    Are there any apps that work like Adium? I know that the background process restrictions make this o somewhat limited appeal but something that can connect to MSN would be of interest to me.

    Facebook chat too would be pretty handy!

    Beehive or Palringo.

    None of them do Facebook chat and I don't know any other IM apps that do. You can install Facebook though, its great and has Facebook Chat. It's made by people who made Facebook so it works really great.

    I use Nimbuzz. I tried IM+ Lite, Fring, and Palringo and I like Nimbuzz the best because it has a very clean, simple UI.

    I looked and you can log into Facebook, but I don't use Facebook so I've never tried.

    I use Beejive after trying one or two of the others. I depend too much on IM services for constant communication (almost as important as email) so I don't have time for quirks or bugs. Beejive just works and it was cheap enough.

    If you're going to use Facebook chat, keep in mind the [app]Facebook[/app] app is not gonna cut it. It is extremely unreliable, buggy, and slow. Just search "Facebook app" or something similar on these forums and you will find many threads on this.

    Palringo doesn't have facebook chat? I have on mine... (but I am a beta tester - it's had it for months!)

    I'm gonna give Nimbuzz a try since it's free - but I already got and adore Beejive :D

    I forgot Facebook had chat in the application!
