Symella is a Gnutella file-sharing client for Symbian smartphones. Currently, it is available for mobile devices based on the S60 Platform 2nd, 3rd and 5th edition.

Symella supports multi-threaded downloads which means that if multiple users have a particular file then Symella can download the file from several locations simultenously.

Symella is free (and open source) software, distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License. We highly appreciate any help. If you like this software and want to support the development of Symella by making a donation, you can do so via PayPal.

I have rebuilt Symella with a new certificate, which should be valid for 10 years from now. The list of default GWebCaches has also been updated, and dynamic screen layout changes should work from now (rotating the screen won't mess up the UI).

I have tested the app on S60 5th edition (Nokia N97), and it seemed to work fine. However, please note that we do not have time to work on Symella any more. The only thing I can promise is little patches like this one in the future if I still see the demand (post your thoughts on the forum or send mails).

The certificate used by the previous version of Symella has been expired, so I have rebuilt version 1.40 with a new certificate, which means that you can keep installing it to your phone(s) for another year. What is more that I have also updated the webcache list coming with Symella, which will hopefully get you connected to the network in little time. Unfortunately we have had no chance to work on Symella lately (there is so much else to do), and this is not likely to change in the near future. So enjoy using Symella 1.40. It might not be a flawless application, but it works.

Symella 1.40 is released. I've added the long awaited "default network connection setting", hopefully it will solve the popping up access point dialog issue. The webcache support has also been improved. Symella queries the caches for addresses of other webcaches and you can edit the list of webcache addresses manually through the settings as well. Please don't forget to share your opinion about the new release in our forum.

Symella 1.32 for S60 platform 3rd and 2nd edition has been released! I've added a "find box" to the search results list (it can be used to filter the search results based on a given word) plus made some fixes to the UI.
