eBuddy 1.4

eBuddy has shut down. This app no longer works!!

eBuddy is another free instant messaging client similar to Nimbuzz.  I like Nimbuzz but some users prefer eBuddy and I’ve gotten requests to add it to BoostApps so here it is.

eBuddy supports Yahoo, MSN, GTalk, AIM, ICQ, MySpace and Facebook. The “Lite” version of Nimbuzz that works on iDEN phones supports Yahoo, MSN, GTalk, AIM, ICQ, Skype, GaduGadu, Hyves and StudiVZ .

One thing that that eBuddy and Nimbuzz have in common is that the keys are mapped incorrectly on iDen phones, use these workarounds.

1. Press the green Callkey for “OK” key’s action
2. Press the right soft key for the left soft key’s action
3. Press the menu key for the  right soft key‘s action
4. Exception : When entering text in a pop up window the soft keys (labeled OK and Cancel) work as labeled.
