Handy Profiles v1.00

Do you remember Handy Profiles which I talked about last week, well, it's now officially released, but curiously, i didn't find anything in their site...

Anyway, it's a powerful replacement for the built-in Profiles application. Handy Profiles allows you automatically switching profiles according to Calendar events, location or time schedule.

Author's Description

Your phone rang during a meeting?
Forgot to turn on the sound and missed an important call?
Profile management takes too much time?

Handy Profile will solve these problems for you. This new utility for Nokia S60 smartphones will change your understanding of phone profiles. Handy Profiles automatically switches profiles according to the rules you set.

Use Pager profile at your office? Configure Handy Profiles and it will automatically activate Pager profile while you are at your office (using GSM cells).

Use Meeting profile during business meetings? Add your meetings to phone’s Calendar application and Handy Profiles will automatically activate Meeting profile for the meeting times.

Do not want to be bothered by phone calls at night? Configure Handy Profiles and it will activate Silent profile, when you are asleep.

Going out to the cinema or theatre? Use timed profile activation for a movie time and Handy Profiles will activate General profile, when the movie ends.

Handy Profiles extends possibilities of your smartphone profiles, using 3 types of rules:
- Location rule – a profile is activated, when you are at a specific location (e.g. office, gym, or home).
- Time interval rule – a profile is activated for the time you set (e.g. since midnight till 7 o’clock).
- Calendar entry rule – a profile is activated, when a Calendar event with specified keyword (e.g. meeting) takes place.

You can set one or several rules for each profile.

Handy Profiles allows you to completely configure smartphone profiles, saving you a lot of time. Set your Handy Profiles once and one of your daily routines will be solved.

Download it! : An Alternative to Outlook?

Steve Litchfield has posted a nice article about Mobical as a Web-based PIM, totally online and totally free. So, for example, you can sync while mobile, even picking up new entries or revisions from your assistant or boss and backing up changes you have made. Syncs are slow at first, but then the system just transfers over changed data and it's very quick, only a few seconds.

So you're not tied to your PC. And you're not tied to Microsoft. And you'll never ever again have to worry about reinstalling Outlook after a PC system crash and hoping that your activation key still works....

Tracker v1.02 : The Most Advanced and The Must Have Solution on the Market?

Sunday, July 29, 2007

This is the new baby from smartphoneware called Tracker, Tracker is a real and fully customizable desktop application designed to help a user to optimize, simplify and organize most common everyday actions. Hundreds of unique functions and possibilities transform your device from a simple organizer to a powerful and great looking handheld computer.

Tracker highlights
- Fully customizable look;
- Unique and intuitive navigation;
- Real desktop;
- Ability to put on desktop: notes, applications, contacts, speed dials, sms/mms, emails, documents, links to webpages, different actions, etc;
- Ability to assign hotkeys for everything;
- Built-in extended task manager and task switcher;
- Unique "Recent" view that tracks all imprortant events and shows them in one view. - Last used applications, recent calls and messages, calendar and todo events - all on one screen;
- Fast separate application launcher and "Communicator" style "New call" function;
- Autostart function;
- And a lot more unique and powerful functions to explore!
- Tracker desktop look in some different modes with some different resolutions..

The best of the best is that It can be integrated into system and fully substitute the built-in "Menu" application and built-in Task manager highly improving their functionality. Tracker consists of 3 main views: Desktop, TaskMan and Recent. You can switch between them using Left/Right joystick buttons.


In this mode, you can place any number of sticky notes, shortcuts to applications, contacts, documents, speed dials, speed SMS, webpages, and even different actions on your desktop. You can organise all these items to any number of folders, subfolders and put them on different pages.

By using a unique intuitive navigation and "Pages pane" built into desktop you can switch between pages and folders very fast and access any item by some key presses. If it's not enough you can assign to any item, folder or even page a hotkey to access it with one key press only even if Tracker is in background.

Such approach will allow you organize your work with the device in the best way. For example you can create Business and Personal pages then place on Business page some speed dials to the most used work contacts, shortcuts to recently used documents or webpages and so on. If there are too many items you can organise them between folders and subfolders.

How to get started

Please note, at first start Tracker creates automatically 3 empty pages. It does not copy your current "Menu" structure as on Tracker desktop you can organise better all your applications. Now you can create any number of folders and place any applications on your desktop using "Options \ New" commands.

