Improved a lot It still copies facebook's messenger's skin but I have no issues on WiFi now. It still erases my chat history randomly and every now and then turns crazy and begins downloading every message again, though. Also it uses up too much of my mobile data connection... way more than WhatsApp or Telegram.
Best around I have been a trillian user for a very long time. It's not perfect, but is the best in class. Good thing is that it has evolved over the years.
Up & Down 9Mb for a multi-protocol chat? What else? ^^ (Just sad for losing Skype, but we know who to blame for that, right?) - Reduced from 5 to 2: once was used to ciclically delete my account & pass and reset my settings, possibly at the most inopportune times. Solved this, now receives messages with a delay of hours compared to official protocols, blatantly alerts you for HUNDRED of text lines, andCONTINUES to do that until you check chat by chat (swiping it away gets you a new alert). Fix this to rank back to 5.
Almost perfect The only two faults I can think of: 1) it only shows/logs text while it's running (no older history), 2) following a UI redesign around 2013 (I think) you can no longer easily identify network type and online status for contacts or even yourself!
Paid version loses conversation The paid version, which is supposed to maintain conversations across devices, loses big chunks of conversations even when not changing devices. Trillian Mobile has lost today's conversation with my wife 3 times. This has been going on for months. And.... The desktop emoji isn't compatible with mobile emoji. I've been a Trillian fan for years but these are 2 ongoing and unacceptable problems.
Works well Not perfect but works well where it counts. I love that trillian works cross platform and on all of my devices. I am frequently signed in to several chat networks on a few different devices at the same time. I also love the new dark theme since I mostly chat on mobile at night. One silly complaint I have about the latest version is that they got rid of all the smileys/icons that were super cheesy but I loved using them. Bring them back! (Or make it an option)
