    One of the most popular chat clients available on the PC that allows for use of multiple chatting services is now available for Android Devices. Trillian for Android will let you connect AIM, Facebook Chat, Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, Google Talk, ICQ and more with just one app. Some of the new features include:

    • Tabbed chat: Switch between many simultaneous chat sessions easily by tapping the tabs. View latest activities at a glance!
    • Landscape mode: We know you want it, so we included this in the first version of our Android port! Works perfectly with phones with a sliding keyboard.
    • Send emoticons, photos and buzz: Share a picture taken with your phone camera, have fun with a large variety of emoticons, and even buzz your friends to demand attention!

    Im not liking this beta at all.. no way to put it in the status bar, at least that I can find, looks clunky... hopefully will improve.

    Maybe I am associating something else with this here but I have noticed an abnormally high 3G activity since I installed this beta.

    Anyone else notice this?

    I installed three apps, one being the beta. And the past two days my batter cant last longer then nine hours. I hope it's not trillian because I'm really liking the beta

    I installed the beta, signed in, sent 1 message, turned the screen off and put it in my pocket. I pulled my phone out in line at dinner and noticed that it was down to 20% in a matter of an hour and the 3G arrows were lit (both directions). Five minutes later I noticed the 3G icon was STILL showing data transmitting in both directions. I had to put the phone in airplane mode to keep it from going completely dead.

    Like I said, I am not sure if the beta is doing it but nothing has changed in my device configuration in the last few weeks. I uninstalled to make sure.

    No I didnt. I didnt know that was needed. So, I have to "suspend" trillian when I turn my phone off, or it will eat my battery? If that is the case, then they should put that in the release notes or something.

    Definitely the best IM application I've seen. It's the first one that has actually swayed me from not uninstalling it within minutes. It even appears to use the stock messaging service instead of creating it's own like others did. Very light, full featured and best of all, no gaudy interface!
