Finding your way around
The contacts tab will show you your Trillian contact list, where
you can initiate conversations with your friends or add new
Offline contacts won't show up if you have Trillian configured to hide offline contacts. This setting can be found in your iPhone Settings App, in the Trillian section.
You can add a contact using the Contact tab's [+] button in the upper-right.
You can search for a contact using the search box at the top of the contact list. If you can't see the search box, you may have to pull your list down further to reveal it.
If you have a large contact list, you'll be able to become
better organizes by adding your most often used contacts as
favorites. To designate a contact as a favorite, simply click on
the blue arrow to the right of their contact list entry and then
tap the "Add Favorite" button. They'll now show up in your
Tip: If you ever delete Trillian from your iPhone, your favorites list will be cleared.
All ongoing conversations appear in the Chats tab.
Every entry in the Chats tab is also shown as a tab at the top of every conversation window, so you don't always need to come back to the Chats tab to switch between open conversations!
The most recent unread message for any chat is listed along with the entry.
To close a chat, slide your finger from right to left over the entry then delete.
To close all chats at once, press the Edit button then the button that looks like a trash can.
To begin a new conversation, tap a contact in your Contacts tab. If the contact isn't in your list, press the [+] button in the upper right of the Chats tab to manually enter their details.
The Accounts tab is where you can change your status, manage
connections or change how you look to others.
To set your status, choose between the status options shown in the center of the page: Offline, Away, Invisible.
To sign out, scroll to the bottom of the page and Sign Out.
Tip: Closing Trillian doesn't sign you out automatically. You stay signed on in the background (using our advanced Octopus servers) so that we can send you Push Notifications when you get a new message!
You can edit your icon (seen by others in their contact lists) by tapping your icon in the upper-left. Trillian will let you choose an existing photo from your iPhone or take a new one with the camera. Afterwards, you can crop the image for fine tuning. If you wish, you can choose from our icon collections such as Holidays or Halloween. We add more icons (and collections) over time!
To add an account, press the [+] in the upper-right. See the next section for more information.
To manage an account, tap its entry. You'll be able to manually set it online or offline by sliding the On/Off switch at the top of a particular account's screen.
