@kraistus84 sends in this tip that’s ready for publishing: Remember grid Touch? It has now been given the Qt treatment :D.

I know y’all are crazy for some Qt apps, so here’s a great replacement for the native Symbian menu system.

Some of might remember an app called Grid Touch. Well, now the boys at OffScreen Technologies have yet again, true to their form, updated their previous app to Qt. And BTW, it’s free!

Let me present to you the Grid Touch 1.5 Qt. It’s an replacement app for those whom are tired to the native Symbian menu system. Grid Touch 1.5 consist of 9 different menu pages which can be previewed all at once or can be zoomed in at will (or touch of your finger to be precise). Given the fact that this app is written in Qt, it’s o’so smooth and fluid. There’s a nice little elastic transition effect between pages. Subtle, but nice.

Here are the main features of Grid Touch 1.5 Qt:

  • Menu key integration (can be switched off at will)
  • You can hide apps from the Grid Touch menu
  • You can organize the order of the apps easily
  • Wallpaper can be changed (there are many different wallpaper, but apparently you cannot use your own picture as wallpaper)
  • You can rename the pages
  • Search via text

Only downside I noticed was that, when you pressed the menu key, you could see a glimpse of the native menu before entering the Grid Touch menu.

All in all, it’s a great choice over the native menu system, IMHO. I suggest you to try it out.
