Nokia Collection for Windows Phone
When Nokia entered the Windows Phone market, one of their strategies to attract customers was to provide exclusive apps and games for their Lumia Windows Phones. While other Windows Phone manufacturers offer similar collections of apps, the Nokia Collection is by far the largest offering.
From Xbox Live game titles to camera apps to utilities to news apps, the Nokia Collection adds to the attraction the Lumia Windows Phones have.
As of December 2012, Nokia has over 50 exclusive apps and games available to those with Lumia phones.
Nokia Storyteller was removed from the Windows Phone Store after the most recent update caused issues for consumers. The Nokia app allows consumers to sort through their galleries and categorise photos into easy-to-navigate albums. An interesting twist to the story was only low-end hardware were unaffected by the issues, leaving those with more powerful smartphones in the dark with no working app.
The manufacturer has since published the app on the Nokia Collection with a new release, not only that but we have a minor update for Nokia Camera too.
It's time to hop into the hot seat and fire up the engines as Hot Rod Racers from Miniclip speeds onto Windows Phone. The highly popular game has only been available on iOS and Android for a week and already Miniclip has released the Windows Phone counterpart (for Nokia Lumia hardware that is). This is a positive sign of things to come. If you're ready to commence drag racing, shift past the break for more details and store links.
We like app updates. They take apps that we like and make them better. You’ll get more features, improvements on existing features and bug fixes. That’s typically what happens when you head to the Windows Phone Store to update an app. Which is why it’s a little odd that the Nokia edition of the Weather Channel just lost some functionality in its latest update. Details below.
Nokia is currently pushing out the highly anticipated Lumia Black update to Lumia 1020 and Lumia 925 owners in multiple markets (we're receiving tips left, right and centre from you guys – other Lumia Windows Phones will follow). But did you also know that once updated you'll be able to take full advantage of both Nokia Beamer and StoryTeller?
These two apps were previously only available on the Lumia 1520, which runs Nokia's Black update. Rocking Lumia Black on your Lumia 925 or 1020? Head on past the break for more details, QR codes and download links for these two great apps.
If you have a PureView Windows Phone (Lumia 920, Lumia 1020, Lumia 1520, etc.), chances are you've been enjoying the Nokia Camera app. But folk who own a Lumia Windows Phone that does not sport PureView camera technology have not been able to enjoy the same experience. That is until now.
Nokia previously stated at its conference in Abu Dhabi that all Lumia Windows Phones would soon be able to be loaded with Nokia Camera, not just handsets in the 92x series or higher. The company has today released a beta version of its popular camera app that includes support for more hardware. The only requirement is either the Nokia Amber or Nokia Black firmware update (according to Nokia's website).
Nokia has released an update for its Network+ system app on Lumia Windows Phones. If you're not familiar with what Network+ brings in terms of functionality, the app deals with some cell network settings and is considered pretty important. We've today received a bunch of tips surrounding a 18.104.22.168 release.
One app that was missing support on the 1080P Lumia 1520 was Nokia’s DLNA-enabled Play To. The app was ‘not available’ to download, presumably due to no display resolution support. Now, Nokia is remedying that by releasing Play To version 3.0 beta.
We just installed the app on our Lumia 1520 and connected it to our Xbox One for a fantastic streaming experience. Photos, video and music were able to show up on our 55-inch TV right from our Lumia phone with ease. Compared to earlier experiences, streaming content was much faster and efficient. We’re not sure if that’s the new Snapdragon 800 processor or the improved Xbox One, but we like the results.
Nokia Share has hit the Windows Phone Store shelves that will allow you to connect your Lumia Windows Phone with your Lumia Windows Tablet and share photos via Nokia’s Storyteller app.
Just run Storyteller on your Lumia 2520 Tablet and open Nokia Share on your Lumia Windows Phone. The two connect over Wi-Fi and you will then be able to share your photos on the larger screen of the Lumia 2520.
If you’re a Nokia Lumia owner, today is your day. Especially if you just bought a new device. It’s been known that if you bought a Lumia 1520 from AT&T, you also nabbed a $20 Microsoft Store card. If you pre-ordered thru the Microsoft Store, well you probably don’t even have your Lumia 1520 yet, but you did get a $70 voucher. So what to spend it on?
Nokia’s exclusive Xbox Live collection is pretty impressive and evidently, they want you to have it. That’s why they slashed prices on numerous titles and will be putting other titles on sale later in the month. So what are you getting?
