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.

We’ve been seeing more and more previously 1GB-only apps and games head south to the 512MB zone and today it’s Nokia’s Video Upload app (previously known as YouTube Upload). The app was released a few weeks ago with the Lumia 1020, giving those users a quick and easy way to upload their videos to their YouTube account, including title and privacy restrictions.

Good news if you’re looking to ramp up your photography skills on the Lumia 925, as Nokia is now allowing the Pro Cam app on that phone. Previously, the advanced photography suite was only available for the Nokia Lumia 1020 but it was also known that it would trickle down to the 92x series later.

Today, we can confirm that on our Lumia 925 we can install and indeed use the app. We also suspect that Lumia 928 users may be also be able to use it as well as those on the Lumia 920 who have received the combo GDR2 + Amber updates. In order for the app to work, it requires some OS modifications and the Amber firmware that those new updates bring.

Nokia Windows Phone owners will have used Lumia Pusher in the past to see if the plethora of apps and system apps installed require updating. The app has unfortunately been pulled for some reason, but fear not as another developer has picked up the baton and launched NOKIA COLLECTION.

The new app shares similar functionality to Lumia Pusher in that you can hit multiple entries to be beamed to the store. It's a solid replacement.

Nokia's Video Trimmer app enables you to trim and easily edit videos recorded on your Lumia Windows Phone. Launched alongside the Lumia 1020, Video Trimmer was previously unavailable on hardware other than the latest flagship Windows Phone. This has since changed as it's now possible to download Video Trimmer if you're running GDR2 and rocking a Lumia 920 or above.

Back when the Nokia Lumia 925 was announced, we brought you an early look at Car App, a forthcoming app from Nokia that was enabled via NFC and used in conjunction with their wireless CR-200 car mount. The app provided the time, weather, battery life, quick call access and easy taps to HERE Drive + and Nokia Music. It was not only well done, but seemingly very useful for when you are otherwise occupied with driving.

The problem is, we never really saw that app materialize in the Nokia Collection. Well, as it turns out, it comes with the Nokia Accessories app (found under Settings) and is in fact, hidden. The app can evidently only be activated by scanning an NFC tag that is found on Nokia’s CR-200 car mount and is similar to the Desktop App that is only accessible by Nokia’s Qi chargers. That $100 car mount though is hard to find and let’s be honest, quite pricey.

App Highlights has been Nokia's way to show customers which content is worth checking out on the Windows Phone Store. Showcasing the best apps and games, not only from the manufacturer but also third party developers, it was a superb way to keep up-to-date with latest trends. Today we've been informed that Nokia has merged App Highlights with App Social, with the former being removed from existence.

Summer is in full swing up here in the northern hemisphere. Depending on your location, this might be the only time of the year where you can really get outdoors and enjoy activities (I’m looking at you Seattle). We have a handful of great apps to track your workouts on Windows Phone (like Runtastic), but Active Fitness is a new one that has some pretty cool features that you’ll want to check out.

Just over a week ago, Nokia pushed out a new app to their Collection with the title Nokia YouTube Upload for the Nokia Lumia 1020. While it doesn’t quite roll off the tongue, it is admirably descriptive of its sole purpose: taking videos off of your Lumia and directly posting them to the popular video site. In a hands on demonstration, we noted that the app would upload the full version of your video over Wi-Fi though cellular connections would require a shorter video or waiting until Wi-Fi was present.

We’re not entirely into the idea of “selfies” aka the practice of photographing yourself and posting it to social networks, but we know many people are these days. Nokia released their Glam Me app earlier this year after a Mobile World Congress announcement for this exact purpose, hopefully appealing to the youth crowd. The app is for taking self-shots but it has the added bonus of an onboard editor for making your face all pretty-like.

Nokia just pushed out version 1.5.5.12 of the app today and boy did it get a makeover itself. The app now has numerous new features that are really interesting, even if you have no plans for a “selfie” anytime soon.

During Nokia’s Lumia 925 event back in May it was revealed that Hipstamatic Oggl (hipstamatic.com/oggl) would be coming exclusively to Lumia Windows Phones, allowing the more serious photographer out there to share their images on the Hipstamatic network.

Previously available only on iOS and powered by filters and lenses, the potent photo network also allows users to post directly to Instagram via a deal reached with the company in mid-2012.  Besides Instagram, Facebook and Twitter support are also included.

Now with the Nokia Lumia 1020 officially released today on AT&T, Oggl (for Windows Phone 8 Lumias) and Oggl Pro (for the Lumia 1020) will be available today as well.
