Trillian Pro Will Be Free For All Platforms
Trillian has just announced that they will include all Trillian Pro features across all devices (mobile and desktop) for free, with advertisements. This means that users will be able to enjoy multiple location sign-in, themes, activity history, and other terrific features without having to pay for an upgraded account.
My only guess on the move was that Cerulean Studios (the parent company of Trillian) wasn’t making enough money on the Pro accounts and thus decided to leak the upgrade for free, on the condition that consumers would view a couple advertisements in exchange. If you absolutely can’t stand the thought of seeing advertisements, you can still shell out $12 for a Pro version.
The new features will be arriving in the Mac version for the next scheduled software release and the free versions for mobile are not yet launched, but are coming very soon so hang tight! I’ve used Trillian for many years and can say that I am pleased with the chat client. Trillian allows you hook up your Yahoo Instant Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger, IRC, and Skype. It’s a great alternative to stay in touch with your friends and family without having to have 4+ chat clients open at the same time. Give it a shot, you’ll probably like it!
