    So for IM clients, a company would have to setup a back-end server that would send an alert to apple when you get an IM and your IM app is shut down. Then apple will send this to your iPhone. On your iPhone you will see a message that you have a new IM (or something similar) and then if you want you can open the app to read it. This will be for any app (myspace, facebook etc) that uses apples "push" API
    Yeah what a fail idea. Apple's server traffic is going to increase exponentially... Also, if the concern is battery life, shouldn't it be up to be end user to allow background processes?

    Anyway, it's just another excuse for Apple to get their way, heh.

    Solution. You have to put your information into the palringo section of the settings app. Like the actual iPhone settings app, not in the palringo program. Not really very intuitive.

    Im not impressed at all really. No option to keep you logged in when you hit home, no buddy icons etc...

    Mobile chat will own this.

    'FRING' was the best app IMO for messaging service. Loved it on my 1st gen iPhone, runs in the background too. Their website says they are working on a 2.xx version. I'll be waiting for that one. Keep in mind, with Palringo, your passords/info has to go through their server, which brings up a huge security issue.

    I won't be trying it

    Need some iPhone friends. I've been using the App on my AT&T tilt. I love it. The one program at a time rule is BS. I think it should be up to us to have battery life issues. I called Apple today and all they said was to go to Apple.com and go to the forums sections and request that feature. We should all do it, hopefully next update it'll be included.

    Apple already is coming with a better solution than background processes. Wait a little bit more for push functionality and apps will be able to run indefinitely without killing your battery.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    In Sept. The 2.1 firmware is supposed to add push for IM programs such as AIM, Yahoo so forth. So app technically wouldn't be running in the background. But the message sent to an Apple Server and than Instantly "Pushed" to your phone like MobileMe.
