    So I found an application on cydia that lets you run your instant message applications in the background. The only problem is the application does not tell you when you've been messaged when it's minimized. Someone want to try and develop a patch that allows it to do that? We'd essentially have push notification then.

    Just download backgrounder from Cydia. Then open your instant messaging app hold down on the home button for a few seconds, then a message will come up saying "Backgrounding Enabled" then let go of the home button and it'll be running in the background. This works really well with Textfree Unlimited.

    Ya i use backgrounder with AIM and you can set it to vibrate and/or make a noise when you receive a message.

    BeejiveIM uses the Push feature and can send you an email to alert you when a message is received. But I agree, we need a better background hooked notifier for IMs, Twitters etc... I was hoping they'd put something like this into OS 3.0.

    It does, I have the app myself...
    Go into the StatusNotifier application and change the IM switch to ON.
    Works fine for Beejive anyway.

    status notifier doesn't work with IM+

    backgrounder seems to work just fine though
