Nimbuzz is a multi-platform instant messaging app that makes keeping in touch with all of your friends a less time consuming task than it usually is. This is because it allows you to chat with your friends and keep track of their updates on more than a dozen different social networking sites, all from one all-inclusive dashboard. The networks that are supported include all IM protocols such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, MSN, ICQ, Google Talk, Jabber, and many more.
Nimbuzz started out as a mobile platform app and has become quite popular through that service. But now the developers are trying to bring attention to the PC application that has the same excellent functionality as the mobile app. Although Nimbuzz does not have quite as many tools on offer as other applications of this same type, the plus side is that it is a simple and therefore a resource light application. And what’s more, it does exactly what it promises, which is more than more programs can boast. But if you are looking for an instant messaging app that has custom backgrounds, animation effects, or other bells and whistles, you will have to look elsewhere.
Although Nimbuzz is not that fancy, it does have some extra interesting options besides its basic text chat functionality. It has the ability to organize contacts by groups, as well as the option to share files with them even if they are not online. This useful tool is thanks to a temporary storage system that Nimbuzz has recently added. And being mainly a mobile IM app, the program of course lets you to keep your contacts synced with your mobile device, for ease of use across multiple platforms.
So despite the fact that it is simpler than other tools of the same genre, Nimbuzz really is a great app that gives you solid and good quality functionality where it matters most: helping you keep in touch with friends across a large number of different social networking sites and IM platforms.
