Trillian For BlackBerry

It's been a while now since the intial release of Trillian for BlackBerry which, launched into BlackBerry App World with version 1.0. Now, the Trillian team has been busily working on version 1.1 which is now available as a free beta download. The latest release takes a lot of the feedback generated from the first beta and implements it by offering many bug fixes and even more improvements to the application as a whole.

Changes In Version 1.1 Include:

  • Landscape support.
  • Messages inbox integration.
  • New emoticon button and browser.
  • Group contact list by service.
  • Option to start Trillian on device boot.
  • Much faster opening of message windows.
  • ‘Connect all’ and ‘disconnect all’ options.
  • Various other bugfixes and minor improvements. 

This latest release is now available as a free OTA download and any feedback of course is appreciated as it will help make the application better in the longrun. Those of you out there that have bought Trillian in the past, will get a free upgrade to this version upon its release as well, so no need to worry about purchasing the app again.

Trillian 1.1 Beta for BlackBerry now available: Landscape, inbox integration, and much more!


I have been having nothing but problems with IM+ and Beejive on my Torch. They kept disconnecting for some reason or another. The original trillian version wasn't worth paying for. This one is running so much better than any of the others.

i keep getting "some error during connecting to server". i don't have any problem w/ d previous version.

does it works on 9700 OS 5.0?

I downloaded the 85xx version from the website to install on my Curve 8520 and I noticed that the emoticon button beside the text input field is cropped. I hope they fix that on the public release.

I don't know where you Trillion 1.1 beta for free but the link you gave takes me to Trillion website and from there they give me a link to BlackBerry App World where version 1.0 is still for sale for$4.99.

Trillian vs Meebo. It's a tough choice, but since Meebo is free and synched to the online version it's a hands down win. Now, if they could only do merged contacts :)

running this on my storm 2 and loving it thus far. i've been a fan of trillian for years. great product. sleek, simple, does what it is supposed to.
