Nimbuzz Releases Free Push Multi-Network IM App in App World

nimbuzz 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?

You can find Nimbuzz in the App World at this link or at The app is made for OS 4.6+ devices so I am not sure if it will work on older devices.

  1. sounds really good, im going to give it a shot!

  2. sound great. hope it can run smooth in my bb bold.

  3. No Jabber Support = no sale.

  4. Hi, does anybody knows if it works without BIS or BES, like a standard data plan?

  5. I just installed it. So far, it seems pretty good. Of the bat, I notice that is does not support AutoText which is a serious shortcoming to me (and should be to any self-respecting BlackBerry user). Also, it is pretty barebones and does not support either alerts for when a contact comes online or saving chats which are both distant seconds to a stable connection to all services. I am going to use it for a while & I will report back on any connection, battery or memory issues.

  6. and the lack of AutoText is really, really a pain. I have to capitalize “I” and insert apostrophes. It is just barbaric.

  7. No love for OS 4.5+ devices? There are *still* a lot of us out there …..

  8. In what way is this better than Instango (which works fine on < 4.6)?

  9. I’m getting ‘The item you selected cannot be displayed. Do you wish to save the item?’ on the website. Any ideas?

    • Another weird thing – the site recognized I’m on an 8300 and I get the prompt to download a .cod with the above error.

      On the other hand using the appworld link says it isn’t available for my device or carrier.

      Tobias, is the 8300 supported? If not, will it be soon?

  10. Hi all,

    Tobias from Nimbuzz here, thanks for your comments. This is our first release and rest assured, we will improve upon it and add the requested features like auto text. An update is coming shortly and we appreciate and additional feedback from you guys.

    Please feel free to drop me a line of leave feedback at

  11. Works great on Bolld 9000 with 5..348 Beta OS. The only thing i miss is, that i cant remove and block contacts from the list.
