February 28th, 2011

All Nimbuzz USA followers!

This is a special announcement letting you know that the Nimbuzz USA blog will be put on hold for a few days. Why?

The reason is that I (Daniel Torres) will be taking on new challenges, and won’t be able to update the blog any longer. :( But no worries!

The Nimbuzz USA blog will be back soon with all the exciting news and updates about new apps, new mobile technology, and of course, about Nimbuzz! :)  So stay tuned!

If you have any comments, issues, or questions please do not hesitate to contact the main blog or you can also reach us out on Twitter and Facebook.

This is a great opportunity to thank all of you who have followed us during the past year and a half, helping us improve our product and content.

ICQ support returns on Nimbuzz

February 9th, 2011

Yes!  ICQ is back on Nimbuzz :D .

Though last year we had to pull the plug on ICQ, it didn’t stop us from looking into ways of collaboration.

After further discussions ICQ agreed to let us continue to offer support.  This time we get to offer you an even better experience and access to the full ICQ API.  This is especially handy for Nokia Symbian and Blackberry users for which ICQ does not provide a mobile version.

We know for sure our friends from Russia and Germany will be really happy to have ICQ back again!

Thank you all for sticking with Nimbuzz even when we couldn’t offer ICQ and thanks for your support via blog posts, comments and Twitter.

Please tweet the post and spread the good news to all your friends :D !
