Default MSN for Android?

Can you get an MSN app for Android? I had this on my Nokia but struggle to find it on the Android market.

If not..... whats the best alternative?

The only MSN I can find on the market it just a link to the web version. I want the app on my phone.

eBuddy is one of the best of the two. Fast and easy to use. The only downside is that it doesnt handle smileys very well, they dont all work, and you have to press a few buttons to access the smiley.

The other app is "meebo IM" which handles smilesy and texting better, but not as clean to navigate your contacts when you have multiple chats going.

hi msn seems quite buggy for the hero.

try all 3 and remove the two you dislike

Oh sorry. What I meant was... I'm currently using HTC Hero and I could like to download eBuddy on my phone for MSN use. I tried to find it on Market but I couldn't find it. So I ended up going on the eBuddy's website and they suggested to go to get.ebuddy.com on my phone. When I did, they asked me to pick the phone that I'm using. However, HTC Hero is not on the list. So I'm wondering, can I download eBuddy onto my Hero?

Thanks.

Oh sorry

Yes eBuddy is supported on the Hero , Try searching "eBuddy" with no spaces and if that doesn't work you can scan this QR code below using the "barcode scanner" app and hopefully that should take you straight their

I have no idea why. I tried finding eBuddy on market but couldn't find it. And I just use the barcode scanner to scan the barcode but it said "There are no matches in Android Market for the search: panme:com.ebuddy.android

Could it be possible that b/c I'm living in Hong Kong?

It could be your geographical location

Some apps are not available in certain countries on the Android Market , I don't know why though

You could always try an alternative as mentioned in this thread such as Nimbuzz etc.

this is a rather strange one, when i got my HTC desire, i searched all over the market for an official MSN app, but couldnt find one.

I ended up settling for eBuddy and Meebo.

But just now I heard that if you are on 3 (which I am) and go into favourites, theres a link for a direct download of the .apk for an OFFICIAL app, which is kinda strange.

I just got it and its pretty good ^_^

I dunno if you can do that on other networks though... :/

Hey. Sorry if this has been asked before but does any MSN app not give a preview on the top in the status bar of what someone has said to you?

I'm way out of my league with language here, but I would love some guidance how to sync my MSN email with my HTC Incredible. I have "unopened" emails on my computer and my phone; just can't get the two to be real time, yet the emails have been opened. This was not the case with my Blackberry and my MSN account. I never physically synced the two, but the account was current on both "machines."

Any guidance would be much appreciated. thank you.

I suggest trying Trillian for Android (it used to be a paid app but now it is free)

I think it is the best of the "all-in-one" IM apps for Android.

Only problem is that Trillian for Android doesn't do Skype IM chat. I have a friend who will only use Skype. As a result I've been using IMO aka IMO.IM and it works pretty well. It used to be a bit "buggy" but a recent major update seems to have fixed all the issues I was having.

Anyway I have used both while chatting with friends on MSN and both seem to work A-OK

As for eBuddy ... I see a lot of recommendations for it ... but I've tried it and found the interface to be totally yucky. I don't like it at all.
