It had to happen sooner or later. Nokia apps on Windows Phone Store, including Nokia MixRadio, Nokia Camera, and others are now published by Microsoft Mobile Oy. Headquartered in Espoo, Finland, Microsoft Mobile Oy is the wholly owned subsidiary of Microsoft Corp formed after the acquisition of the devices business of Nokia Corporation.
Before the change, apps had 'Nokia Corporation' as the publisher name. While the publisher name has changed, the category listing for Nokia and recommended by Nokia apps still says ‘Apps from Nokia’.
Not all apps have been affected. The HERE suite of apps – HERE Maps, HERE Transit, HERE Drive+, HERE City Lens – retain the publisher name 'Here Europe B.V.', since the HERE division at Nokia wasn’t a part of the deal and remains with Nokia.
It'll be interesting to see how Microsoft addresses app branding now the company has control of the app collection.
Thanks, Clifford, and everyone else for the tips!
