I’m looking for a new messaging program since Yahoo Messenger has failed me.
I have to be honest, there really was not all that much wrong with Yahoo Messenger. It allowed me to text message other Yahoo users decently. But, I have had one major problem with the program. For the past couple of months, I have been trying to delete one particular contact. I say trying because every time I delete the contact, they return. I have made sure they are not on any other contact list connected to Yahoo. I even tried blocking said contact. And yet, almost daily, that contact is back, waiting for me to delete them once more.
It is getting to the point that I think I just need to delete Yahoo Messenger.
In deleting Yahoo Messenger, it leaves a bit of a messenger gap for me. I have used a few others (MSN, AIM, ICQ) but none of them have really stuck as something I should keep with. MSN and AIM did not stick because they were both associated with email accounts, which could add contacts to by address book that I may not want, at least not yet.
The one caveat is that whatever I try out needs to work on an iPod Touch. When I am in Wi-Fi range, this is my preferred device to interact. I find using messengers on that device keeps my computers clear of potential clutter.
I would prefer something that is relatively easy to use. One of the reasons why ICQ fell by the wayside was that the use of the numbers sometimes got a bit problematic, especially when my memory fails me and I don’t remember who is connected with what number. That and on an iPod, ICQ was really difficult to search for new users.
So, I am open to suggestions on a messaging app that is relatively easy to use. Does anyone know of something good?
