Nokia Pulse gets a big update, Maps Suite tweaked

Published by at

If you've been brave enough to throw yourself into the Beta Maps Suite, note that there's a big update to Pulse, its core module that allows you to share your location and activities with friends and relatives with other Symbian phones loaded with the software. Changelog and links below, and the usual caveats apply about beta software and backups!

From the Beta Labs team blog, it seems a new version of Nokia Maps Suite is available with the following changes to Pulse:

  • Login – fewer Nokia Account login prompts
  • Notifications – more reliable push notifications
  • Keyboard – various bug fixes including stuck CAP lock, frozen cursor, delete key stops functioning, and we also added split-screen feature
  • Interoperability – compatible with latest versions of various Qt components, especially important because the latest Store client available this week uses a new version of a dependency that is not compatible with the previous Pulse v0.91(6)

Nokia Live View has been withdrawn from the Maps Suite as it was causing issues, but is still available as a standalone app.

Public Transport and Places are still in the Maps Suite but haven't been changed for this release.

You can download the latest version of Nokia Maps Suite and try it out, leave feedback if you spot problems to help out the Beta Labs guys!
