Digsby : IM, Email, Social Networking and Twitter

Digsby : IM, Email, Social Networking and Twitter Digsby is a proprietary multiprotocol instant messaging application developed by dotSyntax, LLC. Digsby is written in wxPython and uses Webkit for rendering. It currently supports e-mail notifications and alerts from MySpace, Facebook and Twitter.
It is released under a proprietary license and is currently free to download though the developers and software company are looking at various business models to earn revenue. It needs registration, which can be done through the program’s installer or through a web interface. Digsby currently supports only Windows, but has announced mac & Linux support.

Features

  • Email :The program includes an email client, with new mail notifications, POP3 and IMAP support. It automatically retrieves a “from” email address from the logged in instant messaging profiles.
  • Social networking : Digsby allows you to add social networking sites to the application.
    Updates to your MySpace friends’ profiles, status, and private messages. Provides instant access to various parts of your MySpace account, such as your profile, home page, blog, etc. Updates in your friend feeds in Facebook.
    Allows you to easily submit new “tweets”, and view your friends’ tweets.
  • Buddy List : Digsby allows users to customize their buddy list by ordering of all aspects of the buddy list, and skinning it for a personalized look. It supports metacontacts, much like Trillian’s metacontacts by a simple drag-and-drop system.
  • Chat Logging : Digsby allows users log their chat conversations to html files that are then later accessed by the built in “Past Chat Browser.” The IM community is used to chat logs from previous IM clients which made the initial decision to switch to Digsby hard. Users did not want to lose their logs, and without a built in function to import their old logs, many decided to remain with their old chat client. With a Log Converter users can switch to Digsby without losing their chat history.
