The SHAPE Services team let me know they’ve updated their IM+ app for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet to version 1.3.1. We haven’t mentioned this app since its launch, so here’s a reminder of its features:
Chat in Windows Live Messenger/MSN, Skype, Facebook, Google Talk, Yahoo!, AOL/AIM/iChat, ICQ, Jabber and MySpace in one application. IM+ supports multiple accounts per service and stores chat history for each conversation on device. Both landscape and portrait screen orientations are supported.
Changes from and including version 1.3 include:
- File transfer support (images, audio/video files, documents)
- Chat history grouped by date
- Option to hide “Offline contacts” group
- Swipe to open keyboard
- Optimization of memory usage
- Added “Show Keyboard” button
