One of the most commonly asked questions that I find on twitter is “how can I use twitter from my E71?”. Hopefully this article can be a help to you. I’m sure you’ll be thanking me once you try this yourself.
The hugely popular up and coming social networking site is gaining membership by the millions and it’s becoming more crucial to be able to keep up with friends and colleagues while you’re on the go. Heck, you can even find @e71fanatics on Twitter, ready to answer questions about the Nokia E71 (follow me if you want :). A few months back I started using Twitter on a daily basis and realized I needed to not be chained to my PC to stay updated.
I’m not talking about simply sending tweets from my E71 via the messaging app. Nope, that is not enough. I wanted to get the full experience. Pictures, replies, links, followers, THE WORKS!
That’s when a certain application caught my attention...
Gravity Is The Solution
Gravity is a twitter application for the Nokia E71 and all Nokia smartphones that does a better job than many PC applications I’ve used – including Tweetdeck. That’s quite a bold statement but Gravity shows the power that Symbian S60 devices can have.
Overview of Gravity’s Features:
- Compatible with Twitter and Laconica
- All functions available on your S60 phone: tweet, reply, DM, follow & unfollow, create favourites, search, auto-update and many more
- Tabbed view of your Timeline, Replies, Messages, Friends
- Setup and use as many accounts as you want at the same time
- Twitter-Search section with multiple search tabs and Twitter Trends
- Post pictures via TwitPic
- Open URLs from any Tweet
As you can see this application has everything you need. The developer is constantly updating Gravity and it now includes options for notification sounds and vibrations to let you know when someone tweets, replies, etc. And it’s very customizable.
Check out a few screenshots from my Nokia E71…
Rita from Symbian-Guru.com actually made a video review of Gravity when it was still in it’s early stages. Keep in mind it was a beta version and many changes have been applied since this video…
Gravity isn’t free, although it is the best $10 I’ve spent in a long time. Maybe even better than the $8 I spent at Five Guys Burgers this afternoon. And believe me that burger was damn good. Grilled onions, grilled mushrooms, ketchup & mustard, mayo, bacon, cheese. Yum.
Back on topic…
Gravity comes with a 10 day full trial. It really lets you get a feel for the application and actually become attached to it. Give it a try by visiting http://mobileways.de/products/gravity/ and get started.
