Hey guys, if any macupdate staff read this, it would seem like mac update's listing of aim is out of sync, The version listed here, is different from what is currently on aim.com. The listing here says 1.0.9, that's not what downloads, and the version on aim.com is:1.2.5.4, the version that downloads from the link listed here is: 2.2.439. The 2.2x version is the old style aim, from when it first came to os x.

Just wanted to let people know for the current version of aim for mac go to www.aim.com, until mu fixes their listing.

Thanks.

is there a way to globally turn off "on the record?" this is the kind of privacy screw-up that got Google and Facebook into a federal investigation.

Hello, i tried the application because a friend with a Windows PC, to do a video chat.
It work badly, and now, when i use iChat, every time i send a message to him, i get a message from AIM telling me that i had a new version of AIM, and my friend could record the conversation and read the faq!

I think AOL just shot themselves in the foot, in the middle of the dessert, and are now dying a slow death. This app is terrible.

It is just getting uglier and uglier and looks more like a pc port than a mac app. It's getting bloated with useless icons and options. I need to find a clean and easy option. I just can't take it anymore

Someone please. Why would I use this app? I use iChat, which supports video/audio and Facebook logging-in. Why would I bother with this?

I really like the Facebook login. I'd much rather use that than the website or Adium. It's nicely integrated, full of features and does everything that I need it to do. If I need video, I'll just jump on over to iChat, no problem.

AIM has really, really improved over the past year or so and I'm very happy to use it.

aruch1 had trouble on 08 Aug 2006
I recently got the G5 mac for school, and have had problems with AOL i/m 4.7 and mozilla firefox randomly "quitting". It's extremely annoying and I don't know what to do to fix it! I called applecare once and she told me to empty my cache files but that hasnt quite done the trick.

n0dl had trouble on 04 Dec 2005
Hello my sister just happily purchased an imac G5 (the imac with the isight camera built in and ibooth etc) sorry if i got the model number wrong... I am an MAC newbie after all... Anyway, While my sister runs OSX tiger, I run linux(ubuntu). Whenever my sister is running AIM4.7 it disconnects my sister out of random. An error message saying "AIM has suddenly quit". At first i thought it was becuase me and my sister were logged on AIM at the same time. So I logged off but that did not solve the problem. The only thing i have been running besides my browser was an irc client (irssi to be specific). Does anyone have any idea what the problem is or how to fix this?
A happy new non-windows using family.

With this version, my main screenname signs off after 3-5 seconds and an alert box appears saying that my screenname has been signed on at another location. Only one of my three screennames is affected by this. When I revert to 4.5.995 the problem goes away
