Well, I add this post into the Retrocomputing category as most of people thing that the 3G is totally obsolete and useless phone.
In my opinion it is still more useful that it has in the time of its release (2009) and there are some useful applications for it. I got it for playing and without real plans to use it. But it happened that now it is the only working phone that I have and thus it is my main phone (I hope I will be able to find something more open one day – I’m still mot sure that the BQ Aquarius Ubuntu phone is exactly that I want).
Finally I have decided to install few applications that can possibly extend the usability of the phone. Many of apps require newer iPhones so the number of useable ones is not so high. Also, most of the apps is outdated so only security-unrelated stuff can be interesting.
Some of tool unfornunately don’t work (Evernote, iGopher). But some do:
- WordPress (but I’m not sure about security here – it’s a old version)
- Free RSS reader
- DJVu viewer
- Alois Nebel Czech cartoon
Actually, I sometimes use only the RSS reader…
