Tabbed navigation at the bottom for quick, menu-less interaction. “Send money to your friends, manage your account and […]

Here’s an awesome app from BetaLabs – Nokia Big Screen!

Here’s a really good alternative to the awesome SPORTS TRACKER app on Symbian. It’s all accelerometer based so there isn’t a GPS tracking side to it to calculate actual distances/speed (or show you your track path) but it’s good enough for basic monitoring. Isn’t there like a recommended 10,000 step minimum? It’s free to download […]
