All you need is a valid email address. You get a mail to verify that you want the application. After confirmation you get another mail with the signed application link :). Therefore:
1 link (as given above)
2 mails incomming.
2 Link click in email (one confirmation ... one download)
and you are all set.
For advanced users:
Here is a link to offline self signing your symbian apps and how it works : http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.php/How_to_sign_a_.Sis_file_with_Self-Sign_Certificate
A bit of history:
I have been using a brand new nokia 5800 for about two weeks now. No Regrets! It is an awesome phone. Its accelerometer really got me thinking about cool programs like the ones I play on my mom's iPhone. Tried programming with PyS60. Really cool. Loved the audio.say api.
Here is a cool short code that saves a screenshot to e: (your memory card)
import graphicsAnd another one that says what ever you want:
#Take the screenshot
img = graphics.screenshot()
#Save it to the specified path
audio.say("Cool isn't it")
Both are complete python programs (needless to say... but mentioned for the un initiated).
And by using the bluetooth console (using my pc) I could freak out people in the room :).
But then I felt an urge that I had the first time I made a useful program.
Back in first semester while studying C++ i discovered a cool windows function that allowed me to send anonymous net send messages NetMessageNameAdd . It was nothing extraordinary but it facinated me. Because I could use my MFC skills to make an application that would actually do something that didn't come by default with windows. I wrote a complete multi destination/Multisource/cool gui application staying up all night :).
After looking around a bit at carbide c++ I can only wonder what information the symbian phone can give to a programmer that is not given away by any default application. Specifically I am interested in GSM parameters etc. lets see :)
