Shape Services Ltd is looking for Beta testers for their IM+ messaging solution which is already available for several platforms and is now ported to the Microsoft Pocket PC platform. Shape Services LTd has therefore announced a Beta Tester request on the PPCW.Net Forum.

IM+ is a complete Instant Messaging solution which supports MSN Messenger, ICQ, AOLMessenger, Yahoo! and Jabber.

With IM+ you can communicate using encrypted messages, directly from your PC as well as from your mobile device, in real-time, cost-saving, within a group conference and many other features

The main IM+ features are:

  • You have one client for several services :ICQ, AOL Messenger, MSN Messenger, Yahoo! (only in IM+ v. 3.0) and Jabber (not available in IM+ for Nokia 7650/3650 yet).
  • File transfer through ICQ and AOL with other IM+ Clients. Receive files from MSN-Software users (for IM+ v.2.18 for Nokia 7650 and IM+ v.2 for Win32 only. File transfer is not available on IM+ for Sony Ericsson P800).
  • IM+ makes direct connection to the supported services, without any "gate" in the middle. It's very important, because it means that you connected to your favourite services as a full rights user. So, your connection will never be blocked out because of some "difficulties" between target service and the "gate" operator!
  • Secure messaging with reliable crypto protection. (Not available in IM+ for Nokia 7650/3650 yet).
  • IM+ keeps the contact list information on the respective servers. So, IM+ and your convenient desktop client always use just the same contact list. You can add new user in your contact list with IM+ and you will see this user on next connection with your desktop client.
  • Simultaneous connection to all selected systems.
  • Full presence status support.
  • Group conference function for Jabber, which is very useful especially for corporate users (nNot available in IM+ for Nokia 7650/3650 yet).
  • Authorization for presence status subscription.
  • Sound alerts for incoming messages and contacts coming online (in P800 version also vibra-alerts available).

IM+ for Nokia 92x0 and 7650/3650 is commercial software. IM+ for PCs can download for free.

If you are interested in testing this interesting messaging solution, see the Forum for more details. A Microsoft Smartphone version isn't announced so far. :-(

Cheers ~ Arne
