    I think it's cool so far, I was stuck in a decision between IM+ and Beejive, I was leaning towards beejive then decided IM+ has slightly better functionality, and price justification.Cant complai at £2.99

    2 improvements I think is needed, is the ability to have a display picture when signed into IM+

    Ability to change notification sounds

    And the ability to change font colour,style,size

    The GUI is horrible also... looks like a 5th graders crack induced crayon party.

    Crayon-wielding chimp having a heart attack was much more funny... and original.

    Speaking of IM+ though, I just switched back tonight because Beejive is pretty much crap. :eek:
    I see nothing but spinners and failed messages even though I have full service. I really hope they get an update out soon...

    IM+'s icon is pretty ugly. But BeeJive is too expensive...

    I bought both, but I gravitate towards beejive more thaN IM+. I'M+ was my backup when beejive was having problems with push, but lately I haven't had to use it in a couple of weeks.

    I would always recommend beejive over IM+ anyday.

    I just hope they do something with the alert sound in a coming update. I just restored from jailbreak last night and don't feel like doing it again.

    I got booted a few times last night, was kind of irritating. If IM+ would mature their GUI and fix buddy icons etc... id switch.

    Yeah I think this app's biggest problem is the lack of auto-reconnect. Sure, Beejive gets it's random disconnects but I hardly ever know about it. With IM+ I'll go in to talk to somebody and realize that I'm not even online and I have no idea how long I've been out.

    I also agree with the lack of buddy icons being a weakness.

    And there is something about the chat bubbles... Another interesting app coming out at some point is the new mobilechat... new ownership - or so they claim... Probably the same clowns.

    Odd. I wasn't able to find the current version. Did it get pulled from the app store? Did it suck that bad?

    It always had the best UI by a long shot, just never had the server stability or the programming.

    IM+ is not connecting at all for me right now, constantly says 'Restoring'.

    Its now £2.99? Thats news to me, last time I checked they wanted about a fiver for it and I wasnt willing to pay that despite wanting to see what its like. But 2.99 somehow seems a bit more reasonable. Might have to check it out, do you think its a big improvement over IM+ Lite?
