Nokia Bots beautify the homescreens of the Nokia N97 & N97 Mini
When you compare S60 5thh edition that's running on the Nokia N97 & N97 Mini to other platforms, you begin to notice the lack of eye candy or quick access to common functions of the device. That's where Nokia Bots comes into play by adding a new level of experience for owners so that it will “improve the user experience with your daily routines.” It's actually an add-on developed by Nokia Beta Labs that's intended to run on the homescreen so that it'll provide users access to four different Nokia Bots – these include the Alarm, Profile, Shortcut, and Battery Bots. Pretty much they're self explanatory as the Alarm Bot learns the user's alarm preferences and offers some suggestions on alarms and nightly profile changes. The Profile Bot will automatically change the profile of the handset according to your meetings/schedule. The Shortcut Bot gives quick access to some commonly used applications while the Battery Bot monitors the status of the battery and “reminds you in advance to connect the charger.” All in all, they seem quite useful to the user who prefers to have everything right on their homescreen as opposed to the sometimes scattered appearance of some platforms.
