GLOBAL – We’ve looked at apps you can touch, now it’s the turn of those of you that use good old buttons. In this week’s round-up from OviDailyApp, we’re looking at apps that are built for the touch-resistant. Ditch the touchscreen and scrub-up your keyboard. Join us after the jump for three of the top Series 40 apps on offer.
Here’s one for all those singletons out there. Forget the GSOH, WLTM, ASL, LMK and PSA, Flirtomatic will have you chatting to people from around the world in seconds. Using the app for the first time, you’ll have to prove you’re 18 and log in with all your details. Once that’s done, get your best chat-up lines ready. As soon as Flirtomatic opens you’ll be shown different option where you can search nearby flirts, change your profile settings, add pictures or rate other users. From time-to-time you’ll come across a few options within the app that require flirt points. This doesn’t mean you need to head to the bar to buy a drink.You can earn flirt points if people rated you as good or if you are the first one to receive an answer from a new flirt. If you can’t earn enough through this, you can purchase over 1,000 flirt points for £5 (the equivalent of buying a drink). These flirt points allow you to check out things like who rated you and with how much. All in all, this is a must-have app for everyone who likes to socialise, meet new people and just generally have a good old natter. Flirtomatic is free and is available to download from Ovi Store now.
Next up, we have an app designed for news junkies, Webwag. Designed to keep you informed, Webwag is a widget customising app with a difference. Unlike most others, Webwag allows you to change the size of every individual widget to show more, or less, information on your screen. So, if you’re more of a fan of footie scores than the FTSE 500 you’ll have more space for the former. Also, when you click on a widget, the content automatically rises to the top of the screen, making it easier for you to digest its offerings. Another cool option is the ability to send widgets that you’re using in Webwag to friends via mobile messaging, so if you like certain content, you can easily share it with someone else. The app also includes more than just news-related content, although that is clearly a big focus. There are games, and comics, Flickr-based searches that can be customized by keyword, sticky notes for to-do lists, and much more. Here’s a video of the app running on an S40 device. If that doesn’t convince you, it’s free to download, too.
Last, but by no means least, we have ebuddy. We recently caught-up with ebuddy‘s CEO , Jan-Joost Rueb – JJ, for short – to find out why the app has recently hit two million downloads on Ovi Store after just four months. You guys are still loving the app and some of its popularity could be down to the range of devices it’s available on, including Series 40. For those not in the ebuddy-know it’s an app that syncs all your IM services in one place, allowing you to know which of your friends are online and chat to them. Once you have eBuddy installed on your Nokia device, it is easy to set up and begin chatting. Within the Settings for the app, you can quickly add individual accounts, including: Yahoo, AIM, MSN, ICQ, MySpace, GTalk – and Facebook. Best of all, the app is free to download from Ovi Store.
