It's the only multiprotocol client that appears to work any more. All of the first party providers have decided they're either too cool for third party access (Yahoo, Facebook) or are attempting to ram proprietary programs down our throats (Google Hangouts), and no other client seems to be as actively developed as Trillian to keep up with these changes. I've even paid for other apps (like IM Pro+) that don't work as well as Trilly does on the basics like simply connecting to the service and reliably sending and receiving messages.
I hate Trillian, I call it Ghetto IM. I send messages out that take 5 minutes to go through, and up to the same time to receive. But then of course I get 15 messages at once. You also have to pay for your chat history, which Google gives you for free. I've had tons of glitches that have not been resolved by the developers, even when I purchased their "upgraded" version. I hate this program and can't wait until I never use it again!
Works fine, does what it's supposed to. Doesn't always synch history with the desktop version. My main complaint is that notifications don't stay up on my phone when I try to check them. Turn the screen on to see who messaged me and the notification disappears as if I had manually cleared it. So then I have to open the so to check if it is something important or not.
It's very clean and sharp and there's a lot I like about it; I've been using this program on my computer for a ridiculously long time. Would prefer to see the status message of contact in favourites and just a notification number next to the user, not a conversation clip. Won't always check messages to tell me if someone has replied, but trillian had been good at fixing bugs lately.
I have been using Trillian for a long time on the desktop. I use it for work and personal. Having the mobile version allows me to stay connected even when I'm not at me desk. If you use IM a lot, invest in the pro version. It's the least you can do to say thank you for making Trillian everything you could ask for. The one IM to rule them all.
Very buggy and doesn't get updated often, it doesn't even support quick reply. Sharing is buggy, at times it doesn't actually share what it's supposed to. When connection is mildly spotty, messages sometimes get stuck in a "queue" and takes forever to send (something that any other IM doesn't do in the same situation), it doesn't always sync with the desktop client, gifs sometimes crashes it, and it also crashes randomly for no apparent reason.
Fixed issue causing settings to be reset periodically and fixed a few crashes.
