Free S60 Apps / Application Reviews

Gmail for Nokia N96Gmail for Nokia N96Being a Gmail user I have always wanted to have my mails on my phone. Using the built in mail applications was not enough. Following this idea Google has released a mobile java based freeware application for S60 based mobile phones including the new Nokia N96 I am currently using.

Gmail for S60 is a mobile application that you install on your phone which enables you to access your Gmail account instantly from your Nokia S60 mobile phone.

To get Gmail mobile you will have to go to gmail.com/app and download the installation file on your mobile phone. Open your Nokia N96 mobile browser and navigate to the address. After downloading the installation file on your Nokia N96 or other Nokia Symbian S60 3rd edition mobile phone install it on your phone memory or internal storage.

After that go to Applications and you will find the Gmail icon there. I must say the icon looks a bit crappy compared to the other icons in your phone but it is not the looks that do the job. However Google could fix this in some of the next releases of Gmail for mobile.

Nokia Share - Post images to FacebookNokia Share - Post images to FacebookSince the Nokia Share 4.0 application does not support Facebook directly and on the other hand I am no fan of Vox, Ovi and Flickr for the simple reason that all of the people I want to share my pictures and stuff are on Facebook, I was really disappointed by the fact that I was not able to post my pictures to Facebook directly from my phone.

So after doing a little research on the net, I found that there was a way to make it happen. Although this is not the best solution for my problem, it seems like it is the only one available for the moment.

So how to make it happen? How to post your pictures to Facebook from your Nokia NSeries phone? As first you will need an Ovi account activated on your phone. I guess you know how to do that (if not expect the tutorial soon, or read your Nokia phone manual).

The next step is of course having a Facebook account, you have one, right? For the sake of this article I assume that you are familiar with the Nokia Share Online application and you know how to use it.

Swim for Symbian S60/UIQSwim for Symbian S60 Swim for Symbian UIQ

Swim is a utility for automatic periodic synchronization of data with internet servers such as Google Calendar (through GooSync), Mobical, Zyb and Ovi. It makes use of the existing SyncML support in the system, and adds timing capabilities, something both UIQ and S60 mysteriously lack! You can set it to sync your data every 15 minutes, every hour, every 4 hours, every 12 hours, daily, or weekly.

MobileShield - Get your stolen phone back!MobileShield - Get your stolen phone back!I just had my phone stolen and I managed to get it back. How? Few months ago a purchased MobileShield - a mobile phone protection application that I installed on my Nokia N95 phone (the application is compatible with all Symbian S60 3rd edition mobile phones), I installed MobileShield on the phone configured it and forgot about it until I had my phone stolen.

What exactly does MobileShield do and how it helped me get my Nokia N95 back? MobileShield is installed on your S60 3rd edition mobile phone, to be more specific on the phone memory only so that it can not be removed from the card. The application activates whenever the SIM card of the phone is changed and requires authentication, a password that only you know. If you fail to enter the correct password the application automatically sends a SMS message to a number you entered in the configuration process. For security reasons I entered both mobile phone numbers.

After getting my phone stolen I received an SMS message when the thief changed the SIM card. I had his mobile phone number now...
