Current Version: 2.0.8 (June 15, 2010)

Imagine a fusion of Skype (video conferencing and audio phone calls) and Adium (multi-protocol instant messaging), but add support for multi-protocol text messaging, social networking, file sharing and email, and you have VoxOx.

VoxOx is not a typical Mac OS X "Cocoa" or "Carbon" application, but rather it was written as a cross-platform application using the portable Qt/Mac framework, similar to Google Earth. That said, it functions quite well, and it's worth a download.

The software is now in a free beta cycle, but it is being developed by an corporate VoIP company (TelCentris), whose plan is to ultimately sell an expanded version of the product for professionals.

While VoxOx requires you to register with its service (which requires confirmation via an SMS messaging service), this only enables its advanced call routing and answering service functions. The other functions will still work with the software in unregistered form.

The latest version of 2.0.8 introduces the following new features:

  • Fix: crash on startup
  • Fix: Facebook IM issue where messages are returned to messaging window after an hour.
  • Fix: freeze after receiving new chat
  • update: VoxOx license agreement in installer

Also, if you have an older Mac, be sure to check out the "Classic" applications page for more options.

Finally, take a look at ALEMIA if you think you know that name of an application, but aren't quite sure.

These are applications that are newer and of potential interest, but which I haven't yet selected for permanent inclusion. Have a look, and let me know if you think they deserve to be part of the permanent collection!
