"A Good Free Instant Messenger"

eBuddy is a good free instant messenger for Android users. It has most of the main Instant Messenger services people need. It also has a nice feature that shows you when your disconnected and when your reconnected (Red you got disconnected, Green your logged back in). It is very simple and easy to use.

My issues with eBuddy are ones that keep it from being my main Instant Messenger on Android. First off no Instant Messenger sucks the battery life out of your phone like eBuddy. The conserve battery option is nice except if you talk to a lot of people and like to do other things when waiting for people to respond. In a conversation not many want to wait 15 minutes for a response and also when this option is checked a lot more messages won't come through than normal.

Another problem I have with eBuddy is it's file size which is growing to be be more than 5x the file size of Meebo. And as much as people complain about Meebo's disconection, I have found eBuddy disconnects more often than Meebo.

To me it's a war between Meebo and eBuddy for battle of supremacy. The features I like that eBuddy has that Meebo lacks are it shows you when you are reconnected where Meebo doesn't and ability to hide contacts that are offline.

Pros
  • Simple and Easy To Use
  • A Lot Of Different Services To Choose From
  • Notifications When Disconnect And Reconnect
  • Ability To Hide Offline Buddies
  • Free
Cons
  • Drains Battery Faster Than Most
  • File Size Is More Than 5x That of Meebo
  • Extended Battery Life Delays Messages
  • Disconnects More Than Meebo
  • High Resource Usage
