Nimbuzz .. The Ultimate Instant Message Client

I got introduced to this powerful software package the other day by my cousin Jeff. A big thank you Jeff.  There have been many IM (Instant Message) Clients that have come and gone in popularity. I can remember a long time ago using the once famous IM program ICQ, and then came along MSN Messenger, followed quickly by Yahoo, and as the years passed many more IM services have come online, Over the years I have switched  from one IM service to another because it seemed everyone was following what was hot, and not sticking to a single service.  I found this to be a big problem, because I had to switch to whatever service my friends had switched to, in order to stay in touch.
During those years, there were other IM clients that were released by third party companies that were designed in such away that it would allow you to sign into several IM services at once.  But I found the few that I tried to be pretty unhandy. So eventually I gave up on the IM world .  I do at times use Google Chat, but that is because its' build into my gmail, and for the most part I only use that to communicate with another coworker.

But along comes Nimbuzz to save the day!!!

"IM your friends across all popular instant messaging and social networks and have a real chat, in real time, for free!
With one secure log-in you can access Windows Live Messenger (MSN), Yahoo, ICQ, AIM, Google Talk, Facebook, MySpace, Gadu-Gadu, Hyves and many more. Plus, you'll never forget a name or number by storing all your important contacts in the Nimbuzz Phonebook."

I downloaded the PC version and I am extremely impressed with how clean the interface is, and how easy  it was to setup.  They have really though of everything! It even will tie into the facebook chat system, so your don't have to login to facebook to chat with your connections on there.  It even has support built in to make phone calls to land lines using VoIp technology. You need purchase credits to use this service. For calls to Canada it costs about 0.02 a minute.

I have my Nimbuzz tied into Windows Live, Google Chat, and Facebook. If you use any kind of IM client, this little app is one I would strongly recommend.

Nimbuzz is available for any smart phone, PC or Mac, and it has a web version as well.
