Beta: Screensaver

It had to come. We knew it had to come. The default was so boring that one just had to set the timeout to the maximum and curse Nokia for not providing a 'None' option. So it had to come. What had to come? A screensaver application of course!

PsiLOC+ has released a beta version of Screensaver. It simply gives the user more choice in regard to what the phone should do if not touched for anything up to half an hour (though I doubt that there are many new 7650 owners who can put it down for that long).

By default, it displays some text or the date and time. Now, however, you can have a bouncy round thing, a bouncy clock or a slide show. Excellent!

Use the link above to download the beta.

If PsiLOC+ are reading this, is there any chance of the old starfield as well? Please though, no flying Windows! The last thing we want is for our Smartphones to think they're Microsoft products and suddenly crash for no reason!

Also, how about one of these for the 9210?

Thanks to 'Global Moderator' for the Heads Up.

...and after these screensavers you can be sure that you have to recharge the battery much more often. The processor is running and the whole screen is on all the time.

Ah Yes

But....

the Nokia default screensaver still starts after 30mins and screws this thing up. Which is a shame, cos the analogue clock looks great!

The Screensaver app has been updated with new screensaver options, including support for animated GIFs!

Also added is support to show how many (if any) calls have been missed as well as signal strength and battery status. The developers really have been listening to us haven't they!!!!

i'm really interested in purchasing the screen saver. I have downloaded the trial version and it keeps on crashing on my 7650 (v.3.12) do any of you out there still have the beta version? appreciate if you can email to me at:

vtr@edsamail.com.ph

thanks! but if ever they can fix the crashing problem, I really want to purchase it.
