Re: Nokia N8 Software Update Available! Apps Update 1.0

This update is available also for the other Symbian^3 devices, but unfortunately there is no changelog.

I noticed improvements in general speed and in the menus, maybe it's a prelude to the upcoming firmware update! :smileyhappy:

I wonder if someone can provide more accurate informations...

 What country are you in?

I'm in the U.K. on the Virgin Mobile network, and no such update is available.

 

Cheers

Re: Nokia N8 Software Update Available! Apps Update 1.0

Just downloaded and installed the update on my Nokia N8 (O2-UK). I've noticed no difference to be honest, my phone was just as fast and smooth on those so called improvements. I'm also, still experiencing many of the problems, which I hope the upcoming firmware update will resolve. Still don't get the purpose of this prelude.

I did receive a similar update back in November so not sure if it's the same one.

Re: Nokia N8 Software Update Available! Apps Update 1.0

I'm from South Africa and also received the update and I'm also guessing that it updates the search app and widget, I had the search widget on one of my homescreens and after the update it disappeared.

Hallo:

Bellow are the changes:

 

  • Faster Camera startup, specially the part where it was taking a second before showing the display has been disappeared now.
  • Faster Messages start like overall feel of all phone apps
  • Animations seems to be smoother
  • Lock button locking the phone screen instantly

Faster Camera Startup: No.

Faster Messags Start: Yes! It starts now very quick.

Animations seems to be smoother: Uh, seems no change at all.

Lock Button: I don't know if it changed.

 

By the way, when go to Settings > Application manager > Installed apps.

you will notice in the log that there is a new app or widget installed called Searchwidget (1.01(1)).

windowed text entry.

 

1) setup the search widget

2) tap the field to enter text

3) gape in awe at the non-fullscreen text entry.

 

doesn't work that way with the sms screen, but that was supposed to be part of the big update anyway wasn't it?

Re: Nokia N8 Software Update Available! Apps Update 1.0

I tried to install the update but it failed. In the Update history it simply says "Apps Update 1.0 Installation failed 12/1". Now it wont let me install it. When I go to start the SW Update it says (all applications are up-to-date). I havent noticed any improvements and i do not have the updated search widget whic has apprently been added. Can anyone help.

 Got the update this morning.

The screen lock is about the same speed as before.

The camera takes about the same time to start up, but when taking a picture it is now a lot faster.

Other than that I see no other noticeable differences in speed.

 I've already turned off Theme effects and won't be turning them back on again, mostly because I don't particularly want the phone to make a song and dance about things when I ask it to perform a simple task like switching home screens. So I've noticed no difference there.

 

Cheers.

Change the date. It will force the refresh in Software Update. Or wait a day.

Re: Nokia N8 Software Update Available! Apps Update 1.0

As stated by the users above, the "Apps update 1.0" for N8 installs a new version of the Internet search application which you can access via web browser or add as a widget on the home screen. There are some improvements included in this version but no new features.
