Nimbuzz Messenger is the perfect app if you’re on a limited contract or like to chat or call to people in different countries, and it’s now available for the Nokia Asha 501.
Nimbuzz supports instant messaging, and it’s easy to keep track of conversations, with threads looking just like regular text messages.

The app itself looks great, and couldn’t be easier to use. There are tabs along the bottom, letting you pick friends you want to talk to, switch between active chats, a numeric keypad for dialing, and options to give access to group chats, N-World and a lot more. Simply tap the + button at the top of the page add more friends in your contact list.
Avatars show up alongside the names of your friends and family, and small icons on the right, show you who’s online, who’s away and who’s offline.
