Nokia World in Abu Dhabi was a big event for Nokia and Windows Phone. It was there that Nokia unveiled new handsets like the Lumia 1320, Lumia 1520 and Lumia 2520. In addition to hardware we had some new apps from Nokia. One of the more interesting apps was Nokia Refocus. With Nokia Refocus you’re able to take a picture and select a focal point in the photograph over and over. That app has just been updated to make all Lumia owners happy.
When Nokia Refocus launched it was reserved for phones with PureView cameras. That means devices like the Lumia 920, Lumia 928 and Lumia 1020 could easily use the app. However, devices like the Lumia 520 and Lumia 720 couldn’t. Today that changes. Nokia Refocus has been updated to version 22.214.171.124 with the following changes:
- Support for all Lumia WP8 devices
- Improved focus
That’s right. So long as you have a Nokia Lumia with Windows Phone 8 you should be able to use Nokia Refocus now. Not only is the app available to all, but the actual focus itself has been improved. Don’t remember the app? Be sure to read our hands-on with the app or check out the video below.
Update: Some users are having trouble downloading the app. Let us know your device/region and whether you can download the app. We'll reach out to Nokia to clarify.
Update 2: Our friends over at Nokia Conversations have confirmed that the app will be available to all Lumia handsets. Give the Windows Phone Store sometime to roll out the changes. Enjoy when you do get it! Tweet us some of your cool pictures you make and we'll retweet the best ones. Send them to @wpcentral
Want to grab Nokia Refocus for you Lumia? Grab it from the Windows Phone Store.
Thanks for the tip Fahmi B!
