IM plus All-in-One Messenger Pro by SHAPE Services
This app does exactly what the name suggests; it allows you to use your BlackBerry to chat to your family and friends across different messenger platforms including MSN, Yahoo and of course, Skype. This article is focusing on the Skype aspect and what this app has to offer in regards to the Skype IM.
First of all, there is no cost to use this to send your Skype messages, after you subscribe, you will be able to opt in for their speech recognition feature where you can dictate instant messages and send them to your family and friends.
The Skype user interface is friendly and not exactly limited, because you will also be able to utilize your Skype group chat the same way that you do with Skype on your PC. You can send photos and files as well.
Many of the other BlackBerry Skype apps would have received a higher rating except for the fact that they drain your battery very quickly. IM Plus All-in-One Messenger Pro has come up with a solution to that dilemma. You can leave your IM in Push Mode, which will mean that it will send your messages to your BlackBerry email inbox and you can reply to them immediately if you like.
This product is usable once your BlackBerry OS is 4.6 or higher. This app is not endorsed in any way by Skype, but serves well to bring Skype to you. It is a bit costly, coming in at $39.99 USD, but most users will agree that it is worth the price. Download IM Plus All-in-One Messenger Pro.
