Review: Trillian beta for BlackBerry

Body: 
Trillian

It wasn’t too long ago when we reviewed IM+; the all-in-one messenger. IM+ united various instant messengers/chat features from social networks and allowed users to manage their accounts from a single location. While it is a great solution for keeping in contact, there are also other options available out there. For example; there is Nimbuzz, which we have reviewed in the past as well; you can check it out here. These are welcome additions to any BlackBerry, especially since not everyone is a BB user; which means no access to BlackBerry Messenger. Don’t ask me why they don’t own a BlackBerry, that’s just silly talk if you ask me.

Trillian is a multi-platform application that “lets you chat everywhere” and has other 450 features available (not all of the features are available for the BlackBerry). The application is currently in public beta for BlackBerry users. From your BlackBerry, you can connect to Windows Live, Yahoo!, Jabber, Google Talk, MySpaceIM, Facebook, ICQ, AIM and Astra (allows you to connect and share with other Trillian Astra users). Let’s see if Trillian can prove that it’s the “Ultimate Instant Messenger”

A few week back we got a tease that Trillian for BlackBerry was indeed on the way, and just got word that the public beta should be available in the next few days. I've played around with the app a bit, and I have to say I'm impressed. It integrates multiple IM services well and makes for an easy one-stop for your messaging. Trillian supports MSN, Yahoo, AIM, ICQ, MySpace, Facebook, Jabber and Google Talk. The app has a clean layout and is easy to navigate, and has visual notifications as well as LED indicator. Features include:

  • Send pictures
  • Stay signed on for up to 7 days with the application closed
  • Contact avatars
  • Manage your contact list - group contacts, rename contact list items, sorting and offline contact preferences
  • Alerts and notifications: LED alert, email push notifications, full integration with standard profiles
  • Set local display name, set local avatar
  • Copy & paste in message windows
  • Privacy managment (blocking, visibility controls, etc)
  • View user information (AIM profiles, etc)

The Trillian team will be taking in feedback throughout the beta to make things even better. The app will be available as a beta until a full release is ready, at which point it will be available in BlackBerry App World for around $5-10 (price has yet to be determined). We'll let you know when it is available for download, but for now hit the jump for some more screenshots.
