International calls just got cheaper thanks to “Nimbuzz Out”
We’ll start off by saying that if you make international phone calls often and merely use your phone providers international solutions, you’re wasting money and missing out. With that said, I suppose you now might be asking what solution or answer I have. One affordable choice is Nimbuzz Out. Nimbuzz is no stranger to helping people communicate. Back in my BlackBerry days I used Nimbuzz’s multi-IM app and came away rather impressed. It was a robust multi-chat app that at the time a couple years ago was starting to experiment with voice calls via the app. Much has changed in the last couple of years. Even though text based methods of communicating are increasingly, communicating isn’t limited to text based means alone.
Back in May 2008, Nimbuzz Out debuted and allowed users of Nimbuzz as well as many other social networking and IM apps including but not limited to Skype, Yahoo Messenger, etc. to place calls to one another. Again, why stop there? There are many people that don’t use social networking services. Starting today, Nimbuzz Out users can now place calls via 3G or WiFi to any country they so desire for as little as $0.02/minute — pretty darn cheap if you spend a ton of time talking to “outsiders”. Credits can be purchased from Nimbuzzout.com. Paying the exorbitant rates that local carriers charge to call abroad is a thing of the past. If calling abroad is a normal occurrence in your life, giving Nimbuzz a try couldn’t hurt.
Nimbuzz Out is currently available for iPhone/iPod Touch and Symbian devices.

Think Facebook’s Joe Hewitt giving up on iPhone development was a one time thing? At the very l east it’s a ground rule double as Rouge Amoeba has announced that they too are ceasing iPhone development on account of Apple’s App Store policies.
What exactly did Rouge Amoeba make? Their iPhone baby, [...]
**Update inside: webOS in Joe’s Crosshairs?…
Apple may be rolling out a new window — albeit small window — that allows iPhone devs to peer into the inner workings of the App Store approval process, but is it too little too late? The link in the previous sentence goes to an article I just wrote [...]
Apple adds three stage viewer of App approval progress. Here’s a couple more ideas to make it a lot better.
After over a year of developers and consumers crying out for a more transparent app approval process, Apple finally relents. Though this is a small step in the right direction, it’s far from complete and in all reality, not that useful at all. Here are a couple ideas that could greatly change that…
Several weeks back it was announced that the Sony PS3 would be gaining Netflix support albeit with one HUGE crutch being that you would need to load a physical disc into the PS3 — Every. Single. Time. Not a very well thought out plan at all. Ok, so we figured we’d [...]
I hate computer programming. Everything about it makes me want to vomit up every organ in my body while swinging over a vat of boiling hot magma. Perhaps that’s a bit extreme but you get the point. Coding iPhone apps isn’t for everyone. If you’re like me and loathe computer programming [...]
The BlackBerry Developer Conference kicked off today and RIM personnel didn’t waste any time getting to the goods. For starters, OpenGL ES support is finally coming to the BlackBerry platform (OS 5.0+). If you didn’t know, OpenGL is what gives modern smartphones such as the iPhone it’s amazing graphics in such small packages. [...]
Not being able to grab the name of a particular artist or song playing on the radio is frustrating to say the least. The frustration turns to sadness or anger when the song ends and blends into another as the DJ neglects to mention any info on the song you so desire. Sucks, [...]
We originally looked at David Guetta’s iPhone app a couple weeks ago. Though at that time I didn’t have a copy to officially review. That has obviously changed. After spending a good day playing with the app, I can honestly say that David Guetta has figured out how to make an iPhone [...]
Danish anti-piracy group “Antipiratgruppen” gets it — Giving up on chasing and prosecuting file sharers.
Label me a pirate. A renegade. A lawless scum who doesn’t care about intellectual property. That’s fine. I pay for music in one way or another. I have no qualms or regrets. Here in the states, intellectual property laws and policies are becoming increasingly anti-consumer, anti-artist, and are getting [...]
Seriously Apple, WTF?! You reject dictionary apps because little Johnny might search for a naughty word yet you approve apps such as Baby Shaker. Now you’ve stooped to the ultimate in absolute stupidity and leaves me wondering where you find these morons that run the App Store approval process. Why the [...]
