review of applications i have downloaded here and tried (nokia 6630 s60)
i didnt want to post each review separately so i decided to compile them all in one post...
this might help other people here who are interested in a certain app
call counter --- installs but doesnt work (tried it on a 6600 as well)
anti-thief --- installs but doesnt work. when you click on the app to start, it doesnt start (tried it on a 6600 as well)
mobile security --- doesnt work
mydiary --- doesnt work. also, when you install this app, it will also install other apps as well (i think it was three other apps)
philips camcorder s60 version --- there are a lot of versions of phiips camcorder but the only one that worked fine was the 1.03 version (tried it on a 6600 as well)
phone secure 1.12 --- same problem with anti-thief. however, i tried it on a 6600 and it starts. havent tested whether it will indeed sound an alarm if you send a sms message
avec radio --- works but not as i thought. its a radio but you will need gprs connection for it to work
phone bites april fools --- works but not as described. the description says insert weird and funny sounds into your live calls and voicemail and revel in their confusion. dont know about the voicemail thing but it doesnt work on live calls. tried this once while having a conversation with my girlfriend but she didnt hear anything
sms counter --- works fine. a good app to check on sms usage. very useful for me as it tells me how much sms i have sent (and received) each day
image plus 2.13 --- works fine. a good app to edit images and place additional things like a frame, a beard, flowers, arrows, etc. Nokia 6630 has a built in photo editor but it only has the basic functions like adjust contrast, brightness, etc. features that this app also has plus more.
call recorder --- works fine. a good app to record calls. i set it to auto record on each call i make/receive. especially useful when i have a conversation with someone and the details are quite sketchy. i just play the recorded conversation and listen carefully on details i may have missed. then i delete the conversion. files are saved on amr (or wave) so it doesnt take too much memory space.
msg storer --- works fine. app to transfer sms to txt file for storage (like on a PC). i use this app so i can transfer quotes to other phones free via bluetooth
smart birthday --- works fine. app to integrate an alarm to contacts. by default you can add a birthday on your contacts but you cannot set an alarm, you have to do it separately. with this app, it can be done in a few simple steps
handy photo safe --- works fine. app to hide images from view. if you want to hide some images in case someone else browses your phone, this app is for you. however, one drawback is that images stored in the 'safe' will be transferred to phone memory.
smart crypto --- works fine. this app can encrypt any file on your phone. a better alternative to handy photo safe. however, one drawback though is that if you want to view the file you encrypted, you have to decrypt it first, exit the app and open the file with the corresponding app for it (e.g. realplayer for videos)
simworks anti virus --- works fine. protects your phone from viruses. sets an interval in which it will scan your phone (max of 12 hours--it will scan your phone every 12hours). one thing that got me apprehensive about this program is that on my PC, my anti-virus detected a symbian virus on the installation file itself. though its probably harmless, it is still cause for some concern
mum sms --- works fine. app to hide sms from your inbox. it can be configured to add a certain number (or contact) to the blacklist or the whitelist. if its in the blacklist, if i receive an sms from that certain number, it will automatically be hidden from the inbox. hence, you wont get a 1 new message but rather a custom message you want from the app itself (like oops..sorry, false alarm you have no new messages). only problem with the app is that if you receive around 3 consecutive messages that is in the blacklist, monitoring will be turned off. you will have to turn off the phone and start it again to be able to turn on monitoring again.
profimail --- works fine. has two apps, profimail and profiexplorer. i personally just use the profiexplorer. its a very good file manager since it will bypass the built in protection on certain phones like the nokia 6630 in which you wont be able to send files like .sis through bluetooth. with this file manager, you can send these files without any problem
jumbo sms --- works fine. useful app. contains tons of quotes and templates you can use. simply open the app, browse to the template you want and select send sms. (limited to 160 characters only)
smart movie 2.75 --- works fine. havent fully tested this app yet but so far, i havent encountered any problems yet
***there were other apps that didnt work but i couldnt quite recall them anymore. i will try to keep a list in the future of all apps i installed so i would know which ones worked and which ones dont.
