Trillian 6 for Windows
Chat with friends on different networks using Trillian 5 for Windows

With a large number of instant messaging services available - MSN, AIM, Yahoo! etc - it is likely that you have a number of IM accounts. This can mean having several instant messaging clients installed, but Trillian can be used to access all of your contacts from one handy interface.

The latest (v5) version of the program not only features a new look, but also a raft of new features. As Trillian can be installed on more than one computer and is available for numerous different platforms, the new synchronised chat history enables you to read through your message logs on any computer with the software installed.

Social networking support is also available in Trillian so you can keep up to date with Twitter, Facebook, RSS feeds, Foursquare and LinkedIn. As Windows 7 features built-in support for GPS, Foursquare users can take advantage of location aware features.

With support for AIM, Windows Live, Yahoo!, Google, Facebook Chat, Jabber, Skype and more, Trillian is one of the most comprehensive instant messaging tools available. The streamlined interface and associated performance gains make the program a joy to use and the use of skins and plugins means that Trillian is hugely customisable.

Trillian 6.1 build 11 ships with a number of enhancements:

- Policy: Added trillian.login.delay to policy.ini file
- Feature. Policy: New emoji sound setting
- Feature. Twitter: Increased character limit to 280
- Feature. Emoji: Removed some emoji from chooser
- Change. Logs: Allow advanced option to turn on diagnostic logs for certain policies
- Change. Message Window: Search now requires a double click to initiate a new chat
- Change. Facebook: Fixed regression preventing accounts with large contact lists from connecting
- Fixed. Media: Add more logging for download errors
- Fixed. Media: During file load error, messages may not show an error icon 
- Fixed. Media: Fixed regression causing media to fail to display
- Fixed. Message Window: Emoji sounds may incorrectly play during initial connect

Verdict:

Existing Trillian users will appreciate the tweaks and enhancements that have been made to the program, while new-comers will benefit from a wonderfully easy to use and feature packed IM and social networking tool.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.61

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.61

- Search messages within a specific chat: Open any chat, tap the chat name at the top to go to Contact Info/Group Info, and then tap Chat Search.
- Design improvements for iOS 11.
- Post text-only updates to your status and they'll be visible for 24 hours. Just tap the pencil icon in the Status tab, type what you'd like to share, and pick a background color or font.
