5 Tools to integrate all your online accounts into one
| by Priyanka Tilve
Today, most of us have more than one email account, at least three social networking accounts and possibly several chat clients. Invariably, we spend a lot of time accessing each of them. Imagine the amount of time you will save if you wouldn’t have to switch from one window to another looking for updates. While there are a lot of IM clients that allow you to integrate your instant messaging accounts, there are very few that allow you to configure all your accounts, including email as well as social networking, into one. We have listed here five such tools that let you do so.
One of the oldest and popular tools around
Trillian provides a full-fleged support for almost all types of online accounts
Another client that you can look at is Trillian that allows you to integrate all your accounts. In addition to the usual chatting clients, it supports Windows Live and Skype as well. While for social networking, it provides support for Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare and LinkedIn. When it comes to email, it supports all POP3, IMAP and native IM main integration. What sets Trillian apart from other clients is the set of features it offers, which includes video/audio chat, file transfers, group chats, proxy support and much more. Trillian offers a web-based desktop client and additionally, it also has support for Android, iOS and BlackBerry. It provides free and pro accounts. The free version is ad supported, while if you go for the paid version, it will be ad free and you get additional cloud storage support. Configuring your accounts is easy and once done, you will be notified of new messages in the form of pop-up notifications. You can choose to reply on the same by clicking on it. It will work in the background checking for updates; additionally, you will see small icons for the accounts configured in the status bar and you can click on the same to check for updates or other details. Trillian also provides several customisation options from changing fonts to arranging contacts and much more.
Something to look forward to
