Do you remember the days when it was impossible to get an instant messenger for BlackBerry since there were no clients? I remember looking for one for my 7230 back in the day. The best I got that year was Webmessenger.
Well, the tables have turned since and now we have an overabundance of IM applications for the BlackBerry. This latest is from Mundu and seems to be pretty cool for a commercial app. Especially since it only costs $11 for life. There is a 5-day trial, so if you’re unhappy with your current IM app, it can’t hurt to try this one out. I don’t think this is in the same league as Jivetalk and IM+, but who am I to judge.
You can pick up the application at this link in the store. Or if you want to download the trial just go to this link from your Berry and click the try button.
