    Chatter is amazing, and the developer support is second to none. In fact, one issue I found with it and how my email server works, within I think 2 days he had a beta that implemented the change. I also considered Blackberry the "goto" gizmo for email, but after seeing Chatter, I pity those on the "crackberry". Note I use an IMAP server, I haven't tried Pop (considering using it with Gmail tho)

    Chatter conflicts with Handmark Express. I use Snappermail.
    I can confirm this conflict, however the cause is within Express. I have several other apps that need access to the Internet (Verichat, 4Cast, Agendus, Xiino/Blazer). The only app that has trouble with net access is Express. Hopefully they'll fix it (I've reported it to them).

    I dont consider that battery drain.
    You cant get something for nothing.

    Would you consider running Ptunes all day and not expect to take a hit in battery? Would that be considered battery drain or just normal usage?

    I feel Chatter balances the benefits with how much juice it uses to get them.

    And this is just another benefit of the program. Marc adjusts the program depending on if you have GSM or CDMA. Because CDMA users (in general) have data usage that tends to drain the battery more, he put in the efficient sync to even it out.

    If you want up to the second updates (as far as having the email show that you have read it/forwarded it/deleted it) then leave efficient sync off. If you don't care too much about that, then turn it on. If the battery drain still bothers you, you can qsync every XX minutes and keep your data usage to a minimum. Chatter is about choices and Marc gets most of his input from his devoted following.

    Yeah, it's progressively gotten more expensive with every new release. However, many of us bought it when it was almost half the price!

    I haven't had time to set it all the way up with all my accounts yet, but the interface is kinda drab and boring don't ya' think? I get a lot of SMS messages and Chatter took over the mail button I use to launch my messages. I know I can probably re-assign it. Is there any skins or anything avalible for it to make it look more interesting? Oh, I also have Express installed and I haven't had any issues since yesterday when I installed the Chatter trial version.
    IT'S NOT A DAMN BLACKBERRY!....

    I have an unlocked GSM (not CDMA) and battery drain with the mighty Chatter was noticeable, and directly impacted the amount of functional time I had on the road without having to constantly car-charge or AC-charge my Treo. I'd like to go back to Chatter for business purposes, but would probably have to drop MP3/streaming or GPS/bluetooth usage.

    With all due respect, it's an awesome app., but the battery drain issue seems to still be glossed over here and on the Chatter developer forum. Sorry.

    I have a CDMA (Sprint) phone, and don't really have battery problems with Chatter. 3 IMAP boxes always connected, a fouth one QuickSyncing a few times a day. Drain isn't bad.

    Talking on the phone drains it far more than Chatter ever will.

    Yet another vote for Chatter. It's an amazing app (coming from a loyal Snapper user). I've never seen an app be updated so frequently. Marc (the developer) updates Chatter literally every day. Incredible.

    to get your sms message button back: prefs>buttons

    I'm like you, I dont care for chatter's interface, so I mainly use it for it's push capabilities, & pop-up notifications... I still prefer the look of versamail, so I still use it for most of my replying, and composing. I guess I'm one of the lucky ones that versamail runs stable on my device.

    Nothing to be sorry about. When you say you have significant battery drain...can you quantify it? How much per hour? Maybe there is something causing it?

    Yeah until Marc decides to trash it like he did with his IM program. I bought it used it had problems with it and all of a sudden 6 months later support gone, product gone, emails ignored about the product etc... I'd never buy another product from this developer i wasted 20 bucks with him already! Kudos to him for ripping me off.

    Not sure what happened, but that doesn't sound like Marc.

    Anyway, another happy Chatter user, and I only QSync as needed and don't use Push at all. Still a great program and much better than snapper.

    I haven't quantified the battery usage. It just a noticeable jump in battery consumption with Chatter installed. Even with 'reduced' settings for retrieval, etc.

    I know what's causing it - it's Chatter causing the extra consumption!

    I hate to be picky about this issue, but I'm a relatively heavy 'road user' and need to stretch out the amount of time I'm using the unit on the road without having to constantly plug it in to recharge or swap batteries.

    I will install the latest version (demo) and check the battery consumption vs. what I'm used to.

    Thanks,
