imo for BlackBerry

Today imo has announced a beta version of their multiprotocol IM client for BlackBerry. The app is free to download and features multiple services including AIM, Yahoo!, Gtalk, Skype, Jabber, MSN and more. The company has had a web app for quite some time, but this is the first release for BlackBerry Smartphones. While it's still a bit rough around the edges, imo is a pretty decent client if you like the ability to use multiple IM services all in one place. There are plenty of features to keep most users happy, and pretty much all of the "big name" services are included. The app is free (for now) in it's beta form and will soon be on the way to BlackBerry App World. Hit the link below from your device to download. Keep reading for some more screen shots.

Pretty nice interface. I'm diggin it. I also like that it's FREE!

Can this make Skype calls?

I hope it can do everything IM+ can and when released is priced at least half what SHAPE charges.

That should level the field nicely and make app prices closer to a reasonable level.

Too bad it just works over wi-fi. Palringo has the same problem yet more features.

xtremez

Well it's in beta so it's free for now, perhaps without doing any update you might be able to use it for free.

However, if only it can make Skype calls then i think it's worth a consider.

Love the interface, love the ability to integrate skype chat, love that it's fast.... but only on Wifi? C'mon... any BB app that doesn't support BIS is useless to me.

I use Skype calling on the web version on my PlayBook - wonder if this app does it too?

Would be nice if it integrated with the global inbox. Also, the blue led indicator is confusing if BT is active.

jvictor77

From what I've observed, the blue BT indicator only flashes for a while and then stops - at least that's what it does with my PB - so the confusion should only be temporary.

I love where this app is headed, and cant wait to see what's in store for it in the future. Great Job!

I just downloaded it, and all I can say is that it's awesome !

don´t work on BES ....

Is this better than Trillian?

BigNL

Just chatting. Unfortunately, no skype calling.

I saw this yesterday on their site and had a short conversion with them via twiiter. They are looking for feedback if anyone want to give any.

I'm going to try this out. I've currently got Beejive, of which I paid for a transferable license - has anyone that tried this compared this to Beejive yet?

Finally some good looking piece of im there. Installed and started up flawlessly. Added icq/aim and skype, both worked fine (even group conversations in skype worked for me).

In my point of view a decent beta.

But everytime there's space for improvement.
-Integration in native inbox.
-WiFi only will not do the trick. (BIS, BES, PUSH? O.O)
-Skype calls would be awesome
-Options to at least adjust the notification led color
(no idea why they took blue^^)
-Would be great to be able to close to ui part completely
(shutdown closes everything, but close only moves it to the back.
-Did anybody find an option to delete an account?
-Contact "mergeing" would be nice to have.

2 make ppl jealous. Looks awesome on my shiny new 9810^^ but some minor layout ui bugs^^

And Twitter?
Always missing something in these IM clients..........

Aero247

It would be nice if this worked for PB but it doesn't. It just downloads the .jad and does nothing with it.

roninksb

I really like the UI of this program.

Just wishing that BBM will be able to manage all major IM clients.
