Nokia StoryTeller beta available in the Windows Phone Store, but you can't download it

Noia World Storyteller

Nokia announced a new photography-focused app called "StoryTeller" in Abu Dhabi last month. The new tool offers a way to organize image and video files on Lumia Windows Phones, according to the time or location they are taken. We knew the software will be released in the near future, but weren't entirely sure when. Now a beta version of StoryTeller is available on the Windows Phone Store.

The beta software, however, works only on select Lumia phones at the current stage, and it's highly likely (almost certain) you won't be able to download it. This is due to the app requiring Nokia Black (originally codenamed Bittersweet Shimmer), the firmware yet to be released accompanying Microsoft's Windows Phone GDR3 update.

That is to say, unless you are a lucky owner of Lumia 1520 or Lumia 1320, there's no story for you to tell. Here's our hands-on footage from Nokia World:

We certainly hope the availability of this app indicates Nokia Black will be released soon. As of today, a beta version of Nokia StoryTeller is already available for download in Windows Phone Store. You can find it by either hitting this link, or scanning the QR code below. Remember, folks, it requires Nokia Black.

Stevied1991 says:

I could use a new table for my dining room, this is great news.

densbucs says:

Is it too much trouble for you type the full word when??? I know its super long and can be tough to spell, but ....

Nik Rolls says:

The Store description says it needs Amber, not Black. More likely it's restricted some other way.

hrsyyln says:

It says: The software update FOR Amber, so they mean the Black update.

Nik Rolls says:

Read it again. It says the 'Lumia Amber software update'.

CJ Thunder says:

I like the idea of this but with raw or that digital film strip format taking up so much space it seems limited without being able to pull files from all networks, SkyDrive, Facebook, etc.

I really want path actually.

Eas195 says:

Path will be available on December, according to the Indonesian Windows Phone site: http://idwinphone.com

tgr42 says:

The first sentence of the app description says "Requires the Lumia Amber software update."  But it is indeed unavailable on an AT&T 1020.  So Nokia just botched the description?


I'm not expecting AT&T to let us have Black anytime soon.  It's been a month and still no GDR3.
