    I have this application on my blackberry too, these devs are amazing.

    They just understand ^.^

    (with that said it is a tad expensive, but it's more than worth it)

    Nice new features.... The Auto-Away is nice and something I wanted, but that was before Backgrounder. I guess its not going to help since even when I exit, its still running, right?

    I'll be interested to try out the shake to change screens.. i was hoping for a swipe (like Palringo) but that could be cool too.

    I don't like the new 'shake to switch chats' feature. Mainly because you can only cycle through your chats one way. I understand that they were trying to use all the iPhone's capabilities, but this one just doesn't work. I'm glad it's just a setting that you can turn off.

    Honestly I really liked the chat switching they already had. If I have 5 chats open I can find the one I want quickly and easily and go to it. On Palringo you had to keep sliding back and worth which was fine when you had a couple of chats but was cumbersome with more.

    It's great they are giving options though, I think this app is just gonna get better and better.

    Yeah, I'm glad they actually care and update it frequently. Especially with the steep price.

    Another reason why this App is worth the price and others *cough* mobile chat *cough* wouldn't be worth it even if free.

    The devs of this app do seem to be class acts.

    I have a blackberry to and just downloaded beejive for it. Is the one for the ipod touch the same as the bb one? I was thinking of downloading this also and using it when I'm home or in a wi-fi area.

    agreed. of the 'features' to add, the shake to switch chats idea just doesn't seem to fit. it would be ok for dice apps and others that have a 'random' application required of it but in this case, no thanks.

    I agree on the shake. Though neat to do, it just seems overkill. It also looks quite strange to be shaking and I actually prefer not to as at first glance it could look very lewd.

    The shake was cool for the first 5 minutes, then... the lack of intuitiveness kicked in and I turned it off.

    Great program, but where are the smilies and direct file transfer?

    I still cannot change my account picture for my yahoo account either... and it goes blank when I sign in :(

    $15.99?

    That's brutal. Can it really be worth that money?

    Ah, there it is. Can't have a thread about Beejive without someone whining about the price.

    ah the shake function sucks, it's very sensitive. it will switch windows on you unexpectedly and you might end up in the wrong conversation window.....

    They said both of those are coming soon, perhaps they are making their own smilies to be used across all IM programs? Palringo did that didn't they? Also with the file transfer they want to make it a proper transfer, not just a link to the file. Already you can see the difficulties of this on the iPhone; where does the file go? How can you view it after you close the app? Things like that have to be sorted out before they can release it.

    Might be a bug with your picture problem, you should email them and see what they say.

    I asked about the real transfer thing on their forums they said it would save to your camera roll.

    As for the Yahoo Picture thing I can't set my own either.
