Jivetalk is absolutely worth the money. Spend the extra ten and get the lifetime transferrable license too!

JiveTalk is more than worth its money. I would gladly pay a higher price for the program since it works well, is easy on the eyes, and is easy to understand. Plus, it works for multiple messengers. Can't get any better than that.

To me it is well worth every penny. Not to mention just AIM, but you get MSN, ICQ, Yahoo, MyspaceIM support as well. Great user interface too.

Haha, I know. I was actually thinking that while typing it and meant to add it in, but I forgot since I was on the phone. I stand by it though - JiveTalk is a great program at a great price. It's high quality and is worth more than its price. But $30 is the perfect price

I mainly use AIM and MSN. It isn't for everyone. It is perfect for anyone that uses more than one messaging platform. In your case, AIM suits you perfectly.

Jivetalk is hands down the best. I switched back to a blackberry partially because of it.

BeeJive IM.

$30 you will not regret spending.

BeeJiveIM (Jivetalk) all the way! I bought it several months ago and I have no regrets.

I love the fact that it has the user license also. I switch bb's a lot. Saves a lot of money and hassle.

I think the answer is simple...

The only con to having Jive Talk is it's not free. It totally depends on your needs. If all you need is AIM, then no need to spend the money. You can always get JiveTalk later. I have JIveTalk, and it's great, but if you don't need it, don't get it.

JiveTalk is worth it. You can try it for Free for 20+ days. Having close to 500 ppl combined msn, yahoo and AIM it works pretty damn good. Even if i had only a few ppl i would still at least try it out for a few days.
