The first feature that strikes you is the number of services supported by Nimbuzz. It supports an impressive number of 15 communities for IM including the major ones like Windows Live, Yahoo, Facebook, Google Talk, AIM, MySpace, ICQ. Along with the communities, It also supports VoIP with over 14 SIP accounts, as well as an option to configure a custom SIP account.
Once your accounts are configured, you reach the contact list. The contact list in Nimbuzz is a single list showing your contacts from all the configured services alphabetically. Which means you no longer have you switch between services / apps to check on which service a friend of yours has come online. All your contacts, irrespective of the service, show up in a single list. Perfect.
Chat Window :
The interface of the chat window is what really pulled me towards Nimbuzz. The UI is clean and simple. The color combination makes it easy to differentiate the messages sent by you and the messages received by you. Emoticons are also supported, although I did not find them to be really pretty or cute.
Internet Calling :
Nimbuzz supports SIP protocal for VoIP calls. Though what would excite most users would be the fact that it supports making calls using SkypeOut too. Users can choose which call provider should Nimbuzz use when placing calls to the contacts in the phone book or any other number.
Along with sending & receiving messages, Nimbuzz also supports sharing files & photos. You can either send already clicked photos, or take a new photo to send to your friend.
Another feature in Nimbuzz lets you backup your entire phone book on their servers, so in case you loose your phone ( Hope that you don’t ) or happen to loose your contacts due to some problem, you can restore them all from Nimbuzz easily.
If you are looking for an IM solution, look no further than Nimbuzz. It is your one stop solution for communicating with your friends or calling your loved ones abroad using Skype.
