Creators Of Mobile Chat For the iPhone Twenty08 Hires AplloIM Developer

If you bought the iPhone when it first came out, you had two choices for Instant Messaging. Twenty08's MobileChat and Alex Schaefer's ApolloIM. Twenty08 has now hired Alex Schaefer to work exclusively on MobileChat
twenty08 would like to formally welcome aboard…Alex Schaefer. Many of you may know him as the founder of the world’s first Native iPhone IM Application, ApolloIM. ApolloIM was an amazing application and during it’s run, MobileChat and Apollo stood head to head and constantly battled to create the better app. (Friendly war of course!) The best part about it was that no one won! Only our respective users benefited from the friendly competition, and you can’t ask for anything better than that as far as I’m concerned. Now with Alex working on our side, we believe that MobileChat will be able to rise up and regain its glory as the number one iPhone application that we all know it can be. He is a very talented developer (plus a great guy) who has already brought some great ideas to the table and we’re all very excited to see our new-found relationship grow.
