Musical apps could encourage people to sell an old mobile

26 March 2010 — 4:00 PM

Apps are proving popular with consumers.

Musicians may find that a new app available through Nokia's Ovi Store is of use to them.

Guitar players could find that Tunerific prevents them needing to carry a separate tuner and Nokia's Conversations blog suggests that by plucking a string and holding their phone close to the instrument, people can find out whether it is flat, sharp or just right.

Those who already have an ear for music could also find use for the app as it offers Tone Tuner, which will play a note that the user can then try and match with their guitar.

Consumers that like the sound of the application could wish to sell an old mobile phone for cash to put towards an upgrade.

Dave Clarke, online marketing manager at Envirofone, says: "There are apps for everyone these days - many are just for fun but there are some that have proven to be really useful. Recycling your old mobile phone is a great way to raise the cash to buy an app-compatible handset."

A huge range of applications are available from Nokia's Ovi Store which is usable across a range of the mobile manufacturer's handsets.

Those that would like to use apps but would rather not purchase a Nokia device could opt for the Apple iPhone, which is available on O2, Orange, Tesco Mobile and Vodafone.
