Beejive has released a new beta of their all-in-one IM client. Beta 1.9.7 is geared toward OS 5.0 users, and has a bunch of updated features. Beejive was kind of shaky on some 5.0 builds, so the new beta hopes to get closer to a fully working version. Features include:
- file transfers via link, you can now transfer files to buddies on all IM accounts.
- email push when app running in background (see preferences in app).
- send voice notes
- send GPS location (if supported by phone)
- new chat styles & background images
- new buddy list layouts
- improved battery life
- overall UI redesign
- facebook IM
- various other bug fixes & enhancements
You can give it a go if you've been having issues with the application on 5.0. Download links and support are available from the Beejive forums.
