BeejiveIM 3.0 Review: Beautiful and Power Packed Instant Messaging App

BeejiveIM 3.0 Rating: ★★★★½

BeejiveIM is a powerful Push enabled Instant Messaging client with great features and superior user interface!

Beejive’s reliable and efficient networking has been tested and proven on multiple platforms. Now it is available for the iPhone. Move from 3G, Edge, and wifi connections seamlessly. Stay connected after you close the application and be notified when you get a new message through push notifications. After being out of coverage BeejiveIM automatically reconnects and picks up where you left off.

Instant Messaging (IM) apps for iPhone/iPod touch have made it possible to be truly mobile and never lose out on a conversation just because you were not close to your Mac or PC. There are plenty of IM apps available on the app store and sometimes it gets difficult to choose which one meets your need. BeejiveIM 3.0 for iPhone is one of the most stable and feature rich IM applications with very intuitive User Interface.

The app allows you to set up AIM®/MobileMe®, MSN®/Windows Live®, Yahoo!®, GoogleTalk®, Facebook, MySpace, ICQ® and Jabber accounts. Setting up multiple accounts on BeejiveIM 3.0 is very easy, tap the Accounts tab and select the accounts you would like to configure and then enter your Screen-name, Password and description. Once your accounts are set up you can choose your status (Online, Away, Busy or Custom) for individual accounts or for all accounts at once.

Buddy List can be customized to show buddies by account or by group, you can also select hide offline contacts to keep your list uncluttered. Favorites is a great way to catch up with people who you chat with very frequently, avoiding the need to scroll through a long list of buddies. Tapping a buddy on the list brings up the chat window and there your conversation appears in native iChat bubble style. To bring up the text input screen you need to tap on the conversation screen which brings up the keyboard and you can also insert smilies or emoji. BeejiveIM makes it possible for you to be able to send pictures from your iPhone/iPod touch, record voice messages and send them as attachments, email the entire chat in .txt format, scroll through other active chats by flicking or end the conversation by accessing the in-chat menu options.

Push works flawlessly on BeejiveIM 3.0 sending you updates on conversation while the app is closed in almost real time. When you tap on the push notification the app restores the conversation from where it last ended, which is great to recall what you were chatting about. There are tons of options to customize the look and features of the app from the native Settings app on your iPhone. Customization options include transitions, Auto Capitalization, shake options, sounds, tweaking UI, wallpaper and many more.

BeejiveIM 3.0 is a beautiful and power packed Instant Messaging app.
