Nimbuzz hits Android marketplace

Nimbuzz is a simply brilliant instant messaging service for multiple platforms — and it’s now available for the growing legions of Android users.

Instant messaging is nicely integrated into the operating system with Google Talk — but, not everyone’s on that… indeed, if you’re anything like me you’ve got friends on each of the major services that aren’t going to budget any time soon.

So a multi-network compatible IM client is rather useful.

The Nimbuzz team are rather proud of the fact their service offers some rather unique points on Android:

Only Nimbuzz intergrates Skype IM and local social networks such as Hyves in the Netherlands, StudiVZ from Germany, Gagu Gadu from Poland, and Giovani from Italy.

StudiVZ support doesn’t mean much to me, being British. But for the millions of German users, it’s a boon.

Speaking of millions, Nimbuzz are adding a million unique users a month at the moment. Good news if you’re an investor. My favourite feature of Nimbuzz? I love that I appear online in Facebook and can use Facebook chat from the client.

I’ll need to download it for my Android handset…

    nimbuzz for such a high profile company sure put out a SHIT CLIENT for android, works ok on WIFI,
    but completely fails to work reliable on 3g/2g/edge/gprs with 19 disconnects per hour for me. Tried on various carriers.

    That's not good feedback. I'll need to give it a go. It's fantastic on S60.

    well have installed it on my stock htc magic, it still disconnects and reconnects a few times like 2-4 an hour, been a bit stable, does not seem too bad on battery.

    ok i have used nimbuzz for android for a few days not and its settled down a bit.
    a few disconnects, but it seems to handle it well. (what i hate, that stupid help bot, cant delete it, it cant help me at all). What i like even better 🙂 THE NEW EBUDDY client for android…. even lighter and better use of battery. nimbuzz eats the battery a little more.

    I tried eBuddy but it drains my battery and the UI s*cks. Nimbuzz is better.
