Get Moodagent to win an N8!

Have you heard? Moodagent, formerly known as PlaylistDJ, is a cool app that matches your music collection to mood profile. With five sliders representing different “mood”, user can listen to music based on their mood by adjusting the “moodometer”. What’s more? You can lock a song and create playlist of songs with similar mood profile. Moodagent is social too, you can now share your playlist on Facebook and Twitter within the app itself!

To get you excited, get Moodagent from Ovi Store and share your Moodagent-generated playlist on Facebook to stand a chance to win an N8! Details on Ovi Blog. Oh, there are 10 free tracks to be downloaded from Ovi Music as well courtesy of Moodagent of course!

But please do note that if you are a Ovi Music Unlimited subscriber, all DRM-protected music will not be detected by Moodagent, hence no mood profile will be matched and no playlist will be generated! It is a big boo-boo, I know! I am one of the victim too. Hopefully, it will be improved to be more inclusive to us the local OMU subscribers.

Santa Ovi Act 3 & 4: Facebook contests

How was your Christmas? It certainly kept me busy over the holidays! Now, my post might seems overdue but hey, it is still worth recapping the generous touches by Santa Ovi!

On the 10 days before Christmas, we seen two contests were launched on Facebook by Ovi by Nokia fan page. “Santa” features Santa Clause being ovi-fied with Nokia N8 and Ovi Maps to find his way around the globe. Man, he sure knows how to travel. Each day, users are asked to guess where has Santa gone to based on a snapshot of Santa taken at iconic location of the city (purportedly using an N8?). A lil hint will be given to help you solve Santa’s latest location.

There is also a route map that shows where have Santa been to since day 1 of the contest. Correctly guessing it will qualify you a chance to win 2x N8!

Running concurrently, Guess Where is another prize laden contest brought to you by Ovi Store as it promotes the latest EA mobile games that were on sale during the Christmas season. And guess what, the prize up for grabs include Nokia X6, N8 and a PS3! A snapshot of the game which is on sale is shown and all you need is to guess where is the missing piece in the snapshot. Got it right and you win!

So, have you been good this entire year? If not, just try your luck here for some Santa Ovi love! ha ha!

An Ovi-fied Holiday for My Family and Friends with N8

This holiday season is perfect for family get-together and partying with friends. It would be awesome with some help from Ovi and marvellous N8.

For the family outing, I will be driving to Tioman Island with the help of free Ovi Maps navigation on N8. With a 12MP snapper and HD video recording, the happy moments of our Christmas in the Tropics getaway can be captured and shared on Ovi Share immediately. My friends will be thrilled to see our new pet dog, Fluffy chasing ball non-stop on white sandy beach.

While away, I am still able to send party invitation to my friends via easy-to-use Nokia Messaging to access my Ovi Mail. The Facebook client also allows me to check R.S.V.P. status of my year-end party event.

During the party, using the N8’s FM transmitter, festive music downloaded from Ovi Music Unlimited will be streamed to my sound system to set the party mood right. The highlight would be the Angry Birds challenge hooked up from N8 to HDTV for my friends to enjoy.

Thanks to N8 and Ovi services, computer is optional this holiday season to stay connected.
