IM+

IM+, from Shape Services, is designed to give social butterflies a one stop shop for their instant messaging needs. With thumbs blazing, users can access and manage their accounts with various social networks and chat clients. This means that you can chat away with friends on Twitter, Windows Live Messenger, MySpace and more- all from one application. That means no more switching back and forth between multiple applications to keep up with your chit-chatting ways. IM+ is available in two flavours; Lite, for free and Pro. You can check out our review of IM+ here. IM+ Lite was recently updated to version 8.5.1 to include the following: 

  • Completely redesigned user interface with new theme available.
  • New UI elements with tabs, new message indicators etc.
  • Convenient history review for all conversations.
  • Improved group chat for MSN and Skype.

If you want to take a swing at an easier way to handle your conversations, try out IM+ Pro or Lite.

IM+ Lite updated to version 8.5.1

I upgraded from the previous version to this new version a few days ago and it doesn't work, but it appears that it's a BES IT Policy that it doesn't like. It wants all permissions to be allowed and there's one that's set to Deny (Security Timer Reset) and it's not allowing it to run. Oh well, I paid for BeeJive, might as well use it, even though it's buggy as hell.

IM+ lite, nimbuzz, or trillian? Which is the best FREE IM app? Currently trying out trillian..like it so far

When you download it and run it, it says IM plus Lite is requesting changes to its application control permissions. So i press VIEW.............All permissions are set to ALLOW with the exception of one - Security Timer Reset and you can not change this one. So i just press the BACK button and SAVE to the changes made, even though i made no changes. Next I get a message saying - You have set the application to prohibit the necessary permission changes. IM+ Lite will now close.

So I can never get it to work, any suggestions?

Don't know if you tried this already but when this happened with another app I dl'ed, I went into the Applications folder in Options, found the app, clicked on it, and edited permissions there to Allow. Afterwards, everything was good.

The thing wants permission to reset the security timer, and that's pretty much a no-no on any Blackberry with an IT Policy on it (meaning connected to a Blackberry Enterprise Server). Shape Services needs to fix this, because I bet it doesn't work on most BES Blackberries right now.

But will only allow skype to stay logged in for 30mins. After that you have to log back in manually. I depend on skype and I'm cheap so I'll stick with iSkoot.
