Free 5530 Apps: Top 10 Free Applications For Nokia 5530

I recently got a Nokia 5530 XpressMusic. When I first opened it, I thought it looked just like a toy. However, now I realize that the Nokia 5530 is really a powerful device. It has an extremely sharp responsive touchscreen, a really good looking homescreen and an excellent size that makes it a very practical device to carry anywhere. But, for the Nokia 5530 to be a powerful device, there are some applications that need to be installed. Here is our list of top 10 free applications for the Nokia 5530:

10. Handwriting Calculator:

As this phone is generally aimed at young people; young people usually are taking some kind of math. Handwriting calculator is that free calculator that will help with some complex problems. The comfortable stylus that comes with the 5530, the very responsive screen and this app, make one of the coolest calculators ever. Get

It does lack some functions but is very usable. Looks amazingly well on the Nokia 5530, very responsive and fast. To get free Facebook for the Nokia 5530 just head here: Get

6. Google Maps

Unfortunately, the Nokia 5530 does not pack a GPS unit. That means that Nokia Maps is really unusable, plus, the if you install Nokia Maps, the memory card would be filled with maps instead of music. The Nokia 5530 still can be a powerful location device with Google Maps. With My Location, you will now more or less where you are and how to get to that point. To get Google Maps just head to Google mobile on your 5530 and then select ”more”  finally select Maps and download.

5. Photo Browser

The stunning 3D effects are just amazing while showing pictures to Friends. Generally, Photo Browser is one of the first apps I install on touchscreen devices. Get it here: Get

4. Playlist DJ

1. Vlingo

vlingo nokiaVlingo is the most amazing application for Nokia touchscreen devices. It allows you to search the internet, update Facebook, send emails, send SMS, launch an app or call someone by just talking to the phone. It does work, I thought that this app would just barely recognize my voice. Amazingly, it does an excellent job deciphering everything I say. I have this app first row in my homescreen to search anything quick, at first I thought it was just cool. Then I realized the convenience of searching google by just talking. Get here: Get

  • asif eminov

    facebook aps don`t work. :(

  • boatman

    facebook app isn’t instaled on the 5530 but you can find the app by googling “facebook for nokia”. download and install the app manually. its easy forgot the site i got it from had a huge display of free apps. the app is great better than the browser

  • Azyl

    Ovi won’t help?
    I guess we might as well just browse facebook/youtube using the phone’s web and just bookmark the page. It would be better to save the link than to just type the whole adress all over again when we want to facebook/youtube, since there’s no available app yet.
