Android 5.0 Lollipop support added in latest Nokia HERE update
Last month, Nokia (the company’s that still exists after Microsoft acquired its mobile phone division) launched HERE for Android, thus bringing its HERE maps and services to a platform that previously couldn’t have them.
HERE for Android has been downloaded almost 1 million times, and today it received a pretty important update, one that adds support for Android 5.0 Lollipop. Of course, at the moment, few people out there have Lollipop on their handsets, but this will change in the coming months. The update also brings a few bug fixes, and under-the-hood enhancements which should ultimately make HERE “a more stable travel companion.”
HERE for Android can be used both online, and offline, featuring turn-by-turn voice guidance, interactive maps, public transport maps, live traffic info for more than 40 countries, and so on. The app is still in beta, and for now you can not find it on Google Play. Owners of select Samsung Galaxy smartphones can get the app via Samsung Galaxy Apps store. Folks with non-Galaxy handsets running Android 4.1 or later can get an .apk file from the official HERE website, and then install it. You can find out more at the source links below.
