Microsoft is killing the whole Lumia Beta Apps project!! In series of tweets Lumia Beta Apps Twitter account has revealed that Lumia Beta Apps account and site will be discontinued on September 30. The new app innovations will come from Microsoft Garage project that hardly creates new apps for Windows
Things are moving fast in the world of Lumias. Not many days ago we reported about a Lumia 830 successor in works that can be called Lumia 840. Now we have some more info about its possible arrival.
But let me first share a surprising piece of news about Lumia 830.
Not so good news but one that was not unexpected, given Nokia to Microsoft Mobile transition. Last service to get discontinued was Nokia Sync and it was natural that at some point in time Microsoft will do the same with Nokia mail and Nokia Chat too, given it has Outlook
In case you are still using Nokia Sync on your Symbian, S40, Nokia N9 or any other Nokia devices, you need to either export your contact or migrate your records (contacts, calendars, notes) it to your Microsoft account, as it will be killed by Microsoft on December 5.
Dear Nokia mobile
One of the most loved Nokia property, "Nokia BetaLabs", the birth-place of many highly innovative and promising apps has moved to a new address now. The new home will be "lumiabetaapps.uservoice.com".
In a blog post, it has been announced that the existing Nokia BetaLabs site will be discontinued on September 5th
