Apps

Applications come from the various repositories that are available to the N900.

I currrently have over 260 applications loaded on my Nokia N900, which takes a good couple of hours to install if I restore after a flash of the device. Listed below are actual applications that I have installed, but I also have a lot of transparent applications behind the scenes that enhance the N900 a thousand fold, which I will try and list below:

  • Social networking / communication / file sharing:

    • Vagalume Last.FM and Libre.FM player. NB: Last.FM does not work because of licencing issues, but there is a work around and it works perfectly. Follow the instructions over at NokiaAddict.com and you will be listening to Last.FM in no time at all.
    • BlueMaemo is a remote controller application for Maemo-powered devices. With BlueMaemo you can turn your Maemo-powered device in a mixed Bluetooth keyboard-and-mouse device through the HID Bluetooth profile. I have successfully tested it by controlling my iMac mouse and keyboard, HP Pavillion DV9000, PS3 and the using my Nokia N900 as my PS3 controller. A brilliant application. I am using Windows 7, and initially it would not work after the N900 paired with Windows 7,because  it would ERROR with Bluetooth Peripheral Device.  The reason for this is because Windows 7 does not automatically install Windows Mobile Device Center, you need to visit Microsoft and download the driver or file for whatever version you have installed (32bit or 64bit).  I found the solution on the Windows 7 Forum. I followed their instructions and it worked perfectly. (thanks guys).
