Nimbuzz 2.0 for Android released. NimbuzzOut, better Facebook integration, and more user customization!

Share

I’ve found myself hovering back and forth between eBuddy and Nmbuzz for my multi-IM needs over the last few months. While I preferred Nimbuzz both for it’s UI and overall feel, constant drop outs especially on Facebook were a pain. eBuddy on the other hand doesn’t have these problems, but it isn’t exactly the most beautiful app to look at either. Perhaps Nimbuzz 2.0 can help me with my dilemma, hmm?

Fresh off the shelf, Nimbuzz 2.0 brings some pretty big enhancements that cater to a wide variety of people. But there’s no doubt that the biggest new addition is the in-house “NimbuzzOut” VoIP solution that promises cheap international calls to anyone in your phone book without using your minutes. Other notable features include:

  • Dialer Tab: A new dialer tab further pushes this whole vocal communication move, allowing Nimbuzz users plenty of options via Nimbuzz’s SIP partners (Google/Gizmo5, Sipgate, Xeloq, T-Pad, VoIPax, Gulfsip, IPS, Badatel and more).
  • Improved Facebook integration with Facebook Connect: Further bolstering the social aspect of Nimbuzz, Facebook integration is claimed to be more stable and rock solid (I’ll let you know how that goes) with the introduction of Facebook Connect.
  • Friend Suggestions: Friend Suggestions searches through your phonebook and alerts you to contacts whom are already using Nimbuzz.
  • New user settings: More user customization options via different layouts, ability to fine tune your account credentials, and edit your profile information all within the app.

There’s certainly enough to warrant the big jump to the 2.0 numbering. Now I’ll have to spend the next several days testing it all out to see if it’s really as good as it’s claimed to be. From the looks of things so far however, I’d say Nimbuzz is on the right track. Head on over to the Android Market, try it out for yourselves, and let us know how it goes.
