Updated: HERE Maps for Nokia X2, coming soon to Nokia X too

HERE knows that getting you from A-to-B without any dramas, no matter which device you’re on, is important.

The HERE team has listened to your feedback and introduced some changes. Here’s what’s improved in the latest update.

A global navigation license is included in the new edition, making it easier for you to find your way not only around your neighbourhood, but further afield.

HERE-Maps-update

The number of steps it takes to get you to where you want to be has been reduced.

At first launch, gone are the ‘do you want to download voice packs?’ screens. Instead, you’ll get these notifications later on, when you’ve got more time on your hands.

No longer will you see a blank screen as the map loads itself, an informative ‘downloading data, the map will appear shortly’ notice will appear, letting you know HERE’s working hard to retrieve the data for you.

Were you hoping for improved satellite images? They’ve made the cut.

This version of HERE Maps is now available in the Nokia Store for Nokia X2, and is coming to Nokia X, Nokia X+ and Nokia XL in the coming weeks (requires the latest Nokia X software update).

More details are available over at the HERE Three Sixty blog.

Nokia-X-Dual-SIM-Skype

Just in: Skype for Nokia X family gets an update

The latest version of the popular Skype app for Nokia X, Nokia X+, Nokia XL and Nokia X2 is also available in the Nokia Store now.

The new version of Skype brings significant battery and call quality improvements, full support for cloud-based 1:1 and group chats (meaning you can message your friends even if they are not online) and better video messaging.

If you’re using the pre-installed version of Skype on your Nokia X, we recommend you update to the latest version now in order to continue using Skype and make the most of the latest features.

Between all the updates coming in for your Nokia X or Nokia X2, which one is your favourite?
