Updating firmware n82
Update November 2007: Google Maps now has GPS cell-id based location support Calcium The calculator that comes with Nokia phones sucks.
Its user interface is quite inconvenient and I’m pretty sure you’ll agree after trying Calcium.
For example, evenings using the home WLAN is a good choice, especially for those without a flat-rate data plan – video podcasts or vodcasts can easily take few tens of MB each.
Then listen or watch to your favorite podcasts on the move the next day. Also available for download from Nokia Search Nokia Search now comes pre-installed in at least the new N-series devices, but if you don’t have it yet, get it here.
More screenshots: [Screenshot 2] Handy Clock Handy Clock supplies some of the “missing” essential applications; in addition to the nice day/night map pictured here, it has a set of alarms, countdown timers and stopwatch functions that are extremely convenient e.g. There’s also an elementary time log for logging project durations. More screenshots: [Screenshot 2] Nokia Podcasting Nokia has made a nice podcasting application that supports most N- and E-series devices.
It was only after this application that I really “got” podcasts; you can set it to download your favorite podcasts at set times and using a specified network.
Also available for download from: Screenshot Screenshot is, as the name would imply, a simple application that allows you to take screenshots of applications running on the phone – something that has been extensively used in making of this post, for example.
Price: free Available from: Google Maps Mobile Google’s own version of their Google Maps for mobile phones.
Added more screenshots as well as displaying all in “real life size” now. Ogg Play works again with an updated certificate, but has an annoying bug causing the phone volume buttons not to work – I’ll add it back here once those work as it’s a vastly superior music player to the included one.To perhaps aid in this search for these valuable applications, below is a list of my favorites along with screenshots.Most applications are free, which I prefer, but there are a couple which are so good that I consider them worth the money.For example, the #1 application on the phone is still the browser (it’s great), but a bunch of useful stuff will still need to be installed by the user.The only problem is that lots of the other stuff is crap and finding the good applications is a pretty lengthy process, especially when people often don’t know what’s out there and what are the possibilities.
