Five free apps that rock for your mobile phone

I got a new Nokia N73 with a USB cable recently and have been searching for games and applications that I can download without charge to install on my new mobile phone. I have never put much thought into apps and games before before mainly because of my laziness and an old phone that had no data cable.

The Internet has a lot of fake sites for mobile phones that promise free downloads but charge the user in the end anyway. It took a while to find excellent sites that live up to their promise. After finding several sites that offered free downloads for mobile phones I had to download applications and test them on my phone.

The major problem with applications for mobile phones is that they are most of the time not compatible with all mobile phones. You sometimes have a five or six versions of the same application and you have to download the correct one for your mobile phone.

Not everyone may agree with the selection that I made and I would love to hear about applications that you use.

Amaze - Free GPS Navigation

Flurry - Mobile Email and RSS

MobiChat - Use AIM, MSN and Yahoo on your phone

MobyExplorer - File Manager, FTP & FTPS client

Secret Codes - A mobile password safe (alternative is Mililock)

Update: as you can see, some of the applications are no longer available. I suggest you visit the Get Jar website if you are still having a phone with Nokia's Symbian OS or a comparable operating system as it offers a wide range of applications for it.

Modern phones come with app stores that are accessible from the phone directly in form of an application or web store, and software like Apple's iTunes software that can be used to browse and install apps on the phone.

    To bad Amaze – Free GPS Navigation isn’t compatible for Palm (Treo 650). Treo allows Java too but I bet it wasn’t programmed to work with the little GPS functions that is emended in the phone’s OS.

    It is worth to mention the app that makes mobile user free and independent of app stores’ offers. Normally app stores do not serve to the interests of users. They need to sell to earn money. So it is really hrad to find what you need beside Angry Birds and other highly promoted apps. But installing AppCurl on a smartphone or a tablet you get a powerful tool for discovering and searching for apps that match you unique needs. AppCurl app supports all main app stores both iOS and Android and it make the app universal. Check it at http://appcurl.com
