ALERT ALERT! A damn useful app is emerging and everyone in KL, Malaysia should get it!

It might just be one of the most useful app on your phone alongside Gravity!

Thanks to the guys at Nerdattack, we will be able to check out traffic conditions in the city before we leave the office, go for parties at night or going to work.

If I’m not mistaken, the app is currently only supported on S60 v5 touch devices so if you are using a Nokia 5800, N97, 5530 or N97 mini then probably you should get it when it’s out on the OVI Store.

The widget has a very simple and straight forward interface. Once it’s launched, a list of street names will appear and with just a tap, traffic images will be displayed.

*Live images are grabbed from ITIS btw.

Check out these screenssssssss.. damn nice right? See how the arrows are toggled by just tapping the arrows icon on the top right of the screen.

According to NerdAttack, the app has been submitted to OVI Store and is awaiting approval. Wait for it yo! I’ll try to update u guys once the app is up.

I have mentioned this a hundred times yet I think I still have not mentioned enough of how much I love the themes produced by Pizero.

Remember the last theme he brought for us was Solstice, but that was months ago.

Few days back Pizero released one of his latest themes called Ovi.

The idea is adapted from Nokia’s Ovi suite of services of course and check out screenshots for S60 touch and non touch devices here.

Download Ovi theme for S60v3(N96, N78, N85, E71 etc) and S60v5(5800, 5530, N97) devices now!

One of the more recent addition to the Ovi Store is the Bing widget.

Bing is a new search engine by Microsoft. It has similar features to Google like Web search, image search, video search, news search etc.

The widget, which is now available for FREE download on OVI Store is compatible with S60v3 & S60v5 devices. You can get it by pointing your PC or phone browser to http://store.ovi.com.

Here’s a screenshot of the Bing widget on Nokia N96. As you can see, search results are categorised in tabs.

The widget looks and works the same on the touch version of S60 devices like 5800 & N97.

Get the Bing widget for your phone now!

Hour Power, the app that tells time is now compatible with the s60v5 devices.

It’s a simple app that utilises the built in text-to-speech engine to tell time.

When you open the app for the first time, you will get to choose the time mode, 12h or 24h clock.

How does it work? Just press on the app shortcut to hear the time. Exactly what you need when waking up and unable to focus on an alarm clock display. English, German, French, Italian and Portuguese language are currently supported. It’s recommended to place the app shortcut on the homescreen for easy access.

The one app that S60v5 users have been waiting for is now available for free download on OVI Store! The facebook app is a native s60 app that can be installed on 5800 and N97 as it is optimized for touchscreens.

This facebook app has big buttons and very clean layout, very much like the website. I am sure we do not need stylus for this interface. heh.

Here are some screen shots taken of the app on my 5800 XPM.

As you can see, that’s the login screen and once connected, it will bring up the news feed screen. Notifications like messages, pokes and friend requests are on top and at the bottom of the screen are buttons to your own profile, friends list, photos and inbox. Clicking on the green “+” sign will allow you to leave comments on the items selected.

Photos can be viewed in landscape or portrait mode. We can move around the gallery by clicking on the arrows and the Tags button will toggle the name tags on the photos on/off.

Screen on the left is how my own profile looks like and the one on the right shows the comment screen when you comment on a photo.

Wanna get Facebook on your 5800.. or *cough*…N97? Check out OVI Store now!

Remember the Flicker Clock for 5800 from some time ago? Pixelsbeatpaper has again produced some great stuff for the S60v5 platform.

First up! The Mac Attack game.

It’s a very simple game. All you need to do it poke the screen when an Apple logo flies by… it’s similar to those shooting games that we played long time ago.. so it’s very simple and does not need instructions to play.

Next up… Tic Tac Toe 2 players!

I think this game does no need anymore introduction. Haha…

There’s another game on their site called ShuffleShock.

Go visit PixelsBeatPaper website and download these games now!

