Nimbuzz puts all your VOIP contacts into one call list and provides IM too – powerful stuff.
by on March 15, 2010
Like Fring, Nimbuzz gives you free mobile calls and instant messaging all centred around a single friends list. But there’s more support for networks than Fring – with ICQ, AIM and Gadu-Gadu in addition to the now standard MSN/ Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo!, Google Talk, and Facebook.
Like Skype, Nimbuzz also has an additional service to make cheap calls internationally, called NimbuzzOut while the app supports free calling over Wi-Fi connections only.
There’s also support for SkypeOut calls, too and the app also lets you see your up-to-date Skype calling credit. Nimbuzz for Symbian boasts four tabs – your buddy list, Chats, Phone Calls, and Messaging. You can sort your buddy-list by favourites, so your favourite contacts always appear at the top – or change this depending on how you want to view it.
You can also choose ringtones for new chats, messages, and calls. We like how, unlike Fring, Nimbuzz keeps the separate identities for all the different IM networks – although it uses a single buddy list, network-specific icons are put next to each of the names. Nimbuzz is one of the most powerful IM and voice apps available.
