IM+ All in One Messenger Updated with Themes and Improved Multichat


Shape Services let us know that they have updated IM+ All in One Messenger for BlackBerry to version 8.5. IM+ is one of the best aggregate IM clients that makes you wish RIM would build something similar natively. Currently, RIM has a variety of first party IM clients that are frustrating to use individually. Also, IM is an integral part of the device and communication, and first party use would make it free, while 3rd party developers have to pay a lot for the IM client license (which drives up the price significantly).

The latest version of IM+ features a completely new redesigned user interface with new themes, improved multichat for MSN and Skype, and convenient history review for all conversations.

You can download IM+ from the store for $39.95 (high price is due to quality and license use). It seems as though the update isn’t available in App World yet as the Desktop version reads 08.04 and the App World client reads version 7.0. Oh, App World…
