Slick is a Symbian instant messenger in beta testing. While the test lasts, the application is free to use.
The program has an excellent, uncluttered user interface, comparable with fring (free) and IM+ (not free). However, the feature set of Slick is rather modest when compared to what the free and paid competition has to offer. File transfer on Slick is buggy, and you can't use Slick for voice chats like you can do with its free competitors fring and Nimbuzz.
Networks supported by Slick: GoogleTalk, MSN, ICQ, Yahoo, AIM, and Jabber.
Slick version 0.44 has a fixed picture shooting menu, and comes with a new feature: its interface shows the theme of your phone.
