Skeptical Science now a Nokia app

Posted on 30 May 2010 by John Cook

Skeptical Science is now available as a Nokia app! This comes courtesy of Jean-François Barsoum who generously donated his time creating the app using the Ovi App Wizard. As the App Wizard is a free service, it doesn't offer all the bells and whistles of the iPhone app. Nevertheless, it does have one feature the iPhone app doesn't yet have - all the latest blog posts. So for Nokia users, you now have easy access to all Skeptical Science blog posts and skeptic arguments on your phone.

Nokia have phones with both portrait and landscape screens. Here are some screenshots of the skeptic arguments on the taller, touchscreens.

The one unique thing about the Nokia app is it also includes the latest blog posts:


Of course, Nokia phones show a bit more variety than the iPhone. Here are some screenshots Jean-François sent me of how the app looks on an E71 phone with a landscape screen:


The app is very small, about 5kb. This is because the app doesn't store the information on your phone. This means you need a data connection (Wifi or network) to access the information. Click here to download the Nokia app off the web. You can also download the app via the app store icon on Nokia phones (look for the icon shown right).

Lastly, to Android phone users, be patient, your app is just around the corner. Shine Tech are putting the finishing touches on the Skeptical Science Android app and I'm hoping to see a beta version very shortly.

  1. Palm Pre Plus app? Now that Palm is about to be part of HP and is on Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint? Pretty please? With your sweetener-of-choice on top?

  3. Amazing how fragmented the phone market is. How about we start an OS flame war? Something we can all disagree on!

  6. doug: Are we talking a phone OS flame war, or a PC OS flame war, or both? Shall we have a flame war about what to have the flame war about? :-P John: very cool, more exposure for this wonderful site. Good to hear an update about the Android app - I await it with bated breath... Hmm, I'm pretty sure that shouldn't be "baited breath"... oh, no, a grammar flame war! :-D

  7. For those of you with other phones (Pre, Android, etc.) you might consider using a good RSS reader app as a stop-gap. There are XML RSS feeds for both the ARguments and the Blog, so if you can read those feeds using a mobile reader, you're golden.

  8. hi Clicked on the Nokia App link only to be greeted with a page saying "Sorry, this item is no longer available" Is the Nokia App unavailable temporarily? If not the link should be removed.
