Hermes –soon an app for the Nokia N900
Do you remember when you opened a new email account and you needed all your existing contacts on it? Annoying it was. But you can get this trouble solved by some kind of sync. Then something like that happened when updating to your phone contacts. Once again a waste of time. Imagine now when you receive your Nokia N900 and you want to sync all your contacts to bluff about your new N900. But I’m not only talking about the phone contacts, also about your Face Book, Google Talk, Gmail, MSN, Twitter, Skype, etc. In my opinion, this is an important issue and future need of the N900 users that I hope some developer would face to solve somehow.
Andrew Flegg who is developing the Hermes application, got ahead of this need, and created Hermes. Hermes is an application that simples sync the info of your Face Book and Twitter’s Contact with your N900’s contacts. Only some info like birthday, photo, etc. because due to the Face book privacy politics, they can´t send you personal info such as phone number or email.
The app is promising so let´s wait to see the official release. Finally, I want to highlight again that this is an important situation to be solve, and the one who can came up with a really practical and complete solution app would be adored and the app would be on every N900. Hermes has pointed in the direction.
