Nokia: The Unsual N Odd Uses

So its been a little while since I updated this blog of mine after I moved to mymobilescoop.com . Everytime I think of coming back and posting some news here but that just didnt happen for last 8 months or so.
Finally i squeezed in some time to share this tiny tips. So I have a 5800 and its one of the best devices I've ever used from Nokia. Although initially it was nothing more than a phone to me, last few months its been a better half of me(I know I need some help ;-)

So to get into those unusual uses,

1. I'm a student going to college. My life now is full of assignments, presentations etc. And that explains the plenty of papers on my desk. And here is the simplest use of my phone, the Paper Weight. Yeah, my study table is next to the window and yep I see all these papers flying all over when a small breeze of wind come in. Not that I dont have a paper weight, but sometimes just one won't help and you have to use something else. Oh yeah, your Phone ;)



2. If your living in my part of the world, you are probably used to this, Power Failures. And sometimes this happens the night before my exams. And yeah that aint an excuse for flunking in your exams, says my dad ;)
Anyway, with this app from Ovi store, i found out that I have an emergency lantern with me. And its not so bright enough to light up the entire room and cause trouble to my sleeping roomies. It just lights up my table and I'm good to go. Thats so so helpful. And for the record, I did pass that exam.





3. Similarly, my laptop did not come with a backlit keyboard. So during these power failures or during late nights when the lights are off, its to difficult to type something until I found this trick. It just Works !


4. Another main use I've found is that sometimes you are so busy with your works, you just dont have enough time to read notices displayed at college or any ads or articles that come in the newspaper/magazines. Normally I just had to pass them but now with my phone, I snap them in Macro mode and read them later on my computer or phone itself when I'm free. How cool is that ?? It's like the Read It Later website, but offline ;)



5. Sometimes after long hours of reading my neck muscles hurt me a lot. I dont have a massager, but I have a phone that can vibrate. I just set the alarm to the nearest time and turn vibrate feature on and tone to least. When clock hits the time, I have my massage. Not at the spa, but right at my study table. Yay !

6. If you are like me, looking good should be very important to you. And yeah, in college that matter a lot. You know why ;-)
Thanks to the secondary cam on my phone, I can look at my face anytime anywhere. Comb hair, apply gel or just praise my look, lol.

Top 5 free apps for nokia 5800


1. Nokia messaging: Its an email client from nokia to send and receive mail from gmail, hotmail and yahoo. It also supports attachment to be sent. Hence i like it over gmail app from google which is java based and does not support attachments. This also has touch support. be sure to read instructions. The app is free for now in most places but will be converted to a paid app later.

2. Nimbuzz: Instant messaging client with support to numerous services like gmail,yahoo,msn/hotmail,facebook,gadu gadu,myspace and more. you can share pictures and videos with friends, send voice messages. You can also call your google tak and msn buddies through wifi or network connection. So you dont need a pc to voice chat. Good interface and touch support. Go to nimbuzz.com from pc or go to m.nimbuzz.com from your mobile web browser.

3. Tweets60: This is free twitter client with touch support. This may not be as good as gravity or twittix which are paid apps. But its a good choice over twitter mobile site and best for quick updates, direct messages, favourites and replies.
go to www.tweets60.com

4. Sms preview: We all get busy in our life. Remember that situation when you are quite busy with something and an sms arrives. Then you quickly grab your phone to browse to messaging application and you realize it was one of the forward message you get daily. Well, not any more. This apps displays a small window which shows a preview of sms that just arrived and disappears. You can also set the time for how long it can be should be displayed.

known issue: the ovi store versio does not show the message properly, hence use the link above.

5.Google maps: Allows you to search places, calculate route and shows directions. Now with latitude feature you can see where your friends are and can see directions to see them. go to m.google.com and select maps.
