Could you maybe rephrase your question so that it isn´t subjective? (Have a look at the FAQ for questions not to ask here: apple.stackexchange.com/faq#dontask ) –  Asmus Apr 11 '11 at 20:13

This sounds like a prime candidate for Community Wiki. –  wjl Apr 12 '11 at 9:38

One of the best chat applications around has to be BeeJiveIM. You can purchase a version that does most IM services that is ad free and supports push. If all you are looking for is GTalk or FaceBook they have individual apps for those services that are free.

I can't say it's the best, but Meebo works pretty well for me, and covers all the services I've ever used. (Cept Usenet ;), it's also got fairly un-annoying interface, and good control over alerts. It also merges all your buddies into one list.

  • List item
  • AIM
  • Windows Live
  • Yahoo IM
  • Google Talk
  • Myspace IM
  • ICQ
  • Jabber
  • Facebook
  • Like 60 or 80 more that I'm not going to list.

Does Meebo have ads or want to integrate with some nonsense service they provide (and if so, can it be ignored or turned off)? I'm looking for an AIM/gtalk client for iOS (like the OP), but Digsby (which many of my acquaintances use) is too annoying. I'm willing to pay for no ads, too. –  CajunLuke Apr 11 '11 at 20:58
    
Yeah they have iAds, which is new, I hadn't updated in a while I guess :(.. They seem to come and go though, or only be visible at first maybe. Sometimes they are there other times not. –  Nilloc Apr 19 '11 at 5:36

I've heard good things about IM+, but never used it. With ADHD, if I've unglued myself from a computer, I should congratulate myself by not IMing people even more. :)
