    New App: Snaptu

    Java-enabled phones: Hate the interface on your phone when it comes to wrangling social sites like Facebook and Twitter? Wish the layout gave the info you wanted like movie times and weather? Snaptu is a java-based phone interface that does.

    If you can run java applications on your phone you can run Snaptu. The application provides an iPhone-esque tiled interface with a variety of tools like a Facebook client, a weather checker, and an interface for Google calendar among over a dozen other tools.

    The Snaptu interface is easy to navigate whether you're using a touch screen or directional pad—all of the menus are numbered and keypad friendly. Before downloading you can check out the catalog of applications on the Snaptu site and see what the interface and menus for various tools look like.

    You can download it here: Snaptu - A Different Mobile Web
    And it's free

    Interface on the Storm is excellent, There is access to all the news channel, Facebook, movie listings, Accuweather, Picasa, Twitter.

    Snaptu: Many Social and Information Apps in One

    Does the user interface on Java enabled mobile applications make you feel like pulling your hair out? Do you wish the layout gave you more of the pertinent information you are looking for? If you answered yes to these questions then my friends Snaptu is the solution for you!

    Snaptu is a Java enabled application with a Facebook client, a weather checker, an interface for Google calendar, and many more tools. Snaptu provides an iPhone like tiled interface and is easy to navigate regardless of the type of Berry you have. Not sure of what Snaptu features you would take advantage of? Then browse the catalog of applications on the Snaptu site before you download. You can also see what the interface and menus for the different tools look like.

    Snaptu is a free download and the only requirement is a mobile phone with Java capabilities. This application seems really interesting and it could be of great value. Snaptu seems like one of those apps that combines features of many applications into one. The benefit of that is that the user only needs one application on their device to do the job of many, thus saving precious device memory for other things. Snaptu is a really nice application that can have great purpose and many different uses.

    For more information on Snaptu or to download the application click here.

    Seems pretty cool. The Facebook client is similar to Social Scope except you can view your messages. Will tell more as I use it more.

    I tried this out a long time ago when I still had my storm and I found the touch interface horrid to use. And there was no setting to update twitter automatically you had to do it manually every time. As well as most of the apps were UK based. Has this changed on this version?
