The 7 Best Apps From Symbian Application Development

Author : Aman Singh

Some say that Symbian Application Development is not as exciting as iPhone or Blackberry application development; I have prepared a list of my favorite 7 apps available on Symbian to counter this accusation.

Many feel that Symbian is losing battle against BlackBerry, iPhone and Android-based smartphones. While Symbian's market share has reduced over time, especially in Asian and European markets where Nokia handsets have dominated the market for years. One of the reasons often given is the advent of smartphones and the app culture that has developed around them.

It has been often said that Symbian application development has not taken off as well as that of its rivals iPhone and BlackBerry, but over 300,000 apps are downloaded every day on Nokia devices, and there are numerous Symbian apps in the market. Below is the list of my favorite 7 Symbian apps.

Gravity: This application by Mobileways allows user to access their Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare and other social networking accounts. It also makes the task of uploading photos quicker and easier for most of the popular sites,including Flickr and TwitPic. It especially good for Twitter users as it has almost all the features you would find on a desktop Twitter app.

Best Screen Shot: The names says it all-it does give the best screen shot you can get, and you can also send the screen shots to your friends and your desktop. It lets you save the screenshot as color BMP, JPG and 256 color BMP, and also auto-generates names for the images, making your task easier.

Qik: This app is an example of smart Symbian application development. It allows you to broadcast/stream your videos over the internet using your phone camera. It's amazing when you can see the comments of the viewers as your performance continues.

Handy Taskman: This app will make using your smartphone simpler and will let you manage multiple applications with ease and élan. You can get a bigger view of your app listing after installing Handy Taskman and it makes switching and force closing frozen applications painless. It displays your RAM and available storage options, and does a lot more to make handling your smartphone trouble-free.

Joikuspot: Symbian application development has delivered a gem-Joikuspot turns your computer into a Wi-Fi hotspot, people accustomed to tethering must try this, it works better. You can use your laptop anywhere once you have this app. Its premium version is of great use as it comes with a password, and makes it impossible for any other users to steal from your Wi-Fi!

Google Maps: I was very happy when Google Maps was made available to Symbian. It fits perfectly with the Symbian look and its features that let me know my position and shows me my destination on the map. Now I never need to ask for directions.

Shazam: Has it ever happened that you are at a mall or at on the road and you hear some amazing music playing and want to know who the artist is? Shazam is the gift of Symbian application development to random music lovers-you just need to let this app listen to a part of the song and it will come up with the names of the artist and the band!
