  • Beautiful design
  • agree
  • Started loving windows phone
  •  Going to give it a try.
  • N-Word is a feature now? 
  • You ain't funny
  • It should read:  N-'World' (as per the app description). 
    Just a typo by the author of the post.
  • Thanks. I didn't know what it was.
  • Hahahaha
  • I was wondering the same thing, scratching my head, how is this even right??
  • You're late.
  • I've been waiting for a decent Yahoo! Messenger app, this looks promising, only if I can conect to yahoo... -,-
  • Used to have this app on my N97. Glad it's finally here.
  • This does not support push and does not run in the background, atleast for gtalk. Tried the run under lock screen feature, does not work either. Going back to octrotalk.
  • Its a cool chatting app
  • Wished it supported AIM.  Guess I'm gonna have to stick with IM+ for now.
  • Yes! An app that isn't black and boring! Love this UI!
  • Other part need to install this app to be able to use.
  • It says: N-World on my app. I also agree, it needs to run in the background and push notifications. I'm also unable to purchase gift credit through SMS yet and can't connect to yahoo messenger. Hope the issues get fixed soon, other than that, it's a pretty decent app. Fixing those issues would make it an excellent app.
  • Yeah, it can not connect to Yahoo messenger. What a bug! How did Nimbuzz team test the app before publishing it to the marketplace!
  • I can't connect to yahoo on this or IM+. Something wrong with yahoo not the apps
  • Yup, had same issue install Yahoo. Left it out since we hardly using it. All I care about is MSN Messenger, now my wife iPhone can utilize her MSN messenger.
  • I thought IM+ couldn't pass certification because it offered access to WLM, and Microsoft strictly prohibited it?  Yet, Nimbuzz passes as it connects to WLM?  What gives?  I'm not bashing the app; never used it.  Just seems a bit strange, yet at the same time doesn't given some of the Marketplace certification missteps.
  • It seems Microsoft has dropped this issue. IM+ has now been able to connect to WLM again for quite some time.
    EDIT: I must admit, I haven't used IM+ since Mango came out as I do not see the point in having two apps that connect to WLM and Facebook Chat as these are now built into the OS. For the same reason, I do not see the point in even trying this nimbuzz app, WLM and Facebook Chat work fine for me. And for the few people that don't use either, I can still use whatsapp.
  • Installed on my wife iPhone and i must say it is beautiful design. Removed IM+ (free version) ;) No need to install it on my Nokia 900 since we utilized MSN as text already. Woohoo Thanks!
  • Interface is not so smooth. Needs improvements.
