The Windows Live Messenger for iPhone app was released to the general public late last month. To be more precise, it was made available for download in the US, UK, Canada, and France – initially. Then it was released to the iTunes stores of Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, India, Ireland, Jamaica, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, Sweden, and Switzerland.

Redmond-based software giant Microsoft was quite happy to announce that the release was a big success. How big of a success was it? I am glad you asked – according to Microsoft, the app was downloaded more than 1 million times in the first 5 days since it was released.

“In just 5 days, over one million people downloaded the Windows Live Messenger app for iPhone. This early momentum is fantastic, and we really appreciate the feedback we’ve been getting. While Messenger for iPhone is relatively new, for many connecting with Messenger friends on your mobile phone is not new. In addition to the more than one million iPhone Messenger users, there are over 24 million people who connect with Messenger friends from other mobile phones through a client application, their phone’s browser, or SMS,” Group Product manager for Windows Live Messenger, Michael Chang commented.

In case you are not familiar with the Windows Live Messenger for iPhone app, here’s what you can do with it:
- Chat with all your friends; you can send text, emoticons, nudges, URLs and photos with your IM messages.
- Share photos with your friends
- Include photos, links, and other rich content in your status messages
- Comment on your friends’ photos and status updates from Windows Live, Facebook, and MySpace
- See what your friends are sharing Flickr, YouTube, and many other social and photo sharing sites
- Edit photos by applying one of the app’s built-in effects
- Hotmail access from within the app
- Push notifications, so you can always stay connected even though the Windows Live Messenger for iPhone app is not up and running.
