Initial CloudGPS port to Harmattan
Damian Waradzyn has released an initial version of CloudGPS for Harmattan phones. N900 users may remember CloudGPS for its incredibly smooth scrolling and loading, but as the annoucement post notes this version has some missing functionality: Thanks to javispedro's SDL port for harmattan CloudGPS can be run on N950 right now. This port is limited in functionality, things like GPS, accelerometer and digital compass are not supported yet. Lucky N950 and N9 device holders will need to first grab Javier S. Pedro's SDL package from his repository, then grab the CloudGPs .deb from the forum thread.

Ghosts Overboard accelerometer game for Harmattan
Heli Hyvättinen's new game Ghosts Overboard is something of a blend between Snake and Pacman. Implemented in QML, the game is set when: a group of ghosts was sailing with their ghost ship when a storm hit them. The ghosts fell overboard and were scattered across the nearby waters. It is now your task to rescue them. The ghost ship is controlled by tilting the device. Pick up the ghosts and avoid the rocks and octopuses. If the ship hits a rock or an octopus, all ghosts in it will fall overboard again. The game is currently only available a .deb from the MeeGo Coding Competition site.

Music Shelf for MeeGo and Harmattan
Martin Grimme is one of the first developers with a media-orientation application out of the gate, once again, on Harmattan. You may remember his work on the FM Radio Player for the N900, which provided community-sourced support for the device's included (but unsupported) FM tuner. His new application, Music Shelf, aims: to be simple, easy, and good-looking. It is the proud winner of the 1st WeTab Qt App Challenge in category Entertainment with 67% of votes. Now that the challenge is won, I'm working to target other MeeGo platforms besides the WeTab as well. Thanks to QML and Qt, this is not really a big issue. N900 Community Edition, WeTab and N950/N9 users should take a look.
Andrew Olmsted released his first public Harmattan application "Lexicon" (formerly Personal Lexicon in its straight-Qt incarnation). Lexicon is a word look-up program for validating the existence of words in specific word lists. It is first my Harmattan application and also my first QML application. It is useful for checking legal words for games like Scrabble. While fairly complete, more fixes and features are already in the works. Harmattan testers can find it in Andrew's Community OBS repository.
