If you use eBuddy XMS on your BlackBerry as a cross-platform messenger, you will be happy to learn that a new version has been released that not only adds support for older OS' (4.6 and above) but also group messaging! You can now chat with up to 30 of your friends at once, whether they are on BlackBerry, iOS, Android, Windows phones, or Nokia. They even have a desktop application, so if you don't feel like picking up your phone you don't have to.

If you don't currently have an app for cross-platform messaging, or maybe you're looking for something new to try, eBuddy XMS has a lot of features you might enjoy. XMS users in your phone book are automatically added to your XMS contact list, and you can link your Facebook account to find more friends. Messages also have sent and read indicators, (a la BBM) so you always know the status of your message. And since the messages are sent via your internet connection, you don't have to worry about texting overages or extra fees. You can find eBuddy XMS in BlackBerry App World for free at the link below, and for other platforms simply visit ebuddyxms.com.

eBuddy XMS update brings group chat and support for older devices

Too many chat SMS apps have fragmented my friends. So, regular SMS is the best way to communicate now. If six people have this app six others have another causing me go nuts.

Hi,

Aleksandra from XMS is here.

eBuddy XMS takes your profile picture from Facebook, so if you connect your Facebook account you will see a picture, same goes for your friend. We're going to improve this functionality and bring more options for profile picture in the nearest future.

Hope this helps.

Nothing can beat BBM. I tried the cnetd app also as they gave me three free licences. Deleted it in two days. I also have whatsapp . But nothing comes close to BBM. As most of my frnds and business contacts are on BBM i dont need any other third party app.

The advantage of eBuddy XMS that it is cross-platform, so you can talk with friends on another smartphones as well.

Hope this helps.

I used eBuddy when chatting to friends and family who only used Yahoo! or Windows Messenger. I'm not sure what the difference is between this and eBuddy XMS and no one can seem to tell me.

Hi,

eBuddy messenger connects your Instant Messaging accounts, while eBuddy XMS connects to your phonebook/ Facebook and allows you to chat with friends who also have XMS installed.

Hope this helps.

I would have used this app, if the chats clients (skype,gtalk, msn) were included. It nice to have everthing in one place.

However everyone and his mother has whatsapp in the netherlands, so there is no real use for this app anymore, it seems.
