Freeware: Converter for Nokia N97/5800/5530/S60 5th Edition

This is a nice touch based alternative to the default S60 converter. It’s free at the Ovi Store. Prominent number pad – very useful particularly for touch only use (and this app only recognizes touch input). Default S60 converter can of course use the keypad/keyboard and keypad touch (though only visible when you click on […]

You’re probably aware of these two apps already – again just another highlight. Shazam and Midomi are similar music discovery engines that are currently free the Ovi Store. Get the app to listen to a piece of music – sends that recording online then immediately gets back to you with the details. Shazam is free […]

Here are some popular online flash files for your  N97/5800/5530- basically most S60-flash capable devices, although some will only work with Touch/keyboard/D-Pad (though an onscreen D-pad is available). All app menus are accessible via touch It’s advisable to set flash quality to “low” for increased frame rate on the games and then set to full […]

How do you access your contacts? (How Nokia should improve contact search in S60 5th edition)

How do you access your contacts? (How Nokia should improve contact search in S60 5th edition)

| August 6, 2009 | 4 Replies

Vote as applicable. One of the easiest tasks on Nokia phones was getting to your contacts. Type a few letters of the name as you would in a text message, i.e. via alphanumeric keypad, and possible names are suggested, narrowing down the choices the more letters you typed. No more lengthy scrolling. Annoyingly, we don’t […]

Last week when I was checking out the Ovi Store, 9 of these apps were on my recommended page, with the 10th one app’s related download section. You may have seen them elsewhere before, on different download locations, but now they’re all available through Ovi (well at least versions of them anyway) – great for […]

This application is a must have for anyone who travels frequently (or at all) on a train. Whenever I needed to travel by train, I used to go to www.thetrainline.com. You can access it from your S60 browser directly or you can choose the mobile version, m.thetrainline.com, which is more economic on the data and […]

Free Game: Match'em for Nokia N97, 5800, and Samsung i8910

| July 11, 2009 | Reply

From moubail.com is this free “match’em game”, where the aim is to match multiple icons on the screen. It’s touch based (though a little flakey) but for N97 users you can also use the D-Pad. It’s a little harder than it looks, as you’ve got to put some thought into what order you’re going to […]

| June 24, 2009 | 6 Replies

The Carphone Warehouse (a.k.a. The Phone House) is “Europe’s largest independent mobile phone retailer, with over 1700 stores”, so it is somewhat, a little bit of an achievement for the 5800 to be the number 1 pay monthly handset, leaving Apple’s iPhone in 2nd and Samsung’s Tocco Ultra in 3rd. From the blurb: “Introducing the […]

Ignoring the 7700 and 7710, here’s the third and latest touch screen phone from Nokia; the 5530 Xpress Music. It may look familiar to you – because it has surfaced once as a possibly successor to the 5800. But then it was deemed as a poor Chinese knock-off of the 5800 instead of actually being […]

My-Symbian has posted some excellent comparison shots of the N97 with the E90, E75, 5800 and Samsung i8910 (Omnia HD). A few interesting selections below: 1 – E90 and N97 E90 is huge, but that’s because of that big screen and that spectacular keyboard. Not the best looking phone though. You’d think the reason Nokia […]

| May 15, 2009 | 6 Replies

The Time Machine app for the Nokia 5800 is both a stop watch and a countdown timer. When the countdown reaches zero, an alarm sounds. Pretty useful if  you’re cooking something or as a parking meter alert. Yeah, you can use the general alarm clock but it’s easier to put in “n” minutes countdown and […]
