Digsby – My Favourite Application of 2008

digsby_100x100If you only could install one application on your computer in 2009, install Digsby!Have you also been caught up in the Web 2.0 world where IM and Social Networking have taken over you life like me?Previously I had about 4 IM programs running not to mention the browser constantly open with Facebook, Twitter and my webmail.  Digsby consolidates all your Instant Messaging, Social Networking and Email under one roof.  I had tried this previously with iGoogle but nothing has produced the success and ease of use of Digsby.It has support for the following:

Instant Messaging clients:

Email Accounts:

Social Networking:

It works, it is light on your system and life just got easier!  Download Now!

Unfortunately it isn’t available for Mac OS yet, but I’m sure it is not far off.

Installation Tips:  When the installation wizard comes up click ‘Accept’ for Digsby and then for the following pages 8 or so pages, click “Decline” otherwise you will end up with a whole lot more ‘advertising’ apps than your bargained for.  Once installed you never get any advertising!

Happy Digsbying!

    I use a Mac and there are a few apps that get close to Digsby.

    1. Adium – This is the best multiclient IM on the Mac that I have tried so far. It links into everything.

    2. Nimbuzz – also multiclient IM, but adds the Facebook support, and also runs on iPhone. It doesnt have a native client for Mac but they offer a web based app that is pretty good. They are working on a native Mac OS X app. Nimbuzz supports email and also VoIP SIP protocol on the iPhone so if you are near a wifi network you can make VoIP calls.

    Nimbuzz also provide some widgets for your website that allow people to contact you directly. Nice feature.

    I’m not sure why you dont just use your email client to link into the webmail services. I like my email client separate.

    I havent found a social networking consolidation app for Mac, not that I’ve looked. But its a neat idea.

    See ya !
