Nokia Bots…..Very Cool

Nokia Beta Labs have just posted the following:

Nokia Bots is a collection of add-ons that autonomously learn your personal preferences, and improve user experience with new, customized features and tricks.  These add-ons, or Bots, observe how the phone is being used and automatically configure and activate themselves, if customization seems relevant.

The Bots ‘live’ within a single homescreen widget, where their status, messages and suggestions are presented to you. Currently, four Bots are included:

Profile Bot Profile Bot
Do you ever forget to silence the phone for meetings? Or when the meeting ends, forget to switch back to normal profile, and miss calls? Profile Bot is here to help. Profile changes are suggested on your homescreen: confirm automated profile changes for each meeting with a single click, or let them be fully automated for you.

Alarm Bot Alarm Bot
Setting up a wake-up alarm and silent profile for night time has never been easier! Alarm Bot learns at what time you use to wake up, and suggests alarms and profile changes on your homescreen nightly. Create a new alarm and automate night profile with a single click, and never again forget phone to silent profile in the morning.

Shortcut Bot  Shortcut Bot
New apps from Ovi store make the phone more useful and fun. With the help of Shortcut Bot, you get quick access to your most frequently used apps straight from your homescreen without configuration hassles: your preferences are learned in the background, and shortcuts automatically updated.

Battery BotBattery Bot
Battery Bot observes your battery status. In case the battery is likely to drain while you sleep, it reminds you in advance to connect the charger. Otherwise you might wake up too early because of “battery low” alerts, or too late if it drains before wake-up alarm.

Compatibility and system requirements

  • Compatible with Nokia N97 and Nokia N97 Mini.  Download it now
  • Not compatible with S60 3rd Edition devices.

I’ve just installed and it looks like a great little application! Please note you won’t find a shortcut for the Bots app so to access it you need to add the relevant widgets (The Bots widget and the Bots Shortcut widget)
