Access Google Talk & Facebook Chat From One Single Android App
To be connected with friends all the time is a desire that everyone has. With a smart phone like Android we have many options to do so. There are many Free apps available to do this, like Nimbuss, Im+, ebuddy etc. All these apps provides advance features like, group sharing, multiple Social Network chat, group chat, VOIP services and many more.
If you are using a high end android device then you might enjoy the above mentioned services without further thoughts. But the problem that I faced with a mid range device like Galaxy Ace or Galaxy Y is that these apps run a bit slow. Probably while switching to other chat window when several chats are in progress. Another thing about big services is that you will be needing to create an account with them first. The fact about having multiple chats is that though you are provided with several services, you will be using only few of them. Facebook and Gtalk stands at top of the list.[alert-note] Top 5 Mobile Instant Messenger Chat applications [/alert-note]
