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. You should definitely download some cell-screen optimized porn, just to test the (major) real-world application of mobile computing.

  3. I have a couple suggestions, and some linkage.

    Symella-P2P downloading right from your N95 over EDGE or WLAN. (http://www.aut.bme.hu/portal/SymellaDownload.aspx)

    Symtorrent-Download torrents right to your N95 over EDGE or WLAN. (http://www.aut.bme.hu/PORTAL/SymTorrentDownload.aspx?id=524b4cb8-7823-43f3-891c-983cbcfe4945)

    Salling Clicker-Control your Media Player from your N95 over WLAN or Bluetooth. (http://www.sallingsoftware.com)

    Just to get you started. Hope you’re enjoying your new phone. :)

  5. Oh, you may also want to give a pair of Bluetooth headphones a whirl, since the N95 does indeed have the A2DP Bluetooth profile to support such hardware.

  10. Try the Nokia Sports Tracker app, and something like Locr will help you geo tag photos (although I think Shozu does too). Both are ideal for your next photo walk!

  12. You should look at jaiku, fring, the gmail app and as a geek putty for series60 3rd edition

  14. but fring of course. Fully optimised for the N95, allows you to talk VoIP with fring, skype and googletalk users.

    Make sure you have a flat contract though; here is europe with 3G being quite universal, it works remarkably well.

  16. Robert, I’ve got a few I’ll recommend with a bit of linkage:

    Fring – great VOIP app, now has twitter alerts incorporated, can use it with msn, etc

    Seven – Perfect for push exchange email and pop3 email, as well as gmail, yahoo, and others, currently in open beta

    Spodtronic – will handle all your podcast needs and you can also use it for internet radio

    and of course the N95 WOM world for the latest in the social media about the device, apps, etc :)

  18. A bit beyond my blogging techniques for now (but I’m trying to learn). Could you direct me to a page that discusses how to properly embed a YouTube video, as you have clearly done? I am using a plugin and it works okay with one WordPress theme but not another, but it also does not show in the feeds: just a link does. What I am using may work okay for my readers, which is what I most care about, but I want to ensure I am doing the best I can technically with this.

    I know you’re busy beyond belief, but would much appreciate some advice.

    Thank you much.

  20. How is your battery life now that you are running Shozu? Many people have experienced drained batteries, as the Shozu application runs 24/7 in the background…

    It is a pity, because it seems to be the only interesting application that can do many things, including blogging and GeoTagging…

  22. I also found that ShoZu (which I’ve used extensively on other S60 devices) completely killed my N95. Caused random lockups and shutdowns, as well as murdered my battery life.

  24. Check out the UPnP stuff in this article. Very cool stuff and interesting that it uses open standards etc. Also there’s a bunch of other info on the above site. Personal favourites are Nokia’s Podcasting app and Nokia Internet Radio (plays arious streams). Epocware, Psiloc, Wildpalm and Zingmagic all have some interesting basic apps and games. e.g. Sync your text messages to Gamil, location aware profiles, font magnifier, puzzle games, weather stuff.

    Others have already mentioned Fring but there are a whole load of VoIP solution – Barablue, Truphone, Gizmo and the truth is any VoiP service will work if you get the settings entered, the above just provide easier set up via wizards.

    You probably already know about Google Maps, but check out the third part GMaps which combines the Yahoo, MSN, Google service etc + more into one application. Other location apps include Viewranger (UK only), GETrack (the combine with photos to geotag (or geotag using Shozu just have the gps application (in the tools folder) on at the same time as taking photos – shozu does the rest.

    There’s load of stuff – really depends what your thing is!

  26. 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.

  28. 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.

  30. 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:
    http://forum.shozu.com/showthread.php?tid=545

    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,

    Mark
