Video: Vertical and Horizontal App Page Swiping for Symbian with Grid Touch – Free at the Ovi Store – demoed on Nokia N8
Remember this idea post and video from last year?
The original concept was not just for homescreens but also for your apps.
Whilst nothing of the sort has appeared on Maemo, Thanks to Offscreen Technologies, lucky Symbian owners (do you think it’s confusing not to name particular variations of Symbian, i.e. ^1, ^3) can try out a new grid style menu with Grid Touch. At the moment it performs horizontal and vertical page scrolling, which by comments of the N900 post would be the best way to go about it as the 9 direction would certainly confuse.
Offscreen Technologies have gone all out with this, providing a new look status bar, search bar with new portrait keyboard, instant grid overview look
What’s totally most awesome is that Offscreen Technologies are giving this excellent app away for free at the Ovi Store! Vaihab from TheHandheldBlog has a great demo video to share.
Cheers to Jim for the heads up!
