Nokia HERE Maps now available in the Google Play Store

Nokia HERE Maps now available in the Google Play Store

As Nokia expands its services across its platforms and even revealed its first device after the Microsoft deal, it announced that the HERE Maps app is now available beyond just Samsung phones, as the app went live for all Android users in the Google Play Store.

Here for Android


The app, which works absolutely free, had actually been available for Android users a day before, but only as an APK (Android application package) download. Starting today, the app is finally available for installation where the Android masses gather to discover and download new apps.

Nokia’s mapping service enters the Android ecosystem where it is dominated locally by Google’s own Maps and crowd-sourcing traffic application Waze. The Finnish company also noted that the iOS version of the app will be live sometime early next year, despite early confirmations that both the iOS and Android apps will be finished by the end of the year.

Have you downloaded the new application? If not, head right over here. Tell us your thoughts about it!

    Google Maps is still way better-looking than the Nokia HERE.

    One of the best map application out there. It let’s you save an entire country’s map data into your phone. You can even perform search while offline.

    Most of the people who spread the FUD about compatibility problems in Intel’s SoC probably don’t know that the Android SDK (the software used in developing Android Apps) is now optimized for Intel’s x86 architecture. Heck, even an old Android app I bought during the days of Gingerbread still works fine with the Intel Atom.

    Tried loading Nokia Here Maps on my Nexus 5 and Motorola Moto G and I have encountered some random crashes. Take note that the Nokia Here Maps is Nokia’s second app to get published in Play Store and it’s possible that they still don’t know how to optimize it for other phones.
