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.
Creative Studio is a very nice photo editing app exclusive to the Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 devices. Creative Studio was updated today to version 5.0 and adds four new editing tools to the mix.
You have two new features to blur images, Focus Object and Radial/Tilt Shift. These features allow you to select areas of your photos to keep in focus and the areas you want to blur.
Nokia has updated their filter list on #2InstaWithLove app with the "Pureview" filter. Likely in honor of all the news coming out of London.
The app, exclusive to the Lumia Windows Phone lineup, allows you to take photos, apply one of a handful of creative filters and then automatically adds the hashtag #2InstaWithLove to the photo, for sharing on your favorite social network.
As fans eagerly await for the Warner Bros. film, Man of Steel to be released, they're now able to download the official app for Windows Phone. Nokia has struck yet another exclusive deal and Man of Steel is currently available on Lumia hardware only. So what's the app all about and should you be interested?
Zinio is a popular digital newsstand service and a Windows Phone 8 app has been in the works. A few days ago, Zinio snuck in under the radar as an exclusive for the Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 devices.
Zinio connects you to stories on current events, politics, technology, style and more. Plus it gives you an app to file under the "Z" alpha-tab.
It’s a bright and cheery Monday, at least here in New York, and what would a day going by without some Nokia updates be? Boring, is the answer. Luckily we have two so far, albeit minor ones that should make sure your Lumia is performing in tip top shape.
Nokia has pushed out a number of updates for Windows Phone. The apps affected are Nokia Music, Access Point and Network+. Unfortunately we don't have a change log for any of the three apps, but we imagine each release contains minor improvements. It's been a while since we've looked at both Access Point and Network+, but the Nokia Music+ service has been rolling out in multiple markets.
The Nokia ESPN Hub app, available exclusively in the Nokia Collection, has been updated to version 2.6.67. The latest release introduces a number of improvements that will help users further customise the experience, as well as being notified on news and scores.
Ah, Chillingo. Where would Lumia owning gamers be without you? Just a couple of weeks ago, the indie-focused arm of Electronic Arts published a pair of new Nokia exclusive Xbox games: Dream Track Nation and Tiny Plane. Those ports are a little rough, but the developer PowPowGames already has patches on the way. Besides, more Xbox games is always a good thing, especially after that drought we suffered at the beginning of the year.
Now Chillingo is back with two new Nokia exclusives for Windows Phone 7 and 8, each coming from a different developer. First up is the creatively named Storm in a Teacup from Cobra (makers of iBomber Defense), followed by Vampire Rush from Lithuanian developer A-Steroids. One game will be a hit, while the other seriously needs some work. Make your guesses about which is which and then head past the break to find out the answer!
The popular Tunein Radio app for Windows Phone 8 has been updated (or so it seems) with some minor alterations. It's a strange release, as the version number reported on the store listing is 2.2, but the app is reporting 2.3. If you're up on your Tunein Radio knowledge, you'll know that we covered the version 2.3 update back in December. So what's new in this "latest" build? Well it's not good news if you're a Windows Phone 8 owner.
