You got your new Nokia N8 with you now,and want to try more apps on it ? ,here is a small list of free apps ,that runs smoothly in your Nokia N8 (and supports S60 V5 devices also ). Keep in touch ,we are building a huge list of tested apps for Nokia N8 and you will have the feast soon here.
1) Nokia Notifications
Nokia Notifications is one of my favourites applications from Nokia Beta Labs,now it is available via the OVI Store as graduated from beta stage.It is a home screen widgets for missed event notifications .
Nokia Notifications gathers missed calls, voicemails, messages, and missed calendar alarms and presents them in one list for you to manage at your convenience. Installed as a widget in your device’s home screen, Nokia Notifications removes the need to acknowledge individual notifications that may otherwise get in the way of doing other actions on your device.
Nokia Notifications is a very light weight widget runs use very little of resources ,I use it in my N97 for long and did not find any issues. Visit OVI Store(http://store.ovi.com/content/59108) here to download Notifications
Nokia Battery monitor tells you about your power consuming behaviour ,applications and remaining charging time . The current version of Nokia Battery Monitor works fine with most of the S60 V5 ,but still the remaining charging time is not displayed in N8 ,the feature will be available in the next version update Nokia says.
Nokia Battery monitor runs as widget ,and supports the home screen widget mode. You can have on the home screen on the devices that support home screen widget (N97,N8,C7..)and run as a standalone app in other devices like Nokia Xpress Music 5800
3) Opera Mobile 10.1
Opera Mobile Version 10.1 it is different from the most heard Opera Mini 5.2 . Since Nokia N8 have sufficient memory to run memory consuming applications ,you can get the full use of the Opera Mobile Browser. Opera Mobile Browser Ver 10.1 is offering a full desktop browser experience same time reduces the data charges as it use a compression technology via their own servers .Have an exciting web browsing experience in you N8 using opera mobile. Devices like N97 struggles to use web sites in Opera Mobile as the memory size is low there ,Opera Mini is a life saver for such devices .
Just go to http://m.opera.com in your default mobile browser to download Opera Mobile or Opera Mini (choose from the on screen options )
Nimbuzz is the best IM client I ever used ,work fine in N8 . You can add all of your social chats together in Nimbuzz (Yahoo ,MSN,Facebook,Twitter and more). Nimbuzz offers you VOIP calls ,so that you can take overseas calls for free and lower rates. Nimbuzz the multi IM client has updated to the new version 3.0.

5)MazeLock for your N8 (removed since there are some compatibility issues with S^3 devices-error free version will be available soon )
SMS Preview is a very useful application from my N97 times . Whenever you get a sms you will get a pop up message preview on your screen ,and have the option to hide it ,or go further to read the message .In order to activate the application you need a working data connection (only for activation )and your phone will send one sms to the developers as the part of registration process .
