    Since their attempt to fight piracy the app went more pricy. I was wondering if Beejive is the best msn app out there or there is a better one. Or if the second best sucks, what are the main differences? Should i get beejive or another app?

    More expensive? It's on sale until the 31st!! Get it whilst it's cheap!

    Best IM App by far. And I've tried a few. Well worth the current £5.99.

    Never tried BeeJive. Only AIM and IM+. I suggest staying away from AIM and AIM+. They're filled with adds, they screwed up my contacts, and there are limited features. I use IM+ and love it. It has a landscape keyboard, it's less buggy, it has no connectivity issues, you can select from a list of smilies, and send pictures/locations/audio files.

    They just lowered it to 9.99 again.

    If you use IM a ton, AND, you have your email set on PUSH, then the app is pretty useful.

    However, if you do NOT have your email set to PUSH, then really, the app is a waste. At least, at the moment it is.

    If BeeJive is closed on your phone, it just emails you your IMs. So, no PUSH means no Instant Messaging. Sure, you will get an email eventually that says someone tried to IM you, but what is the point in that? That isnt instant messaging.

    However, one MIGHT want to get it now, while it is on sale, because given how good the program is now, you have to assume they are going to provide a 3.0 update to take advantage of the Apple push server or whatever they are implementing.

    But that is just an assumption, and we know what assume means. :D

    You don't need to have it email the alerts to your email but email it to your phone as a text. Example 1234567889@txt.att.net (where the numbers is your phone number ;include area code of course).

    It is instantaneous! and has never failed me:D

    Because Apple said so. And things aren't great until Apple says so. ;) MMS for example...

    I agree, I think BeejiveIM is the best. I've used it on the Blackberry for years too. Very stable and allows me to connect to 7 different chat clients all at once and works perfectly. Even do file transfers and other advanced features, which as everyone says they keep advancing the product.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the e-mail idea w/ the phone number. I'll give it a shot.
    Will that give me the cell phone icon next to my name on other people's buddy list too?

    For those complaining about the price. Be lucky you don't own a blackberry. They charge $20 for use on one phone (need to rebuy if you get a new phone) and $30 so you can transfer the license to any future blackberry you buy. Given its cost, blackberry users still rave over it's stability and ease of use and prefer it to the free stuff. It's a fantastic all in one messaging program.

    It's a steal for those on an iPhone.
