Nokia updates Lumia Storage Check Beta, allows map data to be stored on SD cards [Updated]
Storage Check has been available on Nokia Windows Phones for a few weeks now, bundled with a firmware update. The app enables consumers to check exactly what's stored on the phone and manage the data accordingly. The company has already updated Storage Check and it's currently listed over on its Beta Labs website. This is to help the team squash bugs and solve issues consumers have experienced attempting to use the app.
So what's new in this version of Storage Check? According to product page on the Beta Labs website, it's now possible to store offline maps on an SD card. That's an extremely useful feature as smartphones (rather unfortunately) don't come with 1TB storage drives. Should you be having trouble with "Other Storage", you may want to check out this option once this version of Storage Check is released to the public.
Here's a quick look at the Storage Check app that's currently available for Lumia Windows Phones (not the beta version):
Be sure to head on over to the Nokia Beta Labs to try out the beta version and look up more information. If you're having trouble with the version in the "Settings" on your Lumia Windows Phone, it's recommended you try out this beta.
Update: Adding the Store link for the Beta of Storage Check, though users may need to register to download. You can find it in the Store here or scan the QR tag below.
