Video: Vertical and Horizontal App Page Swiping for Symbian with Grid Touch – Free at the Ovi Store – demoed on Nokia N8

Remember this idea post and video from last year?

9 homescreens on the N900 – all accessible in one swipe

The original concept was not just for homescreens but also for your apps.

Whilst nothing of the sort has appeared on Maemo, Thanks to Offscreen Technologies, lucky Symbian owners (do you think it’s confusing not to name particular variations of Symbian, i.e. ^1, ^3) can try out a new grid style menu with Grid Touch. At the moment it performs horizontal and vertical page scrolling, which by comments of the N900 post would be the best way to go about it as the 9 direction would certainly confuse.

Offscreen Technologies have gone all out with this, providing a new look status bar, search bar with new portrait keyboard, instant grid overview look

What’s totally most awesome is that Offscreen Technologies are giving this excellent app away for free at the Ovi Store! Vaihab from TheHandheldBlog has a great demo video to share.

Go download Grid Touch from the Ovi Store now!

Cheers to Jim for the heads up!

      This is the lite version, I suppose. For a full fledged version, it won’t be free anymore.

        Yup, I guess so. But it’s good as long as they improve the UI, then I’m ready to pay

    It is a nice effort and all but, unless one has like 4 pages or more apps installed, it really doesn’t do much but to hog up some memory.
