I'm looking for a FREE chat client that supports Windows Live network (Messenger) and is designed for iPad.

The iPad Windows Live Messenger application is designed for iPhone, so when you install it on iPad, you get a iPhone screen application.

Can someone help me?

Yahoo! Messenger says it supports Windows Live/MSN Messenger accounts, and is a Universal (iPhone & iPad) app.

Not free, but only $0.99 is Live Messenger Pro.

Tried Yahoo but did not accepted messenger login. – RHaguiuda Mar 24 '12 at 23:37

Increase the iPhone app from 1x magnification to 2x. I do it for a bunch of apps that don't have native iPad apps. :)

Welcome to Ask Different! Thanks for answering a question. However, the OP specifically noted that he was looking for an iPad app. He mentioned that he didn't want to use the iPhone app. – daviesgeek Mar 23 '12 at 21:31

IMO is free and has been working great for me.

Has great features and supports several protocols.
