I had the opportunity to use the Mundu IM service on my iPhone 3G and found that it worked quite well. I was able to log in to my instant-messaging services without a problem, and upon doing so, I found that chatting with others through the software was quick and just as simple as chatting with them on my desktop.
where Mundu IM really shines is in its extras. The service allows you to share pictures taken from your phone with friends, transfer files, and cross-conference with contacts across IM services, making it much simpler to talk with people, regardless of their preferred IM software.
Mundu’s design is second to none. It features stylish icons that make it easy to choose your IM service, and the interface during chat was simple, which made the experience far more usable. Read more>>

I’ve had my Treo 650 for a couple of months now and I’ve tried a lot of stuff with it but this is the absolute coolest app yet.
I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to find text messaging on a mobile a little boring. I’m always trying to inject a little more variety into my communication so I thought I’d give Mundu Montage a go.
The app is designed to enhance messaging between mobile devices, and allows you to create rich visually content to share with your buddies. You’ll need to register online first to make full use of the service, but this is free so it’s OK by me.
The program itself basically consists of a blank canvas with several tools for adding stuff to this board to create ‘montages’. You can either choose to draw directly onto the canvas, or snap an area of the screen and add it to the overall design.
The drawing tools are pretty limited though, and you can only really doodle in freehand as there are no shape or line-drawing tools. There are a few brush colours to choose from though, and you can change the width of the stroke. Still, it’s ideal if you’re just annotating images I guess.
The snapshot facility works well, and with the inclusion of a ‘OneTap’ feature, you can share images with your contacts in a snap. Importing your contacts from your Yahoo!, GMail, AOL or MSN accounts is a breeze too.
If you’re looking for a way of sprucing up your messages, Mundu Montage provides a pretty simple means of doing so.
It’s amazing!!! You can add any station you want as long as it is transmitting in mp3 format! I have add four russian stations and all of them work as a charm!!!
So far we’ve covered a number of Web-based IM clients built for the iPhone. There’s the lightweight Heysan, TinyBuddy (which uses the iUi guidelines to mimic the iPhone’s sliding style interface and adds an extra layer of security by requiring users to login via AOL’s own Web-based authentication), and JiveTalk, which mimics the Mac OS X iChat interface to some extent.
Enter Mundu IM iPhone Edition from Geodesic (an Indian company that’s already created some great Web apps including Mundu Radio and IM clients for other mobile platforms). We’ve tested the new client briefly, and found that it combines most of what’s good in the extant IM offerings while leaving out the bad. Here’s some of what we like about it:
- Tabbed chats: When you’re in on conversation, other conversations appears as scrollable tabs at the top of the screen. The best implementation of multi-user chatting we’ve seen yet.
- Smooth, fast operation: This is the best behaving IM client for the iPhone we’ve tested. The interface is responsive, responses are quick to load, and tapping a contact name almost immediately brings up a new chat. We also found the client to be usable over AT&T’s EDGE network, where some other competitors certainly aren’t.
- Polished interface: Chats appear in conversation bubbles, akin to iChat. Away and status messages are neatly displayed, unlike some other clients that do a poor job rendering the text. There is also clear indication in a small icon next to each buddy regarding away status. Further, Mundu organizes buddies into AIM bots, normal buddies, mobile devices, etc.
- Multi-protocol support: Though its not unique in this regard, Mundu can hold chats on the big four IM services: MSN, Yahoo, AIM and Gtalk.
Mundu’s got a slick, multiclient IM for iPhone
Amid the growing group of instant-messaging solutions for the IM-less iPhone, Mundu (a Webware 100 winner) has just released a new contender that handles four of the most popular chatting protocols with a fantastic interface. If you’re an iPhone user, just navigate your Safari browser to http://iphone.mundu.com, which takes you to a log-in screen with access to your AIM, Yahoo, MSN, .Mac, and Google Talk accounts. You can log into all of them simultaneously, although there’s no master password system like you get with Meebo.
Each client gets its own buddy list, and any additional conversations get their own tabs. To start a conversation, just tap a user name of one of your friends who is logged in. There’s a simple form that pulls up the iPhone’s keyboard when clicked. Similar to the iPhone’s built-in SMS app and iChat, conversations show up as color-coded speech bubbles that can be scrolled back and forth with your finger. The refresh rate is also instantaneous, so you don’t have to keep reloading the page to see new comments from your friends.
The whole app has a very organic feel that’s just right. It’s one of the few IM apps I’ve used on the iPhone where it doesn’t feel like you’re fighting an interface to make it feel like a desktop app. I also have to give Mundu credit for creating a neat bubbly effect on the chat tab when you’ve got an unread message. Sometimes it’s just the little things that make Web apps more fun to use. In this case, the function is just as good as the form.
