Trillian adds realtime, multi-network chat sync across all your devices

For a while now, people have questioned whether multi-network chat app Trillian was worth its pricetag. With the company's latest update, there's a better chance users will say "yes." The big addition is that chats in Trillian are now shared in realtime across all your devices -- similar to how Google Talk and Skype have handled chats for some time. The difference, of course, is that Trillian w...

Trillian for Android review -- not quite worth your money yet

Earlier this week, Trillian, one of the oldest third-party IM client developers, released its Android app. I've always found Trillian a bit gimicky -- kind of like a 'Super Mega' Windows Live Messenger, with more bells and whistles than I really need, and a bloated, hard-to-navigate UI as a result. Trillian for Android, I'm sad to say, is no better. Ultimately, it's functional but it feels like...

Miranda IM 0.9 is now out -- new icons, better Win7 support, and lots more!

Miranda IM is pretty much the most versatile, customizable, powerful, minimalistic and down-right sexy IM client on the planet. I know that sounds like a lot, but I've been using it for years, and I've tried pretty much everything else Windows and Linux have to offer. I never tried Adium, so maybe Adium's better – but for Windows, nothing beats Miranda. As you can tell, this application is ...

Multi-network chat app Trillian now shields users from NSFW and malicious links

I'm blown away by how many of my customers have three or four chat programs installed on their computers. I'm even more blown away by how many of them wind up with malware after letting their curiosity get the best of them and clicking a link some unknown user sends via those chat apps. If only they'd switch to something smarter, like a multi-network app...and maybe one that had some kind of f...

Awesome new version of Trillian might be the best iPhone chat app

When I first reviewed Trillian for iPhone, it showed promise, but it wasn't quite ready for the bigtime yet. I had a couple of minor issues with the 1.0 release, including a lack of landscape mode and making it too much of a pain to close a chat. Well, Trillian has fixed both of those issues, and much, MUCH more in the new version 1.1. Trillian now supports Facebook Chat, allows you to stay sig...

Trillian chat client gets a Mac version, now in alpha

Trillian has enjoyed a nice, long run as one of the most popular multi-protocol IM clients for Windows. It's not just surviving, though, it's thriving and expanding to new platforms. I tested out the very nice iPhone version recently, and now there's finally Trillian for Mac! It's not perfect, but keep in mind that it's still in alpha, so I expect a lot of feature additions and improvements in ...

Trillian brings impressive multi-network chat to the iPhone

Trillian, the excellent all-purpose chat app we've loved for years on the PC, just made the leap to the iPhone. There are a lot of things to love about this pocket-sized version of Trillian, including its great-looking interface and its support for several different chat services. You'll need to sign up for a free Astra account if you don't already have one, but it's nice that Trilian's existin...

Trillan Astra chat client leaves beta

After years of private testing, Trillian launched a public beta of its updated multi-protocol chat client earlier this summer. This week, the company took off the beta label, and Trillian Astra replaces the company's older chat client. Trillian Astra lets users chat with contacts on a number of services, including AOL Intant Messenger, Windows live Mesenger, Google Talk, ICQ, and Yahoo! Messenge...

Trillian Astra beta goes public, multi-protocol chat for everyone

Trillian has launched a public beta of Trillian Astra, the company's updated chat client for AOL, Yahoo!, Windows Live, Google, and other instant messaging service. Trillian Astra also lets you update your status on Facebok and Twitter, something earlier versions of the IM client couldn't do. The application has been in private testing for what seems like forever, but a few months ago the compan...

Trillian Astra beta invites easy to snag (multi-protocol IM client)

Remember the first time you realized that not all of your friends used the same instant messaging service? If you were on AIM and they were using MSN messenger you either had to sign up for a new service and run two desktop applications or shoot them frequent emails. And then came Trillian, one of the first programs to let users interact with contacts on multiple IM networks from a single applic...

Adam's Favorite Windows Apps: Trillian

I've blogged about it before, and I'll blog about it again. Back when I was just a wee lad of the Internet, I found a most wonderful concept: instant messaging! At the time, I thought MSN Messenger was the coolest thing since the automatic bread slicer. Of course, my best friend preferred Yahoo! Messenger, and the majority of everyone else I knew would use nothing but AOL Instant Messenger. So, I ...

Instan-T: Voice, video and text chat client for Google, AOL, MSN, and Yahoo!

Your co-workers use MSN Messenger, your family is partial to AOL Instant Messenger, and your friends use Google Talk. There are plenty of utilities that let you keep in touch with all of your contacts regardless of the IM platform they're using. But while we love Digsby, Trillian, Pidgin, and Adium most of the time, there are a few features missing from those apps: Support for voice and video c...

Facebook chat coming soon, privacy controls launch today

Facebook is adding new privacy controls today which will give you more control over your interactions with people in your friend lists. For example, you can share photo albums or applications with your professional contacts while hiding away the good stuff for closer friends. The company also confirmed plans to launch a web-based instant messenger service that will let you communicate with other...

Simkl: instant message archiving now open to public

Simkl is a web service that saves your instant message history to its servers so that you can access that searchable history from any computer with Internet access. You'll need a Simkl account and some money (1 month of archiving is $2.99 and one year is $24.99). You'll also have to change a setting in your IM client to use Simkl as a proxy (so that it can save your messages). If the thought of a...
