More Software Searching on Nokia's International Sites

by Darla Mack

This past weekend I spent time again checking out software available on Nokia's Hong Kong site.  As before, I came across some cool new apps, but this time they did in fact have one available for the N95.   

Animated SMS by Zensis is a cool application that turns smiley codes into graphics.  Once installed, if someone sends you an sms with the smiley code it will show up in your inbox as an animated smiley!

Screenshot0051 Screenshot0053 When creating an Animated SMS you can do so right from your Message folder.  Another great feature of the app is that you can send animations as a text instead of mms.

Now the bad part is that this app is only for use on Nokia handsets from Hong Kong.  You will receive an error message when trying to send a message, but it won't prevent you from sending it.

According to the developers site, they are trying to introduce Animated SMS to other countries but for now only phones from Nokia Hong Kong and Macau can use it.

Animated SMS is available for Nokia's N95, N93i, N93, N91, N80, N73, N71, E70, E65, E61, E60, E50, 6290, 5700 Xpress Music and 5500 Sport

Sorry apologies for my misunderstanding. Are you saying this app does work outside of Hong Kong, just that it gives us the error as if it does not work? Or are you saying it does not work at all?

@dani2xll - the app works outside of Hong Kong. The error message still pops up, just dismiss it and send the message as usual.

Thanks a lot for this! It´s working! Dont understand why Its so difficult to get smileys in S60. N95 is my first S60 and I love it. But the calendar is better in S40 and i miss my smileys... So i hope in the future even better apps for smileys is introduced! :-)
