My Nokia phones need to find my position accurately and quickly since I use location services like geotagging photos, checking-in on Foursquare, or navigating with Ovi maps. Fortunately there’s a revolutionary app called Maps Booster that helps your Symbian phone find your location really fast no matter what other applications need it. That’s right… I said revolutionary. If you don’t believe me, watch Steve Jobs explain the awesome technology behind the app.
Morpho QuickPanorama showed up in the Ovi Store for the Nokia N900 this week. It lets you take panoramic photographs by only moving the camera to capture a wide landscape. Users don’t need to snap multiple pictures and join them later on. The ease of use will definitely attract more people towards panoramic photography.
If you know anyone else who makes better car mounts, let us know, because ProClip is definitely up there. The latest device holders they sent for me to review are for the Nokia N97 and N97 mini. Not only are the fit and build quality top-notch, but they also allow you to slide the devices open to use the keyboard if needed.
I can’t give you proper reviews of Nokia devices if I don’t try other phones from other manufacturers for comparison. I’ve been using the Google Nexus One in the past 30 days and have been really enjoying it. I’ll share my review of the Nexus One with lots of comparisons to Nokia’s current superphone, the Nokia N900.
TuneWiki had a widget for the Nokia N900 since launch, but today, they’ve released a full application called TuneWiki Social Media Player (SMP) that you can download for free at the Ovi Store. It works like the widget where you can read lyrics while listening to music, but they’ve added some cool new features. I’m in love with the new internet radio and the option to watch music videos with lyrics!
There isn’t a lot of applications for the Nokia N900 at the Ovi Store, so it’s kind of a big deal when new apps show up. The latest one I noticed is called WikiHow. It lets you access over 60,000 how-to articles on several topics. For example, I just learned how to practice proper sushi etiquette. I like what WikiHow is trying to do, but I have a couple of things to complain about their app.
I’ll have more impressions and write a review in the near future, but for now, feast your eyes on the Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition and my unboxing. There are a lot of things inside the box, but I managed to keep this video short and to the point. Take a look.
2G/3G Mode Selection Applet works exactly as it sounds. Installing this applet adds 3 buttons to the Nokia N900′s status menu that lets the user change between 2G only, 3G only, or Dual (3G priority) connection. This is a really quick way to change modes without going through other settings. I made a video to show you how it looks.
