Nimbuzz for AndroidNimbuzz for Android

Nimbuzz just dropped version 2.0 of its popular Android VOIP application, bringing a slew of new features. Here's what's up: 

  • NimbuzzOut will allow you to make cheap international and local calls to mobile phones and landlines over the internet without using your minutes! The new keypad located on the NimbuzzOut screen lets you access your entire phone book so you can make quick calls to anyone outside your Nimbuzz network.
  • A Dialer Tab: call mobile phones and landlines via NimbuzzOut, SkypeOut or any of our SIP partners (Google/Gizmo5, Sipgate, Xeloq, T-Pad, VoIPax, Gulfsip, IPS, Badatel and more)
  • Friend suggestions see which of your phonebook contacts are already using Nimbuzz so you an add them to your network. The more you add the more you save! ; )
  • Facebook connect: more stable connection, improved the security of your Facebook data, and allow you to see the status message of your Facebook friends.
  • New options in the settings, allowing you to choose different layouts, account credentials and profile information.

And best of all, Nimbuzz is still free. Check out video of it in action, plus download links, all after the break. [Nimbuzz]

I'd say this is like Fring, with less delay in calls, more stylish and with continued Skype support. ;) I quite like it. It disconnects from Skype every now and then it seems, but not often enough to get seriously annoying. Never has during a call.

Too bad Nimbuzz doesn't let your phone sleep so leaving it open renders it a battery hog if you want to use it for IM. And so does fring.

It does not bother anyone that the app has access to your personal info, can intercept outgoing calls, directly call phone numbers and access system tools? Are'nt these apps getting to be more like malware?
