Gmail Mobile, Opera Mini, Google Maps, Calculator and eBuddy Mobile Messenger are some Java applications for mobile phones. While all of these applications are free to download, some require a data plan to access wireless internet.
Opera Mini is a mobile browser that helps users browse the web in comfort and with high speeds on their phones. Opera Mini features an address bar and a built-in search bar that assist in navigation. Users can choose to either view the whole web page on-screen or simply zoom to a particular point. Providing the user with a simple interface, it also has a tab-based interface that allows users to load multiple pages at once.
Gmail Mobile provides a mail client that is similar to the PC version. Users can send and receive messages, search for emails, organize emails and even view their Google Hangouts chat history. Google Maps provides maps, driving directions and satellite views, so users don’t get lost on their travels. It also features an address search with location determination and a built-in route planner.
EBuddy Mobile Messenger provides instant messaging services to users. It incorporates all IM accounts into one, allowing users to view friends who are online and chat with them. It supports MSN, Yahoo and Google Talk, among others. The Calculator app functions like a real scientific calculator, allowing users to solve trigonometry and statistical problems, reciprocals and square roots among other functions.
