    Use Nimbuzz.

    Fring is also about to release their app (I'm on their beta list and am liking it more than Nimbuzz at the moment).

    Both apps do YIM, plus a load of other IM stuff - MSN, Skype etc.

    Please keep this thread going. I haven't found a good IM app for yahoo messenger yet. HI Yahoo sucks, IM+ sucks, Meebo is ok, but you can't send files and it logs me off randomly and force closes. Seems as if Nimbuzz does this as well. At least with Meebo you can log in as invisible. It's the best I've tried so far.

    I've been using Meebo and pretty happy when it works. Nice user interface, pretty user friendly, etc. Also lets you log on to "facebook chat" which is cool. I will admit that I've had it force close on me a couple times. It hasn't happened enough times for me to really start looking for something else, but if it becomes a real pattern, I will. Haven't heard of any great alternatives, though. C'mon Android developers, lets get something good out!

    It's interesting that yahoo hasn't developed an app for the droid yet. Maybe because they are competitors??

    it's odd that there is no first party developed apps for any IM client aside from talk

    There's Skype Lite - but it's a horrible resource hog - Nimbuzz and Fring both cover skype as well as the others and are much better

    I can't comment on nimbuzz since I haven't used it, but I've been running meebo for a couple of days with no drops at all.

    Anyone know of a good IM / Instant Messenger app that alerts you when a contact signs on or becomes available?

    My inferior BB Storm used to do it. It was even able to set a custom "available" tone for each contact. I know my droid has to have an app that does that.

    i use meebo also, but ebuddy is goo too. neither notify you if a contact signs on, but both are free. i prefer meebo because it doesn't strain my battery as much as ebuddy.

    I like eBuddy the best. It had some issues before but now it seems to stay connected pretty rock solid and there is a nice battery saving option (but it delays incoming messages when you're phone is sleeping) Plus it supports Facebook chat which I use a lot!

    I updates my wifes hero to 2.1 now she is throwing a fit cause the Im program does not leave her signed on. SHe was able to do it before...anyone have any thoughts. She just wants to log in and stay logged in and message nothing fancy or file transfer.

    Thanks

    I'm getting the Droid X2 tomorrow and I was wondering if the native IM client is an all in one with AOL, Yahoo, GTalk, MSN, Skype, and Facebook?

    the only native IM client Android has is Gtalk...unless Blur has some bloatware I don't know about
