Let's talk about Instant Messaging Programs Ok, had my Sprint Q for a while now, been trying out several different IM programs, and having some trouble finding one I really like. So I thought I would relay my experience with the programs I have tried, link to them, for the sake of others, and hope some of you who have tried other IM apps can let me know about your program of choice. ... Agile - $11.95 Three months / $44.95 Life Probably one of the most stylized IM programs, and free for Windows Mobile until recently. Sadly it suffered from a number of bugs that you can find out about if you search the forums or download the trial, as the bugs persist in the premium version. Some people like the style, personally I don't care for it, but I it's also not stable enough for me to warrent a purchase. Site ... IM+ - #29.95 This is one of the two IM programs everyone seems to use, especially now that Agile is not longer free. It's got a prettty standard interfact if your familiar with AIM, thankfully the status bar is grey not sky blue like in the screenshots. You can rename your contacts, but sadly not organize them into folders (Though it will recognize what you already have setup on your account) nor can you create/rename folders. The program works well enough, but I had one glaring problem with IM, and sadly one that did not go away, that being (Atleast with GoogleTalk) some contacts would fail to show they were online. If I used another App, or my desktop App they showed as on, I could even have a conversation with them in IM+ but they still showed as offline, which was a problem for me since GoogleTalk is one of the IMs I need to work. Site ... iMov - $19.95 Unfortinately I have not found a Trial version of this product, so I have not tried it. Site ... Octro - Free This is a currently free IM tool, and I rather like it's style, in fact I liked it alot, but it had a couple problems. It supports groups, and you can rename the contacts. You HAVE to use Google Talk with it (Though it does support VOIP via Google), and all other IMs are passthroughs, be they Yahoo, MSN, AOL, etc, and because of that you get several new contacts in your GoogleTalk buddy list such as "SoAndSo@yahoo.com.octro.com" which I find annoying personally. The biggest problem with Octro though, is that it has a tendency to turn off (End it's process) when it has been idle for a while. Site ... WebMessenger - $5.95 One Month / $29.95 Year This is what I am using now, I'd never heard of it before, I found it on the Sprint Moto Q Store site, and so far I like it. I supports all the standard IM protocalls, GoogleTalk and Yahoo being the important ones for me, but it also supports vanilla Jabber, and... Skype (Yes Skype the VOIP protocal), I have not tested the VOIP though. It allows you to rename and organize your contacts which is important for me, and you can re-organize/rename the folders too. Site ... There are other features I could mention for these Apps, I'm definately going to be keeping an eye on Octro, but right now WebMessenger seems to fit the bill for me (Still in trial though). But if any of you have any suggestions for other programs I should try, please let me know, I'm looking for programs that support Google Talk and Yahoo at minimum, though AIM and MSN are nice to have as well, being able to organize contacts into folders, and rename contacts is important too... So if you know something like that give a shout. And if you're just in the market for an IM program yourself, give these programs a look, and I hope it's a helped you atleast, some.
