Palringo Instant Messaging: 2.0 Released
By on October 19th, 2009

Palringo, a  popular instant messaging program for Windows phones, has officially upgraded itself   to v2.0. Palringo is free IM software for Windows Phones, unlike IM+ which costs around $39.95.   Palringo offers some unique features such as “Groups” and voice-clip ability. Apart from that Palringo supports:

-AIM
-GTalk
-MSN
-Facebook
-ICQ
-Yahoo!
-Gadu-Gadu
-XMPP/Jabber
-iChat

Though the app still looks the same, nor does it offer any new unique features,   it has added useful features that we badly   needed.

Here are few new features:

-Completely new install/uninstall process
-Automatic updates now only notify users that an update is available – downloading is manually approved
-Settings->Display->Group join/leave alerts
-Settings->Display->Contact List (item size) option
-Settings->Display->Tab size option replaces “Large Buttons” option.
-Contact list can now be filtered by service type, so you can effectively have a separate list for -Facebook/MSN/Yahoo etc.
-Added private message spam filter for Palringo service
-Edit Profile link from overview screen
-Automatic detail expansion display on reduced contact list items
-Optimized list rendering code
-Optimized avatar rendering
-Default filenames for saving images
-Reformatting of photos has been made more reliable
-Miscellaneous other bug fixes and optimizations

What we like:

Features like Groups and Voice-clip Ability.

What we Don’t like:

App requires you to register on its own server like Trillian desktop app
