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.

So first of all, here is a list of the features that Gravity is offering:
  • Compatible with Twitter and Laconica
  • All functions available on your S60 phone: tweet, reply, DM, follow & unfollow, create favorites, search, auto-update and many more …
  • Tabbed view of your Timeline, Replies, Messages, Friends, …
  • Configurable Audio Alerts for Timeline/Replies/DM’s & Searches
  • Setup and use as many accounts as you want at the same time
  • Group support for creating custom tabs with user-defined filters
  • Twitter-Search section with multiple search tabs and Twitter Trends
  • Post pictures to MobyPicture, TwitPic, TwitGoo & Posterous
  • Preview pictures from MobyPicture, TwitPic or TwitGoo
  • Open URLs from any Tweet
  • Kinetic scrolling on S60v5 ( Nokia 5800 and Nokia N97 )
  • Theme support on S60v3 ( fixed dark and bright theme )
  • Full-Screen mode on S60v3
  • Built-in auto-update function and beta access for testing the latest features
Being able to do all that is a remarkable feature, but the thing that impressed us most from Gravity on Nokia N97 was the interface and all those small but neat features that Nokia forgot about. The kinetic scrolling is something that we have seen in the N97 but it is not exactly what it should be. On the other hand Gravity sets an example for how things should be done in a S60 5th edition applications.

The scrolling is amazing and way better then what we have seen on the iPhone (I don't thing there is any point comparing it to the built in in the N97) and I personally feel like I am using another phone or maybe my Nokia N97 got a firmware update that made the phone just the way it should be, and I never found out. Other than that, the shock of going back to the normal S60 5th edition interface is rather big, like going back to the stone age.

We are not going to talk about the Twitter features, is has them all, at least the ones we are using and it really is an amazing Twitter client for the N97. But the reason you are reading this article is not that Gravity does what it should do on the Nokia N97, but the way it enables the interaction between your and your phone. We can only hope that in time, all S60 5th edition applications and the S60 OS as general will start to show some progress and learn from what MobileWays have done with Gravity.

I thought it was a great app. I just can't figure out how to copy and paste in Gravity using nokia n97. There is no option button for that!

I discovered a way! If you have the n97 in portrait mode AND the keyboard CLOSED, then there are three lines that you click on that give you the copy/paste comand

On N97, you may also try the free @SociallyApp (http://bit.ly/6mFra0). It supports Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn and integrates with the phone book by showing the profile photos and latest status of the callers during incoming calls.
