Reviews from All About Symbian

Last Build Date: Mon, 28 Jan 2013 00:22:01 +0100



Fri, 07 Oct 2005 14:11:00 +0100

There are times when what you want in a game is a bundle of massive plot lines, ongoing game play, full screen videos, voice actors and the complexity of the Space Shuttle. But, conversely, there are also times where you just want to start something, get straight to the game, play for a few minutes and then switch back to real life. Biniax gives you the latter.

Nokia Smartphone Hacks

Thu, 06 Oct 2005 14:07:00 +0100

There’s very little competition in the book market (for those not needing the massive doorstop-sized developer books from Symbian Press). We’ve looked previously at "101 Cool Smartphone Techniques" and now comes a very similar book from O’Reilly: Nokia Smartphone Hacks. Continue reading the full review at AAS...

Nokia Music Pack

Wed, 05 Oct 2005 14:09:00 +0100

Coinciding with the release of the 'Nokia 6630 Music Edition', Nokia announced (and shipped) the 'Nokia Music Pack', a kit of accessories designed to turn all those other millions of 6630s into Music Editions too. But what's in it and is it worth buying? Continue reading the full review at AAS...

Route 66 Mobile Britain 2006

Mon, 03 Oct 2005 16:28:00 +0100

The thing is, Route 66 for UIQ, running on a P910i smartphone in my hand, with automatic route calculation and voice guidance through to my destination anywhere in Great Britain (or in Europe, depending on which version you buy), would have seemed like magic a few years ago. Compared to the clunky old route planning systems we used to use on (for example) the Psion palmtops, Route 66 is simply light years ahead. But there's a big problem. TomTom. With their 10 years experience of route planning and super-slick programming skills, TomTom MOBILE 5 (reviewed here and here) simply sets an incredibly high standard. MOBILE 5 is utterly smooth and seamless, from beginning to end, and finding a glitch in the maps or instructions is a rare event. In comparison, Route 66 looks cobbled together, trying to copy MOBILE 5's interface in places, is slower in operation, has slower screen updates, generates sometimes misleading instructions and has an 'interestingly' thought out location selector. But that's the bottom line - let me start at the beginning. Continue reading the full review at AAS...

Personal Powerstation

Fri, 30 Sep 2005 13:54:00 +0100

It's every smartphone owner's nightmare. Your battery is on its last legs, you're on the move, on a bus, train or on foot, with no way of recharging from the mains or from a 12V car socket, and yet you need to stay in touch, making calls and perhaps sending emails. Or maybe you're the hardy type, exploring the wilder parts of the earth away from traditional electricity outlets? Either way, a way of generating your own power has got to be an interesting proposition. Continue reading the full review at AAS...

PMGA Minigolf

Wed, 21 Sep 2005 13:17:00 +0100

There's a big potential problem with PMGA Minigolf but I'm not going to tell you about it right away. See if you can guess as you read along. From Synergenix, rightly famed for their super-slick Symbian OS games, comes this Java-based minigolf simulation, presented in 'glorious' isometric 3D. Continue reading the full review at AAS...

If you've had any dabblings in the Palm and Pocket PC world over the last four or five years, you'll have heard the name HanDBase fairly regularly, as it's the market leading database on traditional PDAs. You'll also have heard of the product if you subscribe to Palmtop User, as the editor has been doing a tutorial series for it since about 1956... And now HanDBase is available for Symbian smartphones, too, a good move on DDH Software's part and a great opportunity for all Series 60 owners to ramp up (again) the number of things we call our phones to do.  Continue reading the full review at AAS...

Rally PRO Contest

Thu, 01 Sep 2005 10:50:00 +0100

Why oh why does the use of the word 'Rally' in a mobile game title usually indicate that it's not going to be very good? I've seen several examples over the years (V-Rally on Psion was by far the worst) and this is just as disappointing. Continue reading the full review at AAS...

Golf PRO Contest

Wed, 31 Aug 2005 18:16:00 +0100

The beauty and serenity of a golf course is always a humbling thing for someone who can appreciate nature (even when it is crafted) and the game of golf, much like those stunning courses can be a peaceful and relaxing thing. Whether you're playing an import copy of Wicked 18 on the Mega Drive, the latest PSP Hot Shots Golf game or a simple S60 game, when golf is done right it can be a wonderful thing. I'm happy to report that the Synergenix-published Golf PRO Contest is one of those wonderful things. Continue reading the full review at AAS...

The defining characteristic of a smartphone, of course, is that it's (potentially) always online, with applications able to make full use of the wider Internet. In some cases, this means automatic updating, in others it means up to date financial or weather information. In QBubbleMP's case, it means being able to play against other people in real time, whether they're in Reading or Rio, in London or Los Angeles. The game works on all Symbian UIQ smartphones, letting you play what appears to be a pretty standard game of 'fire bubbles and try and match the colours' either in single (boring!) or multi-player mode.

Joe's Treasure Quest

Thu, 25 Aug 2005 11:36:00 +0100

Yes, this is another fairly high-scoring game, but don't get worried that I'm overrating these titles - I'm simply trying to bring you notice of the best games before the summer is completely gone. Rest assured that some of the turkeys will get named and shamed in due course! Continue reading the full review at AAS...

Balloon Headed Boy

Wed, 24 Aug 2005 15:12:00 +0100

There’s a lot to be said for the cutesy cartoon platform genre. Most of the time the words "cheap rip-off from somewhere else" are those words, but sometimes (just sometimes, mind you) you can use "a really nice game". Luckily for Morpheme, I can say the latter about their Java Midlet "Balloon Headed Boy." Continue reading the full review at AAS...
