    Why can't we just get a good IM app like beejive for android? I have an iPod Touch and every IM app I've seen in the apple app store blows anything we got. Meebo, ebuddu, hi aim, yahoo and all that other crap sucks compared to the iPhone IMs. Is there a way to contact google or someone incharge of the market place to add more IM apps?

    I personally use eBuddy.. although the java version on my Sony Ericsson allows for photo transfers I don't really miss it in the Android version. I can chat on Facebook, MSN & Yahoo at once with no problems.. and these are just the services I use. Android is far better than the iClone but no one needs to beat a dead horse. Keep checking the market.. they are adding new apps all the time.

    I hear you, eBuddy is ok, but take for example the simple yahoo messenger app for iPod touch has so much more features than any of our apps. All I want is an app that 1. Stays logged on 2. Allow you to see your friend pic icon 3. Allow you to see your own pic icon and change it 4. Be able to send files/pic and be able to recieve files. Oh and send smilies forgot to say that one. I've e-mailed ebuddy and meebo's developer to ask If they could add these simple features and I got no response so I guess they don't care. I mean I'm willing to pay if I have to

    I am sure if you asked Google nicely, they would write an app to use Yahoo!'s IM service.

    This is one thing I absolutely miss on the iPhone (and the one case where I prefer push notifications over running app in the background). Beejive is amazing, and was the 1st app I decided to ever actually purchase on my old iPhone.

    Android is seriously lacking in the IM department, which bothers me ... I use ebuddy if i need to IM someone on the go, but I never once have enjoyed using it, meebo, or hello aim.
