Trillian is an instant messaging app that works on phones, tablets, and desktops while keeping your chats neatly synchronized between all of them! We think conversation should be easily shared between all of your devices, not trapped as text messages on your phone. Here's how we do it:
• INSTANT MESSAGING: Your unique Trillian username can be used to send unlimited messages free of charge. Trillian uses your existing data plan and/or WiFi.
• ANYWHERE: Trillian's continuous client feature delivers your chats instantly between all of your connected devices. In addition, Trillian automatically silences push notifications on mobile devices if you're active on a desktop - no more dealing with a phone buzzing on your desk all day!
• SIMPLE: Trillian places a strong emphasis on fast and reliable message delivery and a beautiful, easy-to-use interface.
• SECURE: All communication with Trillian servers uses TLS to ensure third-parties can't read your chats.
• INTEROPERABLE: Of course, Trillian wouldn't be Trillian without support for Facebook Chat, MSN, Google Talk, AIM, ICQ, Yahoo!, and Jabber. More Info »

Despite the ads, I still like it

Positive Comment by cdpinker about Trillian Also mentioning: Pidgin Jan 2012

The ads are intrusive and annoying. However, the app itself is decent and very versatile, supporting a wide range of services. It is fairly stable and I've used it happily for over a year now. I don't pay for the premium version and haven't missed any features I'd want. The UI is also good, minimalist and well designed, and I prefer that to Pidgin. Each to their own of course!

A few weeks ago, I returned to Trillian after many years away. During Trillian's absence from my computer, I initially ran nothing at all, and then tried out Digsby for a while. A long-time Trillian Basic user (before the existence of Trillian Astra), I switched back to Trillian due to having recently purchased an Android phone; Trillian's cloud history was the primary incentive.

Today, I finally got around to uninstalling it. Unfortunately, in the current form, the ads that Trillian displays are far too intrusive for me. The worst were the ones that popped-up as notification windows that needed to be clicked away (they don't disappear after a time period), but the ones inserted into the chat windows were annoying as well.

It's a shame, really - the rest of the program is superb, and if you're up for purchasing the ad-free pro version, don't hesitate to do so. However, with excellent free alternatives such as Digsby (watch out what you allow to be installed along with it, though) or Pigdin, I had very little patience for the intrusive ads shown by Trillian. If they ever change the way ads are shown, I'll be back; the conversation sync with the Android client is too good to pass up, but it didn't outweigh those darn ads.

I think all that stuff can be switched off in the options since i was able to turn it off before buying the pro version (i'm Talking about Trillian 5 not Astra or course).

I dunno... I thought I looked around pretty thoroughly.

just started using this. I haven't tried Pidgin or Digsby though, so I can't compare : but this is a very customizable and easy to use piece of software.
