The most popular native Symbian Twitter client, Gravity has been receiving a lot of updates since it first launched back in March.

Through these few months, features added were profile viewing, twitpic previewing, instapaper support, mobipicture support, fullscreen option and many more.

The latest version of Gravity, v1.20 build 5570 was released few days ago and it adds large fonts options so that you dont have to squint your eyes reading twit updates from your friends. Other updates that come with this update: more stable API proxy, preview of flickrm yfrog and img.ly

Here’s a screenshot of the timeline with large fonts (and white theme for improved readability)

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

Hi all, finally a native Twitter client is released for S60 phones like N96, N85, N79, 5800 etc.

Just launched today on their website, Gravity spots a fantastic interface and is a full featured Twitter client that supports multiple accounts, Twitter Search, Laconica and TwitPic.

What an awesome interface on the 5800. Haha… On the main screen you get access to your timeline, Twitter search, images(from your phone) and an option to add a new account.

More screens! Timeline and Replies screen… of course there are others like “followers, favourite, own tweets”

Simply click on each twit and it opens up a submenu using the accordian style effect which gives you options to reply, retweet, unfollow, and buttons to visit links mention in the twit you selected.

Here’s 2 screnshots of Gravity on non-touch S60 phones.

Check out this video below of Gravity on my 5800…. recorded using another 5800. lol

Go download the trial version of Gravity now!
