Summer is approaching and ending for others, but it won’t stop me from fishing for apps at the Ovi Store. It’s time again to share my catch. All of them are totally free and published by the company, Offscreen. There were lots of worthy paid apps, but I know most of you are more eager to see good free apps.
One of the latest additions to Gravity is the Google Reader integration. That’s right! Our favorite Twitter app for Symbian can now receive and manage updates for Google Reader. Go watch it in action.
The Nokia Ovi Store team rolled out an update on Thursday to provide faster access to relevant content with new content sorting for the store. This seems to apply to S60 devices only like the Nokia N97 mini because I do not see the changes on the Nokia N900. The update is available through a prompt when opening the Ovi Store.
Skyfire just released version 1.5 of their browser for Symbian S60 3rd and 5th editions. You can download it directly from your device by heading over to m.skyfire.com. I’ve briefly tested it on a Nokia N97 mini. I’m satisfied with how accurate it renders webpages, but it’s still not as fast as I want it to be.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Joikuspot is a must-have app for S60 users. It turns your phone into a wireless access point for other devices like a laptop, internet tablet, iPod Touch, etc. The premium version usually sells for 25 euros, but it’s available for 7 Euros during the holidays for the first 250 users.
I’ve been using the second beta to Nokia Messaging for Social Networks the weekend before today’s official announcement. If you need a reminder, the first beta was released at Nokia World, supporting only Facebook. The new version adds new options for Facebook and adds support for Twitter. Read on for some of my feedback.
A new version of Shazam is now on the Ovi store. For those who are not familar with the app, it identifies songs. Want to know the title of that song playing at the club? Just Shazam it! In addition to some interface changes, the updated version now supposedly lets users to share tags or the recognized music info on Twitter.
Vlingo came pre-installed on the Nokia N97′s firmware 2.0 and I’m surprised at how well it works. You can use ordinary language to instantly send a text or an email message, call a friend, create a note, update your Facebook or search the web simply by saying what you want. I’ve included a video of while trying it out.
