Best S60v5 Applications for Nokia 5800
With the release of Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, we saw the next version of the OS,Â S60v5 SymbianOS 9.4 which has opened gates to lots of innovative mobile apps and games.
It’s main feature is the touch support, and powers all the new touch-screen phones from Nokia. Not many applications are available for S60 v5, so I compiled a list of popular apps that you can use with your Nokia 5800.
Nokia Handwriting Calculator
Handwriting Calculator is a showcase of Nokiaâ€™s new handwriting recognition technology. It allows you to calculate handwritten math expressions with a touch-screen Nokia device (and with a Windows PC).
Touch Piano-Turns your phone into a musical instrument. Play music using virtual keys. There are special sound effects including piano, organ, violin, flute, guitar and drum etc.
SMS Timer allows you to schedule SMS/MMS messages to be sent on a future date and time. The application functions exactly like the standard messaging application allowing you to define multiple recipients.
Read and respond quickly to your e-mails – Get your Gmail messages anytime, from anywhere. Once you have Gmail on your phone installed, there were only one or two clicks. Your messages will be opened almost immediately.
Nokia Drawing Board
Draw your favourite drawings with the styrus in this free app.
Windows Live Messenger
Now you can chat with your Windows Live Messenger freinds, and browse other Windows Live features on your Nokia 5800 or any other S60v5 device.
Smart Guard protects all your private information (e.g. Messages, Contacts, Videos, Pictures etc.) both on the phoneâ€™s internal memory and on the memory card. Thus it is visible only to the one who holds the passcode.
Scenetone is a music player that is able to play old module formats such as Soundtracker, Protracker, S3M and XM. Also, Commodore 64 .SID files can be played. Scenetone also supports generating of .WAV files to a fixed location in the file system to be used as a ringtone.
The application provides a number of drawing options that can be selected from a toolbar. There are two toolbar options, CAknToolbar and a custom floating toolbar. All application graphics have been implemented as SVG-T icons. The example application has been developed for S60 5th Edition and touch UI.
Nokia Step Counter
Nokia Step Counter does what it says on the tin: it counts the number of steps you take by analyzing how you ‘shake’ your phone. Since most people have their phone with them everywhere they go, it is natural to use the accelerometer in an S60 product to track your daily activity.This is actually the S60v3 version but it seems to work on S60v5 phones.
The ultimate security application for your phone. It not only helps you track the lost phone but also ensures full security of the data on the device.
