this used to be my go to app, but now its all built into my phone with the messaging app, and sadly for the most part everyone i know just uses facebook chat anymore.

As with all chat programs I've ever seen and even the one on Facebook, the user is ALWAYS either invisible or the thing is disabled!

Don't know a soul that actually uses a chat program any more than a blue moon occurs!
