    Here's a link that'll get you the new Trillian for Android Beta. If you have multiple IM accounts, I would definitely recommend that you give this a try (the new Trillian for PC also works well).

    Trillian Beta Released for Android, Is Already the Best IM Client Out There


    Moderators - I know this may not be the right forum, but I'm sure there are many like me who probably just check the Incredible section.

    Thanks! I used Trilliam for WinMo on my Omnia. It really is a nice, low-mem usage IM client.

    I love trillian for desktop. App looks great so far...going to run it for a bit and see if it keeps the phone awake.

    There is also a setting to have it shut off after a certain amount of time inactive.

    I was so excited when I saw this on my news feed on Facebook when I got home not too long ago. I downloaded it right away and so far am liking it. I tested ebuddy and hated it. Never bothered with Meebo.
    Trillian has been my choice since 05 with 3.1. Actually, I think my desktop still has 3.1 on it as I haven't used it since 07. Laptop is running 5.0 beta.

    eBuddy = sucks
    IM+ = sucks
    Trillian = sucks a little less

    don't get me wrong, it's the best I've found so far, but why can't I find one damn IM app that lets me pick my notification sound? More importantly, none so far offer a "reminder" option!

    no you are not. Your phone may sleep, but it's set to wake and poll at certain intervals, that's the only way it would get messages.

    why is no one giving any detailed info about this app. We all know about trillian for PC, but this isn't about trillian for PC.

    I'm not sure exactly what technology they're using but when I close the app I still get notifications. And in 8h of usage it used only a few seconds of CPU so it's not polling for new IM's

    Palringo is trash, and it's abandonware, judging by the last update date.

    I'm pretty impressed with this so far, though (Trillian).

    I really hope they add some type of messaging widget. That would make them really stand out from the pack.

    Do some more extensive testing. If I "back out" of the program I'll receive IMs for a minute or two. But 2 test IMs i sent a little later never arrived in the hour I waited.

    Same here, and none of my IM Accounts that are stored in my Trillian account are showing. Are we supposed to re-enter them here? I would've thought the IM accounts would just be transferred over to the phone.

    So I'm new to the Android world. I've never downloaded anything not available on the Android market. Are things like this safe to download and will this auto update like the apps I have from the market do?

    Trillian is a respected developer so this one is definitely safe. The beta will expire when the app is officially released on the market, at which posit you can uninstall it and install the market version. You might even be able to update from the beta to the market version
