SHAPE Services, the developer of the popular IM+ cross-platform application, has just released a major update that brings lots of new features and improvements.Windows Phone users complaining that they can’t install Skype due to the low hardware configuration of their smartphones will be happy to know that they can now use IM+ to chat with their friends.
According to developers, IM+ supports low memory phones powered by Windows Phone platform, which is why they should install or update to the latest version if they wish to use Skype.
In addition, IM+ users will now be able to receive files in Skype, Yahoo!, and Jabber. Although the ability to send files was previously available in IM+ for all services supported by the application, the possibility to receive files is completely new and very useful.
Even services that do not support this capability by default, such as Skype, are now supported by the IM+ app, so user will now be able to transfer files.
Moreover, Windows Phone users who will install the latest version of IM+ will be able to send video and audio messages, as well as log in to Skype with Windows Live ID.
For VK.com users, SHAPE Services has announced that it has improved both IM+ Pro and IM+ Free applications in order to support this service’s API.
Even though VK announced a while ago that it would stop XMPP support, IM+ users should not worry about not being able to take advantage of this service anymore.
Last but not least, developers have also added some visual improvements and performance enhancements in order for the IM+ application to connect much faster. New emoticons have been included in the update as well.
Download IM+ 2.9.10 for Windows Phone platform via Softpedia. Keep in mind that the application is compatible with all devices running Windows Phone 7.5 and higher.
