In an office, in a conference, in your big home, you can send messages to your colleagues, friends or family quickly through WiChat wirelessly without the need for a pre-configured server.

Bonjour is a technology that Apple built to implement zero configuration service discovery protocol. It's bundled with Mac OS X and iPhone/iPod Touch. WiChat takes advantage of Bonjour service to achieve serverless communication without a pre-configured server.

5/5 stars

Chat with Macs with no additional installation!

:
**If you already bought the app. please email the developer. I did and the developer will take care of the rest.**
WiChat is an awesome app. WiChat can chat with Bonjour buddies.
But how?
Here's a quick setup guide for it.
In iChat, go to Preferences. Click on the "Accounts" tab. You will see Bonjour, click on it. At last, check "Enable Bonjour Instant Messaging". BOOM! You're good to go! (if you want to get on Bonjour IM when ur Mac starts, check "Log in automatically when iChat opens")
You can not only chat, but sending files and downloading is doable! Hope the developer will add iTunes file sharing feature soon.
It's a great app overall!

0/5 stars

Only for NEW iPhones!

:
The author neglects to inform the purchaser that this application will not work on an iPhone 3G (like mine). $2.99 wasted on an application that I can't use (but would really like to have).

3/5 stars

Good but needs...

:
...to be able to stay "online" and be able to receive incoming chats when not in the app. It has an option to "stay connected" but this does not allow other users to IM you as it reports you as offline. Maybe this is not possible with Apples rules but if it is it would make this app 5 stars for me.
