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.
