SymbianpOp Sharing fun stuff about Symbian
Categories: Apps

I was not aware of this but now I am. The N96, like the N78… is powered by Symbian OS 9.3, Nokia S60 3rd edition, feature pack 2.

This also means there are A LOT of apps out there which were compatible with the N95 and N82, cannot work on the N96 & N78 now.

… but somehow I have managed to try out a few that works.

- fring

fring is a free mobile VoIP app for you to chat and talk to your friends via the popular messengers like MSN, Skype, Gtalk and Yahoo. fring enables free calls via Wifi, 3G, EDGE or GPRS.

Get fring

- iSync

This one basically works for all Nseries. It helps to synchronise your data eg: calendar, photos, videos from your phone to your Mac.

Get iSync

- Calcium

This is also for most Symbian phones. Calcium is a new calculator app that eases everybody’s life. Haha.. as we all know, the Symbian version that comes with our Nseries is a bit… er… troublesome to use. So try this one and you will get your math solved in no time.

Get Calcium

- Mini Friday

I just installed this yesterday. Seems to be quite fun. It’s actually simple mobile virtual world with many types of spaces like bars, clubs. Customise your own 3D character and chat with everyone now! Watch out, this app does not support Wifi.. so make sure you are on a data plan in order to use this on 3G or Gprs.

Hi, Congratulations on the N96! May I know if it is possible to record DVB-H broadcast of our U-mobile channels?

Have a nice Raya Holiday! :)
