    Which version of OSX? It's only available on Mountain Lion.

    In Mountain Lion itís in the Applications folder... and itís actually called "Messages" (.app) in OS X, not "iMessages" (.app). Donít really understand why the different names, but maybe that will help.

    Just a heads up Lynn. iMessage isn't without its flaws: doesn't always sync messages between you iPhone & iPad and sometimes your messages will appear out of order on your Mac. Drives me nuts but I continue to use it.

    And welcome to the iMore community.
    Good Luck
