Nokia X's Nokia Store ported over to other Android devices
If Android users could port over any particular app from the forked version of the OS used on the Nokia X, it probably would be Nokia Maps. The highly regarded HERE mapping application replaces Google Maps on the Nokia X line. Unfortunately, Nokia Maps is not yet available for other Android flavored devices. However, the Nokia Store, which replaces the Google Play Store on the Nokia X, has indeed been ported over by XDA Senior Member opssemnik.

The Nokia Store can now work on other versions of Android without any build.prop mods. Be forewarned that not every app can be downloaded because of API issues and some permissions. But if you want to load the Nokia Store on your Android phone, simply click on the sourcelink to the application thread from where you can download and install it.

You must have an Android device running Android 4.1.2 or higher to port over the Nokia Store to your phone.
