Instango 2.0 Now Available For BlackBerry!

One of the best things about our beloved BlackBerry devices is the multitude of options available for communications while using them. Everything from MSN, Google Talk, right down to ICQ (does anyone even use that any more?!). The only problem with all of these options, especially if you are a user of several messaging platforms, is that it means having to open numerous applications all at once on your device, which becomes a pain in the butt. Instango looks to be able to solve this problem for us BlackBerry users and gives us a convergance of those applications and much more.

Their newly updated version of Instango is vastly improved upon the previous versions and brings a ton of new features to the table as well. They have listened to the community and brought us the following with their latest update:
  • Complete rewrite of the user interface
  • Multiple Account support (ie: 2 AIM, 1 MSN Accnt.)
  • WiFi Support
  • Improved battery cosumption when running the app
  • Better usage of data compression,saving on data usage
  • Message list integration on OS 4.6
  • Many, Many Bugfixes

Having used this application at its first launch, I can say this version is a great improvement over what it was and well worth a look.

For a further peek into the application, head on over to the features page and have a look. The services expand well beyond just IM integration all the way to now using Instango as an RSS reader and sending voice messages, files and pictures.

Instango 2.0 Now Available For BlackBerry!


My BlackBerry Bold does most of this right to my inbox (keeps track of active conversations).

What does this third party app bring to the table that isn't already being provided by BlackBerry?

I downloaded this application the last time it was on here and deleted it because of the lag time...

Re-downloaded it today and have already deleted it....IMO JiveTalk works well, it doesn't have as many features, but it's soooo much quicker and easier to navigate through.

I have been using the beta of Instango on my Bold. Just tried Jivetalk recently. I like Instango better because navigation feels way more intuitive to me than Jivetalk. It probably comes down to what one has been using first and got used to.

This is awesome. I had downloaded and was using the trial version of Beejive Jivetalk. It was great and I was about to pay up the $19.99 for it even though I really didn't want to. IMing is something that is important to me with keeping up with friends. This is a very good FREE alternative. Saved me $19.99 for now.

I bought Jivetalk a while I'm not quick to get rid of it. I am tho willing to try something far the app is pretty cool and def has more features than jivetalk. Only time will tell which stays on phone.

Downloaded this app; after registering and trying to sign in I got a java.nullpointerexception error. After that no matter how many times I delete and reinstall can't get it to open the app. I'm running a 9630 with os5.0.0.230.

I have the beejive app, but doesn't support QQ messenger. If anyone knows an app that has QQ messenger letting me know would be awesome!
