Nokia Ovi application 'simple and versatile'

The app is available from Nokia's Ovi store

A new application that may tempt those selling used phones to buy a Nokia handset has been put to the test.

In an article for a specialist website that looks at the Finnish manufacturer's latest devices and provides news, reviews and discussion about the brand, the eyeCall option was reviewed.

Nokia Conversations explained the Ovi Store application was available for £3 and combines gesture control with SMS messaging to create a solution which may be of use to those with busy schedules.

When installed, calls can be cancelled with a wave of the hand and then covering the phone for a couple of seconds triggers an automatic text that is sent to the person who called to let them know you are unavailable.

Using a Nokia N97, the publication said eyeCall was simple to use and versatile enough to allow the gestures and SMS settings to be changed.

Nokia Conversations issued a poll this week asking readers to vote for their most essential feature on a music-focussed mobile.
