Video: Mobile Documents beta for Symbian^3 – Cloud boosted push email at Nokia Beta Labs!

December 30, 2010 3 comments

Mobile documents is a great app that lets you see heavy email attachments with ease; large emails and large documents are no longer a mobile-web waiting issue.

  • Mobile picture viewer handling 71MP images on the fly
  • PDF viewer that supports pinch and zoom, FULL SCREEN view (why the one installed on N8 can’t go full screen, what a fail), and also text flow – with just the text in a single column.
  • Share attachments from email without prior downloadand reupload. It is an instant send.

Get it from Nokia Beta Labs!

Note, you must sign in first with your Nokia account to try betalabs stuff.

Videos: Assassins Creed HD demoed on Nokia N8 (available at Ovi Store – 168MB!)

December 30, 2010 6 comments

Here are some blurry video demoes of assassins creed demoed on the Nokia N8 by chavero115, cyberdri and Camb078.

The first two are very, very blurry but the third by Camb078 from  blog-n8.fr is a little clearer.

You can get this from gameloft OR the easier route from Ovi Store. My bills have increased as it’s just too easy to purchase stuff from there :p. You WILL need to download this via WiFi as it is HUUGE! 168MB, much bigger than Avatar.

It’s priced at 3GBP or som how 3EUR. Apparently some of you are seeing these priced at 2.5CAD. Hmm…I’d like some price unity.

It supports multitouch controls and is in full 3D.

Video: Syncing Gmail Calendar to Symbian^3 (demoed on N8)

December 24, 2010 4 comments

In this video demo TheRacerex shows us how to Sync Gmail Calendar and Contacts on Symbian^3 devices like the Nokia N8, as well as the different ways that you can access your GMAIL email on the N8.

For Calendar Sync: Settings>Phone>Mail>Mail for Exchange and pop in your details. Email, Password, put user name as the email and then MfE server as m.gogle.com.  I can’t seem to get calendar to Sync. A long route to get your gmail info is to export from gmail and import into ovi calendar (and sync via ovi Calendar).

Alternatively there’s an app called rainlendar that actually does show calendar syncing

Spider-Man: Total Mayhem HD available for Symbian^3 from Gameloft

December 22, 2010 4 comments

Spider-Man: Total Mayhem HD is available for download for Nokia N8/Symbian^3 users.

It’s not yet on Ovi Store but it is on GameLoft’s site from your device.

I got there via wapshop.gameloft.com and a specific T-Mobile link. It may be different with your particular network (you’ll have to chose or the site will automatically direct you).

I haven’t played it yet so I don’t know what it would look like on N8. I’m not sure if it will be like the iPhone version (like most of gamelofts offerings have been for Symbian^3) as the download is only 3MB (though it is titled HD like their other 3D games).   No wait, wait…., I just checked – Real football 2010 HD is 1.25MB and avatar is 0.70MB which I know is HUGE (Over 100MB download).

I want to wait till it appears on Ovi Store – I don’t know how gameloft purchasing/redownload works. But you can get it now if you want from Gameloft for £3.00

Cross Platform App, TrueCaller, Available for Symbian^3

December 16, 2010 11 comments

TrueCaller is a highly useful caller ID application that’s available on Windows Mobile, Android and iPhone. S60 users have been enjoying for this app for quite a while and now you can get it for Symbian^3 handsets. What is TrueCaller?

TrueCaller is the most used Caller ID application on the market with social media integrations and intelligent call blocking functionality against spam calls.

There are a whole host of innovative features including:

  • Caller ID and Caller ID+: Get the name, number and location of your incoming caller
  • Social Caller ID: << nice. Sometimes people inform of status whereabouts/current moods so you know if they’re available to talk and how to approach them. “e.g. chasing after the dog” might mean they’re out – (or many other better examples)
  • Update Phonebook: Updates your phonebook details that may not be filled in, e.g. address
  • Call Filter: Block Spam callers
  • Tweet Caller
  • SMS Pop Up
  • Number Search
  • Maps and Directions

More on these features below. There’s also supposedly a “Mysterious Feature” that will be unveiled in January 2011 which coincides with the 50+ improvements coming to Symbian.

