S60 3.0 (3rd Edition) apps I use

I've had a Nokia E70 for a little while now, and have been asked by friends and colleagues what software there is, so here's my rundown on the best (free) apps I've found.

After being quized at work by many people for the applications they should download for their new N80/Eseries phone, I've compiled a list of the applications I have used. All of the applications listed are free, but I may post another list soon with useful commercial applications.

If you use anything that I've not listed let me know in the comments and I'll make sure to have a look :o)

Useful/Entertaining applications

Calcium
A nicer, easier to use calculator than the pre-installed application

Widsets
News aggregator/widgets app. View my review here

Nokia Mobile Search
Yellow pages (and others) search app Eseries aren't listed, so you have to choose another S60 3.0 phone, like the N80, N91, or N93

Nokia Podcasting
Allows the subscription of podcasts and because of the Wireless LAN feature on most S60 3.0 devices it will download over your broadband connection. Now there's no excuse to miss an episode of TWiT.

Nokia Internet Radio
Although the configuration has to be done by editing a file manually, and the UI could be improved, the application works, and enables the streaming of AAC and MP3 internet radio stations. The only thing missing is Realaudio support for the BBC Radio streams, but you should be able to do that with the pre-installed Realplayer.

ShoZu
Photo uploader/tagger. Useful if you upload your photos to the web (Flickr/Kodak Easyshare/etc)

Games

Snakes - The 3D one

Bantumi

Other sites to look at

All About Symbian
All about Symbian has a section dedicated to S60 3.0 applications, and this link is to the filtered list which shows only free applications.

I've been very pleasantly surprised to find out that someone actually reads my blog... Tommi, over at the S60 Blogs posted a link to here on his blog. Thanks!

I partly got the idea from Tommi's blog, after he did his 'favourite applications (so far)' post... it should have however been called 'the only applications (so far)' as far as I could see at the time :)

Portrait of the author

On weekdays I'm a Technical Lead at Comparethemarket.com, having previously been a Solution Architect at Nokia & Nokia Siemens Networks, creating creative software solutions for mobile operators around the world.

In my spare time I'm an avid new technology fan, and constantly strive to find innovative uses for the new gadgets I manage to get my hands on. Most recently I've been investigating Mobile Codes, RFID and Home automation (mainly Z-Wave). With a keen eye for usability I'm attempting to create some cost-effective, DIY technology solutions which would rival even high-end retail products. The software I develop is usually released as Open Source.

I have a Finnish geek partner, so have begun the difficult task of learning Finnish.
