Chimp – App.Net client, Microblogging, Private Messaging, Patter, Broadcast and Ohai

Chimp is a client built on the social network framework (ADN). It runs on iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Supports (multiple) image, audio & video in posts uploaded to your ADN File Storage. The accompanying website is used to give you an overview of media created with Chimp. It also is the host for a web audio & video player for video you attach to posts. The player can be used by clients that have no built-in player support. No image, audio or video files are stored on, it’s all on your own personal ADN file space. Private messages and Patter also have image and audio support.

If you like the app, feel free to write a review in the AppStore. As we cannot reply to reviews, please contact @ludolphus on for any questions about the app.

We won’t nag you for AppStore reviews in the app, well except if you tap&hold your avatar in profile view.
