 |  Version: Trillian Astra 4.0.0.109 beta

"Better than the previous version"

June 23, 2009  |  By bryhoff

 |  Version: Trillian Astra 4.0.0.109 beta

Pros

The previous version of Trillian was crashing in Vista and I stopped using it. This version is much better with no crashes.

Cons

Someshat slow loading.

Summary

Trillian managed by IM accounts - and that's all that I need it to do. Therefore, I'm happy with the product.

"Donate to another unworhy cause."

June 17, 2009  |  By scoee

 |  Version: Trillian Astra 4.0.0.109 beta

Pros

It starts OK. Has some good points like all-in-one thingo's. Not good at more than a couple of acounts, unless I missed something.

Cons

WHY? And pay for it? Ya gotta be kidding! Nothing short of JOKE-WARE.

Summary

Had to re-initialize one mail logon after deletion. Deletion leaves a ton of leftovers too. You need to make an account to use it. You get 30 days free before you pay for full version. It's nothing more than a mesenger service that you get for free with your own programs, so why do these p*&@#s want money for otherwise free services. Just use your MSN, Yahoo or whatever. Stuff this BS.

"Slick, interestings, yet cash happy and crashy"

June 15, 2009  |  By nocrashonmeplz

 |  Version: Trillian Astra 4.0.0.109 beta

Pros

nice interface, lots of color schemes to choose from. nice set of services to connect to, twitter, fb, aim, yim, messenger, gtalk and more.

Cons

change a skin, it crashes. Each and every time. default layout is too cluttery, but that can be fixed in settings, text ads appear within im windows - you can hide them. 30 days free of premium then you get basic. would prefer just getting basic.

Summary

Between the last version and this version, a new app named Digsby came out and royally stole trillian's thunder. It has almost the same about of features with even more skin options for both the app and chat windows. what it would come down to would be how much mem each would require -- if you're worried about that -- to single out wich app fits you best once trillian gets it's bugs ironed out.

"Awesome, works with all clients"

June 11, 2009  |  By ballerjoe121

 |  Version: Trillian Astra 4.0.0.109 beta

Pros

Works with pretty much all IM clients (ie. Yahoo, AIM, MSN, Google Talk etc.)

Cons

None that I have found. Awesome product.

Summary

Would recommend to anyone who has multiple accounts and wants only one client to handle them all. Brilliant. Better than pidgin.
