Streamlining your Email, Instant Message and Social Network Communications
I picked up the recent edition of MaximumPC Magazine while I was in the airport the other day and they were showcasing some “Must have free apps”. A few things in that magazine intrigued me, but the only one I’ve followed-up on so far is Digsby: Digsby = IM + Email + Social Networks
It combines all of your email applications, social media stuff, and instant messaging accounts into one place. I doubt I’ll ever launch Tweet deck again now.
I use it for:
- MSN Messenger
- Yahoo Messenger
- POP3 & IMAP accounts not yet setup

Here is a Twitter timeline and see how it docks into your open application list in a Microsoft OS:
I’m definitely digging Digsby.
Warning: when installing, make sure you accept just Digsby and Decline everything else. It is pre-packaged with a bunch of junk.
What is your “must have free app” for Email, IM and keeping up with your Social Networks?
