    Hi. I'm working on a MSN compatible messenger and looking for beta testers to test the pre-release version.

    The purpose of this software is to provide a non subscription based solution, that does not use server side proxy (proxy based solutions require that your ID and password to be given to a third party). So it's a good alternative to Verichat, Causerie, Chatopus etc which are based on those models.

    The standard software does not include options such as background running, file sending etc. One good thing about this is it will be more battery life friendly and often make the phone more stable (less reboot due to background conflicts), and less prone to viruses. Of course, all those features are also very nice for users who want them, so i'm thinking of creating a separate version with those features.

    I think most Treo users would want to keep all features currently included in Verichat and Causerie. Why? because we always want more and more new things. I think if we were PDA users probably we wouldn't care about running in the background or doing file transfer because PDAs don't have an always on connection. I've been using Verichat for more than 3 years and at the beginning they were charging a yearly fee with the option to buy unlimited usage. Now they don't have the unlimited usage account plus now they want to charge more and more for new features. I think you are in the right place if you can compete with them at a lower price. Let me know if you want me to beta test. Send me an IM or email me BeLion007 @ aol.com Make sure you include TreoCentral on the topic so I know it's you.

    Thanks

    I'd beta test your solution either way, but I doubt I'd buy it if it couldn't run in the background. I wouldn't mind if it were a "selectable" option.

    I just got my first Treo a little while ago and have had no experiences with any of the other available Messenger apps. I'll be getting my phone service in a week, but so far the Treo is used as a PDA only. I only use MSN and this will be perfect. I can provide a testing perspective from a new Treo user point of view who has never done any mobile messenging. Until I read your post, I didn't even know the other apps required a subscription. I'll shoot you email when I'm back home with access to my email. Hope you will accept me as a beta tester.
