Nimbuzz Multi Community IM Launches on Google's Android OS

Introduces a revolutionary buddy list layout

Nimbuzz has announced the launch of its multi community mobile social messenger application for Android handsets. Unique for Android users, Nimbuzz introduces a revolutionary buddy list layout, Skype IM, a time-sensitive user interface, home-screen notifications, auto-reconnect, clickable URLs, and local social network support to make Nimbuzz the most sophisticated IM application for Android handsets.

Nimbuzz takes full advantage of the benefits of the Android platform technologies. Alongside home-screen notifications that alert the user on the home screen of activities such as incoming chats while the application runs in the background, Nimbuzz also added a time-sensitive user interface option that detects how long the user presses on a contact in the buddy list. A fast-click instantly opens the contacts profile; a long-click opens a live chat window.

These updates work alongside the auto-reconnect feature guaranteeing seamless connectivity, by instantly reconnecting whenever a connection is lost. The smart buddy list displays information in an intelligent way, combining avatar and presence information in one, with community icon and resource information, if the person is online on the mobile or PC, in the same line.

Integrating Skype IM is unique to Nimbuzz, which already supports multiple communities including Facebook, Google Talk, Yahoo! Messenger, Windows Live Messenger, ICQ and many more. Clickable URLs that make for a multi media chat experience, and the additional support for local social networks such as StudiVZ, Hyves, Gadu Gadu, and Giovani, add to the extensive feature list making Nimbuzz Android the most comprehensive mobile social messaging application available for Android handsets.

Evert-Jaap Lugt, founder and CEO of Nimbuzz said: “Mobiles are no longer just about hardware but software. Nimbuzz increases the value of the handset and enriches the user experience. Our Android version is a perfect example of what we do best, integrating Nimbuzz’s award winning service to bring the best out of each operating system and handset.”

Nimbuzz welcomes Android users to its community that grows at nearly 1 million new users per month and has recently been recognized as “Best Mobile Startup” by Techcrunch Europe, and Top Global 250 tech company by AlwaysOn Stanford Summit.

The free app is available to download from the Android Marketplace.
