ebuddy xms

Phew! We've been following the evolution of eBuddy XMS on Windows Phone since inception. The once ugly duckling app is now a beautiful and powerful alternative to the native Threads feature built into Windows Phone.

We're now hearing from the team that an update is propagating through the Marketplace, enabling 30-way group messaging across iOS, Android, BlackBerry, and Windows Phone devices! (If your friends are still rocking Nokia s40/s60 devices, they have to wait a little longer.)

eBuddy XMS is a free app that you can find here at the Windows Phone Marketplace. We haven't gotten our hands on the update yet, but if you have, share your thoughts in the comments or on our forums.

eBuddy XMS now available in the Marketplace

We've seen the eBuddy XMS app in beta a few weeks ago and the we're happy to see the app is now live in the Marketplace. The popular messaging service brings yet another feather in the cap of Windows Phone, especially for those who don't want to rely on or pay for SMS.

The app is free and looks way better than it it did when we last saw it with a more Metro design and better layout. We haven't taken it for a it a spin yet, but if you have, hit us up in comments with your thoughts. Pick up eBuddy XMS here in the Marketplace.

We previously touched on eBuddy earlier this year when we noticed a job posting for a Windows Phone app, now Mi Móvil Windows has cooked up an article briefly covering the eBuddy XMS beta for Windows Phone, which was made available to selected users yesterday. They note that while the app lacks features sported in other messaging apps that are already available on the platform, it does have an attractive UI.

Some features highlighted in the version 0.9 beta:

  • Ability to add contacts by scanning the handset address book, Facebook contacts, directly with PIN or eBuddy
  • Allows you to copy and delete entire conversation threads
  • Push Notifications of received messages
  • Displays the contact's online status
  • Displays information about the delivery status of a message
  • Phone Compatible with Windows 7.5 and higher Mango
  • Languages ​​available: English, Dutch and Russian

Limitations to take note of:

  • Does not allow to send or receive images
  • Does not display emotions sent from other platforms
  • Only allows text chat

Keep an eye out on this space should you be looking forward to eBuddy making an appearance.
