Good news for all the Symbian users out there: we have a new Nimbuzz update ready to download!
As always we have worked hard and developed some great new features that will make your life so much easier. Here is what’s new:
- Online presence to your phonebook – see which of your phonebook contacts are online with Nimbuzz
- Free SMS invites – Invite all your friends for free to Nimbuzz via SMS !
- Faster and more responsive kinetic scrolling – for touch screen devices
- More options for Twitter refresh frequency
- Control Nimbuzz connectivity while in roaming
Now let’s take a closer look and learn a little bit more about them.
Online presence to your phonebook detects which of your phonebook contacts also have a Nimbuzz account and gives you the option to add them as Nimbuzz friends. Why is this awesome? Because:
- it allows you to discover friends and call them for free (also chat and share files)
- it’s the first step to a smarter and more intuitive phonebook – you see which of your phonebook contacts are online
Free SMS invites. Do you want more of your friends to join Nimbuzz? Now you can invite them for free via SMS, just go to the phonebook tab->select one of your contacts-> Invite-> Send Free SMS invites and it’s done. Simple right !
Twitter refresh frequency just got better. Now you can set it to 3, 5, 10, 15, 30, 45 minutes or set it on manual, to always get up to date info. Default is set to 15 minutes – for a balanced battery life ;).
Controlling Nimbuzz connectivity while roaming let’s you choose whether you want to connect on Nimbuzz while using data roaming. By default we set it to Off to prevent crazy data charges and save you money.To enable it simply follow these steps: Options->Settings->Connection->Data roaming and choose On. However, if this is off you can still connect via Wi-Fi if available :).
On top all these improvements we have also fixed minor bugs and various performance improvements so you can enjoy a better overall experience.
The new Nimbuzz 2.4 is available for Symbian mobiles like Nokia 5800, N97, E71, E51 and many many (many) more :D! Download Nimbuzz now!
PS: The app will available for download in OVI and Getjar sometime in the next 2 weeks.
