AIM for Windows is a chatting application that helps people who want to keep in touch with their friends over the internet. With a simple installation process, the tool provides quick access to its functions for people that already have an account. However, creating one will take no longer than two minutes and users can do it by clicking a link on the login screen of the app. After logging in, users can already start adding friends using a button located in the upper area of the screen.
People can write the whole address of the friend or they can choose the service that the other person uses, in order to make things easier. In relation to this feature, users can also sort their contact list using services as categories. However, this can be customized or no categories can be used at all. This way, users will only be sorted alphabetically. Social media is important nowadays and because of this, AIM provides a series of tools that allow users to integrate with their Facebook accounts in order to see the list of online friends. This way, people can communicate without opening the Facebook web page.
Group chats are easy to accomplish and this app also provides a function that allows users to create permanent groups which can be contacted with ease. Sharing files can be achieved using drag and drop and images can also be previewed before they are saved. Text messages can be sent using the app and users can benefit from free SMS features using this mini-option. Moreover, mobile phone numbers can be saved in a special list that can replicate a contact list of a phone. Multiple numbers can be assigned for a single person and the number can also be linked with a normal contact in the messenger list.
