A Taste of T9 Nav from Symbian-Lifeblog, S.60.com, Nokia E65 BlogSpot, & AAS Reviews

Here are some notable highlights from some recent reviews of T9 Nav in the media, including this video review: 

Carleton Lindow Jr, gives T9 Nav high ratings in both his review on S.60.com and Nokia E65 BlogSpot:

“5 out of 5”

“A must have” 

CHANGING THEMES AND PROFILES

“T9 Nav ‘serves the shortest shortcut”

Symbian-Lifeblog highlights on how you can use T9 Nav to directly locate the theme that you are looking by just pressing the first few letters of its name.   Once you find it, you can set it on by simply selecting it.  

“Simple as that”

BRINGING CONTENT HOME

According to Steve Litchfield’s review on All About Symbian:

“T9 Nav does “what it promises – obviating the need for the S60 menu and bringing its contents (and a lot more) into the existing home/standby screen”.

SEARCHING NUMERIC FIELDS MAKES FINDING CONTACTS EASIER

The review also goes on to say: 

“One of T9Nav’s best…abilities is that it searches within numeric fields. Suppose someone calls your landline while you were out but you don’t recognise the number. Remembering just the last few digits “something 8382….” you open up your phone and tap in 8382 into the standby screen/T9Nav. Any matches in your Contacts will be shown.

“Very useful indeed.”

Too Many Files, Too Little Time

Too many files, too little time

Do you have lots of applications on your phone -stored within folders and sub folders? Or do you have tons of music loaded on your device?  Or 100’s of photos?  Or more contacts than you even realized you knew?  

If you are like me, you keep adding content to your device.  At the same time, you get frustrated with how long it takes to find what you are looking for.  It is all about content discoverability.  With T9 nav, all you need to do is key in the name or phone number for the content you are looking for right from the standby/idle screen.  It gives you direct access to virtually anything on your device.   As you press more keys it presents options.  When you see what you want in the list, just click on it and you will be taken to it.    If you have a S60/ Symbian 60 V3 phone, check it out on  Nokia Software Market:  http://www.softwaremarket.nokia.com/?action=productDetails&pID=6302&pmsid=305&lang=en

A Key Press Too Far

371177532_46fc1c5cc3_mAs I become more immersed in technologies -or as more technologies find their way into more products in my life  -I am becoming less tolerant of having to invest time and key presses to get to the feature I want.  No where is this more true than with my mobile phone.  I tend to upgrade my phone every 1-2 years.  With each new device, I like to see what kind of features and aps are included.  This novelty lasts about a day.  By day two, I’m annoyed with having to remember how to turn this on with this device or where I can find that mp3 I just loaded.   That is where T9 Nav comes in.  T9 Nav is a simple way to access almost anything stored on your device with a few key presses.  

Say you can’t remember under which menu  Bluetooth sits.  Type in B  L  U E (or 2  5  8  3). Bluetooth shows up in your list of results. 

All you have to do is scroll down to Bluetooth and select it. You are immediately taken to the Bluetooth settings application.  No need to remember its exact location.  T9 Nav doesn’t just tell you where it is;  it takes you there:

Select Bluetooth setting with only three clicks
