Natgeo Photos- Experience Natgeo on your 5800sFiled Under Nokia 5800 Applications
Love capturing the photons? Nah, we aren’t talking about any experiments relating to Molecular Physics here, but a very subtle art called photography. If you are into photography, the archives of National Geographic must be akin to the holy grail! Shutterbucks not limiting, nature enthusiasts flock this popular service which extends beyond the web space (into the traditional print and electronic media).
We are not sure what category of the target audience you belong to, but we can assure you that Natgeo Photos has something to offer for everyone. Just how much you will love to have this is something you will have to find out through our brief review, which you can catch after the break.
We won’t waste much time: we are a tad disappointed with the app for we were expecting to see content customized to the screen resolution of our 5800s. If you were thinking about downloading some breathtaking wallpapers for your 5800s via the app, you will have to look somewhere else for that isn’t supported either but what the app brings to table is access to the archives of NatGeo, which you could have easily accessed via the symbian browser but the content is more streamlined within the app and there are few perks like being able to share the article/photo via SMS and Email.
What we like?
- Easy-to-use user interface
- Sharing options
What we don’t like?
- Content not optimized for 5800 screen resolution
As we said earlier, we are disappointed with the app, for its shortcomings weigh far too much for us to overlook. Further there are hardly any benefits (except for easy sharing of articles/photos) that the app provides in comparison to their mobile website. Being fans of NatGeo ourselves, we were expecting something more from the app, and we were thoroughly let down. Not surprisingly, we are NOT recommending this app to our readers.
In case you are hardcore fans of NatGeo, you can download the app for free from the ovi store
