    IM+ vs. JiveTalk - Opinions?

    Advertisement



    A while back, I purchased IM+. This program worked beautifully. Now, I've updated to the most recent version of the program. Nothing but crashes all the time. I've sent in a support request and we'll see what Shape Services tells me.

    In the meantime, I've been trying out JiveTalk, and had no trouble with it at all.

    Granted that I've already paid $50 for IM+, I'm wondering if I should go ahead and spend the $30 for JiveTalk as well. I probably will - it's only $30. And there's any number of things I'd piss away $30 on! LOL

    I'm interested in knowing others' opinions regarding their experiences with both programs.

    Wow, how did I miss that? Seems JiveTalk is the clear winner.

    Oh well, it's only another $30. Lord knows what else I'd probably piss $30 away on! haha

    Sorry about last post.
    Hi jlatessa
    I've been having crashes with the latest version too (IM+ 5.2). 5.1 didn't have the problem and was very stable. Please let me know if you get something from Shapeservices.

    Thanks

    Ok jivetalk is definately better plus its only 19.95 for one blackberry and 30 if you want to use it on multiple blackberrys that you might own in the future. Its also very stabe and works well.

    I wrote a review about it on my website.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com. I have IM+ and hold multiple conversations with relatives and friends all over the world each day. Works well although sometimes I have to reboot the translator as it doesn't auto connect I need for German. Cannot comment on jivetalk. Have I missed something better?
