    I have been using Trillian beta for android with good results. I just wished it had Skype chat.

    I tried IM+ and IMO yesterday, but they seem to log out or not push if you exit out of the app or your screen goes to sleep. I was really hoping both worked since they both have Skype chat with all the others.

    What are you using?

    LOL! Good one!

    I wondered about BeeJive.....although I didn't wanna spend the $10 at first, although I could get a refund if need be? Thoughts on why you like it? I wonder if it's much better than Trillian?

    I started out using it on the iphone and now use it on android....to me it works very well, has alot of very nice features, handles all/any IM networks. And the UI is beautiful.

    All in all, it think it outperforms the other apps with features and UI.

    Try it, you can always get a refund within 24.

    I use eBuddy. I absolutely love it. Best one so far that I've seen that can handle Facebook chat along with all the others.

    I use Meebo but that's only because I use the PC client at work and already had a login.

    I've only tried:
    - eBuddy
    - Meebo
    - Trillian (beta)

    So far, eBuddy has been the most reliable as far as keeping me signed-in and not FCing. Supports all major IM networks (including Facebook).

    Once Trillian comes out of Beta, though, it will be my choice. The UI was much better and faster.

    I'm using Trillian. I didn't really try any of the others since Trillian felt so right after I installed it.

    Don't know about the others, but in Trillian you can set it to save battery life by querying the servers less. Doesn't kill my battery with all day use though and I don't have that option set. I rarely chat however.

    eBuddy. Only problem I have with it is I can't get the LED to work anymore.

    And LOL at Dos Equis.

    eBuddy does up to 15 minutes if you don't tell it to poll constantly.