Hello! Here’s a step by step guide on how to set videos as your ringtones. This feature is available in most S60 phones like N96, N95, N85, N78, 5320XPM, E71, 5800XPM etc etc etc etc etccc……

Below are the 3 simple steps along with screenshots from 2 different phones.

Step 1: Go to your media gallery and locate your videos.

Step 2: Select your video and click on Options > Use file/use video > Set as ringtone.

That’s all! It’s that simple. Alternatively, you can also get this option while the video is playing.

Besides assigning the video as ringtone, you can also specifically assign it to a certain contact in your phonebook.

That’s all. So what videos will you use as your ringtone? :D

Have you struggled looking for a candle or torchlight when the electricity got cut off suddenly? Fret no more! Here comes PhoneTorch! An app that turns the 5800 camera LED into a torchlight (and more)!

The new version of PhoneTorch app now has Morse code and the option to switch the light colour! (basicaly its just between the LED and the red focusing light)

I’d say the light is bright enough for close distance. Check out this photo below.

Use at your own risk though cos long usage of the LED might just break it. haha but worth a try nonetheless.

As we all know, Pizero and many other theme makers havE been producing a lot of quality themes all along.. but none of them were 100% perfect for S60v5.. as some of the tabs are not touchable or texts are not visible while composing SMSes…

By far, I think this one by Pizero is the best… i’d say it is fully compatible with transparent background included when there’s a popup message and very nice wallpaper. It’s called Mystic by Pizero.

Features:

  • Mystic by PiZero is compatible with all Symbian Os 3rd edition and 5th edition phones
  • Mixed Bitmap / Svg theme.
  • Hybrid PiZero / Touch icon pack included. A big Thanks for Touch Icons by Sky
  • Lite version included, with Nokia standard icons
  • Fits both portrait and landscape modes
  • Compatible with Symbian Os 3rd edition, 9.1, 9.2, 9.3, and Symbian 5th edition, 9.4.
  • 100% compatible with Nokia 5800 XpressMusic.

I was surfing around the net and I found a forum in weird language and some member of the forum posted the file of the beta version of Fring for S60v5!!! Hahahaha and I quickly installed it.

It’s still in beta version and has bugs with MSN. I checked out Fring.com and seems like they will be launching the final version in a few weeks time.

Check out these screen shots I just took.

Once opened, the super big Fring logo is displayed and it says BETA Version. Then we get to choose which messenger service to connect to, as seen in the screen shot above.

Once selected and connected, your contact list will be displayed in 3 categories(as usual) online, busy and away (all services will be merged into 1 list). We have the option to call, send file, chat and many more.

The individual chat screen looks like this. Tapping on the text field will bring up your chosen input method. There are 3 big buttons at the bottom too. Call, send files and send message.

Wanna try out this Fring beta for Nokia 5800? CLICK HERE

I have tried it to connect to MSN and Fring starts to close and open repeatedly… but it works fine when I only connect to GTalk and Facebook. So you might not wanna use MSN on this version of Fring for now

Was waiting for Fring to come out with a version that supports the 5800 when I found the original MSN app produced by Microsoft itself made for S60 5th Edition on China’s Mobile MSN website.

It looks exactly like the MSN we use on our PCs… with nudge, send file, smilies and handwriting feature.

Very stable app I’d say. Fullscreen MSN rocks! I have never used such great MSN app on any previous S60 phones before so I rate this one 9/10. Haha.

Do check out this app for S60v5… means 5800 now and soon, the N97.

Also, join Malaysia’s 5800XPM Facebook Group too if you own one.. or planning to own one.

Forum Nokia has reccently released a full touch driven painting application for S60v5 (in this case, the 5800) and it serves the purpose of demonstrating the capability of touch painting but since its a fully functional one, we can actually download and install and use it without any problems.

I’ve actually tried it as you can see in the above screenshot, it has some basic options like pencil thickness, colour, undo, clear screen and has some custom shapes too.

Download it now from Forum Nokia.
