“Nokia Bots is a collection of add-ons that autonomously learn your personal preferences, and improve user experience with new, customized features and tricks. These add-ons, or Bots, observe how the phone is being used and automatically configure and activate themselves, if customization seems relevant.”
The Bots run on Homescreen and catch your daily routines and configure automatically and activate itself.
At the moment, Nokia Bots include four handy add-ons:
- Profile Bot helps you by automating profile changes during meetings.
- Alarm Bot learns at what time you usually wake up, and suggests alarms and profile changes nightly.
- Shortcut Bot provides quick access to your most frequently used applications. Your preferences are learned in the background, and shortcuts automatically updated.
- Battery Bot lets you know if your battery needs to be charged in the evening before you go to sleep.
The Bots ‘live’ within a single homescreen widget, where their status, messages and suggestions are presented to you. Currently, four Bots are included:
Do you ever forget to silence the phone for meetings? Or when the meeting ends, forget to switch back to normal profile, and miss calls? Profile Bot is here to help. Profile changes are suggested on your homescreen: confirm automated profile changes for each meeting with a single click, or let them be fully automated for you.
Setting up a wake-up alarm and silent profile for night time has never been easier! Alarm Bot learns at what time you use to wake up, and suggests alarms and profile changes on your homescreen nightly. Create a new alarm and automate night profile with a single click, and never again forget phone to silent profile in the morning.
New apps from Ovi store make the phone more useful and fun. With the help of Shortcut Bot, you get quick access to your most frequently used apps straight from your homescreen without configuration hassles: your preferences are learned in the background, and shortcuts automatically updated.
Battery Bot observes your battery status. In case the battery is likely to drain while you sleep, it reminds you in advance to connect the charger. Otherwise you might wake up too early because of “battery low” alerts, or too late if it drains before wake-up alarm.
Nokia Bots is currently available for N97 and N97 mini.
