News: LiveProfile Messenger Beta for Android Released

One of the things Blackberry pioneered was a new, more functional IM specifically for mobile devices. Blackberry Messenger was way more suited for phones than traditional IM apps. Because of this and the fact that traditional IMs still don’t do push notifications very well, there’s a great niche for apps like LiveProfile, especially when they can work across multiple platforms.

LiveProfile (one word) is current in beta for Android, but they’re working hard on Blackberry and iPhone/iPod versions as well.

With many competitors such as Kik, WhatApp and PingChat already around, some people ask “why do we need another device-to-device IM solution?” but as the saying goes, there’s always room at the top.  The trick is getting all your friends to commit to using the same app, but if you can do that.. this looks like a great D2D option.

BTW.. it can also be used as a replacement for your default text app!
