Light Sabre: go iPhone-hunting on your N95!

I'm still filing this under 'Nokia was mad not to have released the inclinometer plug-in months ago', but.... Aha, someone's produced an app that finally uses the N95's built-in accelerometer to do something really, really useful, day to day. Yep, it's your very own light sabre. Run the app, press the d-pad button and challenge a new iPhone owner to a duel (via Ricky Cadden).

Read on in the full article.

Yes, the same happens to me. I get the light sabre icon appears but when clicking on it it just refreshes the menu screen and nothing...

What does it do exactly?

You'll need to install the Acceletometer API first:

Okay, found the problem. You *have* to install on phone memory.

Talking

<SPLORF!> I hurt from laughing. Even the cat's laughing in our house. I started laughing even harder when I realised that Symbian developers have been working around the clock to find something really useful to do with that API and came up with... a light sabre. Utterly brilliant.

Lightbulb Light Sabre app

Read Steve's instructions carefully padewan - you are forgetting to press the d-pad button to activate your light sabre! Be sure to stand well back and may the force be with you...

I've installed the first bit bit when I install the Lightsaber application I get "Certificate error, contact the application supplier"

Where am I going wrong?

Hmm you might need to change your security settings in App Manager from Signed Only to All.
