There’s a new (almost) must-have app for Android tablet owners out there. Called LilyPad HD, it is said to be the first floating instant messaging app for Android tablets. In other words, you will be able to keep an eye on your instant messaging activities, even while watching a YouTube video, surfing the web or using any other app — the chat window will remain visible at all times.
Not all is that cool, however – there are three problems with LilyPad:
- At the moment, it only support Google Talk though other IM networks will be added in the near future.
- It’s still in beta
- And related to the second point – it’s not free.
It’s kinda strange to ask people to pay for a beta product if you ask me. Sure, it brings cool capabilities to an Android tablet, but I’m not sure I would get it at this moment. Let’s wait until that “beta” sign is removed and then pour out $1.50. It’s well worth the money…
