Beejive IM now in market
Beejive - instant messaging anywhere
I've read that this app uses push (cloud to device on Froyo). Anyone try it yet? $10 is steep, but I would pay for a good IM app.

this is what I am wondering, because it SUPPOSEDLY uses push if you have Android 2.2. So, one would think that it does not use a constant connection and messages are actually PUSHED to your device. If this is true, that would be a huge battery saver.

I would imagine it does save on battery, as today's Trillian update uses cloud to device, and I've noticed an improvement.
I used BeeJive religiously when I was a BB user. Is there a trial version for android?"Some see the glass as half-empty, some see the glass as half-full. I see the glass as too big."

Based upon my receipt from the purchase, it implies BlackBerry transfers but as it states the license "can be transferred to other devices for free." I'm no lawyer but by calling it a "User License" I think they need to offer us a free transfer. Otherwise what we actually bought was a "Platform License" and they did not advertise it properly.

The User License is for use on one BlackBerry device at a time but can be transferred to other devices for free. Bring your license with you as you change BlackBerry models. Free software upgrades are included.

Anyone else think this app feels unpolished?
It looks nice but it has an unfinished feel to me. Specifically, the background notifications are odd (don't display message previews like emails or texts), and it doesn't blink the LED.
I bought it and refunded it (for now) because I like Trillian better, but I might try it again after a few updates.
