A useful set of Nokia N97 homescreen widgets

Kudos to Dave Cozens for coding up a useful set of news-focussed widgets for the Nokia N97. There's 'Nokia and Symbian news', 'UK traffic news' (couple of screenshots below), 'World news' and (ahem) 'Football news'. There's Twitter integration, automatic update checking and you can grab them here, at Nokia Users' forum.

Read on in the full article.

Question

N97
widgets are nice
form factor excellent
I don't want to go into the discussion of it's hardware

is n97 run faster than n95?

And one more thing
when in landscape mode the right hand menu bar is soooooooooo wideeeeeeeeee
why????? Why not make the text vertical?????????? Very bad design in this case

Thumbs down

These widgets are badly optimized and to be brutally honest, they suck.

Why did you bother dave?

Some people, like Dave, do bother.

Others just moan and criticise.


Good work Dave, lucky for the rest of us some people like you make the effort, time and effort for no reward.

Thanks unregistered, for your kind words and brave anonymity....

They're a work in progress. If you don't like em, don't use em.
