- a smart buddy list layout,
- Skype and local social network support,
- a time-sensitive user interface (!),
- home-screen notifications,
- and clickable URLs
… to make Nimbuzz the most sophisticated mobile social messaging application for Android handsets.
The smart buddy list layout displays information in an intelligent way, combining avatar and presence information in one, with community icon and resource information (if your buddy is online on the mobile or PC) in the same line.
The time sensitive UI is a favorite . Â It Â detects how long you press on a buddy’s name. A light touch opens their profile and a stronger touch instantly starts a new chat!
Home-screen notifications alert you on the home screen of activities such as incoming chats while Nimbuzz continues to run in the background.
Clickable URLs make for a multimedia rich chat experience so you can share YouTube videos and Wikipedia information during your chat. A browser window will open from which you can seamlessly switch back and forth to Nimbuzz.
Auto reconnect is also very useful! Â For example,Â I often leave Nimbuzz running in the background while connected to a Wi-Fi network and before I know it I’m out of range and offline to all my friends.Â To prevent this, Nimbuzz detects whenever you are out of range, and if there isn’t a known Wi-Fi network available it connects you via 3G, and vice versa.
Unique to Android users is the fact that only Nimbuzz integrates Skype IM and local social networks such as Hyves in the Netherlands, StudiVZ from Germany, Gadu-Gadu from Poland, and Giovani from Italy – we didn’t forget you guys!
