BeejiveIM for iPad 4.0

The development of internet enabled mobile devices such as the iPhone, iPod and iPad opened up a whole new world of communication opportunities that just simply hadn’t existed before. Users of desktop computers have becomes used to working with instant messaging tools to keep in touch with friends, family and colleagues online, but the problem is that there are a number of protocols to choose from.

BeejiveIM enables you to keep in touch with your contacts from the comfort of your iOS device. This in itself is nothing to get excited about, but the app supports a large number of protocols - AIM, MobileMe, MSN, Windows Live, Yahoo!, GoogleTalk, Facebook, MySpace, and Jabber - so there so there is no need to install multiple apps.

The app can be used on 3G and wifi connections, and push notifications ensure that you are kept updated of incoming messages regardless of whether the app is running in the foreground.

There are problems however. The interface leaves a great deal to be desired - even on the iPad's large screen it is not only ugly but also cluttered. And then there is the price. BeejiveIM may do the job of several IM clients, but the price tag is undeniably high.
