Our Experiences using Yam
First time we tried to use Yam chat client, we notice that yam was very simple to be operated. No need installation and other kind of registering product. All we need to do just click and run yam.exe file in the Yam folder. Even though the skin and user interface of Yam chat client not quite good enough, Yam we notice that has easy friendly to use for new user or beginner.
Uniqueness and useful features: Just like other unofficial chat client of YM, Yam also has a join room option, nickname tattoo, spam protection, boot protection, auto answer, and also has change skin option. Simple operating of Yam also the unique thing in Yam. Just download Yam zip and then extract it. After that just run yam.exe and login in yahoo messenger.
Lack from Yam: Unfortunately, Yam Chat Client did not have a web cam viewer. Either in our opinions, Yam does not has a good interface looking. The skin’s not quiet good enough and sometime boot attack still can makes it disconnect. Sometime for bad connection, a log-in time takes longer than usual.
