5 Great Apps for Nokia S60 phones

Ok so the iPhone is king of smartphones. Lets not beat around the bush…1000’s of apps and an image of coolness that shouldn’t really even be associated with a phone.

But there are others! Google’s Android phones and of course Nokia’s S60. So what applications are there for the Nokia S60 platform? Well below are 5 apps that are definately worth a mention:

Nokia Sports Tracker (beta)

Nokia Sports Tracker is a GPS-based activity tracker that runs on compatible Nokia mobile devices. Information such as speed, distance, and time are automatically stored in your training diary. It recently won the award of ‘Best Mobile Internet Service’ at the Global Mobile Awards

This is great for all sports fans as it allows you to time yourself doing laps and record your route. If you want to run 10k then it’ll tell you when you’ve reached 5k and you can turn around and run back.

The only downside is that this is not available on the Nokia 5800 yet so here’s hoping…
