Instant messaging has always been popular for the iPhone. Just recently, the popular all-in-one instant messaging app – Beejive updated to 2.0 with some new exciting features. Like before the update, Beejive has always allowed users to connect with many different IM services including AIM, Google Talk, ICQ, Jabber, MSN / Live, Myspace IM and Yahoo messenger.

But with this new update, Beejive now offers much more:

  • Ability to send photos directly from your iPhone and have them show up in-line with the body of the chat. This goes both sides, as you can also view received photos.
  • Record and send voice notes to your buddies.
  • Receive and view other files such as images, documents (Word, PDF), Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, audio and video clips. Plus, once you receive some file, you can forward it to some other contact.
  • More customization – you can change the sounds for incoming/outgoing messages.

All this sounds brilliant, but unfortunately BeejiveIM 2.0 will cost $15.99! This is much more than many would expect to pay especially now that quite a number of other IM apps are free! You can check it out on iTunes directly via this link.

Here are some screenshots of the new update:

    Don’t think they thought that far ahead. Unless the updates are free they should have set it up around 4.59 then sold updates for .99 each.
