Description

Beem status should be removed from ongoing. I only want to see a notification icon in my notifications if I receive a message...not all the time like it is now.

Beem is an active service which must not be killed by the system in case of low memory. For this reason, the user must know if it is running in the background. This is why we have a notification all the time.
The real question behind this is : Do you consider Beem important enough to prevent the system to kill it and disconnect you temporarly ? I do.

Since the ongoing notification is really more of a convenience to the user and not a requirement, I think it might be worthwhile to make it an option in the settings to turn it on or off. Some people just don't like having an icon constantly in their header, and this would make everyone happy. Just my two cents.
