Nokia Halts Development On HERE Maps Windows Phone

report from the country reveals that Nokia is set to stop development of the HERE Maps suite for Lumia handsets. No wonder there has been no major updates to the apps on the platform — none whatsoever. In the meantime, though, the company has brought HERE Maps to Android, where it clocked more than a million downloads in no time. You can check the app on the Play Store here. But users more or less love the solution for the neat advantages it brings compared to other mapping applications on the world’s most popular mobile platform. In particular the ability to store country or regional maps offline, unlike say, Google’s solution. Sure beats having to tap into the Internet every time. Nokia also plans to launch the HERE app on iOS next year, with development coming along at a brisk pace. Original plan was for a late 2014 launch, but you know how these things go. So does this mean, Windows Phone users are going to be left in the dark? Nope. While all this sounds dramatic, the app that you love will exist under a different banner on Windows Phone. Since Microsoft is already paying for the maps license, future development work will be handled by the company in Redmond. The torch has been, well and truly, handed down to Microsoft.]]>
