Mac OS X Version of AIM Released by AOL

Now that Apple has updated the Mac OS X 10.5.6, it was only fitting that AOL addressed this by putting out AIM for MAC 1.0 (not to be confused with AIM 4.7 for Macintosh that was last updated back in 2004 and left to collect dust since then).

“The AOL Mac team is pleased to announce the release of AIM for Mac 1.0. As with AOL Desktop for Mac 1.5, AIM for Mac was built from the ground up by Mac users for Mac users. Communicate whenever you want, wherever you are, in whatever way that suits you best - on your Mac or on the go with your iPhone™. AIM for Mac 1.0 is a great complement to our AIM for iPhone. Send and receive messages over WiFi, EDGE, or 3G networks while connecting to anyone on the AIM network worldwide, whether they're on AOL®, AIM®, ICQ®, .Mac or MobileMe,” says AOL.


Let’s not linger on and see exactly what features AIM for Mac 1.0 has to offer to those of us that can afford to chat online since we are not busy fixing the Mac OS X 10.5.6 update problems:
- True AIM Experience, meaning that you can customize things like Buddy sounds and animated icons, and change the wallpaper.
- Fast, reliable File Transfers, meaning that you can transfer files (photos, music, portable software, and so on). This is made possible because AIM for Mac 1.0 is an authentic instant messaging client, not just AIM-compatible.
- Tabbed IMs for Tiger Users, meaning that AIM for Mac 1.0 will work on Mac OS x 10.4, not just on Mac OS X 10.5, codename Leopard.
- Accessible, meaning that it is VoiceOver compatible.

If you would like to get the Mac OS X specific AIM 1.0, a download location is available here.
