My favorite S60 App is Skyfire, the browser that enables me to replace my computer with my mobile phone and have full access to the web and mobile websites. When I first got the Nokia 5800, I tried to install Skyfire; and it installed but was impossible to use without hardware keys. And today that I got the Nokia N97, I can confirm that Skyfire works in the Nokia N97! I installed Skyfire right away on my N97, and I was very surprised to see it working. Unfortunately, although Skyfire is very usable in the N97, it does not work 100%. You can use the D-Pad and the QWERTY keyboard to type and navigate the websites, the browser itself works pretty well too, all the sites show correctly and Skyfire zooms at the correct size of the N97s screen; what is completely unusable are the ”Back” and ”Menu” options that are activated with the right and left softkey of 3rd Ed devices, but good news are, that you can still navigate and use Skyfire just as you would in a compatible device.
Installing Skyfire in your Nokia N97 is very easy, just go to get.skyfire.com and download the app, install even if says is not compatible. Remember that the sofkeys don’t work, so use the d-pad and press center to jump all the notices at the begining of the installation. Any problem, just leave a comment.
