Introducing Nokia Motion Monitor beta for the Nokia Lumia 1520

Motion Monitor timelineIf you have a Nokia Lumia 1520, you're invited to try out the new Nokia Motion Monitor beta app. Motion Monitor allows you to track your physical activity based on your motion and steps.

The app makes your activity intensity visible on a timeline where your daily details are visible, including step count.  The app tracks your activity intensity and steps through the day and it runs continuously in the background, consuming very little power.

This application will only work on the Nokia Lumia 1520, which has specific hardware that the app needs.

This beta trial is aiming to collect user feedback on overall usability of this feature, including usability of the application, quality of activity and step detection, and power consumption.  

So, please give it a try and let us know how it works for you.

Nokia Chat powered by Yahoo! beta 1.3 adds performance improvements and offline support

chatThe Nokia Chat team spends a lot of time searching for and reading your feedback.  Whether you provide it on the Nokia Beta Labs discussion forums, Twitter, the Windows Phone Store, or the comments section of your favorite blog, we care about what you have to say.  

So - it’s become clear to us that there are two key areas where Nokia Chat needs improvement: performance and offline support.   We’re happy to say that our new Nokia Chat powered by Yahoo! beta 1.3 takes the first, of many steps, to address both.  

Here’s what’s new and what’s changing:

Faster Startup - When you start Nokia Chat from a pinned tile or the app list, you’ll immediately see your contacts list and have access to past messages, while we simultaneously update both in the background after a network connection has been established.   Previously, you had to wait for these updates to complete before being able to use Chat.

Improved Performance and Responsiveness - Your contacts list and conversation threads will now load faster, and scrolling through both will be much quicker.  

Offline Mode - Starting Nokia Chat without a data connection?  No problem!  With our new offline mode, you’ll be able to read past messages and see a cached copy of your contacts list.  If your data connection returns while you’re inside Chat, simply tap the connect button: we’ll re-enable message sending, retrieve new messages, and update your contacts list.  

What are you waiting for?  Get it today!

We hope these improvements help you spend less time waiting for Chat and spend more time having a chat with millions of other Nokia Chat and Yahoo! Messenger users.  Until our next release, thank you for your continued support. We look forward to your feedback in the Nokia Beta Labs forum.

Best,
Nokia Chat Team
