Your favourite Symbian Apps of all time


Right off the assembly line
Symbian has been one of the most customizable and open operating systems, allowing file-system access since the now-ancient Nokia 6600.

Name three (or 'n') of your favourite Symbian apps, and tell us why you love them.

[Btw, I am Harman and this is for a feature in the next issue of Digit]


Grand Master
I have Nokia 5800 and my fav application is

4.Ion Batterytimer


Uhu, Not Gonna Happen!
I have many applications that I install/uninstall depending on usage. For example, to be able to remotely access your PC over internet is nice to do but is not required all the time. Then a game like Akinator which is good application to show to your friends (it guesses the name of the celebrity you are thinking based on a questionnaire). But apps which I cannot live without are:

1. NGPAY - Immense number of eShops (including IRCTC train booking option)
2. MobileRediff - Send any number of free sms through internet (but other person will see your number in "From:"
3. YourTube - Allows you to download any YouTube video on mobile for later
4. Opera Mobile - No explanation needed
5. Nimbuzz - Allows me to call my friends abroad at cheap rates (it doubles as messneger too)
6. UC Player - The VLC/Classic Media Player for Symbian S60


these are must have applications for my e63
1. Opera mini
2. Google maps
3. Nimbuzz
4. Ngpay
5. Skype
