hike messenger

hike
Hike is an instant messaging and social media app that launched in 2012 and claims to have over 35 million users. It lets you message your friends and share images, music, videos and graphical stickers. It also lets you send free SMS to friends who aren't hike users. The free SMS function current only works for sending to phones in India, where hike is based.

This version of hike officially supports the following Nokia S40 phones: Asha 201, Asha 205, Asha 206, Asha 210, Asha 300, Asha 301, Asha 302, Asha 303,  C3-00, C3-01, X2-01 and X3-02. It may work on other Nokia S40 phones and some Sony Ericsson phones.  It's unlikely to work on other brands because it uses Nokia proprietary Java packages that aren't available except on Nokia and Sony Ericsson phones. The jad link at the bottom of the page is a signed version that should work on all the supported phones. If you get a error on an unsupported phone try using this unsigned jad. You can also try downloading the app directly from hike.

If you do manage to get hike working on an unsupported phone please leave a comment telling me which phone it works on and whether you used the signed or unsigned version so I can update the post.

MTextReader

MTextReader
A BoostApps reader submitted this full featured text file viewer that also works as an eBook Reader using plain text eBooks available from Gutenberg.org and other sources.It features two font sizes, configurable keys, a choice of foreground and background colors and auto scroll.

To use this app you need to way to  copy or save files to the phone. This usually requires a phone with a memory card, as most non-smartphones don't allow users or apps to modify internal memory.

The easiest way to get text files onto the phone is by using a PC to create or download files and a cable or memory card reader to copy the files from the PC to the phone's memory card. You can also use a web browser like UC Browser that allows you to download text files directly to the phone's SD card.

LINE
Boostapps reader Jayanta Roy shared this Java version on the LINE IM app.

It was created by LINE for Nokia and uses propritary Nokia Java APIs so it will probably only work on Nokia phones. Officially, LINE only supports the Nokia 206, 301, C3-00, C3-01, X2-00, X2-01, X3-02 and the Nokia Asha 201, 205, 210, 300, 302, 303, 305 , 306, 308, 309, 310 and 311 but Jayanta says it works on his Nokia 112.

YouTube Video Downloader
This app lets you search for and download videos from YouTube  and store them on your phone for off-line viewing. It's not a video player, use your phone's file manager to navigate to the downloaded video, clicking on the downloaded file should open it in the phone's media player.

You can chose where to download the video (either the memory card or the video folder should work on most phones) and what format to download the video in. Most phones can handle MP4 (H.264 360p) but if that doesn't play trying the lowest quality option 3GP (MPEG-4 144p)

If that doesn't work try the un-signed version below:

Facebook 3.4.1 Signed
Warning: The best way to install the Facebook app is from the official Facebook download page at https://d.facebook.com/install using your phone browser. There are many Facebook versions and by installing from the Facebook site with the phone browser, Facebook will give you what it thinks is the best version for your phone.

However if Facebook doesn't recognize you phone as one it supports then it won't let you download the Facebook app at all. In many cases the Facebook app will work on phones that Facebook doesn't officially support. You can find the newest Facebook app version here at Boostapps.com and we will let anyone download it to any phone or to a PC.

Here's the latest signed version of the Facebook Java app. Signed means that the jad file contains a cryptographic signature that phones can use to verify that the app that the app was created by Facebook and that it hasn't been modified since it was signed.

If you get a lot of popups when running Facebook asking you to allow it to use the internet or the file system, running a signed app will give you an "Always allow" option that will make those annoying pop-ups go away. Also if Facebook won't run on your phone because it's "untrusted" or "un-signed" you need the signed version.

Not all phones support apps signed with the Verisign certificate that Facebook uses. If you get an error installing the signed version try the latest un-signed version here. If that doesn't work you are probably out of luck but if you are desperate to get a Facebook app, click here for older versions of the official FaceBook app as well as 3rd part FaceBook Messenger apps.

  • Fixed the problem of large file sizes not being shown correctly when downloading;
