New: Nimbuzz for Symbian comes with message delivery notifications

June 23rd, 2011

The new Nimbuzz 3.2 for Nokia Symbian phones is ready to download.

This brand new version packs really awesome features that will make chatting even more fun. Here is what’s new:

  • Message Delivery Notifications will display checkmarks when your message arrives on your friend’s phone.
  • New Favorites Tab offers quick access to your  favorite contacts so you can start chatting and calling faster.
  • Reintroduced the # shortcut – by pressing the # key you will go to the top of your contact list.
  • Auto-start – offers the possibility to automatically start Nimbuzz when you turn on your mobile phone.

Now let’s talk a bit more about these features.

The new message delivery notifications will display:

  • 1 check mark (✓) when your message was successfully delivered to the Nimbuzz servers
  • 2 check marks(✓✓) when your message was successfully delivered to the person you are chatting with. Please note this does not indicate that your chat was read by the other person but only delivered.

You will find the new Favorites tab on your home screen next to the Contacts tab. Here you can add the friends you always call and chat.  This will make it faster and easier for you to start chatting with them.

One of the features you requested the most was added in the new 3.2 version: # shortcut.  This is very useful for Nimbuzzers with a lot of friends on their list because it allows you to jump at the top of the contact list no matter where you are in the list. To test it simply go at the bottom of your list and press the key # … Nice right :D .

Last but not least we added the auto-start feature. This is turned OFF by default and if you would like to activate it you need to go to: Settings -> Connection -> Auto-start -> ON. If you enable it than next time you will turn on your mobile phone Nimbuzz will automatically start and run in the background.

Besides these awesome features we also fixed some annoying little bugs you reported ;)so the overall user experience is better :D .

NEW Nimbuzz Symbian: 9 Reasons to be excited!

May 15th, 2011

Nimbuzz 3.01 for Nokia Symbian phones is ready to download. You can get it fromNimbuzz.com.

Are you excited? Good, because you have 9 awesome reasons to be :P .

Here is what’s new:

  1. Improved Call Quality – thanks to peer to peer call connectivity.
  2. More space for your chats - for full screen  chatting experience.
  3. Chat bubbles – that bring an iPhone like chat experience to your (Nokia) Symbian phone.
  4. Custom wallpapers in the chat screen – choose a color or an image from your gallery to display as background for your chats.
  5. Custom color for the text font in your chat screen
  6. Call Quality Indicator – so you can check the expected call quality before you make a call.
  7. Free Avatars – choose new and exciting avatars for your profile picture from N-World
  8. Last Seen Online - shows you the last time your friend was seen on Nimbuzz.
  9. Fast group selection – straight from your contact list.

On top of all that we have a new crisp app icon (which we like very much :D ).

Curious to find out more about the new features? Read below…

The new improved call quality is possible thanks to our new peer to peer calling system, which aims to make a direct connection between the two mobile devices. Your calls will be connected faster and the probability of dropped calls  enormously reduced. We are also working on bringing HD call quality in the next version ;) .

The call quality indicator checks how good/strong your internet connection is and displays the expected call quality. This information will appear in the calling screen, right before you place the call.

One of my favorite features is the fast group selection. With a simple click on the Friends Bar, situated right below your profile pic in the contact list, you will get a pop up with all the available groups so you can easily view only your friends from Facebook, only phone numbers or your favorite friends.

This update offers you more space inside the chat screen, by hiding the top navigation bar and the menu bar. You can do that with a single click on the icon with the two arrows, as shown in the image below ;) .

We hope you will enjoy this update as much we do and we wait for your feedback in the comment section below ;) .

The new version is not yet in Ovi store but it’s coming in the next few days.
