As the Web continues to develop and change, some things seemed to have stood still for the last decade. I still remember when I opened my first email account, or when I first joined AIM (or was it ICQ?).

Now, I have had the chance to try out all of these apps on different platforms, and they all pretty much rock, but like I said, I want to talk about the company as a whole and not just their products.

TweetAfter hitting the 10,000 apps and 300,000,000 downloads mark (yes, there were 300 million downloads so far), you would think there would be at least one app in the app store that offers an instant messaging experience somewhat similar to the desktop one. Take Digsby, for example. Besides its lack of Skype support, it is [...]
