Minor update for Nokia Chat: bug fixes and feature updateFri, 2008-11-14 17:28
Written by Kristian Luoma, product manager of Nokia Chat
It's time to make the semi-monthly update for releasing fixed errors we've found so far. This package resolves issues related to memory consumption and incoming messages caused trouble during usage of predictive text input.
Inspired by the recent Beta Labs announcement made while back about Nokia Friend View, we wanted to refresh the client by tiny feature update too. We tweaked the send location feature just a bit. Now you should see your friend's profile picture on map instead of the pin. In case your friend has kept the status up-to-date, making calls works from the maps (may work differently depending on the maps version).
By the way, have you tried out the widely available different service bots that interconnect IM with social communities? I'm referring to the services like from FriendFeed IM, Enjit, Twitt'd, Jaiku, Ping.FM or have you come across any service that runs on IMified that you love? There's lots of others too I'm sure - would you like to share which ones do you find useful?
As Nokia Chat is XMPP-compliant, it just happens to be that the services that support Jabber networks (e.g. GTalk) work on Nokia Chat too. For instance in the case of FriendFeed IM: just add your Nokia Chat account to FriendFeed as a "Gtalk" service (in this context more of a synonym of Jabber-service, I think) - and voila, it works! At least, this is how I subscribe to my friends' social network updates and keep my own FriendFeed status is up-to-date these days :)
Being open is sweet.
