Trillian
Trillian allows you to chat to people on different messaging and social networks

 If you’re online there is a very high chance that you use some form of messaging tool to keep in touch with friends, family and colleagues. It used to be the case that if you wanted to talk to someone on Google Talk, or AIM, you would both have to be using a Google Talk or AIM client. With Trillian installed, you have access to not only a range of chat networks such as Jaber, ICQ and Windows Live Messenger, but also social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.

Trillian is an app that is available for a range of platforms, including Windows, Mac and iOS. As the app can be easily used on more than one device, it makes sense that the software should automatically synchronize your chat history between them. But Trillian is not just about chatting – it can also be used to update your status on Fcaebook, post tweets on Twitter and make use of Foursquare.

Still to be added to the app is support for group chatting, as well as support for Skype – once these features have been added, there is not much that needs to be done to make Trillian an indispensible chat tool. Other features you would expect from a chat client such file sharing are also be to found here, and despite the impressive range of features, Trillian boasts a small footprint and speedy performance.

The Mac version of Trillian is good looking, but it does feel somewhat more disjointed that the Windows version. Everything works exactly as it should, but the way the interface is set out is not perfect. The app also suffers due to the fact that there is still currently no support for Skype – this is something that has been available in the Windows version of the software for a little while, but it is promised in a future release.

What's new in 6.1 build 2 (see changelog for more)?

- Contact List: Fixed crash when moving contacts
- Emoji: Fixed issue related to incorrectly sending some emoji
- Group Chat: Fixed crash with kicking someone from a group chat
- Message Window: Empty message window may appear incorrectly

Verdict:

 One of the most feature-complete multi-platform chat client available, Mac users are highly recommended to check this out.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.61

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.19.61
