I came across this really cool app today called ‘Nimbuzz’. Nimbuzz lets you call, chat, message, and send files on the go, for free. It combines all your buddies from Skype, Facebook!, MSN, Yahoo, ICQ, AIM, Google Talk and more. One login, one contact list, all accounts.

The app lets you see who’s online and where, call an individual or make a group-call, 1-on-1 chats or initiate a group chat, offline messaging, and ability to send photos as well as voice messages. Best of all - Nimbuzz Mobile is free to download and use. Nimbuzz will not charge or bill you for anything. (However, since Nimbuzz uses your internet connection, incremental data charges from your provider will apply.)

I tested the app out on my wi-fi connection and it works superb!

Some quick facts:

  • Save Money: Instead of calling minutes, Nimbuzz uses the internet to let you make free international calls to your buddies. You can also register your VoIP account to call your friends on landlines and mobile phones.
  • Locate your Friends: Share your location and retrieve the location of your buddies on a map. Great for arranging face to face meetings.
  • Make yourself heard: If your buddies are offline, let them know you’re trying to get in touch by sending them a "Buzz". It will start Nimbuzz Mobile on their mobile phone!!!
  • Never lose your Contacts: Use the Phonebook to back up and restore your contacts. Contacts will be backed up online. Comes in handy when you have lost your mobile phone

To download Nimbuzz, click on the image below to be directed to their site and click on ‘Get Nimbuzz’. If downloading to your computer, from the mobile selection screen select HTC and then Touch Pro. It gives you the VGA version of the app which works 100% perfectly on the X1’s WVGA screen.

    Did you try Palringo? If you use it only for instant messaging it's very good, and it's constantly being developed.

    Have seen that before... I see that they've added new features!

    The main factor for me in Nimbuzz is its support for Skype - even if u you take out voice calls... (especially since every1 at my office no longer uses MSN or other chat tools to communicate but mainly skype...)
