When Apple initially announced plans to bring multitasking to the iPhone, it was instant messenger clients and music apps that would reap the most benefits. With Spotify’s release just around the corner, Beejive is the first instant messenger to step up to the plate.

Beejive, arguably one of the best instant messenger services for the iPhone has now been updated to support iOS4, background tasks and fast switching.

This means you’ll quickly be able to continue conversations while you browse the web, respond to emails or listen to music.
