Today we have great news for any of you who use Yahoo! Messenger and own an iPad, a new Yahoo! Messenger app is available for free at the App Store which has been optimized to suit Apple’s iPad and iPad 2.
You can find out fully detailed information regarding this map via iTunes, the app is 21MB in size so shouldn’t take too long to install, however you must be running iOS 4.0 or later.
According to the app’s official description when you compare this app version (2.1) to previous releases you will notice an iPad-optimized layout, improved spam management and lots of bug fixes, one of which caused unexpected sign-out issues. If you run Yahoo! Messenger 2.1 on your iPad 2 you will be able to make voice and video calls to compliant devices.
Other functionality is the same as before, you will still be able to easily share photos and videos, send free SMS messages and make low-cost international calls. If you have never used any versions of the app before you will be glad to hear that Yahoo! Messenger runs in the background and you receive notifications when an instant message arrives.
If you own an iPad or iPad 2 give the app a try and come back to tell us whether it is up to much, share your thoughts in the comments section below. What other changes and improvements would you like to see?
