eBuddy launches yet another BlackBerry IM

BlackBerry Messenger, gTalk, Yahoo Messenger, AIM… Do we really need another IM app for BlackBerry? Considering how many texts the BlackBerry Nation sends out in a month, I guess the answer is yes.

eBuddy (formerly e-messenger) has launched a beta version of there IM client, which allows you to sink Windows Live, Yahoo! and AIM accounts. Go to get.ebuddy.com/beta to download the free app and tell us what you think. Expect an all encompassing IM review coming from the ‘Cool soon.

I have used the eBuddy mobile website for awhile now and liked it, so I downloaded this yesterday and am giving it a shakedown.
Although it’s a little slow logging you in, the interface is good and seems to work well for a beta. I am thinking that this is going to work well for me!

Tried it last night.

Here’s my trials of it:

7:35pm: Download eBuddy OTA.

7:38pm: During setup, we somehow turned on the “block language”. Now we can’t read any of the menus. Need to fix.

7:43pm: Can’t figure out how to navigate with boxes. Uninstalling and reinstalling.

7:48pm: Re-Downloading.

7:51pm: Setting back up. Choose English this time!

7:52pm: Enter eBuddy screen-name or register for account. (We registered online while we were waiting on the re-install so we skip).

7:53p: Add AOL account and log in.

7:54: Testing

7:59: Close. Options. Advanced Options. Applications. eBuddy. Delete. Yes.

On the rank ladder, it falls above Palringo (obviously) and just barely ahead of Ramble.

JiveTalk or IM+ need to get on it and release a new version. They are the kings.
