IM Smarterô is a new kind of instant messaging enhancement. IM Smarter empowers all of the major messaging services with a rapidly expanding set of cool, new features. It’s not a “bot”. It’s not a plugin for AIM. It’s not a program that you run instead of your existing IM client. Using IM Smarter can be understood as hiring a secretary for your IM; IM Smarter, like a secretary, sits between you and the rest of the world and helps you manage your messages. Using IM Smarter is pretty cool; imagine having one place you can search and visualize your instant message chats with anyone you’ve chatted with using any of the major IM networks. Imagine being able to update your blog as easily as sending an IM, and getting an IM whenever any of your buddies update their blogs. IM Smarter keeps you in the loop with things that you told it to remember and things you told it to keep an eye out for. Nearly all modern instant messaging clients have the ability to “proxy”, or to connect to the official servers by way of another server. This is usually only used in very fancy corporate environments; most home users don’t use a proxy. To use IM Smarter, all you have to do is to tell your IM client to use our servers as your “proxy” and you’re all set! With our autoconfiguration available for AIM, Yahoo, and MSN, you can be ready to go in seconds! Robin Good has an excellent review of IM Smarter and his review is available by clicking here.
