Video: MeeGo handset UX on Nokia N900 – More widgets and multitasking

| August 22, 2010 | Reply

Here’s another look at the latest build of MeeGo handset UX on the Nokia N900. [click for previous vid] Scrolling looks buttery smooth (and fast, no more endless flicking) in some places though choppy in others. At 07:39 you’ll see “speech bubble” what looks to be a threaded messaging of sort, and at 10:40 you’ll […]

Creating Qt Apps using the Nokia Qt SDK for Symbian (demoed on a Nokia N8) and Maemo from desktop app to mobile app.

Symbian has been tarred in the past for the complexity of app development. The issue in the past was the difficulty in making Symbian apps in comparison to iPhone OS. Although native Symbian is powerful and allows you to create deeply integrated apps, it’s difficult to use at the beginning. Solution? Nokia Qt SDK, which […]

Here’s a little GEM of an application that’s free on Ovi Store for your Nokia N900. This is by far the most promising user interface for a music player I’ve ever come across on a Nokia handset. It’s called “instinctiv”, download it from the Ovi Store on your N900. The player supports wma, flac, ogg, […]

We’ve seen this Finnish phone before running Moblin and a Qt Interface to demo a possible MeeGo UI (or at least a reference design).  We saw it most recently demonstrating the new MeeGo handset UX on video. Chippy, aka Steve Paine of CarryPad has it for the next 48 hours! This is Aava Mobile (also […]

Video: Nokia N900 and Maezer – Accelerometer Maze game for the Nokia N900

| July 6, 2010 | 4 Replies

Maezer is an app created by Blaizzen (from talk.maemo.org) for the Nokia N900 that uses the accelerometer to move a ball across a 2d maze. I prefer this to the more glamorous accelerometer type maze games as it’s less about the skill of moving the phone at the appropriate time and angle (and such loosing […]

Here’s something coming soon for the N900 (uploaded by sureshchande): an alternative to Documents to Go (30 days trial for viewer, plus I think there’s a paid editor version somewhere) on Maemo 5. It’s useful just as an office viewer (if you don’t fancy editing). I often have to check over excel files, word, ppt, […]

Secret Exit, maker of Zen Bound has released “Spin” for the Nokia N900. It’s available at the Ovi Store now for £3 (UK).  For some reason, it’s apparently only 2.99 EUR. (£2.46 – but do you guys pay tax on top of that?) Anyway, zehjotkah has uploaded a video demo of Spin on his N900. […]

@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 […]

Last time we posted about painting on the N900 was with the basic N900 sketch app, subject: Avatar – my attempt: – meh (thanks nonetheless for the kind comments :P) There’s an app for the N900 called MyPaint which gives those with the skill tools to create their masterpiece.
