14 messaging services in one app

Franz is a simple messaging application which supports 14 popular services.

The program works with Skype, WhatsApp, Steam Chat, Facebook Messenger, Slack, Telegram, HipChat, GroupMe, ChatWork, Grape, Discord, WeChat, Hangouts and Glitter.

It's also extremely flexible. You don't have to choose a single service and log on just to that. You're able to add logon details for multiple services, including multiple accounts on the same service, then switch between them in a click or two.

Inevitably this "one size fits all" approach means you don't get all the options provided with the original chat clients.

But this is still an early release and the developer says more service-specific customisations will be arriving soon.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.31

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.
