    All play and no work makes TiPb pretty happy really. But with the GRAND PRIX done and the great prizes won, its time for us to get back to business, and that means a new contest with even more App Store apps, more TiPb reviews, and more ways for you our readers to win AT WORK!

    Once a week for the next few weeks were going to review 2 business/productivity Apps head-to-head and app-vs-app. But heres the twist: there are so many Apps, we cant decide which ones to review. So the TiPb iPhone Forum will decide for us!

    Every Thursday well be posting a poll up in the forums containing the candidates for review. You vote on your favorites and well review the top two. Voting closes on Saturday, and we review on Wednesday. Based on our review scores, were going to pick the winner of the head-to-head and TWO of you, are going to win that app! (Technically: an iTunes App Store gift certificate in the amount of the winning productivity app).

    TWO of you? Yup, each week, one TiPb iPhone Forum member who votes (or posts on the thread) and one blog reader who leaves a comment on the review will EACH win a copy of the winning App!

    We'll announce the Forum winner next week when you we launch the next poll. (First winner announced on second poll, second winner on third poll, etc.) So make sure you hit them all!

    One more thing: TiPb reserves the right to throw a final twist in at the end.

    Contest details can be found on the blog.

    So what are you waiting for? Get voting!

    I voted for Palringo. So far (out of the free IM's) it is the best for me. It allows you to stay online for 10 minutes or so after you close out the program. I'd like to see it compared to BeeJive but I don't have the extra $ to buy it.

    Honestly though you should've waited until push notification was released to do an IM review. How the app works with push functionality will be the real test.

    BeejiveIM is really sweet, once you get past the price. Most reliable by far. And yes I have them all.

    Im not sure how the others work. But i enjoy the fact that atleast the AIM messenger has the convo recorded. So i can look back on what i've written in the past. Reminds me of when i used to use ICQ back in the day simply for the im recording log. Regardless, i still seem to use sms more than im apps due to the constraint of not many of my friends use these actively. Do carrier pigeons count towards IM's?

    Unfortunately, it's a bit late... But that just means we have an excuse for an eventual VOiP App vs. App!
