If you are experiencing issues trying to connect Facebook to AIM, you aren’t alone. Looks like our friends at Facebook are having some issues right now effecting third party products like AIM. We’re pretty confident they will get things back on track soon. This shouldn’t be an issue if you added Facebook in the past. Thanks for your patience.
We just released an update that should fix this issue. Check the store for an update, if you continue to see it once you upgrade, please let us know.
Thanks PCMag.com, we think AIM for iPad is pretty great too! Number 31 on their top 100 must have iPad apps.
“AIM is easily one of the best instant-messenger apps on the iPad. You can set up multiple usernames (and switch among them at any time), send IMs to any phone that supports text messaging, receive social network updates, and chat with Facebook and Google Talk users.”

AIM for iPhone users, if you’ve upgraded your iOS, you may have noticed you continue to get new IM notifications even after you’ve exited AIM. A bug in the new iOS creates two sessions of AIM running simultaneously. We’re working on a fix on our end, but in the meantime, you can work around this problem by doing the following:
Open a new chat and send the number 1 to username aolsystemmsg. This will get you back to one session of AIM running.
Thanks for your patience. We’ll post here when the new version is ready.
AIM for Android users, we have a new version available in the Google Play store.
Custom groups are back! If you set up buddy groups in previous versions of AIM, your contacts will now be sorted using them.
More flexible chat storage options. Keep chats private between you and some of your contacts or choose to keep them ALL off the record.
Look for these two settings here:
Lots of bug fixes.
Some performance enhancements too.
Lifestream is back! We’ve brought over your Facebook and Twitter accounts, Instagram is newly available and YouTube will be coming soon.
To add these services, just click the icons on the left side bar of your contact list. Click the updates icon (under the chat bubble) to see your feed. Cross post your status to Facebook and Twitter too. You can edit, add, and remove your services from preferences anytime.
Look for Lifestream to make its way back into AIM for iPhone and Android later this Fall.
Missing the classic IM sent sound? No problem, open your AIM preferences (now available from the dot dot dot button on the side bar), choose the sound tab, open the options by selecting edit. Then choose “Play the classic AIM sound”. If you prefer to set your own custom sound, select the “Choose file” button and browse to a sound on your machine.
Want to store a copy of your chats on your computer? No problem. AIM for Window now offers this feature. For your privacy, you’ll need to opt into it. Open preferences, and select the box next to Choose how your messages are saved, “Store and save a copy of my chats on my computer”.
We are working on fixing an issue for users trying to connect Twitter to AIM. Should be working again by the end of the day. Thx for your patience!
Don’t wait until it’s too late, make sure you have your latest email and an account security question tied to your AIM account. This will ensure if your account gets compromised or you lose access to your email you can still log into AIM. It’s pretty simple, and should only take you a min!
Go to http://myaccount.aol.com/. Once you are logged in, you can update your account by clicking on manage my account details, update my contact information. You can add/change your security question by clicking on manage username, update/change my account security question.
Hey iPhone users, a new AIM update is ready for you in the app store. It fixes missing and dropped messages. Thanks for the reports.
Earlier this year we launched the new AIM with a redesigned way to organize your contacts. We heard from a lot of you who missed your custom groups. We listened, so now your groups are right where you left them.
Don’t worry, if you’ve come to love your list without custom groups, you can easily hide them. Simply go to your menu, choose “Contacts” then deselect “Show custom groups”. We promise we’ll get them back in our mobile apps soon.
We’ve heard size matters. So, we’ve updated AIM Desktop to let you choose the width of your contact list.
Simply drag the right edge, between your list and chat history, to the left to make it smaller. Happy chatting!