Hint: You can use "Options \ New \ Applications.." command to place several applications at the same time to the currently selected folder.

Manage pages

You can create your own desktop pages or edit/delete the existing ones using "Manage pages" command from menu. Hint: to switch fast between pages use shift + ok (center joystick button) key combination. This can be useful if you want to hide "Pages pane" from your desktop.


Tracker desktop supports device skins and its own looks can be fully customized to fit all users needs.

By using "Appearance" menu you can customize desktop look.
- Columns: you set the number of columns you want the desktop grid to have. The more columns you set the smaller the icon will be. You can set "Auto" (on default) so Tracker will determine the optimal number of columns automatically depending on your device resolution, zoom factor, and item layout.
- Item layout: you set the item appearance on desktop: Icon top, Icon left, Icon only

--> When the Icon only mode is selected you can see only icons on desktop and on the bottom of desktop screen you can see the selected item description. Using Icon only mode and setting large amount of columns allows you to see over one hundred items on your desktop at the same time.
- Zoom: allows you to select zoom factor of your desktop. The smaller the zoom is the smaller items will be and more information will fit the screen.
- Pages pane: allows you to show or hide "Pages pane" from your desktop.


Tracker desktop has unique and configurable navigation. You can press left/right/up/down keys to switch between items on the desktop.
- When an item in the right column on desktop grid is selected and you press right key then Pages pane is selected
- When "Pages pane" is selected and you press right key then you open TaskMan view
- When an item in the left column is selected and you press left button then "Recent" view will be opened
- You can press shift+left/right to switch instantly between desktop grid, pages pane, TaskMan and "Recent" views ignoring current position in grid.

- Using Settings command you can assign hotkeys to Desktop, TaskMan, and "Recent" views to open them instantly in one key press.
- You can assign hotkey to any folder/subfolder or page to open it in one key press. E.g. If you're going to dial someone just press the hotkey to open the folder that contains your speed dials and select the one you need.
- In desktop settings you can set up "Tab key". When you press this key Desktop switches between desktop grid and pages pane. This can be really useful if you display large amount of columns in grid.
- You can block switching from left or right columns in grid to "Pages pane" or other view using "View navigation" option in settings. If this option is set to "Shift+left/right only" then smart navigation will be blocked and when you press the cursor keys selection will always stay inside the grid. To switch to pages pane in this mode you can press shift+right or the defined "Tab key"


You can set up hotkeys to any item on your desktop you want. To do so use "Hotkey" field when you edit desktop item.
Setting hotkeys is quite useful if you have some keyboard based device, in this case you have lots of key combinations to play with. But if your device is not keyboard based you still can use hotkeys to access some important actions instantly.
Note: 'Shift' button on most Series 60 devices is graphically marked as 'Pen' on device keyboard.


You can arrange items on screen using commands from Appearance\Sort\ menu. You can set "sort by name" and all your items on screen will be arranged by name automatically. You can set up "Manual" sort. In this case you can place any item on desktop in any order you want. To arrange items in "Manual" mode you can use Move up/down commands from Appearance\Sort\ menu or use shift+up/down hotkeys.

Task manager

This view shows the information about running applications. You can see what applications are running currently, switch to the needed application, get information about any running application, close some application or all applications at once. You may also see the amount of memory and disk space available on the right of the screen.

This view substitutes the built-in task manager (if enabled in options) and task selecting navigation here is the same as in the built-in one. You can select an application by using joystick or just pressing Menu key several times to select the needed application and then long press Menu key to switch to the application.

You can also select in Settings not to substitute the built-in task manager but to define your custom taskman activation hotkey, in this case both Tracker's TaskMan and the system task manager will work without conflicts at the same time (See Settings section in this documentaion for more information).

Hint: When this view is shown from background it automatically highlights the previously focused application so you can cycle between 2 last applications in a fast way.

Task Switcher

Tracker's Task Switcher is an alternative way to cycle applications (requires much less key presses to switch between applications). TaskSwitcher has the same look and feel as "Alt-Tab on Windows". You can configure your own TaskSwitcher hotkey in 'Settings'. Default hotkey for it is "Shift+Menu".

For example you can set up Shift+Menu button for this action. Then press Shift+Menu any time you work with your device, keep Shift button pressed and hit Menu as many times as needed to select some application. Release Shift button to switch to the selected application instantly. Absolutely the same as Alt-Tab works on Windows.

