    Default Beejive Updated to 2.0 - Send and Receive Pics/Audio/More


    During Macworld Beejive released an update to their IM app which caught my attention. Until last week I have mostly avoided any IM applications on the iPhone -- I'm always recieveing files and pictures via IM and not being able to do that on the iPhone has always been annoying. The Beejive IM 2.0 update solved the problem by incorporating send/receive of various file types including pics and audio. It isn't MMS but if you and your friends are always on IM it's a very good alternative. You can even send and receive between iPhones that have Beejive IM installed!

    Playing around a bit revealed that the menus are intuitive for sending and and receiving files. To send just tap the top bar during a conversation once. After you have tapped a menu slides down with various options including buttons to send photos and voice notes. The photos option allows you to either take a picture or select one out of your photo library. Select the voice note feature and the phone automatically starts recording a voice note. You can stop and play back the voice note before you send.



    After you have selected and sent your picture / voice note it is quickly inserted in the conversation for whomever you are chatting with to view. The image/audio is neatly inserted directly in-line the conversation with a little thumbnail. If for some reason you want to check what you sent just tap the arrow next to it with in the conversation to view.



    The update also allows you to receive and view many files types on your iPhone including most image, audio, video files, PDFs, Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, and Powerpoint documents. They appear in-line and you just tap on them to open and view. What's better is that after you have received files you can forward on to to other people in you IM contact lists easily (why is there no forward of text messages in the iPhone SMS app? come on Apple hire Beejive to do things right or something).

    Of course Beejive IM 2.0 supports many IM protocols including AIM, Google Talk, ICQ, Jabber, MSN/Live, Myspace IM, and Yahoo messenger just like the previous version. The sounds and menus are very macish and during testing all day today I have yet to make Beejive crash.

    If you want (in my opinion) the best IM client for the iPhone Beejives 2.0 update makes it the hands down winner. Price $15.99 via the AppStore.

    Yes, you're a PC. But you come with Vista, which is like a chick with herpes.

    I've been messing around with this new update for a few days now and i have to say its pretty sweet.. also when you send a picture or file to other im users it comes up as a link, but if you go into iphone settings and go to beejive you can change the send file from Post Link to Direct send preferred and when you send your file to a friend it automatically downloads once they okay the file transfer

    $16 to do instant messaging, I didn't like instant messaging when it was free. Video messaging I might consider, for under $16

    $16 bucks you've got to be kidding!
    I don't drink kool-Aid, I don't join cults.
    This is why I break out in cold sweat going to Apple retail store.

    Well beejive is worth the money. All we need now is a way to have the iPhone alert us when we close the app, that we have an im..I know it's up to apple so we'll just wait on that...

    If you're asking if it has it, yes. All windows (chat, buddy list, etc) flip to landscape so you can use it either way and switch on the fly. There isn't a way to "lock" orientation yet that I know of though.

    ive been using this app since it wasnt even an app. It was an internet app and its the best IM application out there. It kills Palringo and any other chat app because it actually keeps you signed ON! and u can stay logged on until whenever u like. It has great features and the latest update with the video, and voice messaging made it even better. Landscape works great and this app brings no problems to me whatsoever. ITS WORTH THE $16 TRUST ME!

    The webapp version of Beejive is still around, though won't keep you online as long as the actual app.
