Want more apps to your Nokia N900?


When I first got my n900, I thought the applications that I can download was unlimited. Unfortunately when I went to App Manager, I can count the apps with my fingers. So I immediately went online and searched for apps. I found that I just need to some catalogs and I can download as many apps as I want.

Here's a step by step

Go to app manager

Click on the Application manager menu which is on top of the screen

Click on Application catalogs

Click New

Enter the following
                                       For extras-testing: (apps are  for testing purposes and not for end users)

                                       For extras-devel:

Then click Save.

Once you hit save, it should update

After the update, click on download and you should be able to see tons of apps!

2. Open fAPN
3. Hit add new APN
4. Enter desired name then hit add
5. Go to settings
6. Internet Connections
7. Connections
8. Highlight the new APN then hit edit then next
9. Access point name: and leave the rest blank
10. Hit next
11. Hit advanced
12. Use proxy: true
      HTTP proxy:
      Port number: 8080
      Automatic configuration: true
      Web address:
13. Hit save then finish
14. Then I installed fMMS
15. Open fMMS
16.APN: choose the one that you just added
     Resize image width: 300
     Your phone number: your own phone number
17. Hit save

There you go!

If you have other service, you can find some of the settings here.

Good luck!
