9. February 2008 at 12:00

We have been already reported about ShakeLock, application using the accelerometer to lock the device. Now you can download the first beta here
When you shake your phone up/down, the keys will be locked, when you shake your phone to the right/left, the keys will be unlocked again. As you can see in the video below, this works pretty good.

Meraj’s (must have) N95 applications – Part 2

4. February 2008 at 20:07

 

This is the continuation of a long application review that I started few days ago.

In this edition I will talk about:

  • Opera Mini
  • Lightsabre
  • Inclinometer
  • Unyverse
  • Nokia Energy Profiler

Opera Mini review

I’ve been using it since my first colour phone, and I must say that between my friends, this is the second most famous application, first one is Mxit.

 

The first versions were nothing but a simple web browser that allowed us to browse actual web but with cheap costs thanks to Opera’s proxy servers. It still uses the same basic concept, but the whole interface and features are improved and added to the program.

I used it extensively in my 6600 to check my Hotmail and Gmail, but now I use it only when I’m really low on money, because Opera really reduces the amount of data downloaded and you can choose to not load pictures and animations.

 

Opera has become like the S60 browser, full web interface, mini-map, and even flash in some cases.

Few days ago I posted on an application brought to us by Manu Krishnan, which uses the N95’s and is called ShakeLock.

I managed to find out his website’s address thanks to his post on Symbian-Freak, so I found that he’s been developing another application, which is called Speaker. I did download it from his website, and I found it’s Python based, but I simple can’t run it. Hopefully someone will tell me what I’m doing wrong.
Anyways, here is a log of what his plans are:
