’ve all been waiting for. AgileMessenger is a multi service chat application that includes ICQ, MSN, AOL, Yahoo!, Jabber and GoogleTalk. This application is smooth, works over edge or wifi, has tons of features, runs in the background more. Yes, running in the background is going to effect your battery but this can be changed in the Preferences. The interface is great and the tab feature works great.
My only complaint is the sound effects. The current sound is a little annoying and once a sound is made my audio becomes all muffled.

Watch “AgileMessenger” on your iPhone or iPod Touch.
