    Noticed that WhatsApp does not work with iPad which is a bit of a let down. So my question is what messaging app that is always on do people find best ?

    Thx

    Well the girlfriend uses a Blackberry which is why we found WhatsApp so handy - looks like im+ is the only other app that allows connections thru Blackberry.

    I use IM+ for the iPhone and iPad mainly because you only had to buy it once and it worked on both where a lot of companies wanted to sell you 2 versions. I know there are free versions out there but I use some of the paid features and I hate ads.

    Can I only sign-in to IM+ with say one messenger i.e: MSN or can I sign in and use multiple ?

    Multiple accounts are supported. However the free app doesn't support Skype.

    Thanks lads - reckon I will go with IM+ as I need for it to be Blackberry compatible.

    How is trillian working?


    I originally bought BeejiveIM a while ago but refuse to buy it again for the ipad. At least with trillian I can use one copy on iphone/ipad and its free on mac. Another great feature that it has is continuous client support between mac and ios apps.

    What do you mean, it doesn't work on the iPad? Looks to me like it's an iPhone app, which should work on the iPad, even if the graphics and UI aren't optimized for it.

    I like it. I also had beejive originally, but it wad painfully slow, so I looked into Trillian. That was almost 2 years ago I think and I've been very happy with it. It loads up quick and the push notifications are instant. It also supports multitasking. I think I paid like $3 for it and it's been worth every penny.

    I'm still waiting for an Adium app though. :D

    Hmmmm....

    By "Blackberry Compatible" are you talking about being able to communicate with the native Blackberry Messenger built into all BBerries?

    Because if so, I'm running the paid version of IM+ and I see no way to do this.