Hint: While you keep Shift pressed as in our example you can also use cursor keys to select the needed application and release Shift button to switch to the selected application.

One hand mode:

You can define any hotkey to use with TaskSwitcher. A hotkey consisting of Modifier (Shift,Fn,Ctrl) and other button could not be handy in certain situations, e.g. to use with one hand. So you can define TaskSwitcher key without any modifiers, e.g. to Dictaphone, Multimedia, Camera, etc key. If so TaskSwitcher will behave like the built-in one but with improved functionality.

For example you can set up Dictaphone key to be used as TaskSwitcher. Then press Dictaphone key any time you work with your device and TaskSwitcher will appear. Hit Dictaphone key as many times as needed to select some application. Or use cursor keys to do it. Now long press Dictaphone key (for 1 sec) in order to switch to the selected application (also you can press Ok or Enter buttons to do it as well). So you can hit Dictaphone button several times only (and no other key) to switch to any needed application fast and with one hand only.

Recent view

Recent view summarizes all important information and events in one view and allows you to perform different actions on these events. This view is in ideal harmony with Tracker's desktop and TaskMan making Tracker solid solution to control and get the most from your device.

Recent view shows recent incoming/outgoing calls, missed calls, received messages, last used applications, amount of unread messages, calendar events and todo.

When you select some phone event you can dial the number or send sms/mms instantly, when you select message, you can view it and reply, when you select calendar events you see them, etc

All these events are sorted by event date. In application settings you can set up the number of items for each type to be visible on screen. For example you can set up to display only 1 last incoming phone call, 2 last outgoing phone calls, 5 last used applications, etc

Note: if some application is started you can find it in TaskMan, it won't be displayed in "Recent" view until closed.

Please note: information about recent applications start/close is tracked only when our application is started.


By using application settings you can override the default application behavior and customise it to fit your needs.

* Autostart - if enabled Tracker will be automatically started in background when system starts
- Desk view hotkey - allows you to define hotkey to switch to Desk view in one key press
- View navigation - you can block switching from left or right columns in grid to "Pages pane" or other view using "View navigation" option in settings. If this option is set to "Shift+left/right only" then smart navigation will be blocked and when you press the cursor keys selection will always stay inside grid. To switch to the pages pane in this mode you can press shift+right or defined "Tab key"
- Tab emulation key - allows to define "Tab" key. When you press this key Desktop switches between desktop grid and pages pane, this can be really useful if you selected to display large amount of columns in grid.

- TaskMan activation - If it is set to "Instead of built-in one" then Tracker will replace the built-in task manager when you long press Menu key. If it's set to 'Custom key' then both Tracker's taskman and system taskman can work at the same time.
- Activation hotkey - Visible only when Taskman activation is set to 'Custom key'. It allows you to define a hotkey to pop up Tracker's tasklist from background.
- Menu cycle list - Visible only when Taskman activation is set to 'Instead of built-in one'. It allows you to define a list of applications cycled when you press Menu key.
- Switcher hotkey - Allows you to define a hotkey to use with TaskSwitcher.
- Show hidden apps - If enabled then hidden application will be displayed in TaskList
- Task list exceptions - Allows to define a list of applications that should be hidden in tasklist. It can be very comfortable to hide some applications running in background all the time and you switch to them very seldom. This option also applies to TaskSwitcher applications list (see TaskSwitcher section in this documentation for more information).
- "Close all" exceptions - As 'Close all' command in TaskList view closes all non system applications you can set up here an additional list of applications that should not be closed with 'Close all' command.

- Recent view hotkey - Allows you to define hotkey to switch to Recent view in one key press
- Keep history for - Define how many days you want to keep your events. Older events will be pushed out from the list
- Max missed calls - Define maximun number of missed calls shown in the list
- Max incoming calls - Define maximun number of incoming calls shown in the list
- Max outgoing calls - Define maximun number of outgoing calls shown in the list
- Max unread messages - Define maximun number of unread messages shown in the list
- Max recent applications - Define maximun number of recent applications in the list

Known issues
On pre FP1 devices the system can sometimes close Tracker when it runs in background (because of memory paging). We were forced to behave like this to make our application SymbianSigned. When Symbian will accept our waiver about this issue we will fix this situation as soon as possible. On FP1+ devices (Nokia N95, E90, etc) our application "resists" these close events.

