GREAT IM Messaging Application

I know that the Imagio came with a default application with MSN, Yahoo and AIM. However, I didn't like them all that much. They were a little bugy to me and I got charged for the IM's. But now, no longer.

I have Google Chat, AIM, MSN, Yahoo all running and running VERY!!! well. The application is called Palringo. Uses MINIMAL memory, FAR!!! less then default application, and it incorporates Google Maps/Latitude.

Give it a try if you're wanting something new/better.

Re: GREAT IM Messaging Application

The application itself works pretty well, but it had a lot of trouble logging into my accounts. And it doesn't group my contacts.

I'm using ebuddy, with java.

Palringo doesn't exit either. I can hold the X but it still runs in the background.

Re: GREAT IM Messaging Application

Has anyone else noticed that when this program is running the phone doesn't automatically go into lock mode? I noticed after I installed this prog. I diabled it and my phone lock automatically again, is there a fix for this, I really liked this app.

Yea, same here, really annoying. Only fix I can figure is to make sure "auto-run on start" is not checked, and power cycle the phone when you want to close Palringo. Pretty annoying, hopefully a new build will be available before long.

I really liked BeeJive's client as well. If I recall however the last version they had was a battery hog unfortunately.

Re: GREAT IM Messaging Application

I've been using Palringo almost since I got the phone and I like it alot. I tried a couple others (most notably, Nimbuzz, which was a crashy mess) but ended up sticking with Palringo.

You are paritally right. Hitting the "X" just closes the GUI. To close the program completely tho you don't need to reboot the phone. Just go to "Menu" and "Exit".

(Un)fortunately I have not had the lock mode problems others have reported here so I don't have a quick fix for that.
