I’m in love!
At first it doesn’t looke like much, but after a coupple of seconds tinkering I get it. It’s so much faster, easier and lot more fun to use. The  app is undergoing a major redesign and now includes several much-requested features, including new support for high-res photos, post sharing, and Facebook Timeline(!).

Everything is better, and this is what the app should have been right from the start. With swiping left and right to get your groups, friends etc. Now get this this ready and public!

Facebook home – pushes everything else to the “Dark side of the phone”

There’s been a lot of talk during the last year of a “facebook phone”. Zuckerberg have been denying it, referring to the fact that a facebook phone wouldn’t even “move the needle” when it comes to market shares – he’s probably right. So what to do when you want to “move the needle”?

Marketing method = E P I  C

instalove

Not really the app we hoped for, but a pretty slick and funny way to put some positive pressure on Instagram by Nokia and Windows Phone.The app allows you to take photos, add a classic Polaroid filter to them and post them to your social networks with the hashtag #2InstaWithLove.

Lumia 800 fever!

Windows Phone is not really new to me, and the Lumia 800 is actually my third wp7 device. But anyway – a new phone is a new phone.

Compared to my previous HTC Throphy and Samsung Omnia 7 it’s really a different league all together. The Lumia is superior in both quality and design, and Nokia has som real killer apps like “Nokia Drive” and “Maps”. But compared to my Galaxy S2 the match is more even.. and im really havin a hard time choosing one of them (luckly i dont have to)

So right now it’s Lumia 800 for work and Galaxy S2 for play

At last! Official Facebook Application For The Nokia E71 & E72

For some reason Nokia decided NOT to announce this news.. 
The Facebook app. works really nice, and finally support to upload photos to your Facebook account. It’s still the same old infantile comments from the same old people so no help there I’m afraid.

What people really should ask themselves before updating their status is, “Should I go kill myself instead of updating my status on Facebook?” In most cases the answer would be yes..

It should work on all S60v3 devices so check it out from Ovi Store in your E71 or by the link below.

Spotify + Symbian = Symbify or Spotian?

Finally Spotify arrives to Symbian, just in time when I’m about to enter the world of Maemo and N900.. Doh!
Anyway it’s great news and my initial test is overall positive on the Nokia E71. You need a premium account ofc (and a mobile phone.. eh).
Actually i wish they could make more applications like this for Symbian – nice, tidy, fast and easy to use (that kinda says a lot about most applications for Symbian – ugly, sucks ass and hard to use..).

Head over to m.spotify.com with in your phones browser and see if you can run it on yours!

If youre still in doubt, head over to Symbian-Guru.com to check this overwiev out

Tricknology

With easter comming up, it’s “All play and no work” as usual! 🙂

Surfing on the Nokia 5800 is a breeze tbh, but I really miss the keyboard of the Nokia E71, there’s relly no substitute for a real keyboard, if done right. Watching video, listening to music and surfing is good fun on the 5800, Nokia even got the Facebook app to FAIL misarbly.. You still can’t upload your pictures to facebook, doh!

Facebook and Share Online
And still no support for uploading to Facebook in Nokias own “Share Online” app, wtf is up with that? I’ll tell you what’s up, it’s OVI – nokias media sharing, calendar, networking crap!

Why reinvent the wheel? What’s killing people these day are the hundreds of different applications for sharing media online, keeping track of friends etc. So Nokia decided we needed yet another one called “OVI” (!) Geez!

With the amount of people using facebook, why is it so hard to to get some support for it in “Share Online” on the Nokia devices so we can share our pictures fast and simple? Really, it’s this kind of crap that makes users wanna buy a iPhone.

Does anyone really like OVI?
This weeks msg goes out to the lead designer of the “Share Online” app. in all the Nokia Symbian devices – GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER FFS! You managed to get flickr in there, now go get some support for uploading images straight to facebook. Do you really think anyone gives a **** about OVI?

When done this way, it’s no longer “Technology”, it’s “Tricknology”..

Yes you’re right I’m god damn angry!
