    Hey Macrumors,

    I was wondering if it was just me or does having the beejive application lower your battery life?

    After purchasing beejive i've noticed that my battery life went down.

    What is your experience with it?

    Don't know why it should, I mean it is via pushmail... unless you're sending IM a lot more due to being able to run IM in the background.

    Are you running the app always without hitting the home button?

    Mine doesn't drain the battery that fast, use the push to email feature.

    Unless you never exit the app (i.e. just lock the screen) or you're using it with Backgrounder, there's no reason for it to drain your battery. It stops running when you hit the home button, so it can't take up battery.

    I can get 2+ days out of my iPhone battery when it is "standard" firmware, typical usage. When I jailbroke and ran Beejive with Backgrounder (no other jailbreak apps at all) my battery would last less than a day, same usage.

    It's probably something else.
    No problems for me with Beejive.

    Try restarting the phone.
