IM+ now has a free, ad-supported version

Instant messaging client IM+ – which earlier this month halved its asking price as well as adding Windows Live Messenger – now also has a free ad-supported version. The existing paid IM+, without adverts, is now called “IM+ Pro” in the Marketplace; those who already own the “Pro” version have received an update to version 1.2, which reportedly features improved scrolling.
