This native, highly customizable iPhone app supports AIM®/iChat®/MobileMe®, MSN®/Windows Live®, Yahoo!®, MySpace, GoogleTalk®, ICQ®, & Jabber, allowing users to access all of their IM clients from one user-friendly interface.

These key new features include:
-- Photo transfer: This new feature enables you to send photos directly within the body of your IM, bringing you both high photo quality and great ease of use. -- Voice notes: Truly personalize your IM experience by adding voice to the equation via a smooth, direct transfer. -- Full integration with iPhone's address book: Now you can link your buddies directly to your phone contact list, making it easier than ever to keep in touch. -- Extensive file support: Now more than ever, your iPhone can be a great business tool as you can easily receive and review different file types, including most image, audio, and video files, PDFs, Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, and PowerPoint documents. -- Configurable sounds when sending and receiving IMs: Now you can choose to use our default sounds when you send or receive an IM, or use the AIM or Yahoo! sounds. -- A truly native experience: BeejiveIM has the complete look and feel of native iPhone apps, offering you the iPhone's great degree of customizability in look and feel so that you can seamlessly integrate instant messaging into your overall iPhone experience.
"We created BeejiveIM to address the lack of reliable, user-friendly instant messaging applications available to mobile users. The fact that we were widely viewed as the top social networking app of 2008 demonstrates what a need there was for such a service," said Kai Yu, founder and CEO, Beejive. "Now, with BeejiveIM 2.0 we are able to offer iPhone users a rich collaboration platform, where they can do everything from exchange their favorite MP3s to get a colleague a needed PDF in seconds flat. We are excited to see what our BeejiveIM community will accomplish with these new tools."
