Yahoo has finally unveiled their Yahoo Messenger app for the iPad, there has been an iPhone app for sometime so its no surprise that an iPad version would come along eventually.

Like other apps that have made the leap to the mid-screen this one has been optimized for the iPad. This basically means a new layout and interface that makes use of the additional space offered on the iPad.

Like the iPhone app users can take advantage of free video and voice calls to other Yahoo Messenger users, this is the fundamental strength of IM services so again comes as no shock but is a welcome service all the same. Unlike other IM clients it seems Yahoo isn’t afraid to share, they allow MSN Messenger users to chat over the app too.

The app includes multitasking, so you can switch between apps and notifications, conversations and new messages keep on flowing even if you leave it running in the background.
