Bluetooth File Transfer, Cinemagraph and more coming to Nokia Lumia handsets
As part of their commitment to the Windows Phone platform, Nokia has been introducing a range of apps exclusive to their own Lumia line of phones. Ranging from enhancements to apps which make up features missing in the platform, Nokia aims to provide long term support to owners of Lumia devices. Last week Nokia launched its City Lens app which is an augmented reality app to provide real time information about your surroundings.
Recently demoed apps like Cinemagraph will be brought over to current devices. Nokia plans to make improvements to its Smart Group Shot app in terms of shooting and making it easier to share images. With the Windows Phone 7.8 update, all phones will get the new start screen from Windows Phone 8 complete with three tile sizes. Additionally, bluetooth file transfer capabilities will be added to the devices to facilitate exchanging media via Bluetooth. The current contact share app will be updated to allow sharing over bluetooth as well in addition to SMS and email. In addition to the new apps announced, Nokia plans to continue providing additional value and features to current Lumia devices.
