Nokia Music for WP8 gets Live Tile Support

Just the other day I was talking about how some developers seem to forget (or not care) about each mobile platform strengths and differences, merely porting their apps from one to the other, not really taking advantage of each platform specific features. Well, Nokia Music wasn't bad on Windows Phone, but now it got a lot better.

The app finally puts your Windows Phone Live Tiles to good use, showing music info directly in front of you (album artwork, artist and song names, etc.) which is a great thing, considering just how much Live Tiles are responsible for making Windows Phone "different" from the other mobile platforms (iOS and Android).

Besides that, you also get:

  • Rewind and fast forward your MP3s
  • Download mixes without being interrupted by the screenlock
  • As well as generic "Performance improvements"

All in all... if you have a Windows Phone, you'll want to update your Nokia Music app as soon as you get the chance.
