Display weather, stocks, more in iChat AV

Status Symbol 1.0 is a standalone application that can manage your iChat AV status… [MacMinute]

I’ve had a chance to play with this bit (at the bottom of the page) and I have to say it’s pretty cool. You can easily create custom as well as dynamic updates to your IM status.

Another update… my friend on AIM cannot see any messages other than that I look available. This may only be a iChat feature/function.

  1. You said: “Another update… my friend on AIM cannot see any messages other than that I look available. This may only be a iChat feature/function.”

    That is true–the status is ONLY broadcast from one iChat user to another iChat user. AOL doesn’t follow the same protocol as iChat does, therefore, status will only show if you are using iChat. Not our rule and not a limitation of “Status Symbol,” but a limitation on AOL’s server.

    Thanks for the press!
