    I like iChat Clone the best, but the iPhone SMS and iPod Touch ones are great. I originally used iChadium, but loved the timestamps and colors of iChat Clone. However, for some reason, a horizontal scroll bar always appears on iChat Clone, and it only scrolls over to blank space. Any way to fix this?
