Windows Live Messenger
Integrate Windows Live Messenger into your BlackBerry with this free application
Windows Live Messenger Review
by on April 30, 2010
The BlackBerry platform is all about communication, so it makes perfect sense to add one of the most popular instant messaging platforms in the world to the mix.
It was surprising that RIM developed the app, considering that Windows Live Messenger competes directly with its own BlackBerry Messenger.
But it’s a good application, although it can only be accessed by starting a new IM in the messaging inbox – we would have liked to see it as a standalone application.
You get pretty much all the basic functionality of the PC client, with the ability to set online status, check our who’s online and their profiles, and add in those smiley emoticon things the kids love so much these days.
Conversations appear in the message inbox and when you receive an update it triggers the notification light as the application is tightly integrated into the BB platform.
However, you can’t sign into more than one place at once, meaning that despite setting it to auto sign-in, you’ll constantly have to keep restarting the application if you use WLM on your PC.
