Free Apps and Games for your Symbian Phone - gHacks Tech News

Free Apps and Games for your Symbian Phone

Nokia doesn’t have one wizz-bang distribution store like Apple has with iTunes, and locating applications for the Symbian OS is actually quite a pain. Apparently Symbian is a total bitch to develop for so there isn’t a huge amount of apps like you can get for the iPhone.

Update: Symbian is not really in development anymore and many of the web links we published back in 2008 are not available anymore. We removed those that don't work anymore and kept those that still work online. Note that these will go away sooner or later as well. End

There are some resources however, so I’ve put together this list of the best sites to find free (and commercial) applications and more:


Nokia’s portal for free apps, games, audio and images. Accessible from your phone and computer. It has a pretty rubbish selection of applications, but if you’re looking for some semi-decent free games then Mosh has quite a few.

Symbian Freak

Symbian Freak provides news and downloads for Symbian phones. It actually has one of the best selections of freeware, some of the applications are even useful! If I had to recommend one resource is would be this.

Symbian Freeware

If you filter through all the crap you might find some decent downloads in here.

Nokia Beta Labs

Actually fair bit going on in here; a number of apps which are coming out of development are worth taking a look at.

Nokia Download!
Download! is another Nokia Portal for free and paid applications. There are few apps here, not a huge amount, hopefully Nokia has some plans to improve this aspect of their products.

My Symbian

Forums and download directory, fair bit here if you browse through.

Dot Sis

Hang out on these forums and you’re likely to find a whole lot of games and apps. If you can be bothered registering =P


Carbide is software to create user interfaces for your Symbian device. Easy to use, great for making custom themes.
