Chat app company Nimbuzz has unveiled its messenger API and launched a new initiative called Chat Buddy Developer Program (CBDP).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, etc.
"This initiative is expected to help brands, publishers and independent developers get access to the 90 million Nimbuzz users from across 200+ countries," says the official blog of the company on the announcement.
Nimbuzz has collaborated with several brands and publishers to increase its catalogue of Chat Buddies. For instance it has tied up with IBNLive for news update, Cricbuzz for live cricket update, Twitter for tweeting from within Nimbuzz, Vantagetrade for stock updates, Wikipedia for ready-information, YouTube for searching & viewing videos, IMDB for movies reviews, Car Dekho for car prices and reviews, Price Dekho for price comparison and Future Dekho for astrology updates.
