Android: Those of you waiting for a more stable client (or with phones that didn’t allow sideloading) can finally test out Trillian for Android, on of our favourite (and your favourite) multi-protocol IM clients.
The stable version of Trillian has a few neat features that weren’t in our first look at the beta, like the ability to stay connected to Wi-Fi even when the phone is asleep, as well as the ability to go into a “battery saving mode” where poll times are longer but won’t kill your phone as quickly. The Push to Email feature is also nice (though it’s been there for awhile), allowing you to suspend Trillian and push any incoming emails to IM so you don’t miss any messages.
Its biggest downside is that it now runs at the hefty price of $5.14, so if you’re looking for a free alternative, you might want to check out Meebo before slapping down your hard-earned cash. If you’re a Trillian user on the desktop, though, or you just love the advanced IM features it’s brought to the table, it’s probably worth the few extra bucks.
Trillian is a $5.14 download for Android devices.
