Nokia 5800 S60 V5 App : Rubik’s Cube

While there are a number of Cube programs out there, it’s time to look at the official Rubik’s Cube, now available in the Nokia Ovi Store. Also, you have heard a lot about Google Glass Apps,

Let’s be clear, I like the real Rubik’s Cube, I’ve got quite a few of them, including the scary “oversized” cubes that are 4x4x4 (and larger), and, while getting nowhere close to world record pace, I can solve them without removing the stickers. So settling down with the digital version shouldn’t be that different? They …

Nokia 5800 S60 V5 App : Ovi Maps Challenge

Ovi Maps Challenge is a quiz game based around my worst Trivial Pursuit colour – the light blue that is geography. This is the part that feels a bit like some nice marketing effort, and promoting yet again the free suite that is Ovi Maps. Even with it bundled in the firmware of most phones, people still need to know it’s there and that it is free.
Though I love the irony that Ovi Maps Challenge isn’t as free as Ovi …

Nokia 5800 S60 V5 App : EchoEcho

One of the axims that people hold true about the mobile phone is that the most popular question uttered during a mobile call is “where are you?” With all the software and technology, is that still a valid question, or should our smartphones be able to answer this for us?
Location Based Services are the next big thing, but when you strip out the gaming features, the badges to be earned, the mayorships to collect, it boils down to this one question. And that’s …

Nokia 5800 S60 V5 App : Data Monitor

The term “unlimited data” is an infamous fallacy in the mobile industry. However generous, there are always limits, and so each individual has to keep track of how much data they have consumed. This is just what DataMonitor by One View Systems is meant to help you do.

DataMonitor gives you a display of how much data has been sent and received over your 3G/GPRS connection, and likewise for your WiFi connection. However, the application itself isn’t keeping count. Rather, it is pulling together data already stored …

Nokia 5800 S60 V5 App : SPB Brain Evolution

Many years ago, you could find a lot of ‘small puzzle’ games kicking around the software catalogues (look far enough back and you’ll find some authored by myself as well). But the latest craze is to take a lot of these small games, bundle them together, and create a ‘Brain Training’ game.
This is where you play a few of the games each day and your score is then analysed. Add them all up and you get a daily total, which you need to improve each day. You …

The problem with going to sleep in silence is that your mind fills in the silence with its own thoughts and worries – having an audio book, some white noise or, as here, natural sounds, is a good way to fill the gap. It’s something soothing for your ears to receive and your mind to wind down to.
It’s worked for me for years, with radio shows and particularly technical podcasts(!) and, as here, there’s something particularly soothing about being snug and warm and dry in …

Nokia 5800 S60 V5 App : SoundHound

If there’s a song in your mind, then SoundHound might be what you’re looking for. Offering a very similar service to Shazam, SoundHound has the ability to recognise either recorded music or a melody sung or hummed by you. This makes it handy if you have a tune stuck in your head, and shows how well you can hold a tune, or not. Does this make it better than Shazam? Read on to find out.
As mentioned above, SoundHound offers the same kind of service as Shazam, …
