What happened to the Nimbuzz messaging app
Tested: Nimbuzz competes with Fring in mobile messaging
For some time now, Fring has offered the option of using various instant messengers, Skype and SIP Internet telephony providers via mobile phones. Nimbuzz [link removed], based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, now offers a similar product. Like Fring, Nimbuzz software is free.
While Fring is available for Symbian and Windows Mobile smartphones and, recently, in a beta version for the Apple iPhone, there is Nimbuzz for Symbian and Java mobile phones. Thanks to the Java support, the range of devices is significantly larger than that of the competition. This means that owners of simple and outdated cell phones can also use the software. A list of supported devices can be found on the Nimbuzz homepage [link removed].
In contrast to Fring, Nimbuzz also offers a PC version of its software. In addition, web-based use on a PC or Mac is possible - without installing any additional software. We tested Nimbuzz both web-based and with the PC version and with the mobile version for Symbian smartphones.
Skype can currently only be used mobile
The registration works within a few seconds. Then you can log into the Nimbuzz server. The additional messengers can then be set up. It is noticeable that ICQ can be configured web-based and on a mobile phone, but not via the PC software. Once the user data has been set up, the ICQ contacts also appear on the PC.
It is different with Skype. The service can only be used on a mobile phone. The Skype contacts cannot be seen with the PC software. Other supported services are AOL Instant Messenger, GoogleTalk, Hyves, Jabber, Windows Live Messenger and Yahoo! Messenger. Compared to Fring, for example, there is no possibility of using VoIP providers with the SIP protocol - even though Nimbuzz is expressly intended for mobile telephony over the Internet in addition to chatting.
