And thus, [#ProjectAmy](https://alpha.app.net/projectamy) was born. App.net messaging integrated natively into Messages for the Mac.
-Here's how to set it up. If you're running Mountain Lion, [download the Amy installer](https://files.app.net/1/9527/ayQHV7-J5m6iTa5Cb5PvZb0-L7IhgtWi8V2Rau-FcFsIIP5Hx5tarKLVOAkBtIeueq3L23Suod9r2W9hxyTC061y_8ptsBvLKHuVF_G1KtvIldxdCSAbDvryFlbBtXBIV5GDi1nOLSn863vE02lztscT9FnjR6bsvwaw_vJe97LI) and run it. Once it has finished installing, open Messages' Preferences and add an account. A new option for App.net will appear: pick it and enter your username and password for App.net. Add the account and you're done.

The people you follow will be shown in your buddy list. Double clicking one will open a new chat window and start a new private messaging session like you would see on [Omega](https://omega.app.net/). Sending and receiving messages happen very fast, usually within a second. You can drag files into the chat window, and they will upload to your account's App.net file storage and be sent as part of a message. Similarly, if you attach a file elsewhere, it will let you download it directly from Messages - and if that file is an image, including animated GIFs, those images will appear inline like they would with AIM or iMessage. If you subscribe to group chats or [Patter chat rooms](http://patter-app.net/), those will appear as well. It's very nicely integrated.
Project Amy tops what I did with Apparchy. It deeply integrates App.net into a major app. It doesn't rely on a proxy server (or in fact communicate with any API except for App.net), so there's no concerns about privacy and far less issues with stability. It uses 100% public, documented APIs that are exposed, so updates will not break the plugin (in theory). It's super simple to set up; just run the installer and add your account information. And it is an integration in an app used by millions of people, with a wide intersection of the people who use App.net. It fixes all of the problems, makes Messages more useful, and makes App.net more useful.
That said, this initial release is a beta. There are bugs and I'll be working on fixing them over time. But in the last few weeks as I've developed it, it's vastly changed how I use PMs on App.net. I use it a lot more, and respond to people a lot more frequently and much more quickly. I hope every Mac-using App.net user downloads it and installs it.
