One of the best way to make free calls if you’re in a WiFi area is by using Fring. However, it looks like there’s a new kid on the block with similar features, called NimBuzz. This new app released a week ago allows you to use Skype for free calls, chat, messaging, and more!
The first you have to do after downloading Nimbuzz is register an account which takes 10 seconds. After that you can then sign into your regular messaging networks, such as MSN, Google Talk, AIM, Yahoo!, ICQ, Jabber etc. On top of this you can also sign into Facebook and MySpace too to take advantage of Nimbuzz’s built in social networking.
The one feature I wanted to test out was the quality of free voice calls via my Skype account (SkypeOut). I did a couple test calls to some friends and I must say the quality was excellent, even better than Fring. What I can’t figure out though is how to access a dial pad to call numbers on the fly. I was only able to access my current Skype contacts. Either way, it’s hands down the best quality of any VoIP WiFi calling app on the iPhone. Period.
Nimbuzz also offers the ability to chat via landscape mode, which is nice. Now you’ll be chatting with your friends faster than ever before. If you’re looking for an excellent and free voice calls over WiFi app, be sure to download Nimbuzz. Let’s hope their future update will include a dialpad for Skype!
Let me know if you’ve been testing out Nimbuzz. What’s your favorite feature?
