HereMaps

Nokia has announced that its Here maps will soon be available for devices running Windows 8.1, whether that’s tablets, laptops or desktops.

The update is due to start rolling out in the “coming days” (beginning in North America and Europe) but it’s not quite the first time that Here will have been available on Windows 8.1 machines; it has previously been restricted to Nokia’s own Lumia tablet- the 2520.

The new app will be available to download via the Windows Store for RT and Pro devices and Nokia said it will bring a number of improvements too, like faster page loading and hi-res satellite imagery.
