Freeware: Mr. Lock - auto lock your Nokia keypadFreeware: Mr. Lock - auto lock your Nokia keypadIf you have been searching for the "auto lock keypad" feature on your new 3rd edition phone and you were wandering why you can not find it, the reason is simple, there isn't one! Since Nokia does not provide an auto lock feature on Symbian S60 3rd edition devices this little application comes very useful.

In this absence of native keypad auto lock comes Mr Lock from the developer MobiFun Software.

This simple free application enables you to auto lock the keypad depending on which profile are you using at the moment, you can set the auto lock period and weather to lock the keypad only on if you are at the idle screen or you can auto lock your phone in every program while specifying exceptions (not locking the keypad while using particular applications).

I have used this application for a few days and I must say I like the "Auto lock in -> Specific profile" feature the most. Mr Lock is a free application available for free download. I have tested it on Nokia N73 and it works just fine.

Nokia Location Tagger updateNokia Location TaggerNokia has released an update for the Nokia Location Tagger (v1.0 beta). In case you don't know what Location Tagging (Geotagging ) is or what Nokia Location Tagger does let me clarify.

Geotagging is a feature that uses your phone's GPS system to get information on where the picture was taken by your phone's camera and stores it in the EXIF metadata of the picture, so that the GPS coordinates can be read by specific software and the location where you took the picture can be displayed on the map.

The new update provides few new features among which "Show on map" and few bug fixes. That nasty bug that drained your battery very fast is fixed too. The new updated Nokia Location Tagger v1.0 beta uses your battery power more efficiently thus providing you with more usage time.

Another thing is that the new updated Nokia Location Tagger supports more Symbian S60 3rd edition phones and even phones without GPS through an external GPS module connected via Bluetooth.

Silver - Black Symbian theme released by PiZero"Silver by PiZero is a full SVG Theme for Symbian 3rd edition phones. It is not a simple “new gold” with changed colours. This theme has many improvements and changes to make itmore efficient, good-looking and with high readabilty.

There is a partially new icon pack, I’m sorry if I did not change all the icons, but finding vector icons for free, and without breaking any copyright is very hard. It isn't easy to find loads of vector icons on the p2p, but I absolutely want to respect all the copyrights. This makes very hard to find new icons; unless you are able to spend over $300 for an eps icon pack…."

When I saw this theme I was amazed by the simplicity and clearness of the theme. I was looking for a long time to find a theme like "Silver" but amazingly I was not able to. If you are sick of seen messy themes made by amateurs on your Symbian phone this is the right theme for you, it is simply stylish, clean and the most important thing is it is SVG Theme which means that the background would not pixelate when you change the screen orientation. A big thanks to PiZero for creating the Silver theme.

Google released a native client for Google search for S60 phonesGoogle Mobile Search for Symbian S60Google has released a native client for Google search for S60 phones. The application, available via the Google mobile site, places a shortcut to a Google search box on the idle screen of your S60 device.

"Last week Google and Nokia announced that Google Search would be added to the Nokia Mobile Search application that ships with all recent S60 devices.

This means that Google Search will soon be available via Nokia's search client. As such, Google's release of its own native search client is something of an unnecessary repetition.

However the benefits of the Google search client is its immediate availability, its specificity and the fact it is much faster loading than Nokia's client."

It took me less then a minute to download and install Google Mobile Search on my Nokia N73. The application is very easy to use and fits well on the idle screen.

Monikker - Your face your callMonikkerWith the new Monikker service, you can choose how you want to identify yourself to your friend. By allowing you to choose the ringtone that your friend's Monikker-enabled mobile phone displays, Monikker puts the power of Caller ID in your hands weather to impress your friends or to "irritate them" as it is said on their website.

"A lot of phones let you pick the ringtone used when someone calls you, but when you think about it, that's starting at the wrong end - you would like to decide how your calls are announced. That's what's new and interesting about monikker."

The only way this service to work is to get as many of your friends as possible to use it. It is something new and I might say it sounds interesting.

The application is currently available for Symbian (all Nokia Nseries and other S60 phones) and Windows Mobile but it is planed to be released for other mobile operating systems and even mobile JAVA.
