    Well, since discovering the backgrounder app in cydia, i can now run my instant messenger (currently beejive) in the background. This is great and all, except the only notification for a new message is a single tone and a vibrate, which can easily be missed, or go unnoticed

    Are there any IM apps that put a taskbar notification when you have a new message?

    I'm pretty sure Apple doesn't allow it. I have a question though. Does Beejive update the badge too?

    I do not think so. You just get an email alerting you that it is there. It will not get them on the badge until apple releases the push for all apps.

    This is how it works right?

    From my experience Beejive does have a badge when it gets a new message. Even when its running in the background. It works just like Agile Messenger now, when you get a new message, it shows a badge.

    Well, now I can confirm that Palringo does update the badge, and it's really efficient!
