Published by at

Nokia Drop, a desktop browser-based system for pushing content to your smartphone, has just received a big update, detailed below, with silent installations of apps from the Nokia Store and integration with the status drop-down pane in Belle. There's also a welcome tutorial to help new users.

Nokia Drop integration with Belle notificationsFrom the Beta Labs blog post:

New in Nokia Drop (version 1.4) are:

  • automatic update of the client software
  • silent installation of apps from the Nokia Store
  • an informative first-time-use tutorial, which will be shown after Nokia Drop installation and after that can be shown again via Options > Help.
  • store & forward. Items get stored for you if your client is not online. You'll receive them when you next go online.
  • a new version for Nokia Belle, more integrated into the OS, with all activities being shown in status panel and pop-ups.


Why not try it and give feedback via the Nokia Beta Labs forum?

And comments welcome on the whole 'push to your phone' software genre. Has it been worthwhile to you?
