In July, TMCnet reported that Nimbuzz has launched updates for both iPhone (News - Alert) and iPod touch application and also unveiled a brand new desktop client for Apple Mac computers.
Nimbuzz is a mobile social messenger, combining instant messaging, geo-presence and VoIP.
The free application is available on the mobile, PC and Web, for instant messaging, location sharing, group calling, group chat, and file sharing across popular communities and the new updates will enable the product to work on Mac desktops and laptops in addition to the iPhone iPod touch and a wide range of other mobile handsets.
Nimbuzz officials claim that the firm is already enjoying a “top 10” ranking on all iTunes AppStores in Europe, Latin America and the Middle East, including regular No. 1 “What’s Hot” positions in influential iPhone markets such as the U.K. Its app for iPhone and iPod has achieved massive penetration among European customers.
With the new Mac Desktop client and the iPhone, Nimbuzz update hopes to expand its dominance. As a natural step in the evolution of Nimbuzz platform-specific development and support strategy, the launch of the comprehensive Apple (News - Alert) suite is designed to capture the future growth potential of this platform.
