dwergs says ( 15 May 2009 ):
More news from eBuddy, as they just released eBuddy for Android. Following Palringo and Meebo, it is the third IM aggregator available on Google's mobile platform.
eBuddy for Android can connect to Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo!, AIM, ICQ, Google Talk and Facebook Chat. Because it runs in the background, you can stay online when for instance you receive a call, and new message alerts (along with a sound and/or vibration) will appear in the Android status bar. Offline messages, emoticons, buzzers and auto-reconnect are also supported.
Here's how to get it:
1) Go to the Android Market on your Android-powered phone.
2) Search for the keyword "ebuddy".
3) Install eBuddy for Android.
