With the brilliant Symbian OS, Nokia serves a varied range of apps, Symbian S60 is one of the most popular software platforms for the phone. The S60 is more of an OS for phone than a smartphone. Various apps are available to make your experience with the S60 phones worthwhile. Nokia provided an in-built app shop called Download! service to download apps and games for most of Nokia S60 phones. With time like everything moves on, and Download is now the popular application store the Ovi Store.
So where do we find good and compatible apps for s60 phones for free? There are multiple solutions to this. The Nokia Ovi Store is usually first choice of people to look for free Nokia apps. Whatever games or apps you are looking for can be found at this place. It is one of the best options to look for free apps, games and themes. Also, for phones without Wi-Fi or 3G connections the Ovi Store allows you to download apps which are free only.
There are more than 2000 free S60 apps, games and themes which can be downloaded for free for your phone which include many utility and GPS system software, e-mail and social networking client apps and more. All these can be downloaded from various websites.
I will help you search few places where you would find good applications. One of the most known places is Getjar. This is the perfect place to find all the Symbian apps, themes, data and games for free. There are various blogs which share apps and related information too. Few of them are enlisted below.
The two other popular websites include the following:
Symbian-freeware: This shares almost 2000 Symbian applications, themes and games.
Last but not the least and the most counted website is the Nokia Ovi Store which supports and purveys all genuine and tamper free data and applications. The link for the same is Ovi Store.
Once you are done downloading the application, your job is nearly half done. All you have to do now is to connect your phone to the PC, and transfer the .jar file usually that you have downloaded to either the external or internal memory of your device. Disconnect your phone and go to the location on the phone where you copied the app on phone and just click on the options and install. The application if compatible with your device will now be installed and ready to run.
Though I definitely won’t suggest you to go for the free applications or download paid applications from different clients for free, because I will always prefer people to support developers by buying applications which you find handy and beneficial. Also this data which you fetch is completely genuine and trustworthy and wont crop up any issues with usability or accessibility. But honestly it is always better to keep looking for open source stuff rather than paid, binding material, especially when they serve more or less the same purpose.
This might help you serve your needs. Try them and do let us know how do you find them. Your comments are always welcome.
