Atomic Dreams- Read Comics on Your Nokia 5800Filed Under Nokia 5800 Applications
With a high resolution 3.2″ screen of our 5800s, it was only a matter of time before some developer ported the comics to the vibrant touchscreens of 5800s. Thanks to Carnival Comics, the first comics has finally arrived on the symbian stage.
While we grew up on a staple diet of comics from the benches of Marvel and manga from the Land of rising sun, Atomic dreams is the latest entry to our comics menu. Now that we can carry it around in our 5800s, we know exactly what to do the next time we or on the tram or bus. Will the latest app keep you occupied during the next tram/bus ride? Hit the jump button to find out.
The first thing that catches your attention is the stunning artwork of the comics. Not only is it eye-catching, it looks like it was made specially to match the resolution of our 5800s. The comic is devoid of any buttons so that none of the screen real estate is wasted to accommodate a few buttons that are seldom used. Now one may ask how to navigate within the app, in absence of any visible buttons. The answer is simple and intuitive, just flip the pages as in a paper-book to navigate to different screens within the comics. Ain’t that simple and yet cool?
What we like?
- Eye-catching graphics
- Intuitive browsing style
- 100% of screen real estate used for the comics
What we hate?
- Font size in conversation bubble may be too small for convenience for a small set of users
- The present version is too small to keep us engrossed for a decent duration of time
With the first chapter of Atomic Dreams- The Lost Journal of J. Oppenheimer, Nokia and Carnival Comics have demonstrated how comics paper based comic can be ported to a touch screen phone. After playing around with the comics, we must confess that this is one of the best things to happen to 5800s. We hope more comic companies will realise the potential of our 5800s and release their comics on this promising platform.
