    I am just trying to figure out the reasoning behind charging people for AIM and Palringo and the other apps..

    I just refuse to believe people are going to charge for features that are free to them through Apple's API.

    That's like a DEV charging us a fee to bring up the keyboard on the Storm so you can type in their app..that's just downright dumb.

    I hear you, on a side note push notification (3 day feature switched on) for IM+ works great! I also haven't noticed a battery drop as well.

    I have Palringo now, which was just updated but still no Push.

    How is Beejive vs IM+ ?

    Are they TRUELY worth the $$?

    Well Beejive is $9.99 and IM+ is 5.99, I cannot speak for Beejive but hear good reviews. I am completely happy with IM+, works as advertised.

    I use Beejive , and believe it is worth every penny , it truly is like using an IM client on your desktop , its instant and so is the push , the set up and layout is perfect , and to have every chat client put into one and pushing its amazing.... Now i cant speak for IM+ but i can say Beejive is worth 10

    i was actually thinking the same thing yesterday when i purchased im+. i do think that push is going to become a way to distinguish the "lite" version from the full verison. i also agree that its kinda messed up on the devleopers side to do this. i got the palringo update last night, and cant remember if it was palringo lite or not before the upgrade. i didnt think it was listed as lite.

    i ended up getting im + and have been very pleased so far. i was also wondering about the whole leaving it on for 3 days and the battery life, so i lowered it to one day just to see how it does. i cant see how that would matter, but i'm kinda weird and ocd that way.
