HERE beta version now available for other Android devices

A few months after making the beta version available for Samsung Galaxy devices, offline mapping app HERE is now, well, here for other Android devices. The app can now be manually downloaded by all compatible devices and its developer Nokia (yes, that Nokia!) says that it is much improved as they based changes on feedback from those who have previously accessed the beta version through their Galaxy smartphones.

Hands-on with Nokia HERE beta with offline maps

When you talk about digital maps, Google is the name that will undoubtedly come up first. Nokia, who is no longer making smartphones, is trying to take a bite out of that market by making its own HERE maps available to a wider audience. And now we're taking the official beta (not the leaked version) of HERE on Android for a spin to see what this Google Maps competitor has to offer.

Nokia’s HERE mapping app coming to Android soon

Nokia’s very own mapping app, which was initially released for iOS and then later pulled from the App Store is finally coming to Android and back again to iOS. HERE is Nokia’s answer to the widely used Google Maps and not-so-reliable Apple Maps.

HERE for Android beta launches on Samsung Galaxy devices

Owners of Samsung Galaxy devices are now able to get exclusive access to the beta version of HERE for Android. Samsung and the team behind HERE have an agreement in place that will get Galaxy device owners free and exclusive access to HERE on devices like the S5 and others.
