    Works great for me too; but maybe Beejive would work better for you.

    You should contact the developer and ask them if they're working on a WebOS version.

    I don't see how the webos implementation is any different from a normal client. In fact it's better seeing as integrated it is into the platform.

    The included AIM app with the Pre is ok but gets very limited, and long conversations are annoying with the default notification sound. I can't wait till I can add custom sounds for IM and email

    I don't particularly want a separate app. Half the usefulness of "Synergy" is that I don't have to login to a bunch of separate places and leave applications open--the software pulls all my messages into the same view, I send my responses, and it routes them to wherever they came from.

    Letting me see my online AIM contacts through Google like Gmail does would be much more useful, and keep my contacts manageable.

    I like the implementation of AIM, it seems just like an IM window on the desktop...especially with the separate window tweak, then you can have multiple conversations and just swipe to each one

    Is there an update to the AIM app that doesn't completely drain the battery?

    If I have AIM running, my battery doesn't make it more than 12 hours which makes the app almost unusable for me.

    Because I'm away from the house sometimes for more than 12 hours at a time?

    And 12 hours is stretching it with AIM anyways -- I'll test it out tonight and see how long it stays up, I suspect it will completely drain the battery within 6-7 hours.

    I can understand the battery draining when talking on the phone, checking email constantly, browsing the web, etc... But when the phone isn't being talked on, and email isn't being checked, the AIM application should not be near as big a battery drain as it is -- my old Treo 700wx could run an AIM app with zero issues and keep charged 12+ hours easy.

    I understand what some are saying in regards to it is a "battery intensive" phone -- but a phone that you can't grab off the charger at noon and have it not die before you make it back home late that night has a major, major design flaw.

    You must be new to the current market of smartphones, especially touchscreen ones. With stock batteries, they all die rather quickly.

    Again, I could talk on the phone, browse the web and have an AIM client running the entire time with my Treo 700wx and it could go 12+ hours before conking out.

    There is some kind of design flaw with the AIM app, it isn't that intensive a piece of software.

    You're absolutely right there's a problem. Your 700wx ran it fine in a day, and my Blackberry Tour could run AIM for a week before the battery died.

    One of two things should be happening:
    1) Palm should be implementing AIM through a push & compression server
    2) Palm should partner with AIM to have an SMS standby feature like VeriChat used to have, so you could stay signed in without using your battery up.

    Unfortunately I'd venture to say that neither one of those are going to happen.

    This is an outright lie, or at best, a horrible case of rationalizing on the part of Pre users.

    There is no new smart phone that is as badly limited by a battery as the Pre is. AIM is almost to the point of unusability unless you've got perfect signal coverage and do almost nothing else with the Pre while it's connected.
