Nokia update roundup: Video Upload hits 2.0, Cinemagraph and Access Point with fixes

While Nokia is hard at work putting the final polish on the Lumia Cyan firmware update, they’re still updating their Collection at a steady clip. Today, we have no less than three app updates, which you may be interested in checking out.

Nokia Cinemagraph

Cinemagraph is a great app for creating ‘living’ images. By combining a looping video with a still image, you can add some pizzazz to your memories. The one downside to using Cinemagraph is you have to remember to use it, which is why it’ll be augmented by their new ‘Living Images’ app coming with Lumia Cyan.

This morning though, you can pick up version of the app, which appears to have some minor optimizations in place for 8.1. You can grab it here in the Store.

Nokia Video Upload

Need to upload a video quickly to YouTube? Look no further than Nokia’s handy app to do just that task. Video Upload hits 2.0 today and finally gets a privacy setting for those who want to keep their videos non-public. We assume there are some other optimizations going on, but Nokia is keeping mum on those details.

Grab Nokia Video Upload here in the Store. Let us know if you see any other improvements.

Access Point

Nokia Access Point gets a teeny bump to version this morning. The app is only needed if you frequently pop in new SIM cards to your Lumia and you need pre-configured carrier settings to make sure your SMS/MMS messages go through and it plays nice with the network. Today’s update likely just adds a few more carrier settings, and nothing more.

Pick up Access Point here in the Nokia Collection.
