Earlier I wrote about the all-on-one messenger app Franz. I really liked the application, but unfortunately the developer is going way too commercial. The latest Franz version looks like a 1997 spareware application. So it was time to say goodby and goodluck.

There are multiple alternatives which I’ve tried. The best one is Station. It’s completely free, supports 500+ applications and as a bonus it has 1Password integration for those who use this as password manager. Now hope this developer isn’t going nuts and going to ask 6 euro/month.
