I have beejive and apart from the disconnections my biggest gripe is its useability. When you exit the iphones sms app from a chat page, the next time you go back in you are back in that SAME chat . With beejive you exit from a chat but the next time you go back in you can go to the buddys page or the list of all the chats. You never go back to the same chat. Every time you open it, its 2 or three clicks trying to get back where you want. No to me its unpolished and cluncky and it contrasts to apples own well designed and thought out interfaces. I just shudder to think what that IM is like if people say beejive has the better ui !!!! I could rant on about how difficult it is to add 'buddys' too.. Beejive must do bettter.
