I'm sure that I'm not the only person with a Symbian phone, and I want to know what apps others consider essential on theirs.
I've only recently replaced my phone so haven't had time to build the collection yet, but so far:
- SportsTracker (absolutely brilliant for cycling and running, particularly if you want to show off to friends how much exercise you've done)
- FastFoot Challenge (odd little GPS-linked multiplayer game - I haven't had much of a chance to try it yet as there aren't many users in the UK, but I've found someone else who plays it and arranged to try in a few weeks)
- Ovi Maps
- Small selection of ebooks
- MapsRacing (weird little racing game that ties in with Ovi Maps, somewhat addictive)
- Opera Mobile
- Opera Mini (when I don't care about accessing full sites)
- Tesco Clubcard (I never, ever remember to take my actual clubcard shopping)
As above and used to like the skyfire browser. Love my Nokia E71.
Slingpplayer is an essential on my phone.. Well worth the 20 bucks or whatever it cost..
Also putty comes in handy for essential server stuff when out on the move..
Any suggestions for some simlple games? Tetris or anything?
Isn't there a ZX Spectrum emulator for the symbian phones? I would like to see a MAME emulator for them.
- Endomondo for tracking an alternative to Sports Tracker (the original sportstracker was pretty good but the new one for my phone is pants).
- furtiv add-ons to send pictures straight to Facebook or Twitpic with GPS tags.
- JoikuSpot is handy - turns my phone into a wifi hotspot (it varies in price from day to day so buy it on a cheap day!).
- Google Maps - handy backup to Ovi Maps (and good for satellite images)
- Fring - Skype client (And twitter & others)
- BBC Iplayer (is almost watchable over 3G if you really must watch something)
- Tweets60 - free Twitter client (but not as good as Gravity)
If you are on Three their email software is good as it sends a special text message to tell your phone to pick up the email. My battery lasts an extra day using this over Exchange.
I recently put SCUMMVM on mine - just trying to hunt down my old Monkey Island disks now.
