Hi all, I just wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for the new year. Let’s hope 2012 brings everything we hope and wish for. Thank you for taking the time to read my little blog.
This is the second HDR application to appear in the Nokia Store for the Nokia N9 and is the same application that appeared some time ago for the Symbian^3 devices such as the Nokia N8. I have to say I love the application on the Nokia N8.
So how does it perform on the N9, I should also say that I will be doing a quick comparison post after this to compare the two HDR applications available for the Nokia N9. Cost wise for us in Europe it is €3.00
Continuing from a previous post “A Finnish Phone in New York” and having seen what phones people are using in London these days it would seem appropriate. I think I saw two Nokia devices in 3 days, other than my wife’s and mine of course. So here is London as seen by my Nokia N8.
Being British most people would think we know London well, not quite so, well not me anyway. I try wherever possible to avoid it, but I did enjoy my weekend this time.

Well lets take a quick run through so you can see what you need to do, and when I say “see” I mean it metaphorically as I can’t take screen grabs to show you. So what settings are there to play with?
Here is a rundown. I will point out however that some of the settings I have absolutely no clue about as I have never come across them before, namely all those settings in “Scenes”. Such as “Beach”, really you need a setting for a beach? I guess you do, not sure why. Continue Reading
