Meebo is a chat client for the iPhone that brings together the most popular chat services, from MSN and ICQ, to social site chat like MySpace and Facebook.

Like eBuddy, you'll need to sign up for a Meebo account before you get started adding your other messaging accounts. Meebo has an A-Z of almost every instant messaging service you'll have heard of, so if you have tons of accounts, the chances are you'll find them here!

Once you have added the services you want, using Meebo is really easy. Contacts are listed alphabetically, but also grouped into buddies, friends and other contacts (this depends on the services you use). With lots of accounts, it can be a bit overwhelming, but otherwise it's easy to use and looks good

Meebo may be easy to use, but it is a little basic. For example, with Windows Live contacts, Meebo doesn't show status, so you can see whether people are online, but not if they are busy. Other than that, you can send images or take pictures with the iPhone and there's a good range of emoticons provided.

Despite being a bit on the basic side, the usability and support for probably any messenger service you will want makes Meebo a great choice for dedicated instant message fans
