5 Must Have Apps for Nokia Phones

Phones these days normally can download and run mobile software or simply, applications or apps. Luckily, not only those who have high-end phones can have those things. Most Nokia phones support a lot of apps and in fact, there’s even a storefront just for it. On this post, I will list the 5 apps that Nokia phone users should try.

1. JoikuSpot Wi-Fi Hotspot

The first on my list is definitely JoikuSpot. JoikuSpot simply fills the gap that Symbian smartphones have for a long time now – absence of built-in tethering support. The application is very straightforward and easy to use. Just tap or press the Start button and you instantly have a roving Wi-Fi hotspot! Additional settings are available like setting an encryption as well as limiting data usage.

As a person who’s living in Metro Manila, the MMDA app for Nokia is also a must-have. Using this app, you can view the current traffic situation from major thoroughfares around the Metro, such as EDSA, C5, South Luzon Expressway, Roxas Blvd. and more. Three viewing options are available, the neat and simple System view; the Map view which you can pan around, and the Line view which lists out all sections of a given route. Did I mention it’s free?

3. iTyphoon

Well, iTyphoon is a really handy and must-have app for everyone too! Being in the Philippines which hardly gets a break from typhoons, this app will just help us check out on where’s a typhoon currently is and it’s track. You can check out information on a particular storm system, it’s location and it’s distance from your location, as well as make a preparedness list. Overall, it gets the job done. Currently, this app is only available for S40 phones.

4. CNN

I like reading news and articles on what’s happening around, and the CNN app for Nokia does just that. It’s built beautifully and presents the content in a nice way. Videos on selected articles are available for you to watch. You can also submit news reports to CNN in the iReport section. Found an interesting piece? Sharing is just a couple taps away.

5. Cut the Rope

A must-have apps list isn’t complete without a single game on it. So here am I adding Cut the Rope. My brains just like solving each of hundred levels on this game. The music is very catchy, and Om Nom is just too cute to resist! This game is really worth the money and has a lot of replay value. Bet you can’t solve them all.

Gravity – The best Twitter app for Symbian

And not to be forgotten by me, the best Twitter client for Symbian that I always use when I still own the N8. Gravity is just fast, simple, and it supports other social networking services too like Facebook, foursquare, and more. The best part is it supports most Symbian devices from the likes of Nokia E71 to the likes of Nokia 808 PureView.
