Nimbuzz is a multi-network (AIM, Facebook Chat, Google Talk, MSN Messenger, MySpace, Twitter, Yahoo) IM app. It was updated to version 1.93 last week. According to a post on the Nimbuzz blog the new features in this release are:

  • Message Delivery Notifications will display checkmarks when your message arrives on your friend’s phone.
  • Access to free avatars and bots via N-World.
  • Clickable links inside the chat screen
  • New way to insert emoticons : Open a chat -> Menu -> Insert emoticon -> Enjoy

I’ve never had much luck with Nimbuzz on my  Boost Mobile phones and this one is no exception.

On  my i776, it installs and runs and the keys are mapped correctly. I can log in but shortly after I do I get the message “Sorry we had to disconect you from Twitter. Please try again latter while we are looking into it.” Most of the time after I get that message the app locks up, although occasionally I can get past that message and Nimbuzz works.

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.

Because the previous version of  Nimbuzz was reported to work on the i856, i776 and i465 I’m posting this one for users to try. Please leave a comment letting me know if it works on your phone so I can update this post. If it doesn’t work for you, try version 1.9 which seems to be more compatible with Boost phones.
