Nokia shows off exclusive Burton app in cool promotional video

Nokia has uploaded a video onto YouTube that shows off its exclusive Burton app, which is available for Lumia Windows Phones. The app was announced back at Mobile World Congress last week and sports some interesting features. The mobile phone and snowboard manufacturers have worked together on the app to implement features like Nokia Music connectivity, as well as a powerful lens through Nokia's sequencer API. 

As one would expect, the app is tailored for those who enjoy powering down mountains, while rocking out to some ABBA. But it's also useful for those of us who don't enjoy such activities (then again, who doesn't like ABBA?). For example: the sequencer feature enables users to record short videos (much like Cinemagraph), subsequently allowing the clip to be cut down and edited frame-by-frame.

You can download Burton from the Nokia Collection of apps on the Windows Phone Store. We also took a quick look at the Nokia X Burton insulator case for Windows Phones, which is also well worth checking out.
