    Now that they both have Push and cost $10, I am deciding which to buy. I obviously don't wanna buy both either. Which one do you prefer and why? What are some of the key features of the two? Thanks

    Beejive IM by leaps an bounds, i have both legally. IM+ doesn't let you change your own display picture or display name from the App, it just uses the last display name you used when you last logged in, where as beejive lets you do it for all IM protocols.

    Also a lot of people have problems with IM+ and connecting. I find when going back into the app after it has been closed, beejive re-connects a lot faster, and the entire interface is a lot smoother. Beejive also connects a lot quicker.

    Beejive is better, its faster, and has more features, such as wallpapers, and changing display pictures. the interface is also a lot cleaner in my opinion, and looks nicer.

    I kinda liked IM. It was simple and effective. And a few of the features of Beejive kinda get in my way, like closing a convo. Why do you have to click the - sign and delete just to close to a convo.

    And beejive seems a little slower then IM.

    I like IM+.

    And you can get IM+ lite and save yourself 10$.
    The only difference is that IM+ lite has 1 add at the top.
