iNoki is an iPhone app for migrating Nokia PC Suite backup .NBU file to Apple iPhone.


It is the iPhone version of the Noki application which is an explorer for Nokia backup files for Microsoft Windows. The app is targeted as a utility to migrated or import your Nokia phone data to iPhone. The supported data categories are: contacts, SMS, calendar, photo, audio and video files.

Contacts, calendar, photo, audio and video can all be imported to iPhone's native app. SMS is only viewable due to the lack of importing API for SMS in current iOS SDK.

How it works[edit]

iNoki data importing process is based on the parsing of Nokia PC Suite backup file which is in .NBU format. The parsing result will be converted and imported to iPhone native app via API in iOS SDK.

Contacts are in vCard format (.vcf) and can be imported to iPhone Addressbook app.

Calendars are in vCalendar format and can be imported to iPhone Calendar app.

SMS is in vMessage format(.vmg). All Nokia propriety SMS formats are converted into vMessage format. SMS can not be imported due to the lack of official API in current iOS SDK. They can be view only in iNoki.

Audio and video files are kept their original format. iNoki can inform other apps to play the media file when they are installed.
