Mobile giant, Nokia has announced the launch of its Nearby application for the S40 OS based feature phones.
So now Nokia S40 OS based feature phone users can also discover what’s around them with the help of this app. Even phones which do not have GPS can also use this app’s web interface to find near-by places of interest.
With the use of the Nokia Nearby application, users can to find the nearest showroom, coffee shop, ATM, transit station etc. Users can also save their favourite places and share them with their friends and family members or anyone through social network. The app also shows reviews, ratings and even phone numbers (advertised or given by any other user) of places.
The Nokia Nearby application for S40 OS based devices is a web based application that has a very small installation or about 400 KB that hardly puts any load on the devices and therefore can be used with devices with low end hardware specifications.
The application (http://store.ovi.com/content/309930) requires a working internet connation to function and since Nokia Nearby is a web based application, they will need the Nokia Xpress browser (v2.0 or newer) installed on their phone as well for the application to work on their devices.
