Well, so far it’s been more than 2 months I’m using the all new Nokia N95 8GB, and i’ve tested a lot of applications.
In the last post on this topic, I introduced 5 applications that I had personally installed and tested.
As promised, I’ll post 5 more this time, numbers follow…
6- Salling Clicker
This makes your phone as a remote form your computer over the bluetooth and even over WIFI if you’ve got a WIFI network around. I’ve installed and tested this app, works nice with inbuilt windows bluetooth drivers and has a lot of functions and even the possibility of making your own scripts. For example, I can control the Windows Media Player (mine’s 11) from the phone, and when listening to music (on the computer) if the phone rings, the application automatically stops the music, decreases system volume and shows a popup windows on the monitor to show that someone’s calling!! (this can be enabled/disable). There are lots of functionallities. If you wanna get a remote control for your pc (even mac) this is the best for the moment 😉

You may need some plugins and 3rd party scripts, google and search also the forums, but if you don’t find anything, just leave comments on this post and i’ll upload some scripts and plugins too.
7- ALON MP3 Dictaphone
Here’s a nice dictaphone app, which can record your calls automatically, record voice (even the radio) in MP3 format and has the ability to increase or decrease the microphone gain! which lets you record even very small sounds :D!
Get it here: (Trial version) The Full one costs about 30$! http://www.alonsoftware.com/products/dictaphone_s60_3rd.htm
8- Nokia Maps 2 (Beta version)
At last we got something very nice from Nokia for the GPS stuff! They took so long!
Nokia Maps 2, has got a way better interface and a lot of functionality improvements and precision. Still in the beta (test) version, but there seems to be no stability issues till now (be carefull to install it only on latest firmware which is till date v. 15.0.015

9- Y-Browser (from Yucca Tools)
This is very useful if you got stuff in your inbox and the phone doesn’t let you move them in the mass memory! that’s pretty wierd from Nokia to have such a dump bug, but with the help of this app, you can browse all your drives and even see hidden and system files.
But be very carefull with system files, you don’t want to “BRICK” your phone.
My advice is that you install the app, and install the ‘mailbox’ plugin so you can directly access your ‘My Folders’ inside the mailbox, from there you can move the stuff which are stuck.
Usually Free, Get it Here: http://www.drjukka.com/YBrowser.html
This is a very nice application, which uses the accelerometer inside N95 to make it like a Wheel, Mouse and Joystick! I did play Need For Speed Most Wanted with my phone on the PC, using my phone as the Wheel and staying far from the screen, WIRELESSLY over Bluetooth! This software rocks!
It’s Usually Available for free download at the author’s site: http://www.niime.com/
I’ll Put in the next time, some direct download links and a summary of the best applications. So, don’t go too far!
