It enables you to have all IMs all in one place. This tab supports the major IM networks: Yahoo, MSN, Facebook Chat and Gtalk. A single sign-in enables you to sign in to all your IM accounts concurrently, showing everything on a single page. The convenience of everything on hand reduces the hassle in switching from IM to IM, so you can chat or message friends easily through a simple interface. If a friend isn’t on SQUISH, you can easily send invitations through various channels to get them to join you on SQUISH. (Scroll below for more info on Chats Tab.)
This is where you can play social games, participate in discussions, vote in polls, chat in chat rooms and do much more. It’s the doorway to mobile entertainment and fun. Plus, this tab keeps the user busy, socially interacting with friends on SQUISH. (Scroll below for more info on Services Tab.)

I’ve installed this app. What’s next?
There are several things that we recommend for you to get the best out of SQUISH:
- Add Facebook or Twitter to unite your social life in one place.
- Go to “Chat”, click “Menu” and “Manage Accounts.” Add your MSN, GTalk, Yahoo! Messenger or Facebook chat.
- Go to “Services” to try the games. Or, click “Circle” to check the biggest talk in town or receive RSS for the latest news. Or, visit the chatrooms and chat with friends or users in SQUISH.
- Add friends recommended by SQUISH or invite a friend to join in the fun with you!
- Once you’ve added your friends, go to your “Me” tab to upload your profile picture so your friends will be able to recognize you easily when receiving your invites or visiting your profile. Click “Edit My Profile” to take a photo or choose an existing photo from your phone’s album to set it as your profile picture. Enter your name and any other info that you may want to share.
Have you added your Facebook or Twitter account? If not, add it now so that you can keep yourself up to date with the activities on your Facebook and Twitter. Go to “Updates” and click “Menu”. Click “Facebook” or “Twitter” and click “Add”. Enter your login email/username and password. Make sure that the “Publish my status” field is checked so even your own updates are reflected in the “Updates” tab. Once all is done, SQUISH will update you on the posting and events from it.
Can I use SQUISH and at the same time make and receive phone calls?
Yes. When you have an incoming call, you can answer it and the application will be hidden. When you finished your call, you’ll be directed to SQUISH.
I can’t log in. I keep seeing “Unable to connect to the server. Please check your network connection.” What seems to be the problem?
Please make sure that your phone has mobile network signal and data service coverage. To test it, start your phone internet browser and check whether you’re able to connect to the internet. If you can’t, you can either move to a place with network coverage or you can contact the operator support for assistance.
What's a PIN?
A PIN is a unique number issued to you as your private ID. You can tell your SQUISH friends to add you by your PIN if you don’t want them to know your phone number.
I want another account. How do I get this?
Each mobile number will have only one account. In order to get multiple accounts, you’ll need to have multiple SIM cards and phones.
