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. :-(
