SnapTalk is a network instant messaging solution that is available both on the Mac and Windows. It doesn't require an active Internet connection, and in fact any computer connected to the network using TCP/IP can be used to log in and message any other computer on the network that is running the application.

SnapTalk can be installed in under a minute, and right after installation, all the users that are using the app will be listed, without any additional configuration. All the users that are connected to the service will be listed on the right part of the screen, and their online status (on and off). You can create groups with certain users if you want.

To message another user, you simply double click on his name and start typing. The application can keep an archive of all your messages, which makes it easy to go back to previous messages when needed. There is support for attachments, and there aren't any restrictions on the types of files that you can attach.

In short, SnapTalk is a nice solution for business and other users who need to communicate with users connected to their private network quickly and easily. It can come in handy for in-house communications when the Internet goes down.
