How many here remember Trillian? How useful was that application back in the day? I mean, logging into all IM networks from one device, no native clients necessary? Sadly, Trillian development has pretty much dissolved, likely due to the fact that people just don't use IM like they used to.
A few weeks back, I found out about Franz
. Franz is the Trillian for today's age, and damn is it useful. Currently , I've got Franz setup to handle the following
- Facebook Messenger
And that's just the beginning. There's so much
that can be done with Franz. For example, twitter and tweetdeck, twitter DM's (separate)... It's just incredible.
If you haven't heard of the app, or have any
of the above native apps installed on your PC (mac or Linux included), then you owe it to yourself to consolidate them all in Franz. In most cases (from my experience), this handles things way better than native apps!
