UPDATE: The sale is valid until January 1st from what we are hearing.
BeeJiveIM is a pretty popular IM client for BlackBerry which combines all of your IM accounts into one application along with extras like Facebook Chat and Twitter. Bla1ze spotted their announcement of their much awaited version 2.0 which has been released today with a whole slew of new features.
BeeJive is having a one day sale in honor of the update with device licenses going for $9.95 and user licenses going for $14.95. You really should just get the user license since the device license means you will have to fork over more money when you upgrade devices. I am going to stick with the native RIM clients myself but BeeJive keeps on getting better.
You can find the trial and buy options on BeeJive’s website at this link or read about the new features below:
- Facebook chat: Chat with your Facebook friends while on the go, and see a record of your chats on facebook.com.
- Clickable Twitter usernames: Click on a Twitter username in a chat to launch Twitter.
- Refined and responsive UI: Take advantage of BeejiveIM’s custom-written user interface, offering speedy and responsive controls and a modern look-and-feel.
- Voice notes: Instantly record and send voice messages to your IM contacts. Voice notes are perfect for on-the-go chatting, such as when you are walking down the street or need to get information to someone quickly and don’t have time to type.
- GPS location: Send your current GPS location with a link to Google Maps, taking advantage of your BlackBerry’s location features and adding a new location-aware element to your chats.
