Nokia’s Navigation and Location Apps Get the ‘HERE’ Branding

During Nokia’s Press conference at MWC 2013, the company announced that the names of all its Navigation and Location apps will get the HERE branding. This is only for Nokia’s Windows Phone 8 devices.


Nokia’s latest Lumia 720 and 520 will come pre-installed with the HERE apps. These apps inlcude HERE Maps, HERE Drive (with regional navigation), HERE Drive+ (with global navigation), HERE Transit and HERE City Lens. The Nokia branding on these is no more, but they’ll still provide the same experience, if not better.


All these new updated HERE apps can function independently and also work together providing a seamless experience. For example, you can use HERE Maps to open HERE Transit to get more transit options, then switch back to HERE Maps to get to the location. Everything works perfectly in sync with each other.

The HERE Maps, HERE Drive and HERE Transit apps are only available for Windows Phone 8 devices.
