Verbs: hands on with the stylish new iPhone chat client
Although Verbs is quite possibly the best-looking chat client available on the iPhone, it's not without some serious drawbacks. The biggest problem is that it only supports Google Talk right now -- AIM support is on the way -- so it's currently outclassed by multi-protocol competitors. The other problem is that the CloudApp feature, while cool in theory, is unreliable in practice. I'm not sure whether it's due to an issue with Verbs or an issue with CloudApp, but files will often upload to the cloud without being sent to your chat buddy. Including other cloud sharing options -- Dropbox, anybody? -- would give Verbs a huge boost.
Now that we've been over the pros and cons of Verbs, scope out the gallery below for a closer look at that beautiful user interface.
