Ovi Store: Top Five Nokia E63 Apps

Published by Mike Browne September 04, 2009

Ovi Store: Top Nokia E63 ever!The Nokia E63 may not have grabbed the imagination of users as much as the business-formal Nokia E71, but this brightly coloured and funky-fresh handset has a great deal to offer it. Being a Symbian S60 3rd Edition phone it can make use of a whole host of apps on Nokia’s Ovi Store. Here we bring you the Top Five Nokia E63 apps on Ovi Store…

The Nokia E63 is the slightly more glamorous, colourful sibling to the more strait-laced E71. A wide-screened smartphone with one of the best keyboards around, the E63 can also run some pretty tasty software. Here are the latest E63-compatible apps recommended from the Ovi Store.

Private SMS

Type: Utilities

Price: £8.00

Size: 0.171MB


Private SMS will let you filter certain text or multimedia messages and have them automatically placed into a ‘Private’ folder. The new folder can only be accessed with a password and can even be hidden from view if you are feeling particularly paranoid. What you use this for is up to you, of course. Just try to play nice, ok?


Type: Utilities

Price: Free

Size: 0.867 MB

DOWNLOAD: SmartConnect

SmartConnect is a Symbian connection manager that you can set as your default method for connecting to the Internet via your phone. The app will automatically get you the best connection it can – trying local wifi nodes, graded by speed and cost or defaulting to 3G/EDGE if all else fails. With this app you need never think about how to connect again.

WattPad eBooks

Type: Entertainment

Price: Free

Size: 0.048MB

DOWNLOAD: WattPad eBooks

WattPad is an eBook reader that offers instant access to thousands of free books. You can download public domain or Creative Commons licensed texts and users are encouraged to submit their own creations too. Over 100,000 titles are available at the moment with more to come – everything from classics to shoddily written fan fictionis just a click away.

Weight Loss Equations Calc

Type: Reference

Price: £4.00

Size: 0.017 MB

DOWNLOAD: Weight Loss Equations Calc

This handy app will work out your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) – the amount of energy that you burn through while at rest. This is useful when you are trying to shed a few pounds and can help you better calculate the ideal food intake for your lifestyle. Can aid weight loss only as part of a calorie controlled diet, we would imagine.

SPB Wallet

Type: Business

Price: £12.99

Size: 4.28MB


One of the tricky problems of modern life is the amount of important stuff you have to remember. Passwords, PIN numbers, online banking security questions and much more. Keeping all your passwords the same and using ‘1234’ as your PIN is not an ideal solution, assuming you want to keep your money, so what to do? Well, you could try a password manager app like SPB Wallet. This will keep your passwords and PINs safe, with just one (fairly complex) password to lock them all up. You can sync your ’wallet’ with a Windows PC or other mobile devices, so you needn’t worry about losing your data if you lose your phone.

Before you can download any of these apps you’ll need to register your device with Ovi Store, which also entitles you to updates and message alerts from Nokia and is a great way of keeping abreast of what’s going on at the Ovi Store.