Maemo 5 TwimGo twitter client coming soon to Symbian^3 (Awaiting Ovi Store approval)

December 13, 2010 5 comments

If you’re a Nokia N900 user, you might have downloaded TwimGo – a rare twitter client for Maemo 5.

It’s made it’s way onto Symbian and creator Tommi Laukkanen has submitted it to the Ovi Store.

It’s not yet in Qt Format (N900 version was in Qt Web Run Time) but Tommi Laukkanen says the next major revision will be.

It looks very thumb friendly in portrait. I wonder if it will sport the same double column as seen in the Maemo 5 version when in landscape. I’ll certainly be looking forward to giving it a go. It still only has Trill and mighty Gravity to live up to.

A video of the Alpha 3 Maemo 5 version is included below

Toshl Expenses Tracker made entirely in Qt – Now available for Symbian^3 on Ovi Store (#N8 #C7) Manage your finances with ease!

December 12, 2010 16 comments

Here’s a neat little app we first encountered with the Nokia N900 and Maemo 5.

  • It’s a very, very easy to use expenses tracker to help manage your finances. At this time of the year, with the plastic and cash flying at Christmas, this app is a must have download to keep an eye on your money!
  • It’s available now (Symbian^3) for FREE on the Ovi Store.
  • It’s entirely made in Qt which the makers have said Nokia people were extremely helpful with. Overall, thumbs up for Qt especially over previous alternatives. More on this at the end of post.
  • I’ve tried it on the N8 and it’s a great app (more on this below).

This doesn’t just sit on your phone. You can sync your data from your other phones with the PRO account service which not only means you can monitor your data from any phone or PC but you’ll also get analysis graphs of your expenditure to give a visualisation and new perspective of your spending.

Thanks to Matic Bitenc we have a discount code for the first 20 people that gives you 50% off the one year service.

Video: Phone Arena’s Nokia C6-01 720p Video Sample and Video review

November 23, 2010 1 comment

PhoneArena‘s got their hands on the C6-01 and have got some video samples and a video review.  The C6-01 is the cheapest of the Symbian^3 offerings but it doesn’t skimp out too much and is very good value for money.

  • Build quality wise PhoneArena were more impressed with the C7.
  • They seem to have a hang up over the screen size and the general thickness of the C6-01, and say the CBD whilst looking good with deep black and good colours, the technology is wasted on the C6-01.
  • BTW the considered slim X6 was 13.8mm, the C6-01 is 13.9. The Nokia 5800 is 15.5mm. The C6-01’s shorter stature makes it look more plump.
  • Camera on C6-01 they say appears to be the same seen on C7. Above average noise handling, good detail at 8MP and LED lights up well without bleaching.

Software wise, it’s Symbian^3 which will be pretty much the same experience on N8 and C7 (except for that issue with the smaller display). S^3 is praised for the combined GPU that allows smooth 720p video playback

Video: Air Hockey Game demoed on Nokia N8 for S^3 and 5th Ed Free at Ovi Store

November 20, 2010 2 comments

Air Hockey. You versus the phone as you try and score a goal with the virtual air lifted puck. First to 5 wins and each round goes to a higher level with slightly harder opponents.

It’s really enjoyable (I love Air Hockey at arcades!) and great for those short distractions. It’s well worth a download.

The only things I’d like to see is the option for 2 player mode with multitouch support of course (though that would rule out S60 5th users).

Oh it’s meant to be played in portrait but was recorded in landscape.

You’ve got two price points with Air Hockey. An Advert-supported FREE game or £3.00 (variable by country) ad-free.

Above was the ad-supported version and you’ll note the presence of adverts (which you can skip or click to open an advert page). You’ll also need to have an internet connection. You don’t have to view the ads, just press skip.

DOWNLOAD FROM THE OVI STORE:

BTW for comparison here’s a paid version demoed on 5530 by TheBossAkib.

Note that you get cheers or awws depending on scoring or letting a goal in. It also looks a little faster here but part of that was due to my bad cam and video conversion (E.G. look at the image trail of my finger)
