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 has pushed out a new app a few weeks ago, which evidently received an update today that is simply called Accessory Shop. The app helps you find Nokia Lumia accessories for your Windows Phone right from your device plus it can alert you to deals.

The app is really just a front-end for the Amazon.com store, but it is wrapped up in a nice little user interface.

If we had to name one of our top apps, at least on a Nokia Windows Phone, Creative Studio would be up there. That’s because we take a lot of pics with our Lumia, so it makes sense we’d want to tidy up things a bit and maybe even play around with some different effects.

Today, Creative Studio received a minor update from 5.0.7.6 to 5.0.8.67 and as far as we can tell, there is no discernable difference in terms of features, but it we had to guess Nokia fixed or tweaked something that was causing some issues.

This week we take an in-depth look at Monopoly Millionaire from Nokia and Electronic Arts. Millionaire enjoys the distinction of being the first Nokia-published Xbox game to require Windows Phone 8 (Mass Effect: Inflitrator is the second). It also requires 1 GB of RAM for some reason, which stinks for a less than hardware intensive game. But people with the hardware that can run Millionaire will find a pretty impressive take on the ancient game of Monopoly.

Playing it honors our ancestors or something!

Back at Mobile World Congress, we showed a new app that was being developed by Nokia called JobLens. If you thing that sounds a lot like City Lens, their other famous app, you’d be right and the two share more than just a common name.

JobLens is a new project from Nokia that where they team up with LinkedIn, Indeed, Salary.com and Zillow to help you find jobs immediately around your current location. The app ties into your LinkedIn account (or Facebook, Twitter, etc.) to create a “network” and then finds jobs that may be of interest to you.

Nokia has bumped the NFC Writer app for Lumia Windows Phones to version 1.0.0.57. The first change we've noticed is the product link for grabbing more tags off Amazon now works in the UK (we've noticed the app crashed when selecting the link). That said, there have been reports that the app is continuing to cause problems for consumers with crash reports coming in regarding the purchase link. Looks like Nokia has to have a deeper look.

Near the end of 2011, Nokia and Electronic Arts announced a partnership. Nokia would publish new EA Xbox Windows Phone games exclusively for Lumia devices. The deal included EA’s subsidiaries Chillingo and PopCap as well. It took a while for the first exclusive to show up: Mirror’s Edge in July 2012. After that, the floodgates opened as more and more EA games arrived on our platform.

Nokia has updated its NFC Writer app for Lumia Windows Phones. Version 1.0.0.550 sounds as though it was a minor bump and you'd be right to assume such a thing. The only notable difference we can spot is the addition of a "NFC Tags" entry on the main menu. This loads a screen that explains why users should purchase and use official NFC tags from Nokia.

Nokia has pushed out an update for all Ringtone Maker users. The Nokia exclusive app, which can be found in the Nokia Collection, enables the creation of ringtones from music files stored locally on the Windows Phone 8 device. While Xbox Music tracks are not supported (unless purchased), it's a great little app to create some fresh new tunes.

NBA Jam Review: Catching Windows Phone on fire!

Way back in the eighties and nineties, Midway, the developer most remembered for creating the Mortal Kombat series also introduced a couple of sports series into arcades. First came Arch Rivals (basketball) in 1989 and then High Impact (American football) in 1990. Both games enjoyed some popularity, but it was their league-licensed sequels that really caught on fire: NBA Jam in 1993 and NFL Blitz in 1997.

NBA Jam became a staple of the 16-bit era (right alongside Mortal Kombat), thanks in part to a bevy of home console ports. The series had largely died out by the mid-2000s, shortly before Midway itself went bankrupt. Jam could have ended there, but Electronic Arts (in what some would call a rare act of benevolence) rescued the license in 2010 and published a new version for home consoles, followed by an even better XBLA sequel, NBA Jam: On Fire Edition.
