Nimbuzz has launched its multi-community mobile social messenger application for Android handsets. Uniquely for Android users, Nimbuzz has introduced what it describes as a revolutionary buddy list layout, Skype IM, a time-sensitive user interface, home-screen notifications, auto-reconnect, clickable URLs, and local social network support.
The smart buddy list displays information in an intelligent way, says Nimbuzz, combining avatar and presence information in one, with community icon and resource information, if the person is online on the mobile or PC, in the same line.
Alongside home-screen notifications that alert the user on the home screen of activities such as incoming chats while the application runs in the background, Nimbuzz has also added a time-sensitive user interface option that detects how long the user presses on a contact in the buddy list. A fast-click instantly opens the contacts profile; a long-click opens a live chat window.
Nimbuzz supports multiple communities, including Facebook, Google Talk, Yahoo! Messenger, Windows Live Messenger, ICQ and many more. Clickable URLs that make for a multi media chat experience, and the additional support for local social networks such as StudiVZ, Hyves, Gadu Gadu, and Giovani, add to the feature list.
Mobiles are no longer just about hardware, but software, says Nimbuzz Founder and CEO, Evert-Jaap Lugt. Nimbuzz increases the value of the handset and enriches the user experience. Our Android version is a perfect example of what we do best, integrating Nimbuzzs award winning service to bring the best out of each operating system and handset.
The Nimbuzz app is available to download free from Android Market.
