I’ve been heading up this site for nearly 5 years now and I’m still surprised about some of the excellent stuff we’re stumbling on. Mundu IM is just one of those products, and I’m shocked that we’ve only just found it. v4 is now available – it’s an excellent messaging application which lets you connect to Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo, AIM, ICQ and now also Google Talk and Jabber.. all in one app! There’s now photo sharing, file transfer, email notifications, smart group management and stacks more.
You can download a five-day trial here at mundu.com or buy it for (wait for it) just $11 !! That’s only £5.70! I had a bit of trouble downloading the CAB file (thanks to IE7) so had to grab it via Firefox, however it’s well worth it – just copy the CAB to your phone and run it to install.
Geodesic – the people behind Mundu – do even more cool stuff. Mundu Radio will let you tune into thousands of radio stations on your Windows Mobile, including the ability to create and edit playlists. Mundu Speak will give you free or discounted calls across the internet using VoIP (Voice Over IP) – straight from your Windows Mobile. Both of these applications are free. I reckon it’s well worth keeping an eye on the guys at mundu, their software is top drawer stuff. Seriously, this is really, really good stuff and we’re incredibly impressed. Have a read of the press release below for more info.
