Gravity, a really nice Twitter app lands on Symbian S60 phones

Gravity S60 Nokia screenshot 0004At last, smartphones running the Nokia-led Symbian S60 OS have a native Twitter application. And a very slick one at that.

Gravity is supported on phones running S60 version 3, including my own Nokia E71, as well as the latest touch-friendly S60 version 5, which powers the Nokia 5800 (aka the Tube) and the upcoming N97.

The app supports a host of features, including…

  • Tweet, reply, DM, follow & unfollow, create favourites, search, and auto-update
  • Tabbed view of your Timeline, Replies, Messages, Friends
  • Setup and use as many accounts as you want at the same time
  • Twitter-Search section with multiple search tabs and Twitter Trends
  • Post pictures via TwitPic
  • Open URLs from any Tweet

It’s also proof that S60 apps can be as polished and easy to use as those on Apple’s iconic device, and along with the recent S60 native YouTube client, sets a new standard for third-party S60 applications. Now somebody just needs to create a decent S60 Facebook app.
