Password Protected!Password Protected!Password Protection 

This is probably the most frequently asked question, ever! Everybody has certain photos, videos, songs and all sorts of other files which we want to hide from another person. Fortunately there are several 3rd party applications what allow us to do that, but unfortunately they are paid for!

However there are two ways in which you can not only hide files from the Gallery but also password protect them and the best part is that these methods cost nothing. In this post I will go over both of them.

Youtube On S60 

Yes, you read it correctly! You can now have access to any and I mean any video on youtube or any other flash video based website. There is no longer a need for converters or portals like m.vtap.com or the youtube mobile site. Forget them all!

Update: Forget all of this, just look up this post. It is a fully featured YouTube client with no effort involved.

Update: RotateMe wizard Samir has meanwhile released a Youtube player that lets you search for youtube videos and playthen directly on the phone. There’s just one glitch in the beta, you can only search for one word! Really worth a shot. Look here.

Google Maps Goes Symbian – Supports GPS!

Google Maps 

This is huge! Our favourite Google Maps appliacation is now a native coded Symbian OS 9 client! This results in a much better overall performance, optimum RAM usage, faster loading and the greatest add on being support for internal and external GPS!

Being able to jump to an aerial view, in exquisite detail, of your current location, more or less anywhere in the world, without lifting a finger or giving the software any manual help, as Rafe and Steve put it is MAGICAL. You get lost, you open your N95 (or E90 or 6110, etc) and you’re almost instantly shown where you are and, after a couple more keypresses, given explicit directions to get home, overlaid on a traditional street map or the respected Google Maps satellite view.

A Great Free Theme Site!

Recently I came across PiZero’s Nokia Mobile Art theme site and I have only two words to describe it, ‘Absolutely Stunning’. He’s made some great elegant themes, themes which one can use forever, the kind you do not really grow out of. I for one don’t really like the cartoon/flashly kinda themes, if you also share similar tastes then a visit to his site is a must.

Here are a few themes I particularly liked,

The All In One Torch!

I, for one, find a torch to be a very convenient utility as many a time you find yourself groping for the light switch while in a dark room, searching for your keys on the bedside table or even trying to read the menu in a dark restaurant. The possibilities are endless! TM from The Series 60 Weblog has developed this wonderful freeware for our S60 v3 phones! It is comprises of both a screen light and a LED strobe light.

The Shutter Sound Is Mute!

cCam 

Finally! I’m glad to say now we can finally turn the flash and the sound completely off while taking a picture from our S60 3rd edition phones. Chua Welic has released a freeware which will allow us to do exactly that!  

cCam (pronounced “see-cam”) is a camera capture program that runs on S60 phones, allows us to click pictures with no shutter sound and no flash light! It saves the captured images to default memory card image directory.

It also features an option to set the focus range and a link to take us to the gallery.

DOWNLOAD! Version – 1.01

Note: While testing on the Nokia N95 i’m glad to say there was no sound, however the red led does light up for a micro second!
