    One of BBM's biggest draws is security. How secure is Hookt compared to BBM?

    Really don't know the answer although Hookt responded that it was secure.
    I'll phrase the question in another way. How secure can BBM be if its accessible by these cross platform messenger applications?
    I would think that RIM will screen any app that will be downloadable via their App Word. That in itself would give me some peace of mind.

    Great point about cross platform BBM. We'll just have to keep digging, that has to be part of the package of any messageing system these days with a 007 behind every tree!

    Does Hookt provide a standardized IM gateway protocol like XMPP to other services/providers, or is it yet another proprietary instant messaging silo like iMessage, BlackBerry Messenger, AIM, ICQ, MSN, and so forth?

    Nice to see someone come and answer directly. Now I'm tempted to try it.

    Reminds me of the Bellshare days.

    Good times.....good times.

    Grrrr, don't like it hanging out in notifications.
    I am particular about that. Uninstalled until its removed. I don't need running apparently showing up when I pull down.
