19 de May de 2010 Leave a comment

Facebook has launched a new version of its social network that will be available with no data fees on select carriers. The stripped-down site,, “includes all of the key features of Facebook but is optimized for speed,” according to a blog post from Sid Murlidhar, Program Manager for Facebook’s Mobile edition. The new site will focus on all the textual aspects of Facebook, letting users send and receive messages, wall posts and comments. The site won’t offer pictures directly, but will offer links to hosted images, and data charges will apply if a user opens an image. The new site will launch with more than 50 mobile operators around teh world, covering some markets on every inhabited continent except North America. Though Facebook did announce plans for Australia, France, Indonesia and other markets in the near future, the social network did not announce any plans for U.S. carrier support.

I know some people who don’t have data plans that are really going to love this one. I still prefer either the full site or an app. But hey, that’s just me! ๐Ÿ™‚

Socially 1.40 Released for Symbian โ€“ Now Supports Geotweets

18 de May de 2010 Leave a comment

It’s been a while since I last looked up the Application, ‘Socially‘ the twitter application from Antarix for your Nokia device. Back a few months when I first checked it out, it was still in its infancy, and lacked quite a lot of features that another well known twitter app has, Gravity.


A few months on, and ‘Socially’ has transformed into quite a comprehensive twitter client now, with more features, and with the latest 1.40 release, it introduces GeoTweets, and integrates with Ovi Maps instead of Google Maps.

‘Socially’ is not just all about twitter either, with support for facebook, and LinkedIn too.

Here is a snippet from their support page..

antarixWe just released a new version of Socially app v1.40 that supports Geotweets

Now when you post on Twitter, you can add your location to your tweets. And while reading others’ tweets, see their location on the map (if they have added location while tweeting). 

Not just that, you can also search tweets from nearby location by adding your location while searching on Twitter! 

Socially is a must-have client for your Nokia handset, allowing full access to Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn from one place. With Socially, you can see all your Social Contacts in your Nokia phone address book; Sync photos of phone contacts with their profile photos from Facebook; see Birthdays of Facebook friends (NEW); receive automatic Social Alerts of activities happening on your social networks & more! A social network client like no other for your Nokia phone.

You can pickup ‘Socially’ for free in the Ovi Store, so why not head over there today, and give it a try. Of course, the developers of ‘Socially’ really look forward to users feedback, good or bad, as they are always looking to improve the application based on users feedback.  You can leave your feedback for the developers here.

This app is looking very good for me mainly because of the Facebook integration (obviously the twitter client also helps). I’ll see what this can give me ๐Ÿ˜‰ . Looks VERY good as of now ๐Ÿ˜€

Nokia Messaging for Social Networks updated

9 de February de 2010 Leave a comment

It looks like Nokia Messaging (@nokiamessaging) updated its Social Networks service. The update seems to be exclusive for S60 5th Edition devices, but it’s supposed to come to some of the most popular Eseries devices (E71 and E72) in March.

I don’t have a S60v5 device to test this, but Symbian Guru is reporting this to be a hell of an update offering the best Facebook experience on a Symbian device as a LOT more functions to Twitter. But, better than reading about it, why don’t you get it and tell us what you think? Just visit the Nokia Beta Labs to download this update and leave a coment with your thought on it ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is a YouTube video uploaded by Symbian Guru showing off the new Nokia Messaging update! Enjoy ๐Ÿ˜‰
