Nokia N900 Vuvuzela App for Maemo 5

| June 30, 2010 | Reply

@benjezzy has created his first ever App: “Vuvuzela” for the Nokia N900. This infamous droning sound has (dis/)graced your TV screens whilst you watch the World Cup. YouTube’s even added a Vuvuzela button to celebrate it, masking out any audible video sound with what appears to be a tsunami of bees. It’s not the most loved of “musical instruments”, but certainly one of the most memorable. (Symbian users can buy alternative Vuvuzela App for £1 on Ovi Store)

You can change the colours of the vuvuzela and background…why? To match your team colours of course.

On Benjezzy’s to do list for this app:

-And a menubar with an about button….
-Give possibility to change the image of the Vuvuzela
-Maybe add more sounds?
-Add a “Pause” button?
-Definitely look into a portrait solution

There’s more chatter on about this app – why not let @benjezzy know what you think of it?

You can download it from the App Manager but you’ll need to have Extras Devel (soon just Extras) catalogue to find it. Click here to find out more about these catalogues.

(Will update with own screenshots later when I find out why my catalogues aren’t refreshing)

What a dog thinks of the vuvuzela.
