Nimbuzz has announced the launch of their chat buddy developer program. Nimbuzz is a free multiplatform IM and VOIP client that allows users to chat and talk worldwide for free, as well as buy credits to make outgoing calls to standard phone lines.
Nimbuzz is a truly multiplatform communications suite with clients on mobile, tablets, Mac, PC and web. Chat buddies are essentially bots that are sorted by topic that users can chat to receive up to date information. Chat buddies are very well suited to the mobile, as they have a similar feel to chatting with friends.
This developer initiative is expected to help brands, publishers, and independent developers get access to the 90 million Nimbuzz users from over 200 countries. The CBDP allows developers to build chat buddies across various verticals such as Cricket, astrology, shopping, games, news, besides utilities such as ticketing, movie reviews, classifieds and more.
To develop your own chat buddies, visit the Chat Buddy Developer Page.
