Updated with Lumia Black? Grab Nokia Beamer and StoryTeller from the Windows Phone Store

Nokia is currently pushing out the highly anticipated Lumia Black update to Lumia 1020 and Lumia 925 owners in multiple markets (we're receiving tips left, right and centre from you guys – other Lumia Windows Phones will follow). But did you also know that once updated you'll be able to take full advantage of both Nokia Beamer and StoryTeller?

These two apps were previously only available on the Lumia 1520, which runs Nokia's Black update. Rocking Lumia Black on your Lumia 925 or 1020? Head on past the break for more details, QR codes and download links for these two great apps.

Nokia StoryTeller

This is an interesting app, especially if you're a fan of taking photos (and with a Lumia Windows Phone, why wouldn't you be?). What StoryTeller by Nokia does is it takes all your photos and automatically arrangers them, utilising HERE services for data to categorise said images into galleries. What's more is if you take numerous shots in a single sitting, the app will attempt to select the best ones for you.

A pretty neat feature in StoryTeller is the HERE Maps integration. Further expanding on what we touched on above, when viewing photos you're able to zoom out to be met with an overlay showing where all your shots where taken. You can move around the map, select galleries you wish to check out and you'll be presented with all the best photos, capturing those special moments.

Nokia Beamer

Nokia Beamer

​There are generally never any complaints when it comes to Nokia's collection of Windows Phone apps. The company has some ridiculous functionality covered and Nokia Beamer doesn't disappoint. With the app installed, you'll be able to not only share images with larger screens, but also sharing your screen just like a mirror.

If you're a fan of PhotoBeamer, you'll need to install Nokia Beamer. The app mirrors what's displayed on your phone with another device, shared via QR codes, links and more. We strongly recommend you check this out, it's seriously cool.
