Same apps, brand new names

Well, not brand-new as such, but definitely more on brand.

In line with our recent branding changes, it’s only natural that our exclusive Lumia apps follow suit.


Some apps have already switched from Nokia to Lumia, but just to clarify what’s changing, let’s take a closer look.

In September, the Nokia prefix in Creative Studio, Panorama, Storyteller and Cinemagraph were swapped out and they all now look like this:

Other than the renaming, they’re still pretty much the same. And from today Nokia Camera will be renamed to Lumia Camera as well. This is purely a name change with no new feature updates.

The recently announced Lumia Camera update with Moment Capture and Rich Capture will be made available for the Lumia 830, Lumia 930 and Lumia 1520 and Lumia Icon with the Lumia Denim Update, which starts rolling out later this year.


Lumia Cinemagraph, however, will see some changes, with the sharing function being simplified to make it quicker and easier to share your memories with the new Lumia Cinemagraph Beta release.

Instead of hosting and sharing your animated creations from, you’ll be able to share cinemagraphs directly your favourite social networks like Facebook, as well as storing them on OneDrive.

Existing Cinemagraphs stored on your phone will remain intact in the Saved view of Lumia Cinemagraph, but when we switch to the new sharing features, any cinemagraphs stored on will be deleted. So we recommend everyone to download copies of their cinemagraphs now so they can be shared again.

The changes to Cinemagraph are expected to land in January 2015, so there’s plenty of time to save your creations and get ready for an easier way to share.

Which is your favorite Lumia app?
