    Are there any decent apps out there that support multiple IM protocols (AIM, Yahoo, MSN, GTalk, Facebook, ICQ) that don't suck?

    eBuddy crashes almost anytime I change orientation or slide the keyboard in.

    Meebo just plain crashes or doesn't stay connected.

    AIM crashes a lot for the same reasons as eBuddy.

    The Hi clients suck, too.

    I asked the same question and it was ignored. I've been using Ebuddy but I don't really care for it.

    I haven't had ebuddy crash but I also didn't reinstall since I got 2.1. I was hoping the official would go out qucik before I install everything again!

    Seems eBuddy is crashing like a drunk pilot on 2.1

    I'm using "Instant Messaging (Powered by OZ)" and it's been working OK for me, but I only use Y!IM. (Is that a built-in app?)

    That's a stock app and it's crap.
