Have a Nokia N8? Check out Rita's 10 steps postRemember Rita El Khoury from Symbian Guru? Well, she and Ricky Cadden have a site called Mobile R’n’R where they make a post every Monday on something mobile related. This week Rita posted a fantastic post for Symbian owners called 10 Steps to Make Sure Your Symbian Experience is Enjoyable and even though I have been using Symbian for years I discovered a few helpful tips and apps myself.

I tried using the Nokia Situations utility and it does a pretty good job, but I decided to give the Nokia Bots utility a try instead based on what Rita wrote about it. I don’t theme my orange Nokia N8 at the moment since I have an updated version of SPB Mobile Shell 3.7 that fixed that calendar bug I wrote about.

I have Gmail working fairly well for me now with the integrated email client, but it took several tries to get it to this point. I heard about Mobile Documents before, but never knew it handled email so I went and installed it on my N8 as Rita recommended and look forward to trying it out.

I completely agree with the Opera Mobile, Gravity, and Nokia Maps 3.06 recommendations. A couple other apps she recommended that I haven’t yet tried and just downloaded include WhatsApp, Socially, and the new Nokia Big Screen utility. The Nokia N8 is an excellent device (my wife still hugs me regularly in appreciation of her blue N8) and with amazing tips like this you can make it work just how you want it to.

Do you have any steps or apps to add to Rita’s thoughts?

It’s a great article. I stripped my homescreens down to two which has the benfit of freeing up RAM and just making it a lot more tidy. I alreay had Gravity, Ovi Maps 3.06 and Opera installed.

Mobile Documents is great so far. Gmail and Ovi set up were fine although I had to do my Virgin Media email from the desktop. It’s quick, has a brilliant attachment manager and is light years ahad of the native client. The Google docs part is brilliant too.

As a tip, I’ve also put a menu shortcut on my first homescreen which takes away using the somewhat fiddly home button for this function.

Loving this phone more each day, especially with brilliant tips like Rita’s!
