Gets me through the work day
eBuddy is a slick solution to several problems posed by stock Android apps Facebook and Google Talk. FB doesn’t have a chat function, and Google Talk requires a force close on a lot of phones, making it quite the battery hog. Ignore them both and pick up eBuddy, where you can sync not only Facebook and Google chats, but also Yahoo, ICQ, MSN, AIM and MySpace chats as well.
You have to create an eBuddy account (simple) and it’s nice that on login, you can choose which of your chat accounts you want to open. If I only want to use GChat and not show up as available on Facebook chat at the time, I can log in only to Google.
The little speech-bubble interface is cute and easy to read, and navigating the menus and settings is pretty intuitive. Overall, this is another handy all-in-one that anyone who chats should pick up before the developer realizes how awesome this is and starts charging for it.
