Take the Nimbuzz survey and WIN an iPhone 3GS!
The last Nimbuzz survey gave us a great chance to get to know you. Now we would like to know a little bit more about what you think of Nimbuzz and how we can make it even better .
Simply spend a few minutes completing the Nimbuzz survey, and you could win a brand new iPhone 3GS! And I really wish I could enter as somebody stole my iPhone on Friday and I really can’t imagine spending more time without my iPhone so I suppose I’m off to the shops this afternoon !
The Nimbuzz EmotiContest is over and we have a winner: Nemanja Djurdjevic with the “jawdropping” emoticon! He is the new proud owner of the Nokia 5800. Congratulations!!
With more than 60 entries and a lot more than 100 emoticons, it was a pretty hard job for our design team to pick the winner from all the good designs that were submitted.
The teamhave picked Nemanja considering:
- the quality of the design
- if it’s a new emoticon, not a variation of the ones we already have
- how good it expresses a feeling
- how good it fits the Nimbuzz Emoticons style
We really hope the Nemanja will send us a picture with him and his new phone, so we can all see who is the creator of jawdropping emoticon.
After posting the the EmotiContest Semifinalists blog post we have received A LOT of new entries over the weekend that influenced the new top of the Semifinalists. Here are the entries that made it in the second semifinal, and from which we have picked the winner:
Good news for all the Nokia and Nimbuzz fans out there, Nimbuzz is present in the Ovi store and ready for download for your beloved Nokia mobile phones [Ovi Download link].
In the last year many of us realized that Apple’s App Store model was a huge success and with 1 Billion applications downloaded in less one year, few can contradict this.
The idea spread out really quick and soon after, big names of the mobile industry went in the same direction. Nokia, Google, Sony (and a lot more to follow) created a unique space for their users to find the best applications for their mobile phones. From what we can tell each of the stores is a success: App Store, Android Market, Ovi Store and also Getjar.com where Nimbuzz was the was last month.
Soon after Nimbuzz was present in the Ovi Store, Yash Maheshwar from Oviapplications wrote a really detailed Nimbuzz review that we are really happy to share with you: Nimbuzz – The one app to IM them all!
If you are looking for an IM solution, look no further than Nimbuzz. It is your one stop solution for communicating with your friends or calling your loved ones abroad using Skype.
So if you want “The one app to IM them all!” go to Ovi store and download Nimbuzz now!
If you want to keep up with the latest Ovi applications reviews we recommend you to follow on Twitter and for the Nimbuzz’s latest and greatest you can follow us on Twitter: @nimbuzz

Now let’s put them in the Spotlight so everybody can meet the guys that help us make Nimbuzz better.
This month they share what are the 3 features they would add to Nimbuzz and why.
Leila, who runs Nimbuzz on her iPhone, Blackberry and Web says: “The obvious choice for me would be to have Twitter integration. I am a “twitaholic”, with over 10,000 tweets in just over a year, so this would make things so much easier for me.
