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.

    link no good?

    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!

    Link now fixed. Blame lazy blogging.

    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.

    Odd. When clicking on the get.ebuddy.com link on my pc, i see blackberry as an option for the brand of phone. when i go to the link on my BB, the option for BB is not there. Starts with Alcatel then HTC. What happened to the BB option?

    Nevermind..maybe if i typed BETA at the end of the URL, you wouldnt have had to read my PEBCAK error.

    PC or BB, I can’t get it to install. Even tried hosting it myself, and I get an error every time. I use Jivetalk now, but was looking for something that was more consistent. From what others said, it doesn’t sound like it’s quite ready. Palringo even kinda sux.
