Locr Logo Geotagging

Locr is an amazing software. I first discovered it in my father’s Nokia E71 (review soon). Anyway, i installed it on my Asus P320’s windows mobile, thank god the version worked on my phone also even though it was meant for windows mobile 5 and my phone has windows mobile 6.1.

So it has versions for both windows mobile and symbian, so far so good. So the long and short of it. The software allows you to easily embed the information about the GPS coordinates of the location you took your photo. This info is easily recognised by Flickr and Zooomr. So you can actually see the photos you took on a map (and trust me it looks awesome).

Currently i have taken only photos at my house, so i cant show you the feature for privacy’s sake. So i will show you the photos in locations when i go out. Your phone must have GPS for this feature.

Game : Sky Force 1.1

Platform : Symbian

[Rating:4]

An awesome game where you can choose between three crafts and three difficulty levels, you must kill different kinds of planes, boats , destroy lighthouses, rescue humans, collect medals, upgrade weapons systems to complete this thriller of a game.

The only shortcoming for this game is that it finishes pretty fast, but it has an average replayability.

Name Of Game : Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2

Platform : Symbian

[rating:3]

This the first game we tested(fancy name for played), Game Reviews are really tough to write as Games are pretty darn expensive, but thankfully one of my friends had a licensed copy (i hope) . Anyway GRAW 2 is a game by Gameloft.

Its an action game which features weapons like Guns and Grenades and automatic rifles. The game has a handy continue feature so that you dont have to do everything from the extreme start, you can continue from the last checkpoint.

You are Captain Mitchell of the US military and must defeat the terrorists and assist your fellow soldiers. The game has similarities to real life combat also, you can hide behind sand bags , walk in shadows and kill people with stealth by getting close to them. All in all, one awesome action filled package.

Software : Fring VOIP

URL : http://www.fring.com

Platform : Symbian

[rating:3.5]

Everyone who uses the internet knows about the benefits of Skype. It allows you to make free PC to PC calls and paid PC to phone ones. But its always a nuisance to switch on your computer , connect the Mic and the Speakers/Headphones and talk like you are the Radio Communicator of some 1950s war movie.

So i searched for a Symbian utility that would help me make calls over GPRS and pretty soon i landed my hands on this nifty utility. ITs called Fring and is by an Israel based company (i think). It allows you to make free Skype, MSN and Gtalk calls from your GPRS enabled symbian handset.

The method  to install Fring is a little bit weird, you must first register your telephone number on Fring and they will send you an SMS with the URL to the download location. On clicking the link Fring will be downloaded and installed to your phone.

So what is Fring and how does it work, Fring enables the usage of VoIP over mobile phones and hence make life a little bit easier for us. It means like i call people from Skype,Google Talk and MSN using my computer , the same can be done by a mobile phone. I talk on my cellphone like its a regular call and it doesn’t cost a thing.

My Experience

My experience has been a mixed one. I am using the 2.0 version which does not have SIP.

Its  a nice software. Enabled me to make calls with my Airtel Mobile Office GPRS account. But there was a 1-3 second lag probably due to Airtel’s slow connection. And another thing is that the Application is somewhat unstable. The application crashed often on my Symbian phone leaving its backend UA clent working. But free lunch is always good. I enjoy using it, the convienience is unmatched and the voice quality is pretty good when my internet is working nicely. All in all a great software and highly reccomended.

Caution

We reccomend you create special accounts for usage with Fring, as you have to disclose your login and password to their utility.

Well expect lots of Symbian and PALM OS mobile application reviews, my new Nokia N series handset is great and can run most of the popular Symbian as well as J2ME applications.

Software : Gmail Application For Mobile

URL : http://www.gmail.com/app (Open with mobile phone only)

Platforms : J2ME and Symbian

[rating:4]

The GMAIL Mobile Application enables you to check your GMAIL account using your phone and a GPRS (or EDGE) connection. Your mobile phone must have a proper security certificate to communicate with the GMAIL server. For Airtel India users, the mobile office plan will do the trick, it costs 500 rupees a month(or was it 499, big psychological edge any management student will tell you).
Logging Into GMAIL

Gmail Mobile Application Login

When you open the application, you will be prompted to select a connection, choose your GPRS connection which allows ou to access all sites.Then enter your username(BTW we don’t own wisetechie username on gmail) and password, the GMAIL application will log you in pretty quickly. The Application will then display your Inbox. At this stage Google by default starts pre-fetching your emails, so opening them is almost instantaneous.
