Here is good news for Nokia Lumia user; the Finnish mobile maker has released some applications exclusively for Lumia users. The list includes Nokia Transport, Nokia Maps and Nokia Drive, which were recently updates with new features and all of them are available at Windows Phone Marketplace, even also you’ll be notified automatically when the updates are available for download.
You can drive more safely because speed limits and relevant notifications are clearly visible in the app dashboard. Warnings are fully customizable with audio alerts and specific triggers with Nokia Drive. Additionally, the company introduced your most requested feature in this update: a complete offline experience. When you open Nokia Drive, under Settings > Manage maps you can download country maps for offline access. You can now rely on Nokia Drive in areas with poor network coverage or cut your data costs when you’re visiting foreign countries.
If you like to create a list of all the places you want to visit in a city, you’ll enjoy using the new feature of Nokia Maps that allows you to add places to favourites. And because you are most likely to share your new findings with friends, the company made it easier to share place details and how to get there via SMS, email or social networks. Also, when you plan a journey with trains and buses, you can now tap on each waypoint shown on the map to get immediately more information. However, if you use public transport to commute or when visiting a foreign city, we suggest you to download the newest Nokia Transport app.
Available in more than 510 cities in 46 countries, Nokia Transport has received a lot of attention since we first introduced it at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The app provides an overview of how to get, within city limits, from A to B using public transportation. Walk directions are displayed to help you get to the next stop and from the last stop to your destination. In 86 cities we also include timetable information.
