 Going to give it a try.

Jazmac says:

N-Word is a feature now? 

Residing says:

It should read:  N-'World' (as per the app description). 
Just a typo by the author of the post.

Jazmac says:

Thanks. I didn't know what it was.

Apoc says:

I was wondering the same thing, scratching my head, how is this even right??

You're late.

Pricop says:

I've been waiting for a decent Yahoo! Messenger app, this looks promising, only if I can conect to yahoo... -,-

Lx23 says:

Used to have this app on my N97. Glad it's finally here.

pankaj981 says:

This does not support push and does not run in the background, atleast for gtalk. Tried the run under lock screen feature, does not work either. Going back to octrotalk.

arunroc says:

Its a cool chatting app

HeyCori says:

Wished it supported AIM.  Guess I'm gonna have to stick with IM+ for now.

tommohammed says:

Yes! An app that isn't black and boring! Love this UI!

TMavZR1 says:

Other part need to install this app to be able to use.

Deejay Ron says:

It says: N-World on my app. I also agree, it needs to run in the background and push notifications. I'm also unable to purchase gift credit through SMS yet and can't connect to yahoo messenger. Hope the issues get fixed soon, other than that, it's a pretty decent app. Fixing those issues would make it an excellent app.

tranthe says:

Yeah, it can not connect to Yahoo messenger. What a bug! How did Nimbuzz team test the app before publishing it to the marketplace!

slyjr2 says:

I can't connect to yahoo on this or IM+. Something wrong with yahoo not the apps

TMavZR1 says:

Yup, had same issue install Yahoo. Left it out since we hardly using it. All I care about is MSN Messenger, now my wife iPhone can utilize her MSN messenger.

ChrisLynch says:

I thought IM+ couldn't pass certification because it offered access to WLM, and Microsoft strictly prohibited it?  Yet, Nimbuzz passes as it connects to WLM?  What gives?  I'm not bashing the app; never used it.  Just seems a bit strange, yet at the same time doesn't given some of the Marketplace certification missteps.

Localhorst86 says:

It seems Microsoft has dropped this issue. IM+ has now been able to connect to WLM again for quite some time.
EDIT: I must admit, I haven't used IM+ since Mango came out as I do not see the point in having two apps that connect to WLM and Facebook Chat as these are now built into the OS. For the same reason, I do not see the point in even trying this nimbuzz app, WLM and Facebook Chat work fine for me. And for the few people that don't use either, I can still use whatsapp.

TMavZR1 says:

Installed on my wife iPhone and i must say it is beautiful design. Removed IM+ (free version) ;) No need to install it on my Nokia 900 since we utilized MSN as text already. Woohoo Thanks!
