Nokia Messaging for Social Networks Beta 2 launches with Twitter support
Nokia released the Beta 2 of the Nokia Messaging for Social Networks app which is available for download on the Beta Labs website. The Social Networks free application comes with built in Facebook client and a Twitter client. Some of the features of the Social Networks app are: upload pictures and videos, view upcoming events, birthdays and import to device calendar, search friends and click-to-call / click-to-SMS / click-to-FB Email. We invite you to download and test drive this social networking client from Nokia Beta Labs. This is an early preview, currently available on Nokia N97, Nokia N97 Mini, and Nokia 5800 devices, we will support more devices in the future. Unfortunately we were not able to use the client on our Nokia N97 because of some kind of bug that did not allow the app to connect to the Internet, so there will be no screenshots (shame on you Nokia). But hey there is always a cool promo video for you to watch before you give this app a test drive.

Gravity on Nokia N97 - It simply rocks!Gravity on Nokia N97 Gravity on Nokia N97 Gravity on Nokia N97
Gravity is the first fully-featured and native Twitter client for the S60 platform. It supports multiple accounts, Twitter Search, Laconica, posting of pictures via MobyPicture & TwitPic and wraps everything into a gorgeous looking interface.
This is what the site says and for a $9.95 application to find it's way into the S60 freeware blog it seems like a big deal and it really is. The first thing was to download Gravity and install it on our test phone the Nokia N97 and to be honest we did not expect much. After all it was presented as a Twitter client... But once we installed it, we found out it was more then that.

Nokia built in email client + GMail = HeadacheNokia built in e-mail client Connecting to Gmail Updating mailbox

Here goes the story: Nokia N97/Nokia N96 both using the built in email client, my email account is on GMail, as most of the people out there simply for the fact that the simple interface of GMail combined with the powerful features can not be found anywhere else (my personal opinion). So after configuring the built in client for GMail i try to download my mail. Unfortunately on both phones I am unable to get the last emails and this problem has been going on for a while. The "Updating mailbox" message stays on for a few minutes but there are no newer mails on the phone. After trying whatever I could think of, I decided that there seems to be no solution on my problem, so I decided to drop a line to Nokia Support. And guess what, four weeks and no answer. Just perfect!

PhoneTorch - Use your phone's LED flash as a torchPhoneTorch - Main screen PhoneTorch - Settings PhoneTorch - Morse code

How many times you have found yourself into the dark looking for the keys or something else. How many times you have used the camera key or the bright display of your mobile phone to light up the floor and find what the hell are you looking for. Well, I personally did all of those things so many times that I stopped counting. So now, there is a simple free application called PhoneTorch that uses the screen of your mobile phone or the LED flash of the phone's camera as a torch so that you can have the LED flash on for how long you like. There is nothing much to say about PhoneTorch for S60 5th edition mobile phones as the Nokia N97 and the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, except that it does what it is supposed to do very well. Although you might thing you don't need this application, PhoneTorch might save you some trouble when it comes to it.
