Nice. Looks like a copy of I wish they could support my Pidgin :(


Its great software, the one I was searching for. But I am afraid of using it. I am waiting this software reviewed by cnet editors before I use it.


This is a very useful tool, especially for me because I am using multiple chat clients. Thank you for the info.


Site is no longer operational – client download is not available – and even though the homepage is still up; there is no access to download the client… sad – because the alternatives are few and far between..


Simkl is stll in closed beta, plus it doesn’t support as many IM clients as IM-History. So it’s highly unlikely that these guys copied them. As about Pidgin, IM-History supports it as well, but only Linux version.


Looks like simkl can’t hold a candle to im-history :)
This crud has too defective interface and functionality


Hate Linux…


Will you add support for Pidgin (Win) anytime soon?

Holt does not need any application

Holt is open for everybody now. It’s great!


Simkl is not free
