Hello boys and girls.. today let us have a look at the top 10 apps that are frequently used on my Nokia 5800XPM.

No.10: PhoneTorch

Turns your 5800 into a torchlight! It utilises the LED light at the back of the camera and you can choose to produce morse codes or simple to change light colour.

No.9: Qik

Qik lets you stream live from your phone camera to the web so people from elsewhere can watch and they are also able to chat with you… conversations will appear on your phone screen and you simply reply them by talking.

No.8: Slick

Slick is an all in one messenger app that lets you chat with your friends via MSN, Yahoo, Gtalk etc. I like how the interface blurs out when there’s a popup. You can also hide the app and a tiny marquee will appear when you receive new messages.

No.7: WeatherBug

A widget that displays weather for current day and 7 days ahead… it uses your GPS location so the information is more precise. I like the animation screen of the wind change on the earth.

No.6: Photo Browser

A beta app released by Nokia Betalabs… it lets you view photos in stunning 3D scrolling effect.. similar to Piclens/Cooliris add on on Firefox. I like the face zooming feature where it zooms to each face on the photo when you swipe the photo.

No.5: Talkanaut

Another multi IM messenger.. but this one is very stable and I like how it loads avatars and the clean tabbed interface.

No.4: Google Maps

Google Maps as we know it… loads maps and let us route to places we want to go…. now with Latitude feature built in, we can instantly see where all our friends are. Nice… but it needs data connection in order to load maps and latitude lists.

No.3: Snaptu

Snaptu is an app that integrates many Internet services and social networks in one so that we can have access to all of them in just an app. Facebook, Twitter, Picasa, BBC news, Google iCal are just some of the services in Snaptu. Really love using it to check RSS feeds.

No.2: Garmin

Best mapping app in the world!!!!!! Voice guidance, turn by turn routing… uses maps that has landmarks updated by users itself… the power of the Garmin community is superb. Not free though… but erm.. heh :)

No.1: Gravity

The one app that I use everyday every minute everywhere… Gravity.. the native S60 app for Twitter. Love the kinetic scrolling, able to save a lot of twitter searches, built in photo uploading feature direct to mobypicture, twitpic, posterous etc… frequent updates… fantastic interface…. hmm so yea.. I LOVE this app. haha

That’s all.. my top 10 favourite 5800 apps. Any comments or questions, do leave them here. :D

I was trying to get into the Download section on my 5800 to get the QuickOffice application when I noticed a changed in the icons.

The yellow folder icons are now gone and replaced with light blue ones. Could this change be in conjuction with the upcoming OVI Store? Very low possibility but we shall wait and see.

In the applications folder I see 2 new additions: Mobisystems Diets and Widgets. The former is just an app to calculate and recomment diets and the latter contains all possible widgets that can be installed on the phone. (and currently it only has Accuweather in it).

The rest of the contents are now provided by Jamba, a mobile phone content provider, based in Berlin, Germany which previously trades with the name Jamster!.

Check out the ‘Download!’ folder on your phone now and you might find some interesting stuff there.

My freind Ben just got himself a black N82 (woot!) and it’s his first Symbian phone.

He then asked me what are the essential apps to have on an Nseries…

Well, here are the 5 ‘must have’ apps for me. (might work for u too lol)

1.
Yes I know the S60 built in browser now can view flash videos like Youtube… but it’s a lot easier if u can just skip all the browser opening, url typing and video searching. Mobitubia is very simple to use. Lists out the popular videos, featured videos and you can search for videos too.

Get it HERE.

2.
I love to chat on MSN and thanks to Mig33, I can chat all I want.. anytime anywhere! I’ve tried a lot of MSN clients and I think this is the best one for me.

Get it HERE or you can point your phone browser to http://wap.mig33.com

3.
Who doesnt love widgets? haha… Widsets allows us to install widgets of all kinds into our lil multimedia computers…(eg:wikipedia, weather, blogs, flickr etc). Search thru the library of widgets and pick them and wallah! They appear on your phone screen!(of course u need a data connection to do this)

Get it HERE.

4.
The built in browser is good, but there ARE some things that it cannot do. Therefore it’s better to have another browser and the best browser for mobile now happens to be Opera.

Get it HERE.

5.
I love Twitter and this is the mobile app for it. It’s called Twibble. With it you can send twitters, direct message your Twitter friends, reply messages and more.
