Nimbuzz let us know that they have launched their BlackBerry app in App World. They claim to be the “only native multi-IM app and the only one with Skype support, among Facebook, Yahoo, AIM, Google Talk, MSN etc” but that depends on how you define “native” since IM+ does many of the same features. Still Nimbuzz is totally free!
The new Push support saves battery and allows you to get homescreen notifications easily. They also now have 10 million users with 40,000 new users every day which is very impressive. Still other than Kevin I don’t know anybody else using the app… Are any of you?
