iPhone on Nokia Symbian

Posted October 26, 2008 by Chaos Inc. in Mobile Applications

After the official launch on Apple’s most popular product the Apple iPhone last year on the 9th of January 2007 just after the new Mac OS, a whole new market for this particular smartphone was born. That market have grown significantly over the last year and is still growing by the minute with the second version of the smartphone, iPhone 3G. Apple always focus on performance and features more than anything else and the best examples can be the iPod, the MacBook and of course the iPhone. Where is Nokia amidst all this? Why am I all of a sudden going from a Nokiaholic to an Apple geek?

Because today what I am about to publish has something to do with both of the iPhone and Nokia. After you read this post, download and install this mobile application on your Nokia symbian phones, you will not only feel that iPhone actually have a nice interface but if Nokia adopted a similar pattern with its symbian OS platform, it would have quite fantastic to say the very least. Don’t get me wrong, I will pick a Nokia N-Series or E-Series S60 smartphone any day of the week over an iPhone, but I do admit that the regular menu of iPhone is quite beautiful than the default symbian GUI, plus I love the Apple Mac!! Overall in terms of compatibility, user friendliness and the flexibility of the symbian operating system on any smartphones, Symbian wins hands down over iPhone.

The main appeal of the iPhone (beside the music) is its touch screen sensitivity and the ability of it to serve external interfaces as applications. There are WordPress (the platform I am using for this blog, I love wordpress btw on a totally different note) plugins dedicated for the iPhone mainly because in the states most people are using iPhone over the Symbian. Sad really because Nokia phones are still the number one deal maker and breaker in the industry and WordPress should have had something for focused to the rest of the world users who actually uses something else and certainly not iPhone. Anyway, back to the topic and what I am about to publish today will convert your default Nokia symbian menu and settings (not the core settings) to that of the Apple iPhone, thus giving you the looks of the iPhone while letting you use the much better Symbian OS. It is called Symbian Plus and it will “flip and swooop” your default Nokia interface!

When you install this application and restart your smartphone, you will see that the entire screen has changed quite significantly. When you enter the menu you will be presented with the fabulous little iPhone navigation bar with the animated zooming icon menu through which you can access various applications and commands directly. The animation menu depends entirely on your current symbian os edition of course. You also get the 3D sliding effect that you can see in the iPhone 3G version, it is not perfect but it is quite satisfactory considering that this is the very first version of this creative mobile application. There is another similar application in the mobile software and applications market, which I already published in the past, called iPhone style Launcher or iLauncher for Symbian S60 cell phones and handhelds. But Symbian plus is surely more powerful and intuitive than that one.


Symbian Plus also has one nifty thing which I mentioned earlier, the navigation dock bar that actually was Apple’s Mac thing and later ported to the iPhone. You can opt to have a total of seven different applications or functions there each dedicated to something different. By default Symbian Plus assigns the first icon to be settings, the second to be the mobile gaming dedicated pad. The third is assigned for going back to phone and the rest are the internet browser, music, help and refresh buttons respectively. This mobile application also lets you experience the Mobile 2.0 interface with the help of its pop up menu screens. It is really hard to describe it, but once you install it you will know what I meant lol.

Anyway, this symbian mobile application is compatible with a wide variety of Symbian 3rd edition phones including N71, N75, N73, N76, N77, N78, N79, N81, N82, N85, N91, N92, N93, N95, N95 8gb, N96, E50, E51, E65, E71, E66, 5320, 5700, 5800, 6210, 6120, 6121, 6122, 6290, 6500, 8600 Luna and Arte. All major GSM networks are supported like the Orange Mobile UK, 3G Wireless, Sprint, Nextel, AT&T Wireless, T-Mobile, Cingular, Verizon Wireless, Vodafone, Optimus, Telenor, TeliaSonera, Telstra etc.

    1 – Add an App or Game to your folders
    2 – Delete an App or Game from your folders
    3 – Move an App or Game icon
    4 – Exit from the menu (i guess)
    5 – Duplicate an App or Game icon
    6 – Change the background
    7 – Change the view to Icon or List view

  71. @josh909 – Thanks a lot for the feedback bro!

    @Nayrb95 – And thanks a lot to you as well for helping out good man!! Really appreciate it.

    I myself hope that a stock english version will be out sooner than later. Let’s see what the tide brings us.

  72. Originally Posted By nayrb95Well.. I’m hoping that a better version of this is on the make. And please.. have it in English too next time.. =)

    yeah, i’ve played about with it but until a more polished and customisable version is released, i’m leaving it alone – great concept but at the end of the day it looks kind of like a menu you would find on a fake iPhone. lots of potential though.

  73. G-UNIT

    need in english :'( plzzz :((((((

  74. nayrb95

    Customize the icons? nope, sorry.. Though i’ve noticed that the icons, appear to be the same as what your currently applied theme shows. Well except for the java ones.. it gives you that particular orange icon, which i consider ugly.

    Well.. I’m hoping that a better version of this is on the make. And please.. have it in English too next time.. =)

  75. Bader40

    Another application that gives an certificate error!! any ideas on this one?

  76. 1: Mark – you need to hack your phone. Google it and you’ll see what i mean.

    2: Nayrb9 – thanks for the pointers. Do you know how to customise the icons? I’m guessing it has something to do with the MBM tool included in the download?

    Originally Posted By Nayrb95Ei josh909.. had this app for weeks now.. and i’d say the interface looks really cool. about the menu.. its not english.. and you can access it by doin a long press on the center key of the navi key. thru this u can organize the applications in the menu.
    4=i haven’t figure it out yet.. sorry
    6=theme (background)
    7=change menu view

  77. mark

    i install the application but when im in the midle of instalition theres an error coming up and saying up online cert. Error you must cont. The supplier how can i mange this problem.

  79. thanks for the post – i downloaded and installed though it did tell me it wasn’t compatible with my phone (N95)? anyway, i continued the installation and everything seems ok.

    quick question: in your screenshots above, the 3rd down on the left shows a menu (Chinese) that i’m assuming is for settings… how do i access this? maybe i’m missing something obvious? will this also allow me to customise the wallpaper/icons etc? i’m getting a mac-esque blue wallpaper at the moment…
