    I'm giving up on IMs due to battery: They gobble-up battery power like crazy. Yikes.

    Kik has a serious privacy flaw. Kik ties in a person's username with their email address. Kik then sorts through the person's addressbook to find potential friends. This is considered a major privacy issue because a user may not want someone that is in their addressbook to know they have a Kik account--but they will because if they have your email address then they also have your Kik username without authorization or adding that person to your friends list. I understand the usefulness of finding other Kik users quite easily but there should be an ability to turn off the feature that allows Kik to search for other Kik users in your addressbook and SPAMMING them with a "you may know" message.

    There's a reason why Blackberry Messenger allows its users to accept/reject another user before they are able to message them, and that it doesn't just sift through the user's address book looking for other potential BBM users.

    Kik did this when I installed it this morning and found four of my friends were using it. One of them started messaging me without me actually having put him in my contact list. Not that I minded, but it creeped me out.

    I got it. Apparently only one of my contacts has it, lol.

    I'm LambeauLeap, if anyone wants some more friends~

    Sucks that it sucks out the battery- seems ALL IM apps do this. Sigh.

    Has anyone tried PinChat? Its supposed to do the group chat and file share. But it does poll for messages instead of push.

    I like kik. They got slammed today with all the requests to join. Boy genius has an article about it and it says the CEO had to charter a plane and fill it with servers to ship to their location to keep up with demand. Pretty crazy.
