Trillian for Mac [Must Have Mac App #1]






I’ve been a full time Mac user for about 2 years now. The first thing that amazed me in OS X was the absolutely stunning user interface design of the applications in Mac. The application alone were enough to pull me over to the Mac side.

I’ll be posting a small review of some of the Mac apps I use on a daily basis and are a must have for anyone just starting with Mac OS X.

I’m going to start off with a app that I use the most – Trillian!

Trillian for Mac is a multi-protocol instant messaging chat application for Mac.

The various social messaging services supported by Trillian are:


  • Facebook
  • Google Talk
  • Skype
  • Live Messenger
  • Yahoo
  • AIM/ICQ
  • Twitter
  • MySpaceIM
  • Jabber
  • ICQ
  • VZ

Trillian has a very beautiful and clean look. The contact list looks very uncluttered and contacts are neatly grouped by networks.

Chatting with multiple contacts at once is very easy with contacts currently in conversation arranged to the left of the window.

Tabbed Contacts and Calandar based History

Trillian also allows you to check on your Facebook and Twitter timelines by providing a feature called ‘Social Panels’.
