So, yeah, I got interviewed by Surya from the Ovi Blog. The interview was posted today here Open-mouthed smile.

I’m still shocked in a good way, I’m so honored and probably this is only the start Winking smile. I have to dream big and put an aim in front of my eyes so I can work hard to achieve it.

Anyways, it was an amazing experience filled with fun, I loved it! I actually wrote the interview while I was revising for the exams and by the time I finished it, I was done with them. Love multitasking!

So, thank you so much for Surya and the Ovi team for giving me this chance and communicating with me like they knew me forever, may God bless you allRed heart. I wish you all the luck and I can’t wait to see what’s new Smile.

Read the Ovi Blog and follow them on Twitter too.

Best Regard.

Nokia Reader

Hello there!

Sorry for not blogging much, I’ve been so busy at school with exams as usual Confused smile. Also, I’ve been busy with the guest interview that Ovi Blog. did with me Open-mouthed smile, I’ve been so honored to be asked to do one. I’m still happy. You can read it next week on the Ovi Blog Red heart.

If you haven’t noticed, I also updated my blogs look and feel. I made this decision late at night after noticing that I haven’t updated it in so long, also, after seeing that the previous one had so much pink in it! Disappointed smile

Anyways, let’s get to the point! Nerd smile

So Nokia released a new application on the Beta labs website called Nokia Reader. What this app let’s you do, is it let’s you add your favorite RSS feed and it’ll fetch the feeds right into the app. It’s so simple, easy and very basic. It also has notifications and a widget for your phone, if it supports this option of course. They released it for s^1 lately, so I decided to give it a try as I usually do with beta applications from Nokia Beta Labs Smile.

My experience:

The installation was so smooth and it took only 2minutes or lessSmile.

After the installation is done, you lunch the app (named “Reader”) >>

After you sign in with your Nokia/Ovi account, the app will connect to the internet, then it’ll show you news from pre-set RSS feeds, which you later customize.

At the top, you can see three section; Reader, My feeds and Directory. Reader tab is the current one which is in the screenshot above, which shows you new articles from your selected or/and added RSS feeds Smile. The My Feeds tab shows you your subscribed feeds. From this tab, you can manually add feeds for sites not available in the directory. The Directory tab, shows you pre-set categories of feeds you might want to subscribe to. (See the next screenshots)


When you click on a category, feeds from that category show up, from there, you can click on a feed either to subscribe or unsubscribe. You can also see feeds you’re already subscribed to a particular feed by seeing that “Right” mark on the right.


Going back to the Reader tab, you can click on an article to expand it and read some of it. To read the hole article, you have to click on “Read More” which will take you outside the app to the article’s web page using you browser.


By clicking on Options at the bottom left, you can choose to change the theme or go to offline mode, which is nice Smile.


What I would love to see in upcoming updates to this app:

  • - Google Reader support! I saw at their Beta Labs page that some users already requested that and I agree with them! It would be nice to sync to Google Reader or even just import our feeds from there, we don’t have to re-write our favorite feeds URLs many times!! Especially if you have hundreds of feeds like me.
  • - I would love to see the full article opens within the app, native support, instead or opening the browser to read it. This might kill the ram of the phone if it’s like mine!

Final words:

I love this app! It’s simple, very basic and easy to use, which I adore Open-mouthed smile. It needs to be improved more, but hey, it’s still in Beta, that’s why they need our feedback. If you have a supported Nokia device, then give it a try, you won’t regret it!

Stay tuned for more reviews to come!
