Top 10 Applications For Nokia 5530/5800/X6/N97

Here are the top 10 Applications for Nokia Symbian 60 v5 based phones like Nokia 5530, Nokia 5800, Nokia X6, Nokia N97 and Nokia N97 Mini.

10) Y-Browser The ultimate File Manger for Symbian based phones developed by Dr. Jukka. Even though the inbuilt File Manager of Symbian phones is quite good, Y-Browser just takes managing files on your phone to the next level.5800_handytaskman_s60_5_en_1 Y-Browser even allows access to System Drives of a Symbian phone which the inbuilt File Manager lacks. Dr. Jukka has even made many plugins, for Y-Browser like the ability to open and edit text files from within Y-Browser and so on. You can download Y-Browser from here.

9) Google Maps – Google Maps from Google is a must have application for your phone. Nowadays, all the latest symbian phones feature an inbuilt GPS chip, Google Maps takes advantage of it and the cellphone towers to pin point your location and to guide you through your city. Even though Nokia phones comes with Ovi Maps pre-installed, Google Maps just blows it away with a better detailed map of your city. The Layers and Street View features of Google Maps act as an icing on the cake. You can download Google Maps by going to from your mobile phone web browser.

8) Handy Taskman – The inbuilt task manager of S60 smartphones is quite limited. It does not show the amount of free RAM, process running in the background etc. This is where Handy Taskman comes in. Not only does Handy Taskman shows the amount of free RAM, it even allows you to kill process or applications which might have hung. Handy Taskman also features a ‘Favorites’ tab where you can create a list of your frequently used applications for quick access to them. Here is a link to Handy Taskman official product page.

7) Nokia Messaging This has to be the ultimate email Messaging client for Nokia phones. Nokia Messaging has Kinetic scrolling, can display mails in HTML, and on top of that, the push email feature works like a charm. The only thing missing in Nokia Messaging is the ability to view your mails in Fullscreen, and the developers have said that they will add this feature in the next build of Nokia Messaging. You can download Nokia Messaging by pointing your phones web browser to

6) Bright Light Most of the smartphones come equipped with at least a Single LED Flash to aid photography in the night. Not many people click pictures from their smartphones and so the LED flash is left unused. With Bright Light one can use the LED Flash of the phone as a torch. The application has  a very simple interface like a On/Off “Switch”. The ability to use the LED flash of your phone as a torch is very handy and thus, this application is a must have for your20frpjq phone. Bright Light is available for free download at the Ovi Store.
