Good news for iPhone users who have been waiting to use the Nimbuzz mobile instant messaging and VoIP client — it’s finally available to download for free.
It offers free voice calling over a Wi-Fi connection to users on Skype, Yahoo! Messenger, Windows Live Messenger and Google Talk, among others, as well as instant messaging to a whole host of other services.
New features include the ability to chat in landscape mode – the advantage of this being that you get to use the wider virtual keyboard that’s a bit easier to type on – plus support for regional social networks, personal messaging, and information about who is online and where they are.
The usual drawback about third-party applications not currently working in the background applies, meaning it’s going to be tough to receive calls and messages without having the application open all the time, but hopefully one day Apple will fix that with its “push” services.
If that sounds like something you want, go and grab it from the iTunes Store: Nimbuzz
