Nokia Tests Out Bubbles Beta
      05/27/11 02:29 PM

Nokia today released a beta version of its Bubbles app for Symbian, a fun UI that gives you a quick access to your apps on a smartphone. Here is more info and a demo video of Nokia Bubbles:

Bubbles appears when you press the "Apps" key while your device is in sleep mode (instead of the black screen with clock and unlock button). Simply grab a bubble and drag it to one of the available drop points to initiate the corresponding action.

Bubbles can also be used to pass the time by "throwing" bubbles and watching them bounce back and forth around the screen.

Currently there are bubbles available for the following actions:

Unlock the phone
View new messages
View/Respond to missed calls
Control the music player
Control the FM radio
Change profile (profile timing also supported)
Call/Message your three best friends
Activate the backlight to use as a flashlight
Change the background of the Bubbles screen
NEW Set which bubbles are active
Display when battery needs charging
Display statistics about bubble speed and distance (just for fun)

Nokia Bubbles has been verified on latest S^3 versions with phone models N8-00 and E7-00 and is known to work with Qt version 4.7.3. Incompatibilities with Ovi Store have been fixed.
