We are pleased to introduce Trillian 2.0 for iOS, the first release of Trillian as a universal app that works on your iPhone, iPod, and iPad!
Trillian 2.0 features a beautiful new interface designed exclusively for your iPad. Because Trillian’s primary element is a collection of small chat bubbles, simply “making things bigger” felt awkward to us; worse, large windows with small text snippets sometimes required a slight turn of the head while reading. Our solution keeps chat windows sanely sized and uses the rest of the screen for tabs, swiping, and in-app notifications!
Across the iPhone and iPad, Trillian’s new launchpad UI lets you keep up with the people most important to you at a single glance. Paired with optional address book integration, Trillian can now automatically import names and photos to really make your launchpad shine. In addition, your standard contact list is still available, searchable, groupable, and sortable according to your personal preferences – we’ve even added a few new settings!
Although we’ve always transmitted passwords using TLS, Trillian 2.0 now uses TLS everywhere, meaning all of your chats are now encrypted over the wire and better protected from third-party eavesdropping. Privacy and security are very important to us and we’ll continue our efforts at keeping private conversations private.
Polished and shined.
Trillian 2.0 is the fastest version of Trillian yet, with additional speedups and optimizations across the board. Almost every screen of Trillian has been improved, from minor graphic updates to ensuring orientation changes are as smooth as silk. Chat windows now support in-window notifications to let you easily read messages from more than one person at a time. A mobile indicator – for those of you that use the Trillian chat network – helps your friends quickly know when you’re away from your desk. Lastly, a whole batch of new emoticons make their proud debut in this release!
We’ll be bringing all of this thinking to Trillian for Android in the next major release, so stay tuned if you’re an Android geek. In the meantime we’ll be listening carefully to user feedback and making improvements. Thanks for your support and we hope you enjoy Trillian 2.0 for iOS!
