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.

    If Nothing OS is nothing more that an overlay with Google still in the midst….then I ain’t interested.

    Apple was forced to add USB-C to a phone and the maccultists start talking about “revolution” and “paradigm shift” (as if USB phones had never come out before). It’s so ridiculous it’s reminiscent of comedians doing the “stepped on a water hose” stunt – that was at least somehow funny a hundred years ago.
    Reading this on a site that used to be a technical resource is especially ridiculous.
    How pathetic

    “An iPhone 15 with a USB-C port will mean more than you think”

    That Apple can finally stop hindering progress if spanked hard enough ?

    I’m thrilled to see Instagram taking steps to enhance the user experience with features like Live Activities. This update is a game-changer, especially for those who frequently upload content on the platform.

    The ability to track upload progress in the background is a simple yet incredibly useful addition. It not only keeps users informed about the status of their uploads but also allows for a more seamless experience on the platform. No more constantly checking if your post has successfully uploaded or worrying about interrupted uploads due to a weak signal.

    As an active Instagram user, this feature is a relief. It showcases Instagram’s commitment to improving user satisfaction and addressing common pain points. It’s all about making the platform more user-friendly, and this feature certainly accomplishes that.

    I can’t wait to try out Live Activities and enjoy a stress-free posting experience. Kudos to Instagram for continually innovating and making our social media lives easier!

    Keep up the great work, Instagram, and thanks to ghacks for keeping us in the loop with the latest tech updates!

    I am additionally add one more think if you want to watch instagram stories anonymously to visit site
