fMobi 2.5 : The next step of evolution

We are happy to announce that fMobi 2.5 is finished and available at Nokia Store.

1. We have moved to Qt 4.74 based components for more native look and feel.

  • We changed the colour of buttons for both themes to better fit the interface and Facebook branding.
  • There is a new loading indicator. We tried with many and decided to stick with this one for now. Given more feedback, we will change the indicator design if required.
  • Input boxes are native Qt so now you get a magnifying glass on text selection.

2. You can now set your own background images as dashboard background. Just go to settings –> Tap on “Custom Background”. It will show all the images saved in your phone from where you can select any picture and set it as background.


If you have lots of images then this will take some time in scanning so have patience.

3. Name of languages are written in that language itself which makes it easy to identify which language a user should select.


4. Album and picture view is completely revamped. Now, when you tap to see shared images or when someone uploads a picture to an album then we show you the image with full width of the screen.


5. You no longer have to tap on buttons to go to next or previous image in the same album. Just swipe from an edge and you will navigate to next or previous image in that same album.



Tapping on the zoom-in button in the overlay toolbar which comes on single tap will open the image in full size. You can now also pinch to zoom. fMobi now loads higher quality images in Album and picture viewer by default.

6. Now you can save any link which your friend have shared to Read it Later. Try SymPaper for accessing Read It later on your Symbian phone.


7. fMobi will now show you notification when you receive a chat message, when you are not in chat view. Tapping this notification will take you to that chat.


8. We now show a user’s info in a cleaner way.


9. Profile picture, Album cover, and all other pictures now have place holder images while the real picture is loading.


10. Events section has a two tab design for easier navigation which will be designed further in next version.

11. Albums now load higher quality thumbnails.

12. Icons have been refined.

13. New loading indicator. We are still collecting feedback and will change this if required.

14. fMobi will auto refresh after you have Liked or commented on a story.

15. New Nokia Belle style dialog boxes.

16. Message indicator is now cleared when you have read your message.

17. Message input doesn’t lose your last word anymore.

18. You can now add unlimited number of top friends, pages etc.

These were the major changes in fMobi 2.5. We have made many interaction and interface changes which you won’t even notice are there but you will definitely feel it when you find your experience much faster than before.

The next version of fMobi will be little late. We have planned to optimize the app and reduce resource usage further. fMobi is already fast but we are going to make it faster and better in the next version.

    Homescreen Widget is coming soon, it is under construction. Here is the proposed design http://twitpic.com/7xpg1l

    Nokia N9 version is already in Nokia Store under QA and should be available any day.

    Contact profile picture syncing is planned but not in the near future. It will be late as we have other important bugs to fix and features to give.

    • Luigi Monaco

      Finally!!!

      But if is possibile I prefer a multiline widget Just one line is so poor for a facebook widget 
      like this

        That depends on how much flexibility widget SDK gives us. The kind of Widget you have given might be possible on Belle but not Symbian Anna/Symbian^1 so we need to find a mid ground.

        Nokia don’t allow multiline widgets for 3rd party developers.

    hey master, have you ever consider the idea to make a TWITTER client??? i know there is GRAVITY, but its only for SYMBIAN and its not in QT so Meego users get out of reach, it would be nice if you develop a client, your fMobi app has been very adulated

    1. Need share button/link to share other people’s photo,stories,etc (only available for videos as of now)2. Previous loading indicator was simple/sleek n clean. This one looks like a big block on the screen, not good.
    3. Need copy/paste function in text boxes
    4. Need tagging friends in status messages
    That’s all as of now…

      Double click or long press in the text box to get text functions.

    Use  more small fonts for the chat!!!
    the font of the chat is bigger!

  • giacomo uncino

    this software is really superb! because you asked for feedback about the loading indicator i say: was better before, when it was exactly the same of symbian belle ui (cleaner, simple and, first of all, guaranteed the “family feeling” of the os)
    the last thing this software misses is only the home screen widget (may be with the ability to choose between big and small sizes) and a little general speed up…

    really good work, keep it up!!!!

      I asked from Nokia and big sized widgets aren’t available to 3rd party developers.

    v2.5 is great, thanks! A few remarks, though:

    1. Loading indicator was better before (simpler)
    2. There is no way to reply to messages where there are more than one participant, at least I don’t see a way to do that.

    Great app for S60V5 and others nokia symbian

  • Ash

    Great app, one comment is if I change password on web then u can’t use this you have uninstall and then reinstall would be good ifit had account settings.

    • Anonymous

      There is the logout option in settings for those cases. No need to uninstall and reinstall.

  • Unknow

    Great app (finally for Nokia)!!! But I want the *.sis file download on my PC without NokiaStore.

  • http://www.facebook.com/rucisaimir Saimir Ruçi

    Suggest:
    1. Remove black transparent background on Reload old version without black background is better. (I think this is important)
    2. Message notification is better with number, remove star symbol.
    3. “Back” button in background need to change in “Hide app button”  like “ovi store belle version” button from ‘back’ change to ‘exit’.
    4. We can’t replay msg a person which is not our friend. (I think in Message options need more work, it work like a offline chat not a real replay)
    5. Same important suggest are in photos.

    (Hope to see this change in other update of fMobi)

    Any replay for my suggest is welcome. (Sorry for my language)

    Fmobi sucks.  It works like crap.  Might as well use Facebook touch through browser.  At least I can see the feed correctly.  So much shit is missing from the Fmobi feed.  The back button works like shit too.
