SHAPE Services let us know that they have released a new version of IM+ for BlackBerry, which has their own cross-platform messenger “Beep”. Previously, we reported SHAPE Services started an open beta for Beep app. With Beep, IM+ users are able to chat with contacts from their phone’s Address Book as well as with friends from different IM networks in a single unified interface. Beep is a free alternative to SMS and MMS. Right, it may sound similar to BBM and WhatsApp, but cross-platform and all-in-one..
