Top Apps for Nokia E72

Nokia e72

It’s been a while since I started using the Nokia E72 as may primary phone. Sometimes I try other mobiles to test Nimbuzz but I keep coming back to the E72. Testing a vast amount of apps over time, and after reading dedicated Nokia blogs, I ended up with 5 apps that I use most on my E72.  Now I would like to share this top with you in case you are looking for some useful apps for your own Nokia mobile.

So here it goes, my top 5 E72 apps:

  1. Sport Tracker – fitness app for Nokia! (free) For my routine runs I like to keep track of my performances so I can improve over time. This app is perfect for that. It uses GPS to calculate the speed, the distance and the altitude. It also  calculates how many calories you have burned, how many steps I made and the average number of steps per minute.  If you want you can also set your self previous training as a target and you info while you are running if you are ahead or behind the target and if you are prepared to spend some extra money you can get your self a “Polar for Nokia” hear rate belt so you can track your pulse. In a way this is very similar to Nike+ solution for iPod and iPhones, only it’s cheaper and you need anything else than a phone to use it :D.

  3. Qik – streaming app!(free) These days it’s all about real time. It’s not about “I will” or “I was”, no it’s about here and now and Qik lets me share that with all my friends via video streaming. Sometimes I just turn it on while on the train, to share the nice landscape that goes by, sometimes during urban events like marathons or at concerts to capture the atmosphere :D. And the cool part is that I can share the video on Twitter and Facebook so all my friends can see it in the same time.  Pretty awesome I would say.

  5. Spotify -for my music!(paid) Spotify for your desktop is nice but it’s way nicer for your mobile. With it you can listen to your favorite music on the go, download the playlists and subscribe to lists your friends made. I like it because it’s really organized and I can discover a lot of new great music. Another good alternative is Grooveshark (paid) but it’s not as organized as Spotify, yet you can find tracks that are not on Spotify.  Both apps come with a monthly subscription that can be terminated at any time: Spotify is  € 9,99/month and Grooveshark 3$/month.

  7. Nimbuzz – for free calling, chatting and Twitter! (free) Since I am an expat, a lot of my friends are back home and if I would have to call them via my mobile operator I would some serious costs at the end of the month. With Nimbuzz I can call them for free via Internet (VoIP) calls and still have some money for a brew at the end of the month :P. Really useful I would say. Also sometimes I like to share moments just with my closest friends not with everybody on Facebook and the way I do it is with Nimbuzz via chat, by sending them pictures or videos or even send them direct messages on Twitter :D . This app helps me stay close to everybody even while miles away. I strongly recommend it for social networking and communication.

  9. Nokia OviMaps – finding my way home (free). This app is better than Google Maps due to it’s accurate instructions, rotating screen and the voice over,  which was a surprise for me. I simply love it and use it all the time while walking. OviMaps helps me find my way to new stores, touristic attractions in other cities even give direction to people on the street that are looking for a certain place. I might not know it but the this apps always give me the right directions… turn by turn :D.

Even though I made this top for my Nokia E72 the applications are also available for other Nokia model so worth looking into it;). And now that you know my top 5 apps for Nokia eE2, what are your favorite apps? What can you recommend me :P ?
