Nokia last night introduced the shiny new Nokia 5530 Xpress Music handset to the South African market at an exclusive event hosted in the Holiday Inn, Sandton. After the event everyone in attendance was issued with a review handset to use for a period of 12 months. Wow thanx Nokia
The shiny new Nokia 5530 Xpress Music is a low cost device and supports the same applications as the Nokia 5800 and N97. Most applications can be easily downloaded via the Nokia Ovi Store. I thought it may be good to do a post showing the applications I have personally found to be the most useful on my review handset, the sexy new Nokia 5530 Xpress music.
Please note that my list of top 10 must have apps for the 5530 includes both free and premium services.
- fring – Lets you talk, chat and interact freely between: Skype, Yahoo, MSN, ICQ, Twitter, Facebook, GoogleTalk, AIM, SIP, Gmail Notifier, LastFM, Orkut and Yandex
- JoikuSpot – Turns your mobile handset into a secure WLAN (Wi-Fi) HotSpot.
- Gmail – Google’s free email service – this is the best email service on earth.
- Google Maps – Possibly the best free mobile mapping software available.
- Shazam – Amazingly powerful music search application
- BrightLight – Turns your handset into a handy torch.
- Accuweather – The best weather application on the 5530. It’s also in the download menu on handset.
- Best Screensnap – A cool application for taking screenshots. In the download menu on handset.
- Qik – A cool live video streaming service.
- Digia Web Browser – The best touch screen web browser available.
This is my current Top 10 and when more applications become available the list will change
