    Well I've tried all the IM apps out there trying to find something to replace my beloved Bbm since I switched over to iPhone.

    -Whatsapp seems to be the most popular one but doesn't show read receipts.

    -Kik what's banned by RIM.
    -pingchat has ridiculous banner ads.
    -cnectd also has banner ads.

    Enter liveprofile.

    Fairly new app that is getting updates all the time. Works really good on my iPhone an is completely free and doesn't have any annoying ads filling up my screen.

    iPhone and android versions out already with new features and optimizations comin shortly. And blackberry version coming this week!!

    I think this might be the new cross platform IM standard.

    Thank you liveprofile!!

    Of course WhatsApp shows read receipts. One checkmark for delivered, 2 for read. It's been the gold standard for a long time.

    Maybe Live Profile will catch up. It didn't do much for me.

    my groups have switched to using whatsapp, and read receipts aren't really missed - at least for me. we wanted to try liveprofile, but it doesnt yet support groups. whatsapp is currently the only iphone app that supports groups AND is available to blackberry users.

    Nope. You only get that 2nd checkmark when it's read, as on iOS the app has to be live to be delivered so they're the same thing.

    WhatsApp is still the best out there - and doesn't require new pins or nicknames to use.

    Alli, one check mark means the message was delivered to the server and two means that the message was successfully delivered to the device, not when it is read. It is on the whatsapp website. liveprofile is the most similar to bbm. whatsapp is a fantastic app but you do not get the same sent, delivered, read notifications as you would on liveprofile.

    Sorry you're mistaken...... It means deliverred to the device.

    try sending a message, then waiting till it's deliverred. Switch to a different chat on the receiving iphone, then send another one. You'll get the double checkmark before you open the message up again, because it's still connected to the server.

    And obviously you haven't read it yet since the you're in a different chat.....

    I started using LiveProfile to test it out. Only they need is group chat. WhatsApp has it, but your phone number has to be given to that user for them to message you.

    If you're using it to replace sms/mms, the other person has your phone number. If you're using it to replace the anonymity of yahoo messenger...why not just use yahoo on your phone.

    It seems a lot of people like BBM not for the fact that it replaces sms, but because it offers anonymous chat.

    yup. i know a lot of females that say they rather give their pin #s then their phone number. they can delete and block the person or never accept their request. lol.

    for me, it's another email that has to be created for yahoo, gtalk, aim or live messenger.

    I installed this app yesterday and the app freaking rocks!!! This could be the BBM for X platform!! IMO i think TiPB need to make a social networking forum for this like Crackberry does. I have to admit, thats what makes Crackberry a bigger community.

    Whatsapp is crap IMO.. like someone has said above, you have to give out your phone number. With this you give out a PIN.. way better and more secure. When the BB version is out.. it will rock. The point of BBM is to be able to contact ANYONE, ANYWHERE for FREE!! this is what LiveProfile is for.


    BTW my PIN is LPPFHDTK :P

    the problem I see is that most of my BB friends refuse to try any app other than BBM. I don't know about your BB friends.... I guess I need new friends! lol

    Ya. That will happen.... But eventually their Bbm lists will be smaller and smaller..... So they will be forced to use something else. Mine did so I tried something else and now I won't ever go back to a blackberry.

    Actually when I switched a Bbm friend of mine told me to get Whatsapp so she could still chat with me. She said that she actually uses Whatsapp more than Bbm on her blackberry! She hates Whatsapp but at least all her friends are on there.

    waiting for the groups chats myself...

    i know quite a few people who would dump their BBs and get iPhones for the group chats.

    If anybody is on the fence between the different "BBM replacement" messengers:

    Whatsapp:

    -Finds buddies to add via your phone contact list
    - Landscape keyboard
    -Share photos, location (good for having your friend meet you at a spot), contact info
    -More customization (more alert sounds, wallpaper background)
    -No profile pic or avatar
    -99 Cents for iPhone
    - Free for BB (someone mentioned that it's free for the first year then you have to pay)

    LiveProfile:
    -Find people via Facebook friend list, phone contacts, or you can manually enter unique PINs
    -Don't need to be a phone contact in your address book to be added
    -Can share photos and insert emoticons
    -Profile/avatar pic
    -Can change your display name
    -No Landscape
    -No real customization: can't change alert sound, background/wallpapers, etc
    -Free for iPhone
    - Not currently ready for BB

    I personally have both and I give a slight edge to Whatsapp since it's more polished at the moment than LiveProfile. LiveProfile seems like once it matures then it will be a better platform just because it's based on a PIN system.

    I'll still give the edge to LiveProfile because of the phone number part. That's the whole purpose of using an IM. Might as well just SMS at that point.

    LiveProfile is also set to release for other platforms. Has WhatsApp stopped at BB, iPhone and Android?

    I actually can't wait for the wp7 version to come out.

    I'm also eagerly awaiting the group chat feature. The closer it gets to BBM the better. Can you record a voice message and send it using LiveProfile? Looks like this app will be very nice once it's all finished. My PIN is LPFM6AMF feel free to add me.
