I'm sure Trillian being released this week has nothing to do with the lowered price. :)

Doesn't seem to be doing a great job at beating Trillian. Which is #1 in the Social Networking category right now.

Only because its something new to try. I looked at trillion but it requires you to make a trillion account. Thats one more step not needed when using beejive.

The one thing about beejive is that they seem to strive in functionality over features. and $6.99 is the cheapest it has every been. I would grab that if someone was looking for an IM client.

That stat is based on recent activity. Clearly Trillian doesn't even come close the Beejive with their first version. The number of Beejive users still greatly outnumbers Trillian users.

I bought Beejive when it first came out for $15, it's been worth every dime. Sale price is very worth it, grab it now! As for Trillian, competition is a wonderful thing.

Btw, one of the big factors in Beejive's favor is long term reliability. It's been on the mobile market longer than the iPhone. The artist formerly known as JiveTalk.

Say what? Beejive strives for functionality over features? You've gotta be ******** me. Look at the options for Beejive. Most are just garbage. Wow. Some of you on this forum make me feel like a damn genius.

Beejive does have some great functionality, and has for a long time. You just have to know how to use them. One example is during an chat you can touch the top of the screen to bring up a drop down, and scrollable, menu to choose between chats, even unused ones. The drop down also brings up photo attachments, emails, and such. It's done beautifully, takes up no space until you want it.

Sure but there are some stupid stupid stupid options in the application that seriously aren't "functionality" it's more like "distractionality" from the fact that the app is a bug ridden pile of trash.

I don't have any bugs with Beejive. Even when Facebook changes login procedures Beejive devs answer their forums and post the incoming fix. It's ok for people to like different apps, you don't have to like the same one someone else does.

Try turning your iphone in landscape mode. Then send yourself a message on a desktop and click View at the homescreen during the push notification. The app will open. Crap itself in a state that the only way you can do anything is to close the app and reopen it. It's been in every version of 3.0 was released. I've reported it dozens of times and they refuse to fix it.

Here's a link to the video I just took.

That's just one of many I have submitted to them. Sorry for the quality, just took it to prove that Beejive's support sucks.

Disagree ...yes, Beejive has more features being a mature product,
but one thing i like, and is very important to me, is Trillians fast connect
times (WiFi or 3G) ...of all the msg apps i've tried, so far, it's the fastest.
For v1.0, i've found it to be a very reliable/stable product.
