Nokia Store Ported to Other Android Devices

The Nokia X family’s fate is not yet set in stone. The first Android-powered device from the legendary OEM might prove to be a great success or even greater failure, as our Editor-in-Chief Will mentioned in his analysis. One thing is certain though: Some Nokia applications are highly anticipated, with Nokia Maps being right at the very top of the list. While Here Maps hasn’t yet been ported to other devices, one Nokia X app has made its way to other devices.

The first application ported from the Nokia X was the Nokia Store, which is a replacement of Google Play Store seen on the vast majority of Android devices. The application was ported by XDA Senior Member opssemnik, who did the dirty work, and now Nokia’s app can work without any build.prop modifications. Some applications still can’t be installed due to some permissions and API problems, but this is to be expected because of Nokia’s framework and API changes on the X family.

Hopefully, the Nokia Store is only the first application ported from the X. And maybe in time, we will see Nokia Maps and other Finnish goodies on Samsung, LG, Sony, and HTC devices. In the mean time, you can go to the application thread to get your hands on Nokia Store. From there, simply install the Nokia Store like any other app.

Find The Best Apps With Google’s Picks & Other Tricks

The Google Play Store, weighing in with more than 1.4 million apps at last count, is a vast expanse of quality content and APK duds alike. To put this into context, it would take the average user more than 8 days of continuous scrolling to make it through the whole list at two per second, let alone the added months to click through and check out screenshots, or years to separate the wheat from the chaff via thorough review.
