Must Have Apps for the Nokia 808 Pureview
Yes, I do requests sometimes. In my mail i found a question asking for the Must Have Apps for the Nokia 808 PureView.
First however, I must stress I could never have given the summary below without the two forum members that gave so much input in the PureViewClub Forum. So I have to thank Joi-C and ElPeter, who mentioned I guess just about ALL must have apps in this topic.
The list is so incredibly extensive, I wonder if someone will think of any more apps to add. So my grattitude goes to them, but if you have any other app you like and would like to share, please do so in the Forum.
UPDATE: the suggestions below are based on expierence with the Nokia N8 (amongst others, I guess). Not all apps will work on the Nokia 808 PureView - yet. I didn't realize that when I wrote this post. Hope it will prove to be helpful now or in the (near) future.
Joi-C was first suggesting all these apps:
Gravity - For Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, Youtube, Google Reader. (must have!)
Extra buttons - Easy access to Power Saving option and Open Applications
Spotify - premium account required and unfortunately no support for scrobbling to LastFM
Mobbler - Scrobbling tracks played with the music player to LastFM
Clock Sync - Sync the phone clock with an outside source once in a while
Nokia Sleeping Screen - nice lock screen
Nokia Internet Radio - listen to online internet radio
Nokia Maps - offline navigation
NetQin Mobile Security - Firewall, virusscanner, task manager, network manager, application manager all-in-one.
Kik messenger - to chat with my nieces and nephews (they each have an iPod touch)
GoogaSync - sync multiple google calendars (expensive, but works well!)
Icon Changer - Change apps home screen icon to selfmade icons
Pocketbooth - create nice retrostyle photobooth pictures (just a fun app)
Screensnap - to create snapshots of my homescreens
SoundHound - to recognize that song playing on the radio. (although I think Shazam is out-of-the-box functionality in Nokia Belle)
UpCode - barcode scanner
Youtube Downloader - download Youtube video's
Podcatcher - download podcasts
Nokia Big Screen: when connecting your phone to your television using the HDMI out option, this apps turns the phone into a remote control to scan through and select video's, photo's and music tracks.
Nokia Car Mode: simplified telephone menu for easy access to basic telephone functions in your car.
Swype: alternative keyboard using swype method for entering text.
Sports Tracker: http://www.sports-tracker.com
Than ElPeter added his list. Some of the apps he likes were already mentioned by Joi-C above, but a double mention stresses there importance I guess, so I didn't bother to look for duplicates (call me lazy).
Belle Extra buttons -> Of course the must-have app #1
ScreenSnap -> take screenshots
Toshl -> Personal finance manager
QuickOffice -> manage docs, xls, etc..

Forum member berryth thought of one more tip in the forumtopic and writes:
My use is more and more Nokia Play To. Make use of the DLNA on your TV or media player. AND most of all - you don't need any cable.
So I'd like to thank him as well - I guess it's not easy to think of something else after all the apps mentioned above but like I said, if you do have something to add, please do so in the Forum, thank you very much in advance.
And thanks again Joi-C and ElPeter, for your incredible input!
