Update: 13th May, 2012
Nokia nailed down the problem with “Download failure” it will be fixed on Monday (14 Apr 2012), and users will be able to download 1.0.0 version safely. Please do NOT press “Download” button more than 10 times to avoid double charges. More info at their official site: http://fm-radio.mobi
Nokia N9 FM Radio application for N9 unlocks FM receiver functionality for Nokia N9 phones. New version has 2 different themes and RDS support, it is far most popular radio application in the OVI Store.
Previously FM Radio (Retro) was shared for free as Beta version with many users, after testing was done, author gathered a lot of important feedback and made improvements in the backend. For instance, it would be impossible to support so many different headsets without Beta testing. Retro design was recognized by users as well, so new version has got a clear Fallout style theme. FM Radio was the first radio application in the store and after the public release became most popular very fast.
First OVI Store version was obviously lacking RDS support and in despite of good looking UI did not fully fit into Nokia N9 style. But version 1.0.0 change the situation completely. Now user can choose between Retro style and new Nokia N9 theme. New version has automatic channel search and supports favourite channel list.
After the introduction, let’s check available features:
A lucky fellow on maemo.org got a Nokia N9 from his friend working in Nokia which is running unreleased PR1.2 for Nokia N9. This topic has excited the members to find out what this new PR1.2, much awaited release for N9, looks like. A hot discussion about PR1.2 is going in the thread.
He shared few screenshots:
As you may notice in above screenshot, this PR1.2 has support for app folders on homescreen, copy-paste functionality in browser, etc. Changelog also says that it brings support for video calling but tamerbatar, who is lucky enough to have this running on his N9, has refused such feature in his PR1.2.

NetView is a nice free app available for MeeGo device Nokia N9 (N950 of course). It allows you to use your phone with a browser over HTTP or with secure SSL from some windows client like SSVNC. This app uses VNC for this.
Netview is a VNC based remote control for your phone. Netview enables you to view and interact with your phone from your laptop via a wifi connection. It provides an easy way to access the phones’ apps from a computer. It is based on X11VNC.
- Mouse and keyboard input.
- Orientation changes.
- Password protection.
- Only one viewer connected at a time.
- Secure (SSL encrypted) connection.
- Connection via HTTP from your web browser.
- Low power consumption.
NetView runs as a Java Applet in your browser and shows you the device screen. The screen in browser isn’t smooth. App may have limited usage in real life but it can be very handy when in the situations like when I corrupted my N9’s keyboard.
You can download it from Nokia Store: Download
