Read your text messages with SMS Preview

SMS Preview in actionHave you ever wanted to see text messages displayed on your glasses or maybe read incoming SMS using your brain power? Well, even if it not yet possible (at least not without being assimilated by the Borg :)) there is a very useful and free application, which simply displays next text message content on your display. No action is needed, no button needs to be pressed. You can choose for long the message body is going be to displayed and later of course read and reply the message as usual. I find it very useful during the meeting for example. The application called “SMS Preview” is available for free and requires sending only one message to register it. It can be downloaded directly with your mobile browser from m.smspreview.mobi, with your desktop browser from smspreview.net or from the Ovi Store: store.ovi.com.

What to update this week on your E71?

Well, we have not available next firmware for E71, but in last several days there were released a few really popular and cool applications for E71 and other S60 devices.

Nokia Sports Tracker has been updated from version 2.05 to 2.06. You can get it by choosing in menu of your already installed application: Option > Check for Updates.

Nimbuzz – this multi-IM and voice communicator had a major update to version 2.0 which has a new organized in tabs user interface. Full information on changes in this version can be found here at Nimbuzz Blog

All last.fm users can now fully enjoy Mobbler – S60 last.fm client. Previous version 0.4.4 introducing Web Services has been quickly updated to version 0.4.5, which is free of following known issues:

  • the font we were selecting was not working properly on some phones,
  • some devices could not play radio because they do not support the equalizer,
  • updated the Swedish translation.

I know some of my blog readers have encountered last week this font issue.

The Best now even Better – Nokia Sports Tracker 2.05

Nokia Sports Tracker 2.05The Best is now even better. How is it so? Well, I know this is my personal opinion only, but Nokia Sports Tracker is my favorite S60 application and I see its functionality as the most enjoyable feature added to a mobile phone.

If you don’t know this application simply install it and use it. You will know what I mean. For current users there is good information, which you could discover by yourself, last weekend. If you have turned on feature of automatic updated checking you might upgrade from version 1.76 or 1.82 to official 2.05. This version was officially released with Bluetooth Polar training accessories, but now can be installed on other devices as well. New NST 2.05 officially supports displaying maps in a background too. I hope it free of known problem with move measuring freeze. I know that a lot of users, including me, waits for information if heart rate meter will be compatible with E71 and other S60 phones.

It seems that NST team is very busy, as the official application site still offers version 1.78 only. Anyway even if you will install older release, you should be able to update later to 2.05 directly from your phone. I have updated both my phones E71 and N96, unfortunately I didn’t get the update on my Mom’s N80. Let’s hope older phones (S60 3.0) will be supported too.

Video ringtones on E71?

Do you use video ringtones on your E71? I admit I haven’t used it so far. One of blog readers sent me a link to his video ringtone based on Metal Solid Gear theme. If you are interested in check it on You Tube.

If you like it you can download one of versions: 320×240 3GP file , or 320×183 3GP file optimized for SkyCaller Pro application as the author said. I’m curious how many users of E71 are using pictures attached to phonebook contacts (I do) or video ringtones?
