Every heard of eBuddy? It’s the free iPhone app that lets you use Facebook Chat, AIM, ICQ, GTalk, MSN Messenger, and Yahoo! Messenger and gives you push notifications for all.
Sounds like the best thing ever, right? Well, the app does a lot of things right, but it does have its shortcomings. First of all, some of the nice things include the fact that it pulls your Facebook and AIM groups. So if you’re like me and organize everything, it’s a welcome feature. The chatting portion of the app is very fluid and you can see when your counterpart is typing. Super sexy.
The app has a huge downfall, however. It automatically signs you out of eBuddy immediately, after 5 minutes, 10, or 30 minutes…. but you can’t simply stay logged in, like AIM does for 24hrs. So even if you choose the 30 minute option, you’ll be logged out and receive no notifications. Kind of silly to have to launch the app every 30 minutes.
Regardless, it’s a step in the right direction and it’s free. It’s got a nice built-in “tell us what you think” section with a form for you to fill out. Make sure to tell them you want longer Online times!
