    i use the Q for more than the phone functions and that is why i got it as a gift for my birthday :) from my son.

    i do wish the battery was not so whimpy.

    Hey all,

    It would be nice if this program could be enginered to 'catch' incoming and outgoing SMS - to act as a SMS thread program. It seems that the technology is there for the Q, it just needs to be 'played with'
    to unlock the potential...

    Thanks,

    MatT!

    I think Yap doesnt require both parties to have the appliction though. I dont know too many peopl with Smartphones/PPC. So this may be more useful for me.

    Hhahahha,. True. I dont know if its just me, but I'm finding that people communicate and can speak more freely text messages now then talking on the phone. Besides, so of my female friends are annoying to talk to on the phone.

    YAP seems neat. However, do perform how it claims it must be constantly waiting for audio to zap to the server....i could see the performance and battery problems now....but that's fine cause i like the concept.... unless there's a hot key to activate on the fly - that would be cool. any betas of this out there?

    Yeah, that would be good. I have a 2100 battery on my PPC6800. So I'm not to worried.

    Hello from Yap HQ!

    Hi guys,

    We've been reading your entertaining thread. :) And yes, there's plenty of use cases when you'll want text to pop out on the other end...reaching out to multiple folks simultaneously, doing a Google search, etc.

    Rest assured that you'll be able to run it in the background with near zero battery hit...it's designed to help you & then get the heck out of the way. We hired the industry's leading power management architect (he previously worked on the iPod), so rest assured we have that covered. In fact, we were able to send a couple thousand messages before the battery drained on a test unit...and it wasn't on a full charge to begin with. Oh, and it was a 3G device with a notorious battery life to start. ;-)

    Keep your feedback coming & get ready to yap on! Please signup for our newsletter & you'll know as soon as we turn the lights on (right now we're in closed trials).

    Regards,
    i.

    glad we could contribute to your entertainment... :}

    we like it when developers swing by here to check out the feedback that else perhaps not all ends up with those developers. i used Palringo for a few hours last friday and the battery when downhill pretty quick... in fact so quick that i didn't run the program since. overall i am pretty satisfied with the battery life and there was nothing different then any other day besides using Palringo. and for the record i was/am not the only one that experienced it..

    overall though, a great app..

    No worries...conceptually certain developers in the messaging realm are on the right path, but it's the execution that matters. Case in point, other early search engines had more features than Google out of the gate, but speed and accuracy always win in the end.

    The same goes for mobile messaging...you have to account for ease of install/use, power/radio management, not stepping on the carriers/device makers/portals, etc. Not for the faint of heart. But you guys will definitely be surprised when you see where this ends up. And you'll immediately recognize your feedback being important to where Yap evolves into, since you guys make up the early wave of high tech. :)
