Im+ has myspace messenger and uses more battery. That's the difference. As for the price, iono why its so expensive, seeing that all those apps are free on the pc
Jivetalk also does MySpace IM, as well as AIM, MSN/Live, Yahoo, GoogleTalk, ICQ and Jabber.
I've been using it for months - excellent product, very usable, very reliable, and a good price.
Re: "built in messenger" - if you have the native clients that talk over a data connection, that's great. But if you're using OZ, and talking over SMS, then you need to be aware of the potential cost (if you don't have unlimited txt messaging in your plan), and also understand that OZ uses the SMS gateway and can be subject to the same delays that SMS messages sometimes experience. A friend of my son's, for example, was rather upset a couple of days ago because she thought he sent a text message to her at 2am - waking her up. Turns out he sent it out about 6 hours earlier, but either our carrier or hers was backed up, delaying the message for hours. If your IM client is depending on this as a transport, it's conceivable that your messaging might not be "instant". If you search the web you'll find a number of posts from a couple of years ago when this was a real problem with OZ. Mostly better now, but I still see it as a weakness of the transport for IM.
All in all, I recommend JiveTalk for people with a data plan.
