Some More Useful Apps
Apart from the Nokia N900 apps we have already covered here are some more useful applications that can also be found for the N900. In the ensuing lines you will find out what these applications do.
Ma Story: Ma Story is a blogging app which allows users to write articles wherever they are and post them from anywhere. It works very well and is easy to use. It allows the blogger to have a full overview of writings, publications and drafts, media uploads and comments and categories and tags.
Evernote: Evernote is not really a native application on the phone (it just opens in the browser). With the instant messaging plug-in, it is possible to post thoughts, ideas, photos, etc. to an Evernote account and then edit the notes later on a desktop PC or Mac as long as the Evernote software is installed.
EasyPark: This application helps you find your car. It can be installed by going to the application manager of the phone. EasyPark will also install the Geolocation plug-in for the N900 browser, which is necessary to determine current location. After installation it is necessary to configure the GPS preferably with network positioning.
When the car is parked “park" is tapped and the app remembers the location by showing a “P" on the map. When returning to the vehicle, if “route" is tapped the app will guide you to your vehicle. The app also shows your current parking time and the distance to your car. It will also give an audio alert if time is running out.
Weatherbug App: When you open this app it asks for your location. You can enter more than one location and toggle through them on the main panel. There are four panels on the right that display the following information: maps, forecasts, video and even a photo outside at the nearest weather station. The app includes current weather conditions for a location as well as radar information on precipitation that is displayed on a hybrid (road/aerial map). It is available for download free of charge at the Ovi Store.
MGutenberg Application: This application allows the user to read, search and download e-books directly from the Gutenberg project which produces free electronic books of sources whose copyright has expired.
