It's been less than one month since the initial launch of Yahoo! Messenger for the iPhone, and the Yahoo! Messenger blog reports that an updated version is already available in the iTunes App Store. Yahoo! Messenger 1.1 promises an improved reliability and sign-in experience — a big problem for many early adopters.
The Yahoo! Messenger app remains free, works with both the iPhone and iPod Touch, and now supports the landscape keyboard — a nice touch if you log a lot of hours on IM.
Yahoo also added a “Report a Problem” feature that gives you a direct channel back to Yahoo for problems or even suggestions.
Yahoo product manager Sarah Bacon also thanks everyone for sharing their feedback on the beta version 1.0.
Here's some additional feedback: Change the “available” indicator in the contacts list from yellow to green (like every other online indicator on the PLANET!). Please.
