I just looked and DL'd the app. It is decent but lacks lots of features the paid versions do. Plus the UI lacks the sexiness the others like IM+ and Beejive have. Also no landscape(which is a must for me). Looks like it doesnt support avatar views, you have to creat some eBuddy ID for some reason and if you dont you cant log into any IM account you have, which is utterly lame to have this process, why do I need to register to view my IM'S. Lame, I'll gladly pay $10 for IM+ or Beejive over these hurdles I encountered in the first minute with the app.
I might end up buying BeeJive (or IM+, dunno which one is better) but this remains the only free IM app with push support so I geussed some people would be interested in it

Have fun with it though, I guarantee the reviews of this app. 90% will complain about the pre registration w/ eBuddy.
I suggest getting IM+ you will never turn back, Beejive is good to for $10, not $15
Anyways, BeeJive and IM+ are both the same price. Some reviews on the app store (theyre usually not very reliable) claim the IM+ push is faster somehow, though

i keep hearing about how great BeeJive is. what ever happened to the meebo app that meebo previewed at WWDC?! come on meebo! i don't want to have to use Safari to run my IM. i want an app for that.
i used meebo on my desktop forever and loved it (yes, i know it was a web based program too). hopefully this will come out soon. but sadly, not as soon as 3.0 was released.

This app is further junk upon review. First off, you can only stay on for 30 minutes, or else you have to keep opening the app. Second, the push message doesnt include a message like the other IM clients, the message they push just says...YOU HAVE A NEW MESSAGE FROM _ _ _ _. It doesnt display the actual message. Third I had 4 IM sent to me in attempt to be pushed a message while in this app, and none came thru. And this was the only IM app i had connected to my accounts. I will say the old term, 'you get what you pay for'. Just get IM+

i'll give IM+ a look-see.

Theyre practically identical. I just prefer IM+ because it has Twitter and Skype support. Some like the UI of Beejive better from what I have read, but IM+ added custom background support for the messaging interface so it has options. Theyre both good, but since I support IM+ I always recommend it
