Back in October, I was glad to report that HERE for Android was rolled out as a Beta on Samsung Galaxy Apps, the app store that used to be called Samsung Apps.

It’s now mid-December and I’m glad to report that HERE for Android has also been rolled as a Beta to Google Play, the app store that used to be called Android Market.


HERE, Nokia’s powerful mapping software that was formerly known as Ovi Maps and Nokia Maps, is available for Android users on two app stores: Samsung Galaxy Apps and Google Play.

The app has been on Samsung’s app store since early October. In the brief time it has been available to the public, it has been downloaded by more than a million people. Android users in Germany and the US were the most eager to get their hands on HERE for Android.

A few days ago, HERE landed on Google’s app store. Even more Android users from around the world can now get the app, put it to the test, and enjoy the wonderful functionality it has to offer. Speaking of which, here’s a look at HERE’s main features.

HERE for Android – Main Features
