Software for SMS Reference


Software We Like for IM Reference

If you would like to recommend software, please sign your name to the recommendation so that we know it's not from a vendor. An explanation of why you like this software would be great too!

  • Trillian - Multiple network program (Recommended by Meredith)
  • Gaim - Open Source, multiple network (Recommended by Meredith)
  • Fire - Open Source, Mac, multiple network (Recommended by Aaron)
  • Adium - Open Source, Mac, multiple networks (Recommended by Aaron)
  • Wavago - Multiple network program including Skype and Google Talk, Windows only. Not a really polished user interface... (Recommended by Paul)
  • Meebo - Multiple network, web-based interface (Recommended by Jon)
    • Also: Meebo me! is a widget that lets people chat at you directly through your web site.
  • Miranda - Has anyone tried the Miranda client? This isn't a recommendation, but a query.
