Thread: beejive im (+backgrounder)?
01-13-2009, 05:11 PM #1beejive im (+backgrounder)?
ok so quite hesitant to get beejive im because of the price and the fact that i will probably never use file transfer except for an occasional picture
ive also read that it completely closes when u close the application and doesnt update but notifies you through push email (which i dont have)
plenty of reasons not to get it
but i was curios to know if backgrounder would allow beejive to run in the background and stay open even when the screen is off, and make a sound/have a unread messages icon on the beejive icon
because (even with the $18.99 aus price) the only thing stopping me from getting it is the fact that it doesnt stay open
could someone with it, give it a go and post results. or state the obvious if u know it wont work like that

Im not sure about australias carriers, but with AT&T you can set the email Beejive pushes to as your 10 digit number at att.net or something and youll get texts alerting you of new im's received while the app is closed (practically push if you have unlimited texts), you could check to see if your carrier does that, they probably doiLive an iLife

thanks guys, just bought it
unfortunatly, dont have unlimited texts, so im assuming it costs the normal 15 cents for them to text you everytime i get an im(which might become expensive lol) and dont really want email inbox spammed up that bad
so will give just have to backgrounder a go

Yeah, until Apple releases push, Beejive and tons of other apps will only work when opened.
THAT SAID, go to your Settings app and check the Beejive options there. You probably want to change the stay online setting to something higher. Beejive can keep you online for up to 24 hours so even if the app is closed you will be receiving messages, just need to re-open the app to get them.

It would be awesome if someone made a special code for beejive to where you can set it to automatically always background when closed.If I helped you dont be afraid to click thanks

You can do that, actually.
You can set Backgrounder to run automatically when certain programs run.
For instance, Beejive to always use Backgrounder when closing it.
I forgot how, it has to do with editing a plist file in the Backgrounder folder.
I believe there's more info on their googlecode site.
