Follow up blog post: Holiday contest winners

November 18th, 2010

Lars and MarkLast year we organized a contest for our NimbuzzOut users to win: a fantastic holiday to their most called destination and one year of unlimited NimbuzzOut calls on us.

Lars and Mark were the happy winners and we thought would be nice to catch up with them and see how they use Nimbuzz as a part of their daily lives.

Turns out they use Nimbuzz and NimbuzzOut to save money on their calling bill and stray connected to family and friends.

Lars, originally from Denmark met his French wife in England. Now they both live in Syria. Due to their international roots they are both calling friends and family in Denmark, France, Algeria, as well as in other countries.  Lars told me: “So for a couple like us that are very “globalised”, an application like Nimbuzz is great. My wife also found that your rates for Algeria are better than those of Skype! ;-) ” .  He won the first prize and we offered him a voucher to cover his holiday expenses, but instead of using all the amount at once  he divided the voucher and had several smaller vacations and a longer one in Istanbul :) .

Mark is originally from America and now lives in Panama. A lot of his friends and family are still in the US and Mark told us that he regularly uses  NimbuzzOut to call his friends and stay in touch with his  family back home. Mark still has another month and a half of free NimbuzzOut calling.

What the Skype/Nimbuzz Breakup Means To You

October 25th, 2010

Nimbuzz Skype Switch Off

Yes, it’s true. Skype will no longer be accessible via Nimbuzz starting October 31, 2010. Why? Skype asked us to remove support for their service.

In 2008 we started working on creating a free mobile communications service for the way you live in the online and mobile world, today and in the future. A service used by everyone, no matter what handset, where they were located, or how they wanted to communicate. All your friends in one place, combined with free mobile calls, chat/IM or SMS/texting.

Read on for more on Skype’s decision.
