    What do you think of the Apps interface, reliability, price, do you regret buying it? Please tell me the good and the bads.

    I am considering buying it.

    Rate it with Apples:)apple:)

    To me it is

    The UI is pretty great, in my opinion. Doesn't look flawed. The reliability is great, and the price of $15.99 is a little high, but in time it'll become worth it if you're an avid user. I rate it : :apple::apple::apple::apple::apple:

    OK, I guess I will buy it, as soon as I get a refund for MobileChat.
    I can not wait to get it.

    Beejive is great just pricey. I wonder if they will have a sale like just about every other app I purchased.

    The price kind of held me back, but I just got really drunk one night and bought it, and I'm in love with it.

    It works greats, they have a good background in solid IM apps (so I will be pretty surprised to see a server issue :p), the UI is nice, the logo isn't amazing, I love it!

    i like it alot i waited and read several reviews on here and everyone seemed pretty pleased with it so I bought it and I love it, to me the price is worth it especially as much i use it, I dont mind paying a little more as long as it works and for me it has worked exactly as advertised, I havent had one problem with it.

    Apps Interface... Superb and very pleasing to the eye. The transparent chat screen is awesome.

    Reliability... I've never missed a message. Push notification to my MobileMe is flawless. I may actually switch it to sms (

    Price... I think it's worth it, but will be even more so with push notification (if that ever comes).

    If I could get my money back, I wouldn't take the offer. I love it as much as twitterriffic.

    You can check out this thread I have with my impressions an pictures.

    I love BeeJive. I have no regrets plunking down $15 for quality software.

    I don't think the price is too high when you compare it to similar programs for the Blackberry or Palm platforms. The program works as advertised and the alert notifications are handy.

    It is worth the cost to me, but I need IM for professional as well as private reasons. The official AIM application will be enough for most people I imagine.

    I agree with everyone. Best IM app out there so far. I've had all of them, trust me. Even mobilechat.

    Don't bother waiting for a refund. I contacted apple over a month ago and they haven't even replied (yet?).

    I rate it :apple::apple::apple:

    3/4 only because they can make it so much better. They can add the photo feature palringo has, smileys, etc.

    Beejive is one of the few apps out there that are useful. It is worth every bit of the price. It is also one of the apps that 99% of the forum users here rate very highly. The only ones that don't seem to be relatives of Mobilechat devs or cheapskates that don't own it.

    I enjoy the app.

    I forked out the dough for it, and I have yet to regret it. It works, and I use this app the most out of all of them. Is the price high? Yeah it is, but it is hard to focus on that when the app is doing what they said it would.

    With so many apps that don't work as advertised, Beejive is worth it. I wouldn't buy it if I didn't use chat a lot though.

    I love it mostly.

    I wish they would add the ability to send a picture (from camera or your photo library on the phone).

    Palringo has that feature (and sending voice).

    On their site it says it is coming and will be real transfer instead of the stupid upload to server link thing.

    BeejiveIM 1.0.2 is out!

    Major new features that I care about:
    - Auto away: allows you to set a timeframe for when you should appear away between immediately and 1 hour
    - Disable the disconnect messages - No more annoying You have connected elsewhere messages when you know that already (note: isn't clear whether this disables all disconnect messages such as network disconnects but for me that doesn't concern me)
    - Memory management is improved so keyboard lag should be reduced

    This program is worth the money it is the best IM program for the iphone!
    I wasn't sure at first because it is expensive but you pay for what you get the program works great.

    Also the new updates are awesome runs even better and that new feature to shake the phone to switch IM's is really cool!

    I just purchased a 2g touch. Would this app be useful if only over wifi or is it more for a data plan app? Sorry new to these apps, thanks
