N8 Apps - Gravity

App Price: $12.00 AUD
App Category: Application > Social Networks
Available on Nokia’s latest smartphones - Nokia C7, Nokia E7 and Nokia N8, plus many more

For serious social network addicts, Gravity is an application by that allows you to watch multiple social network accounts at the same time, including Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare and many more.

The dashboard displays an overview of new messages, replies and last updates from all your social media accounts.

For Twitter, for example, you can select a tweet and a context menu pops up which makes replying or retweeting an easy two-step process. And for the commercial user, you can save Twitter searches to keep an eye on what people are saying about your company or product.

The application has also utilised the touchscreen on the Nokia N8 very effectively – the large screen means you catch more of the action in one look.

The verdict
If you haven’t tried out Twitter, Gravity will have you tweeting like an addict in no time.

Nokia N8 Apps - Camera Pro

App Price: $4.00 AUD
App Category: Application > Photo & Video
Available on the Nokia N8, Nokia C7, Nokia X7

This app was tested on the Nokia N8 and has been the talk of the twitterverse. CameraPro by software developer Harald Meyer takes the incredible 12MP camera on the Nokia N8 and supercharges it with features that are found on more advanced point-and-shoot cameras. Adding to the impressive N8 imaging capabilities, CameraPro introduces burst mode to allow you to take more than one successive shot in time lapse mode, so you can capture amazing changes in scenery such as sunsets and incoming storms.

This application will appeal to photography enthusiasts who want to do more than take a group photo with friends. Also, the continuous autofocus will automatically adjust the video focus as you are filming.

The verdict
It seems you can only use the video mode in the lowest resolution setting. However, this is a very promising app and a must-have for the diehard photographers and gadget fans out there.
