Tweakr – Additionally Settings For The N900

11 March 2010Entry by


Unlock” your phone to a few new cool settings. Tweakr has to be standard in every N900, it should be integrated into the OS. But for now it can be downloaded in the Maemo testing section and it will install itself to your phone settings as a new menu called extras. Scroll down after opening the phone settings to setup tweakr.

First there is the wonderful and long waited setting option to “clean” and trim your desktop. Finally you can arrange your shortcuts and bookmarks on your desktops with “Snap icons to grid”. Gosh, I waited for this app! I always tried to get my icons in a line with the stylus, and I think you know what I am talking about. Choose the grid dimension from small to huge and your desktops will look totally classified.


Edit desktop bookmarks” is another setting option, and as the name describes, it offers you to change the label of all desktop bookmarks in whatever you want.

The “Power key settings” enables functions to show the menu by short press, long press shuts down the phone and double locks the device. These are of course the default settings which you are able to change as you want.


At least you can set some “Profile presets”. Save the changes you made with tweakr, name it, and a new button will show up in the main menu (tap on the clock and battery icon).  Then you can choose your new profiles.

Fact is, tweakr really rocks, especially the grid function made this application a favorite.
