The interface is so smooth and uses the S60 PIPS library (the same libraries used by the quake port to S60) . The menus and navigation are like any typical s60 menu and thus need no getting used to. There even is a version which uses the N95's inbuilt accelerometer and the screen goes to landscape mode when you tilt the phone.
The volume control keys at the side work too...and it allows you to play the video even at the point where 75% buffering is complete . You can also directly download a video to your phone and view it at a later time.
There is an integrated search feature where you can search for videos just as you would do in youtube. You can also browse the most watched and recently added categories etc.
In all this is the killer app so many users were waiting for. Thank you Sebastian Jedruszkiewicz for giving us this wonderful app.

The Nokia Activity Monitor displays charts and statistics, in real-time, about your movements while walking or running. It counts the number of steps, and determines the distance covered and the energy expenditure. Summaries are stored in a diary so that you can compare your activity level on different days, and over longer periods of time. Your steps are detected by analysing the output from the accelerometer in an S60 smart phone. It is most accurate when you attach the phone to your belt, or upper arm, and it also works well if carry your phone in a pocket of your clothing. It might underestimate the number of steps if you keep the phone in a bag that you hold in your hand (as opposed to over your shoulder), and the most difficult case is when you hold the phone in your hand. Inevitably, false steps are detected sometimes, for example when you are cycling or driving.
The Activity Monitor currently runs on the N95 and the N95 8GB. You must have a memory card in your phone for the application to work. Be aware that the Activity Monitor's use of the accelerometer requires a fair amount of battery power. It does not shut down gracefully when the voltage drops, so keep an eye on the battery indicator during the day, and don't forget to stop the Activity Monitor before you go to bed!
