An intuitive instant messaging application that allows users to join various chat rooms or create new ones, chat with their buddies using a webcam and microphone, and create lists with accounts to be ignored

editor's review






Crown IM is a lightweight instant messaging application that helps users send messages to their friends whether they are online or not and manage chat rooms.

A new account can be created by giving details about name, gender, nickname, password, location, email address, and age. Plus, you can select a secret question and answer for future authentication issues.

Crown IM sports a clean and straightforward interface that gives users the possibility to add new friends to the list, customize the text messages in terms of colour and size, choose between a wide range of emoticons, and copy the information to the Clipboard or print it.

What’s more, you can introduce timestamps into conversations, save the current settings as the default ones, perform basic editing operations (cut, copy, paste, or delete), as well as send files to other users by using the built-in browse function, so you cannot rely on the “drag and drop” support.

Other important options enable you to chat with your buddies using a webcam and microphone, join various chat rooms which are organized in categories (e.g. music, art and entertainment, religion and spirituality, shows and events, ethnic groups, education, games), or create your own chat rooms by specifying the category, subcategory, room name, admin code, rating details, welcome message, and lock code.

Just like any similar instant messaging application, this tool allows you to select the status (e.g. online, busy, phone, away) or add a custom message.

There are several configuration settings designed to help you make the program run at Windows startup, save the position of the window, save and archive all messages, disable alert sounds, create a list with users to be ignored, and set up the webcam and audio parameters.

All things considered, Crown IM offers a handy set of features for helping communicate with your friends, and join or create chat rooms. Thanks to its intuitive layout, it is ideal for beginners and professionals alike.
