Nimbuzz, the new mobile application funded by Mangrove Capital Partners (the same smart guys that provided the initial funding for Skype) has just launched their new “talk” application for mobile all over the world.
Numbuzz is a total fredome to voice and instant messaging for your mobile phone in Pakistan. If you have an internet enabled phone, you can use nimbuzz to stay online and get connected to your friends and family members 24 hours a day. You can also make international calls at a local call charges.
The new Nimbuzz beta also supports PC-to-mobile and mobile-to-PC calls. This works with Nimbuzz as well as Gtalk and again your calls are either completely free or billed at your prevailing rate for a local call. Lastly, PC-to-PC calls are supported using either Gtalk or Nimbuzz and of course these calls are also completely free.
Making Voice Call
The experience in placing and receiving calls is quite good. From a mobile handset you simply open the Nimbuzz application, select the contact you wish to call and select call. The application then asks if you wish to dial a toll free 800 (you should say yes). It then tells you that it is setting up the call. Simultaneously, the person you are calling will receive a message that you are trying to call him. If they accept they too will get a dialog requesting permission for the phone to dial an 800#. (they should also say yes). Provided both parties say yes the call will be connected and you should be able to converse with your friend anywhere they happen to be (well, at least in thirty countries currently) for free.
You can send and receive instant messages to gTalk, yahoo, AIM, ICQ and hotmail messenger contacts
These things make this an application with a tough to beat set of highly useful and valuable features.
In any case Nimbuzz is free, the calls are free, and the text messaging is free too.
All of my friends and family members are using and enjoying its cool features. So what are you waiting for? Give it a try and let me know what you think of it.
