imo instant messenger receives update that enables NFC and location sharing

While I love the concept of NFC on my HTC EVO 4G LTE, its actual uses have been somewhat limited so far: I’ve used it several times to make Google Wallet purchases, and I’ve used the Android Beam feature only once. So if you – like me – are looking for more ways to utilize NFC, you might be interested in imo instant messenger.

imo is a multi-protocol instant messaging service that’s compatible with AIM, Windows Live, Skype, Facebook, Google Talk, Yahoo Messenger, Jabber, MySpace (that still exists?), and more. But the latest update now adds the ability to share your profile with other imo friends using NFC, as well as making it much easier to share your location.

I personally don’t really IM people anymore, but this is still a nice one-app-fits-all IM client, and NFC seems like a great way for it to stay relevant. To try out the app for yourself, or update it if its already installed, just hit the link below.
