For those of you who own a Windows Phone 8 device from Nokia, you are most likely using the HERE suite of apps. Nokia has rolled out a new update to HERE Drive, Drive +, and Transit apps, offering several new features including the ability to see an overview of traffic conditions in your area.
HERE Drive and Drive+ have both received an update that features a more intuitive user interface, and other significant improvements to the code. Nokia has added the ability to see an overview of traffic conditions in your area and a new feature called My Commute, which showcases estimated travel time on the paths you normally take.
“My Commute informs you of the best route and the expected arrival time at a glance on the Live Tile. When you’re driving, My Commute continues to monitor your route and notifies you of any unexpected delays that might lie ahead and suggest alternative routes,” Nokia explains.
HERE Transit has been updated to match the user design principles of Windows Phone 8. “HERE offers true offline maps and the most complete, intuitive, and personal location experience available on any platform, making Windows Phone 8 the leading location enabled OS,” Nokia adds.
Nokia will be rolling out these updates by the end of this week, so stay tuned! For those of you who previously used Google Maps for directions, how do you like using Nokia’s HERE suite?Further reading: Nokia, Windows Phone
