IMified provides users with an easy way to create and manage an interactive IM application. The user can build a bot with minimal effort. The user essentially creates a dynamic web page. The page can be written in any language and will respond to requests. The user publishes their application to one place and IMified directs the user’s Aim, Jabber, Yahoo and MSN screen names to the bot. The user can also access real time data any time, from anywhere with an internet connection. Imified lets the user query their user base and view status information. The user can also send instant messages to their users through the application. IMified supports any IM application the user wants to use.Show more screenshots »
IMified was founded by Adam Kalsey. The application provides a unique service that has been talked about all over the web. Many internet users have found Imified to be a flexible solution that makes it easy to integrate IM into web applications. The set up process takes minimal time and the user can work with any of their favorite instant messenger applications. Imified was acquired by Voxeo in May of 2009.
IMified offers two main features that appeal to many users. The first being how easy it is to use. Anyone can utilize IMified’s platform to interact with fans, customers and internet users through an application. The other appealing characteristic is the application’s versatility. The user can select any instant messenger program they like and use it with IMified. There are nearly no limitations so the user can create an instant messaging tool that works for their purposes.
IMified has a very professional style that makes it appealing to users from all industries. The green and blue color scheme adds visual flavor while the site remains clean and clutter free. The user can easily navigate to each feature and set up their preferred instant messenger quickly. Although the application’s design can’t really be called cutting edge, it gets the job done with enough style to look original.
A new user can try IMified by clicking the black “Sign Up” link in the upper, right hand corner of the homepage. The form on the next page asks the user for a first and last name, email address and password. An optional field is also available for a developer name. After submitting the form, the user is advised that an email has been sent to their address. This must be accessed before the user can log in.
Anyone can try IMified for free. The user only has to create an account to access IMified features. Users should note that the site mentions the addition of a subscription system later on. The service is available for free while IMified evaluates its pricing model. There is no further information provided regarding how much the application will cost once the subscription options have been officially released.
It is difficult to say who would benefit most from IMified at this point. Right now, users who need an instant messaging platform for web applications can give IMified a try. The site does not mention how much its services will cost or if additional features will be included. For smaller business and startups with a tight budget, this might be a little off putting until more pricing information is provided.
