 Native Meebo app released for Android
Native Meebo app released for Android

Meebo for AndroidYesterday, Meebo launched a free version of their multi-IM client on Google's Android platform for mobile phones. Like other versions, it allows you to connect to Windows Live, Yahoo!, AOL, ICQ, Jabber and Google Talk. When running in the background, received message notifications will scroll by in the status tray. Lacking emoticon support, storage of log-in details and simultaneous conversations, the feature set is so limited I wonder why they released already in the first place. From their blog:

"We really want to stress that this is just the first version. It doesn't have every feature that you would look for in a full blown desktop IM application, but we thought it would be best to release it as soon as possible, and let your suggestions guide future development."
>> Download Meebo for Android straight from the Android Market (search for meebo).

Barack Obama animated display picture for Windows Live Messenger 9.0The Obamamania ain't over yet. In celebration of president Obama's victory in yesterday's U.S. elections, I'm giving away 10 sets of Obamabuttons based on our pixelized Obama emoticons called Obamaticons for Messenger. These one-inch buttons are the real thing and you can wear them on clothing, hats or Messenger bags (superobvious pun intended).

It's dead easy to participate in this little contest. In 10 days, I will select 10 random people who did one of the following:

1) Leave a nice comment on Obamaticons.com (2 winners).
or
2) Write a blog post about the Obamaticons and link to Obamaticons.com so I can find your post (4 winners).
or
3) Become a fan of the Obamaticons on Facebook (4 winners).

The worldwide winners will be announced here on Mess.be and will be contacted personally for their shipping details. Good luck ;)

John McCain Animated Display PictureCorrection to last night's statement: I did find some John McCain content suitable for Windows Live Messenger 9 Beta, maybe not so suitable for McCain fans (my apologies to them).

We've been plugging our very own Obamaticons for a few months now, but I noticed that Kiwee has its own set of Barack Obama emoticons. It includes five animated emoticons featuring a caricatural version of the presidential candidate. The keyboard shortcuts to paste them in your conversations range from *po021 to *po025.

>> Download the five Barack Obama Emoticons by Kiwee (follow these instructions using Internet Explorer to avoid having to sign up).

PS: In case you're wondering, we haven't received or found any John McCain content for Windows Live Messenger. I guess he's just not that popular among the Messenger crowd.
