Nokia Lumia 800 and 710 get Camera Extras, more apps - read the full textThe Nokia Lumia 900 and Lumia 610 already received some of the updates that Nokia promised (in the US and China at least) at the WP summit and now it's time for the older duo - the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 - to get their own. There's a little something for the 900 and 610 too. To be clear,...

I googles about this app's QR Code and found one website through which using Bing search I found the app in Marketplace. For one week I can see the app in marketplace but couldnt install it becuase the option was not there. Now again I tried today and I got the installation option.Finaly

Guys the apps is really really cool.....must have for camera users.

I have a Lumia 800 from O2-UK and still haven't received the new software update. Happened to see this page for a carrier-wise release status (hope it helps others) -> It still says "Waiting for Approval" for O2. Does anyone know how long does O2 take in general to release software updates as this?

I did get my update (OS and firmware) to my Lumia 800 (in Finland) but Camera extra's don't seem to be available. If I open Creative Studio, I am now able to take panoramas, but there is no smart group shot, action shot or self timer. Why is that?

T-mobile uk deny any such update exists. Nokia advise depending on whom you speak check nokia's own website and claim it was sent to the network or it will be sent out within a short period that the website is correct but it's too soon or it will be another month at least before the update is ready but despite this the website isn't wrong. Idiots.

Cool! Looking forward to these apps being made available in Australia. Play To is very good, although what I really want is to stream music, not just photos and video.

Nokia will dominate in 2013, because Windows Phone 8 is a beast. WP8 shares to same Windows NT kernel in Windows 8. You should see a bunch of amazing PC games and apps coming to Windows Phone 8.

Where is the Windows Phone 7.8 update, Nokia will make it available today on June 27. I connected through the Zune and I can't get the Update. It's very disappointing.

its just the beginning for WP its sad to see that happen but if Ur phone can get WP 7.8 and u happy with it then i dont see any problem here

Nokia is definitely going in the correct direction with windows as frontline os and in the event of misfire it has its own fully set developing can any day step up the symbian os n compete with others(as per recent leaks we all know that its quite capable)..besides windows can never let it down..its the smoothest safest os...with windows 8 its even more powerful..and when its coupled with pureview its a nightmare for the competitors...
