1.0 out of 5 stars IMO.IM spammed ALL my contacts' email addresses. June 16, 2013
By Ehud
Looking for the "best" Android IM client, I installed IMO on my tablet.
Once I verified my IMO.IM account it sent out email to ALL THE EMAIL
ADDRESSES in my contacts inviting them on my behalf to join the IMO

It's going to take me days of apologizing for "giving out" people's

It doesn't matter if it's the world's best gold-making app. It is
now uninstalled and I've emailed them to cancel my account and I'll
never use any of their software.

1.0 out of 5 stars DOESNT EVEN DESERVE 1 STAR November 18, 2012
By highway
Verified Purchase
this app is terrible. It made me give my email and picture just to go on. I gave a picture of my table instead, and found it on the internet the next day.

The developers would never answer my emails about the application's flaws, including the User unfriendly setup, and the fact that it would log me in and tell my friends that I was online at random times.

It also messed with my email and skype accounts. My friends would be video chatting with me, both on computers and the app was not logged in, when the app turns on from in my backpack and ends the video chat and kicks me off of skype because you cannot be logged on twice.

It also DELETED some of my preexisting accounts.

Please don't discard my review, I know this app is free but I had to warn you guys about the app.

Plenty of other users have been complaining of this same issue since May 5th. Skype account via IMO says you are offline. Amazon support has been of little help so far. The usual " us via phone..." TO THE DEVELOPERS - IT WASN'T BROKE, WHY DID YOU "FIX" IT? Arrrrrrggggghhhhh!!!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars TERRIBLE APP PLEASE READ THIS September 30, 2012
Verified Purchase
The instant I linked it to my Yahoo account I had strangers sending me endless strings of letters and symbols, and when I tried to delete them, they were worming their way into my Facebook Friends list and all my other accounts. DO NOT GET THIS APP IF YOU DON'T LIKE RANDOM STRANGERS SPAMMING / STALKING YOU!

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT GET FOR SKYPE May 19, 2012
Verified Purchase

Yes, this app does not do video calls, I know that. But that is not the problem I have with it.

I use this app for both, Facebook and Skype. The reason why I hate this app is because it constantly explodes your Skype wall with "" Any Skype posts that you put are overided within the next half hour. All up and down my Skype wall is that cursed message. I want to be able to post my own statuses on Skype, without a program spamming it's program name on my wall.

As for Facebook, it works fine. But you are still able to chat on Facebook, simply use the "Chat" app that can be found under that "Apps" section on the left sideboard (on mobile or on desktop). So it isn't needed for Facebook really.

Overall, if you don't mind the consistent spam on your Skype wall, feel free to get it. Personally, I do not like it. Just wanted to warn people before they got the spam. There is no option to turn it off, other than to log out. Hope this gets fixed!

1.0 out of 5 stars Won't connect to FB October 3, 2012
By Dxer
Verified Purchase
I have tried several times to "like" this app. It seems to work ok for Google Talk, but I can't connect to Facebook, which is my main reason for downloading it onto my Kindle Fire. It gives me a message telling me it is misconfigured for Facebook.
Interesting, there is a link to IMO on the Facebook App, but when I click that it goes to the Silk browser and then crashes.
Uninstalled, perhaps will try again later if they ever fix it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Fire, aim, Yahoo!, facebook December 11, 2011
By alksduo
Verified Purchase
It works great on my Kindle Fire, having aim, Yahoo!, and facebook messaging simultaneously. It's very easy to use; I can simply swipe my finger to the side and it'll go to another active conversation. It can even show you your older conversations. Adding accounts was quick and simple. Very content with the programming. Was well-adjusted to touch screens with simple layout and usage. Definitely get this.

I wish video chatting could be totally free and not dependent on CP. The touchscreen controls weren't easy to navigate either.
