I am not a very WebOS person, however I am open to trying out new applications. Anuj from the N95 Community mentioned running Glide, a WebOS on the N95 I decided to give it a shot. Websites like Google are doing a pretty decent job syncing our content over the web through various applications like calender being accessible on the mobile. However a WebOS promises a complete experience and well, delivers in some cases!
S60 wizard Samir has officially released the rotateME beta 5 for the general public! It is one of the most widely awaited applications ever and is compatible with the N95, N95 8GB and the N82 while a special version for N80, N73, E65, N81 is in the works.
Beta 5 brings a world of improvements, the biggest for me is the ability to hide the application from the default task manager! This is something I really wanted as it makes the experience complete, it is as if the rotate functionality comes inbuilt! The options to adjust sensitivity and reactivity work well and allow you to control the angle of tilt at which the screen rotates. The auto start option is also present. All in all a complete package. Wonderful work from a great man! Cheers to you mate! In case you can spare it, donate Samir a few PayPal dollars.
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.
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.
In this guide I will list out a few easy steps which will allow you to do so.
2. Opera – Download!
4. A S60v3 Phone e.g. N95, N93, N73, N83, N81, E90, E70 and so on.
Once the above is done with, lets start:
Nokia continues to release great free applications to go with their S60 phones. The latest in line is the Nokia Internet Radio application, it surprisingly is ‘officially’ compatible with the N95, N95 8GB, N91 and the N82. However it apparently works with most other S60 v3 devices too. Shoutcast playlists come up with a full directory of hundreds of compatible stations and there is no need to search for stations on the net. The quality of the stream at 128 kpbs is great! A must download.
Update: I just spent more time with the application and I also really liked its UI and ease of use. The streaming quality can also be selected according to the connection you are using to connect to the servers. Neat!
