My N73

A blog on Nokia N73 Mobile

Mobizines – Mobile Magazines in your N73

Do you like reading magazines? How about reading technology news, gadgets, game reviews, fashion, gossips etc in your mobile ? Or do you want to read your favorite site feeds in a more readable format? Then you have a very interesting application which makes it possible on your N73 (of course, many other mobile platforms are supported as it is JAVA). Yes, it is free. πŸ™‚

What this application does is, it downloads contents from websites, TV channels, Magazines etc in a more readable format for your mobile. It optimizes the content to be displayed in resolutions that can handle by your mobile device. So there will be hardly any horizontal scrolling. So it is better than reading the original content online even if it is available. And once an item is downloaded, unlike web pages you don’t need to download again for each time. Also, the files are downloaded in a compressed format. So it is fast and can save your money on data traffic.

There are lots of mobizines available and the number is increasing. Many of them are updated daily. It can alert you if there is an update for any magazine. You can subscribe to any available mobizines. You can also add your favorite RSS feeds. The list includes

  • cnet.co.uk
  • ZDnet.co.uk
  • pocket -lint
  • BBC
  • Cricket 365
  • Game Spot
  • Maxim etc.

For a number of supported mobizines, please visit http://www.mobizines.com/browse . As you can add your own RSS feeds, the list is virtually unlimited. (Note: Some of them are available only through the RSS feeds. So you must sign up for fully utilizing the application.)

The interface is also good with different backgrounds for each and every magazine. You can use your joystick to navigate.

Once you sign up with mobizine, you can manage mobizines via web. You need to sign up to use the My Mobizines section.

Want to read more about this nice application? See this link.

To download, you can either get the link as a SMS. But I prefer manual installation. You can follow these simple steps.

  • Go to http://www.mobizines.com/download/
  • Go to the QVGA resolution supported phones list. Or click here
  • Download the file that reads “Download mobizines_qvga.jar (185kb)”
  • Install via Nokia PC Suite
  • You may be asked to sent an SMS when it is running for the first time. Allow it. (Note: You will be charged for the SMS by your carrier). You are done.
  • Now you can create an account in Mobizines site for managing content more effectively. Sign Up and a pin code will be sent to your mobile. You will need to enter it to complete the registration.

Now you can manage your mobizines either via your N73 or through the drag and drop interface in My Mobizines section.

  1. Ooo!
    Looks like you’ve got the JAVA version there mate – you know there’s a super-whizzy Symbian version now right?
    I had the Java version – but I definitely prefer the Symbian one – drop them an email at help@mobizines.com and they should be able to sort you out.

    Nice blog by the way – I’m a big N73 fan myself.
