Nokia hasn’t been talking much about Pulse, or was talking about it back in 2011 in MWC but remained mostly silent about the app afterwards.
Nokia Pulse on Windows Phone has now graduated to 0.9 and seems to be nearing finished version, for now the app is available from Nokia Beta Labs. If you don’t see the new version right away, don’t worry. Depending on your region there is possible day or two publishing delay.
- Pulse automatically adds your current location to each message you send, whether it’s a known place or your specific address. Suggest a place for your next gathering or simply say “I’m here,” and Pulse adds the rest.
- Deep integration with Nokia Maps. When you suggest a place to meet, you share rich details that everyone can access with a tap—ratings and reviews, map, directions, and even the phone number to call, all without ever leaving the app.
- Create a Pulse live tile or a conversation live tile by selecting “pin to start” for the Pulse app or a specific conversation. The Pulse live tile notifies you of a new Pulse message from any conversation while the conversation live tile lets you know when a new message is received in that conversation.
- When you send a Pulse message to a friend, they can use their Facebook log-in with Pulse if they don’t already have a Nokia account.
- Send your message to the people you choose and no one else—no complicated privacy settings needed. Start entering a friend’s email address, and we’ll auto-fill the email address if it’s already in your contact list
New features in the Nokia Pulse Beta 0.95.7:
- Conversation live tile – pin a specific conversation to your Start screen
- Pulse from landing page – tap in the “Send a message” box and go directly to the Compose screen
- Recognize multiple email addresses for an individual user
Nokia Pulse is also available on Symbian, N9 and web. These changes on 0.9 are only on Nokia Pulse Windows Phone version.
