#N9Hacks: Live Clock Icon (App)

#N9Hacks: Live Clock Icon (App)

| January 6, 2012 | 9 Replies

I am liking these Live Icon hacks that have been popping up for the N9. First was the calendar and now we have a Clock. (Read somewhere more are on the way.) The clock displays the time. If the screen is not locked, the icon will be refreshed every five minutes. Simply install the app, […]

#N9Hacks: Calendar Feed (App)

| January 5, 2012 | 8 Replies

The Events screen on the N9 is very helpful in showing whats happening in your life, whether it be social updates, meetings and reminders for the day, or as an overview of notifications awaiting response. The sad thing is though, the Events screen only displays the calendar information for the current day. It is handy […]

#N9Hacks: Dynamic Calendar Icon (App)

We brought you news about a dynamic calendar icon demoed on the Nokia N9, a few weeks back. It is fitting, now that there is an easy install for it, that I am including it as part of my N9Hacks series. The calendar icon resembles that of iOS, changing to display the current date. At […]

Like most community developed hack apps, they can be done using Terminal. Apps just make it easier for those not comfortable with modifying system files. App developer Vesuri has made and app known as “Home Screen Settings”, which simply adds to the settings menu. Once installed, navigate to Settings>Applications>Home Screen.   Not only can you […]

#N9Hacks: Hide App Shortcuts + Enable Terminal without Dev Mode (Terminal)

| December 31, 2011 | 34 Replies

Do you have pre-installed apps you never use but can’t delete? App icons taking up too much space? I know I never use User Guide and it is just sitting there taking up icon space. I used Terminal to hide it, by making the shortcut a “hidden” file. Here’s how; (Obviously replace userguide with the […]

#N9Hacks: Call UI Mod (Terminal)

| December 31, 2011 | 14 Replies

Today’s hack has to do with the Call-UI. I came across a Mod that I like, mainly because I found the buttons too small for my fingers. What this mod does, is makes the answer, reject and silent buttons bigger, as well as enlarging the contact’s avatar. I didn’t like how big the avatar was […]

Tommi Laukanen strikes again with yet another awesome step forward with QT QML projects. Inspired by Flipboard for iPad (which he says would be the one app to make him get one) he’s sought about to mimic Flipboard’s page turn effect with QML script. Flipboard for iPad looks great huh? I wonder what other aspects […]

Video: Kasvopus Qt Facebook App for Symbian^3/Maemo 5 demoed on Nokia N900

| March 7, 2011 | 13 Replies

Yesterday we saw Kasvopus, a new project from Tommi Laukkanen that brings a very promising facebook client to Nokia Devices. The only one so far comes by way of the frighteningly bad Social App produced by NOKIA. There’s quite some potential with Kasvopus, hopefully it will receive more updates and more features, but for now […]

Tommi Laukkanen is at it again, this time taking on the Facebook app (which no one else, not even Nokia have done a good job on. It pains me how terribly overlooked the Facebook app has been on Nokias. You would think it was some hobo social network with 5 people on it the way […]

After a few months off the grid, I thought it best to offer a short post to show Jay, Andre and the rest of the MNB gang that I’m still around… With my next upgrade coming up in the first few months of 2011, I’ve been pondering my options for my next handset. I’m keen to stick […]

Man I so totally want one of these AR Drones! Check it out with the  powered Nokia N900. You’ve got not only a phone controlled quadropter, it sends live video feedback directly to the phone. That’s not the cool thing. This is a project by Kate Alhola to learn MeeGo and Qt Quick whilst having […]

The N900 Tagline: Is there anything this phone CANNOT do?! As you might know the N900 has already been taking host of Android for quite some time, also getting Froyo before many other supposed “Android Phones” :p. (Heh, All the other manufacturers are lucky Nokia’s not making Android phones as we all know they’d whip […]
