YouTubing from the N95

I finally have a phone that can really run Shozu properly. Here’s my first “hello world” video. Programmers always test their programming tools by doing a “hello world” application: a minimal app that basically writes “hello world” on the screen. So, I had Maryam say hello to you all. Oh, I always call her “Goofy.” She calls me that too. Actually she says she’s “Goofy’s keeper.” Ahh, these are the depths we’ve sunk to: revealing our stupid nicknames on YouTube.

Shozu is a cool service. Lets you upload photos and videos to all sorts of different services without using email from your phone. Highly recommended.

This is great stuff cause now I can get video up from my cell phone immediately from news events.

What other mobile apps should I try on my Nokia phone?

  1. 2Naveen: Can WVIGO convert YouTube movie clips in one mouse move and upload to device? And how well WVIGO converts DVD movies?

  2. Hi there
    Thanks for your comments on ShoZu. I’d just like to respond to the question on battery life as we’ve seen it come up in other blogs before. There’s a great post on our forum from our Client Architect which I hope sheds a bit more light on this:

    We are working on an official version for the N95 which addresses a couple of issues and will also wake the GPS in the background automatically so you can tag your pics. The problem with the N95 is that the GPS antenna takes quite a long time to get signal lock so we are working around that (in the meantime you can simply have the Nokia Maps or Sportstracker app running in the background and we’ll detect your coordinates).

    Hope this helps and happy to see you having fun with our app!

    Best,

  4. There is a good list of Symbian 3rd edition essentials over at http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/features/item/S60_3rd_Edition_Essentials.php

    The coolest app I have on my N73 is the SlingPlayer, but I think that the Symbian version is only available via 3 here in the UK.

    Shozu is great (and from my hassles with my old SE K750i the team behind it are really helpful too), however as I tend to want to use photoshop to clean up the pictures from my N73 I don’t tend to use it that much to upload to Flickr. Looking at the shots you’ve uploaded to Flickr so far the N95 seems to be producing better images though.

  6. Hi Robert! Followed you for some time now. Always worth the read. Keep up the good work!

    My essentials are:

    let’s start with The Bookmark at my N95′s S60 Browser:

    http://www.google.com/reader/m.. :)

    Apps:

    Nokia podcasting app:

    http://europe.nokia.com/podcasting

    Gmail on the go:
    http://mail.google.com/mail/help/intl/en/about_mobile.html

    And Google has maps to offer as well.

    Opera mini:

    http://www.operamini.com/

    this is another browser, not as good as the Nokia’s (IMO), but if you pay a lot for your data service plan, this is good little java app.

    And don’t forget to check out the latest at Nokia Beta Labs (you can find Sports Tracker, Wellness Diary and Gizmo project from here):

    http://www.nokia.com/betalabs

    LifeBlog is a favorite of mine:

    http://r2.nokia.com/nokia/0,,71739,00.html

    I have used Nokia smartphones for four years now and I have everything (pictures, videos, voice memos, text notes and SMS’s/MMS’s) from that time in a chronological order in my PC.

    And you should install PC-Suite:

    http://www.nokia.com/pcsuite

    to your computer, it makes everything so much easier than 3rd party app’s in offer for the same tasks.

    BTW, the N95 can be configured to uppload posts and pictures to http://www.vox.com and Flickr…and mayby to other services as well. Just check out the service providers mobile FAQ and there you find what you need if it’s there.