On Nokia E61, E61i blue keys (keys with numbers) can be used as hotkeys only when Tracker is in foreground. These keys can't be handled by Tracker when its in background because of key code translation issue

Handy Profiles : Best profile switcher on the market?

Sunday, July 22, 2007

This time it's from Epocware! one of my favorite developer by the way...

this is still on beta stage.

Major features:

- Profile switching by time schedule
- Profile switching by Calendar appointments (via keyword)
- Profile switching by location (via GSM cells)
- Timed profile activation
- Personalization (a la standard Profiles)
- Safety! Offline profile will never be turned off automatically

But is Handy Profiles the Best profile switcher on the market? i'll try to answer to this in my next review soon...but i can tell you that the feature i like the most is profile switching by location, that what i missed in Best Profiles...i'll remind you that SmartProfile included also this great feature but i stopped using it because I got so many false activations/deactivations that I couldn't rely on it, the particularity of Handy Profiles is that it has 10 seconds delay protection from "fake" cell switching. It means that if a fake cell appears, but then goes off during 10 seconds, then it will be ignored. There won't be profile switchig in such case.

In the past i asked myself about priority for Rules but didn't test it, If for example we have overlapping location and calendar rules (shouldn't happen I know) then what happens? Should at least be a warning? the good news is If some rules are overlapping, they activate one by one at their activation times. There is a kind of virtual stack of rules. The top rule (last activated) is always active.

What i miss till now is that Handy Profiles needs more flexibility for working with GSM cells i.e adding new cells to an existing location and ability for editing location cells.

Also, (and for that reason i'll say that it's not the complete solution on the market) Handy Profiles need some more features (by comparing it with best profiles), not just switching proifles but also turn on/off Bluetooth, WiFi, start apps, ... in other words, we need Advanced profile settings and by that, Handy Profiles will become the best solution in the market...;)

Br, Andrey from Epocware, said :

Unfortunately, the above changes requires lots of time to be done in version 1.0. They are scheduled to version 1.01.

1. Handy Profiles ver 1.0 to be released this week. There is one more change that we will make comparing to the current version. The location rules will get lower priority than time- or Calendar-based rules. There are several reasons for that. One of them is that manually scheduled rule (e.g. meeting from Calendar) must overcome a "random" location rule (e.g. office location).

2. There is one more BIG thing to be released in a few weeks (really cannot say anthing right now). And we are plannig a big/long public beta testing for it (not short like this one). There you will be able not only suggest, but also get the required feature.

Please feel free to test it, and comment to this post if you've some bugs or suggestions ;)

Call Filter v0.6.0 !

Blocks unwanted calls?

Allows block/unblock calls on the go ..?

Maintains a log of rejected calls? .. and allows to send an sms or make a call to the rejected caller immidiately !?

The best of all .... its all at no cost ...?

Call Filter from Anfymobile is a utility application realised under the concept "Simple Yet Efficient" for your Symbian devices. It allows you to hang-up any incoming calls from contacts selected as a filter rule in main application screen.

Gives you a very convenient and quick access to block/unblock some phone number at runtime. This is convenient in situations when your BOSS is always on your head and you don't want to answer his call at certain moments during the day, it takes a few clicks and you are done blocking your BOSS calls. The logs screen maintains a list of rejected calls and allows placing a quick call or an sms to the rejected phone number. So this is what we call "Simple Yet Efficient".

Filter Rules

The rules screen allowing users to add any contact or a phone number that shall be rejected automatically. As soon as a rule is added it is set as active, note the green light, later if you would like to allow incoming calls from this number tap the light and that particular rule would become inactive.

- Add Rule : Adding a rule is simple. Select "more" -> "new" and you can add a contact from your phone book or you can add a phone number directly that shall be blocked.

- Edit Rule : On the main screen you will find an Edit button, it will allow you to edit a selected rule. You can only edit one rule at a time.

- Activate/Deactivate Rule : A rule when added is set as Active, to deactivate it you can tap the green button on the rule and the button shall become red hence its deactivated now.

- Delete Rule : You may delete a single rule or a marked selection of rules from more-> Delete.

Rejected Call Logs

The logs screen of the application, it allows you to have a very quick look to the calls that were rejected by the Call Filter application with time stamps and the date.

