Official Man of Steel app exclusively available for Nokia Windows Phones

As fans eagerly await for the Warner Bros. film, Man of Steel to be released, they're now able to download the official app for Windows Phone. Nokia has struck yet another exclusive deal and Man of Steel is currently available on Lumia hardware only. So what's the app all about and should you be interested?

Short answer? Yes, most definitely. If you're not sure exactly what Man of Steel is all about, it's an upcoming film about the DC Comics character Superman. Users are able to enjoy media such as wallpapers, character information and an enjoyable interactive game that puts the player in control of flight. Four chapters with 40 game challenges can be beaten to unlock more than 40 rewards (we'll not spoil it for you).

But that's just the tip of the iceberg as the Man of Steel app for Windows Phone also allows movie fans to locate where the film is being shown in the local area, powered by Nokia's HERE Maps. Those who reside in the US and UK can then purchase tickets to go see the upcoming film. If you're that excited, a countdown timer is present.

App Man of Steel

Trailers can be viewed from within the app, along with biographies on all the stars featured in the film. The last notable feature of the Man of Steel app is the integration with the camera, offering up the possibility to capture shots of one's favourite background, which can have the Man of Steel "super-imposed" on it for interesting results.

Consumers can share unlocked rewards and photos with friends, utilising the built-in social functionality. Should you be an avid fan or slightly interested in such an app, you can download Man of Steel from the Nokia Collection on the Windows Phone Store for free. Unfortunately, for the time being, the app is only available on Lumia hardware.
