Nimbuzz 1.92

Nimbuzz 1.92

Multi-network (AIM, Facebook, Google Talk, MSN Messenger, MySpace, Twitter, Yahoo) IM app Nimbuzz was updated last week. The version number was bumped up  1.92 (from 1.9).  Despite the insignificant jump in version numbers that are some major new features in this release:

  • Invisible mode – to appear invisible to your Nimbuzz contacts while you are actually online.
  • New Notifiable icon – for contacts that have the app closed but are available via push notification or Ping.
  • Mandatory phone number verification for chat-rooms
  • Faster login
  • Less data consumption We expect that on average you will consume 50% less data, and depending on how you use Nimbuzz, this could get save you an amazing 70% in data used.

Unfortunately for Boost Mobile users the new release has  issues  with many Boost phones.  On my i776, it fails to install with a Class Verification Error. On the Motorola Rambler, Nimbuzz installs but is unusable do to key mapping issues.  The left softkey action is mapped to the right softkey. I can adapt to that but the right softkey is mapped to nothing which is not good as it’s used as the Cancel key and to return from menus and chats.

The good news is that based on testing by cornel.j 1.92 does work on the Motorola i856.  Which means it probably also works on the i9 and maybe other models.  If you try it and find it works on any other Boost phones besides the i856, please leave a comment so I can update the compatible phones list. If you try 1.92 and it doesn’t work you can always go back to 1.9.
