Have you checked out the Ovi Store lately? It has recently been updated and now includes a few applications that you might find handy. Personally I was let down by the Ovi Store upon launch, but over the past 3 weeks I am happy with the content they are adding.
Still though, I would like to see more – many more free applications for the E71, as Ricky from Symbian-Guru recently mentioned. It would be nice to have all my favorite applications in one place, especially when I update my firmware and my entire device is wiped out. That’s a topic for another discussion, so for now I’ll continue with the Ovi Store updates.
New Applications include…
- Opera Mini – Very fast web browser
- Qik – Stream live video to the web and upload to your Facebook from the E71.
- Skyfire – A more advanced browser, a little to chunky for me. Great for heavy browsing, includes flash content.
- Palringo – Free instant messenger; includes Gtalk, Facebook Chat, Yahoo IM, etc.
- Photobucket – Upload your E71 photos to your Photobucket account.
- Flyscreen – RSS reader, twitter, social sites, etc.
- Nokia Magnifier – Use your E71 camera to magnify anything.
- NeoReader – Scan barcodes to get more info on a product.
- Powerboot – Choose applications that you’d like to startup when your E71 starts up.
- HourPower – Have your phone tell you the time every hour or at the press of the button – out loud!
Those are all FREE E71 applications found in the Ovi Store. There are more of course, I just picked up the ones that I recommend. Those don’t include many of the great commercial applications that you can find as well. You might notice that those are starting to get cheaper and cheaper to buy… very cool! Don’t forget you can visit store.ovi.com from your PC browser if you don’t feel like digging around on your E71. Stayed tuned to another post I’m working on to show you all of the applications I have installed on my E71. Sort of like the feature that Gerrymoth was doing over at Nokia Addict (a good read).
