> In reply to Supremo @ 2014-12-06 06:45 from KAem - click to readBelieve or not, Nokia Store got a 5MB update yesterday - but nobody knows what's new about it. :-) Some are speculating that it has something to do with Opera but no idea what it would be. Some say that some paid apps are now free - don't know about that either. :-)
I'm thinking of getting some cheap Android just for Skype calls from home, but can't afford it right now. Apart from that, the N8 still does all that I need. :-)
Got your theme from UC forum, I'll try it on my X2-00 later. :-)
What do you mean by "fully transparent"? I have a 3KB "theme" which has no elements whatsoever, so if you use SisContents or Theme Graphics Switcher to add new elements or icons to it, and install it, you will get the default Nokia Evolve theme with no changes except the new elements. Is that what you need? If it is, I can give you a link to Zedge where I uploaded it, just let me know. :-)

Been using Nokia N8 since June 2014 alongside an Android phone especially for apps. It has its share of goods and bads. Already hacked it because sooner or later, Nokia Store will be replaced with Opera Store, as per rumors. Had a Nokia X2-01, for which I created my first theme thanks to MdN8. It can be found in Java > Theme section of UC Forum by username Shivam88. I have been looking for a fully transparent theme for my Nokia N8 Belle Refresh. Tried many but most weren't fully transparent. So if anyone knows of a full transparent theme especially made for Symbian Belle, please provide the link here. Thanks in advance :-)

Hello, why n8 is again gaining popularity... 13% right now? It is ahead of lumia 1020, 1520 and many other lumias... Amazing?

On a side note, right now I have 243 apps installed in my N8. That includes the app that counted them. :-) Works with no problems whatsoever, the other day I rebooted it after 14 days, just to clean the memory a bit.

Seems like the N8's popularity is once again rising last days.

> In reply to MdN8 @ 2014-11-21 19:26 from B}QA - click to readYes. Ankiweb does work with opera mini. But you can only input entries individually. At least the windows version can do mass import and sync with the web version.

Stopped for a while because when they made the shift to 2.0, the pc program deleted all my cards when I tried to sync. Never again will I rely on silly processes that need internet connection. I'd rather backup and restore locally.

Does the web version of Anki work with Opera Mini? I can tell you right away not to count on the built-in browser, and Opera Mobile never worked properly for me. But I've used Opera Mini on this and on my previous phones and I'm just used to it. As for the apps, Symbian people have a saying "we have a bookmark for that" :-) I actually tried the Instagraph Uploader app for Symbian but after a day they didn't allow me to log in or register any more probably because they don't support Symbian officially. And... Who cares? I get a phone with an amazing camera and I'm supposed to ruin my photos with some silly filters and upload that for all the world to see? Nopes. :-)
Yes, new "smart"phones got people used to having a constant internet connection, but I don't need anything of the sort. I already pay for internet on my PC and it's flat. And I don't need anyone tracking me. I'm using FB Mobile with Opera Mini and no problems with that. Yes, only calls, and that's the only thing I really miss, since Skype stopped supporting Symbian I only have Nimbuzz and Fring left but most people only know about Skype and it's hard to persuade them to try anything else. Grrr. :-)
