Trillian Messenger for iOS Gets a Major Update, iPad Support
Trillian Messenger for iOS has been updated with a new user interface, launchpad, address book integration, security improvements, and more.
Trillian is an instant messaging app that works on phones, tablets, and desktops while keeping your chats neatly synchronized between all of them! We think conversation should be easily shared between all of your devices, not trapped as text messages on your phone.
INSTANT MESSAGING: Your unique Trillian username can be used to send unlimited messages free of charge. Trillian uses your existing data plan and/or WiFi.
ANYWHERE: Trillian's continuous client feature delivers your chats instantly between all of your connected devices. In addition, Trillian automatically silences push notifications on mobile devices if you're active on a desktop - no more dealing with a phone buzzing on your desk all day!
SIMPLE: Trillian places a strong emphasis on fast and reliable message delivery and a beautiful, easy-to-use interface.
SECURE: All communication with Trillian servers uses TLS to ensure third-parties can't read your chats.
INTEROPERABLE: Of course, Trillian wouldn't be Trillian without support for Facebook Chat, MSN, Google Talk, AIM, ICQ, Yahoo!, and Jabber.
WHAT'S NEW IN THIS VERSION:
LAUNCHPAD: Trillian's new launchpad lets you keep up with the people most important to you at a single glance. Don't worry, your contact list is still readily available, searchable, and sortable according to your personal preferences.
ADDRESS BOOK: Trillian can now optionally import names and photos from your address book. Make your launchpad shine by showcasing beautiful photos of your contacts.
SECURITY: We've taken additional steps to secure all traffic coming from Trillian using TLS, meaning all of your chats are now protected from third-party eavesdropping.
USER INTERFACE: Almost every screen of Trillian has been touched up and polished, from minor graphic updates to ensuring orientation changes are as smooth as silk.
NOTIFICATIONS: Chat windows now support in-window notifications to let you easily read messages from more than one person at a time.
MOBILE INDICATOR: As a special bonus for those of you that use the Trillian chat network, we've added an optional mobile indicator to let your friends know when you're on the phone.
SAVE OUTGOING PICTURES: A common request, you can now instruct Trillian to save photos as you send them to others, ensuring you never lose a funny photo again.
NEW EMOTICONS: We've polished up our existing emoticons and added a whole bunch of new ones for your chatting pleasure.
INVITES: You can now invite your friends to use Trillian from within the app if you have their phone number. Even cooler, when your friends join Trillian and approve your add request they will automatically sign online without the need to exchange usernames!
AND: Support for the iPad? You got it! The new version of Trillian is now a universal app, and we've created a very unique iPad-only user interface that we think you'll really enjoy.
You can download Trillian from the App Store for free.
