The ever popular multi-platform instant messaging client Beejive has been brought out of beta today, and into the Android Market for $10. Beejive is very polished, user friendly, and capable of handling messages from AIM, iChat, MobileMe, MSN, Windows Live, Yahoo!, Facebook, MySpace, GoogleTalk, ICQ, and Jabber. While I have yet to use Beejive (I believe that for the most part, the IM is dead), the general consensus seems to be that you get what you pay for. There are alternatives out there that you could try first if forking over a 10 spot makes you a little uneasy. Meebo is available for free in the Market, and Trillian still has a free open beta going on. Once Trillian leaves the open beta, the app is projected to be priced at $5.
Instant messaging fans, what say you? The award for best multi messaging client available goes to…. ?
