Plazer for Series 60 Screen Shots

My friends at Plazes were kind enough to send along an alpha version of the Plazer for Series 60 devices so that I could try it out on my new Nokia N70. Here’s what it looks like:

The application installs under “My Own” under the main menu, where all new apps end up.

The slash screen with the app starts.

The app asks to connect to the Internet when it starts.

The application menu. Nice and simple.

When you first hit a new cell, you identify its general location; from that point on, the app knows your general location when using that cell.

…and can tell you who’s nearby.

You can get specific by selecting the “Set Plaze” option, which shows you a list of current Plazes in your general area.

Once you set your current Plaze, that’s what shows up on the Plazes website.

And, as you would expect, you can find out where your Plazes “buddies” are.

 

I was impressed with how little data actually had to be sent over the air to do all this: all of the above happened in 11KB of back and forth, and cost me 57 cents with my [expensive] “Pay As You Go” Rogers Wireless account.
