Microsoft wants to bring in your social networks under its roof with its new Live Messenger iPhone app. Windows Live Messenger for iPhone and iPod Touch is finally official and available for free in the App Store. With this free iPhone app you can check your Hotmail, IM friends, view and comment on your friends’ photos and status updates from Windows Live, Facebook, and MySpace, and at a glance, see what your Messenger friends are sharing from Flickr, YouTube, and many other social and photo sharing sites.
Features of the app include:
– Send and receive Hotmail emails and get notifications when you have new messages.
– IM using Windows Live Messenger, Y! Messenger, and more.
– Update status for other networks including Facebook, Flickr and MySpace.
– Take and upload photos to share from your iPhone.
– MSN Smileys
Missing in the first revision are some basic features:
– There is no group chat support.
– You can’t block or delete contacts.
– You can’t sort contacts by status
– You can’t hide offline contacts
Up till now Windows Live Messenger users have been using either the web based version of MSN Mobile or 3rd party iPhone apps like Nimbuzz, IM+, Beejive, eBuddy, Meebo, Trillian and few others to chat on the iPhone over the Microsoft Live network.
Here is a video demo of the Windows Live Messenger for iPhone app on the iPhone

b2k, try deleting the app then redownloading it. It won’t cost you anything and it might fix any problems that may come up during installation sometimes. If that doesn’t do it, try restarting your iDevice.Posted on July 28th, 2011 at 10:56 am by Joseph Ho
