AOL polishes up mobile AIM

AOL has spiffed up AIM AIM Express, a Flash based web version that means users can have AIM conversations over the web without having to download any software.

AIM Express sports tabbed IM conversations and text message mode – users can SMS anyone on their buddy list – and the apps works with all the major browsers, including IE, Firefox and Safari (what no Opera?)

AIM has had a spit and polish for Windows Mobile phones, and is now available for version 5 and 6 of the OS. While it’s not earthshattering, it’s good to see AOL looking after the service and tarting it up once in a while – and a Flash version makes a lot of sense for anyone who fancies an IM convo on their work phone without all the hassle of convincing the IT department to let them put software on the device.
