A Messenger Client Called Digsby

A Messenger Client Called DigsbyI am not sure why they called it Digsby but if you are able to get past the strange name you will discover a massively powerful messenger client that does exactly what it promises.

It manages the email, social media and Instant messenger accounts that you instruct it to monitor.

The beauty of this is that you can see in an instant which accounts have new messages which means no more digitally lying underneath your mailbox waiting for the virtual postman to deliver that vital message you were promised.

I will confess I have been guilty of this but this messenger removes the need for you to lurk.

The video below shows you how I use this application

Unlike many other applications of this type you are not limited to just one Twitter account, you can have as many as you desire and when it comes to email the same applies.

It has fast setup options for the following messenger services

  • Gmail
  • POP / IMAP Email
  • Ymail
  • Windows Messenger
  • GTalk
  • AIM
  • ICQ
  • Jabber
  • Twitter
  • Myspace
  • LinkedIn
  • Facebook

These can all be setup very quickly and without any headaches

Once you have these setup you can then post a Digsby messenger client status update to all of the Instant messenger services that you use, allowing your friends to see when you are free to chat.

The most useful feature I find with this service apart from getting alerted to any issues that I need to address when my computer starts up is, you can go directly to the relevant account by simply clicking on the notification.

This one simple click saves you the hassle of having to log into each account every time you wish to respond to a notification, you can of course disable Digsby from storing your account passwords but that would seriously cripple the benefits this messenger client can bring to you.

The one thing to take away from my gushing about Digsby is that there is not a lot to say about it as it is a highly focussed messenger client that does not have any unrelated bells and whistles to distract you. This is the messenger client that is as focussed on moving forwards as you are.

I have been using this service for ages and highly recommend this to anyone who has more than one email address and a social media presence. By the way I almost forgot to mention, it is free to use.

    Hi igor, boy you get about don’t you… in the nicest way of course :)

    This looks like a fantastic piece of kit that will save me hours of switching from to another to keep up with my accounts. One of my email accounts (my dump and test account) has been getting opened less and less over the past few weeks and I missed an important email deadline because of it.

    This looks like the savior mate. Great video demo by the way igor.

    Catch you up soon mate,

      Thanks Barry, this really does help when it comes to seeing what is going on in your world and as you say if there are certain accounts that you need to monitor then by having Digsby alert you to new messages there is no excuse for missing them.

    Marketing as I understand is: creating awareness and demand for a product or services and using the supply chain management system, ensuring that it reaches the end user effectively.

      That is marketing in a nutshell and of course your site completes the circle by selling the product that you have made me aware of, nice site by the way.
