Nokia Bubbles resurfaces

Published by at

Nokia Bubbles, the interactive screen saver, has been re-released at Nokia Beta Labs. This should be of interest to anyone who had problems or missed it the first time around. Prior versions of Nokia Bubbles required testers to install a beta version of the Qt libraries. That caused so many problems for testers that Nokia had to issue a .SIS file to downgrade their Qt files. Now however, Nokia Bubbles works with the current Qt libraries and is installed with Nokia Smart Installer, thus avoiding the earlier issues. Read on for more details and screenshots.

According to their blog post, the new features of this beta version are:

  • Smart installer support with official Qt version.
  • Settings dialog to activate/deactivate bubbles.
  • Bubble view can be deactivated with menu/power key press to return screensaver immediately.
  • Reduced timeout to bring secondary drop points visible.

Below are the screen shots shown on the Beta Labs blog post, especially note the new settings dialog.
