free phone calls app - Nimbuzz

Nimbuzz though not common as our previous apps, it has gained its own fair share of success. After its launch, it worked together with Skype to promote cross communication between the two apps. However, Skype disabled the feature, and this saw Nimbuzz lose its popularity and a fair share of clients. As of 2016, Nimbuzz has an active customer base of more than 150 million active users in over 200 countries.

With this app, you can make free calls, share files, send instant messages as well as play social games on the N-World platform.