- Call : When a log item is selected you can place a call to that rejected contact quickly, probably it was your boss and now you realised that should get in touch to him : Press the call button on screen and you are done.

- Send Sms : You may send an sms to any of the rejected numbers by selecting More-> Send Sms.

- Mark/Mark All This : is convenient when you want to delete a selected set of log entries.

- Clear Log : When you wanted to clear all the logged items, select More -> Clear Log and its neat.

- Zoom : You may like to zoom the list to look a little bigger for a quick readability then use this zoom feature of your smart phone.

- Delete : Allow you to delete a selected log entry.

Nokia Computer Vision Library

Thursday, July 19, 2007

The NokiaCV Library builds on the Symbian OS, extending imaging capabilities and standardizing the OS image internals. The library provides standard image operations, as well as a set of linear algebra operations needed in many advanced imaging applications. This serves as a building block for future advanced libraries. Some of the extensions are likely to be created by our research teams and be provided in future releases, but anyone can extend the library.

Here are some use cases where this library can be applied to:

Capture Enhancement:

With color conversions and image wrapper, we can modify images and manipulate pixels directly and easily.
Developers can make high-quality algorithms for panoramas.
Developers also can implement complex algorithms without requiring building and debugging of a platform.

Gaming/User Interfaces

The library provides robust motion estimation as a software component, it is ready for games and applications.

Post-capture Editing

Image warping operation can be used to create standard warping or in other entertainment uses.
By image compositing, we can add items to captured images.

See the library overview to get a glimpse of the features of this library.

YOYAP! a personalised Animated Video Messaging!

Friday, July 13, 2007

Skyestream (known by their fantastic full screen caller ID image/video ringtone products) has just released another funny multi-media software named YOYAP!

(...) YOYAP! is a fun new tool that lets you create customized 3D movies (in 3gp format) starring a wide range of characters, add your own audio message (voice, music, or anything else), change the background image, and send the finished product via MMS or bluetooth. You can even control the character’s facial gestures (eyes, eyebrows, blinking, etc)! The character’s mouth will automatically move in relative accordance with the audio that you add and you can also set the character’s overall mood to match your message (happy, sad or angry). If all of that isn’t enough for you, YOYAP! can also engage with voice calls and provide live animation that mimics the audio pattern of the caller on the other end of the line so that it looks like the character is talking to you! Long story short, YOYAP! packs a whole lot of punch into a fun little package (...)

CellTrack for Symbian 3rd Edition out now!

The work on the version for the 3rd generation of the Symbian OS is in progress - since January 2007. I finished the first version with an unsigned and untested status and plan to sign it when all things are verified by using the software. If you are interested you will need a Symbian developer account to sign it by your own. as Axel Fischer said !

CellTrack is a program to collect some phone information about the cell you are connected to - like the net monitor and so on...

Most things are equal to the old version for the 2nd Edition

New things:

- using internal or external GPS, select in settings and restart the software

Problems at the moment:
- no CBS functions available - not available in this phone api or not found at the moment
- bitmap as picture for the cell are not shown
- WCDMA signals seems a little bit of frozen - that's what the telephone api gives back
- bitmap for the signal values are only scaled so in some screen sizes it doesn't look very nice

--> A detailed review will follow in the next days ;)

[UPDATE] LogExport v1.1

Sunday, July 8, 2007

LogExport is a small program to Export the Call Register data to a CSV file. It only does that thing, no more and no less. You will only find one menu: Export, the analysis task can be done by a spreadsheet. I was actually planning to give analysis options, but after reading so many subscription plans from different providers, there are some many differences which makes it hard to program.

So, it will be interesting to be able to analyze our call log. By analyzing call log, we can answer questions like: How long is my average call duration?, did I spent most of my money for SMS?, would it be better if I take this plan from the provider X over the others?.

Most provider doesn’t send the bill in digital format, and for those that do send in digital format, we need to parse the data (because they are usually in PDF format), and match the phone numbers with our phone book (because they don’t have our phonebook). It will be nice if we can just pull/export the call register data from our phone to a CSV file. We can then analyze the CSV file using any spreadsheet programs (including the default Spreadsheet on S60 3rd edition).

A new version 1.1 that uses local time (instead of UTC) is available. The default filename is now the current date/month/year. Sorry, it took me a long time for this minor bug fix.
