The user interface of Symbian chat and VoIP application Talkonaut looks better, the number of bugs has gone down, battery consumption is reduced, sound quality improved, and SSL encryption now works with every Jabber server.
Talkonaut lets you chat and call with Jabber (including Google Talk), ICQ, MSN, AIM and Yahoo, and you can call with just about every VoIP service that uses the SIP protocol.
Unlike Nimbuzz and fring, Talkonaut won't use your phone's contacts list, and it won't work with Skype. But Talkonaut lets you store multiple SIP VoIP settings, which the competition does not, so it's a useful addition to Nimbuzz and/or fring. Its smiley support in chats is very good too.
