As announced in last month, Nokia has developed a version of its Android navigation app and maps: Here Maps beta. It is in the form of a beta version that Android users can use it. At the beginning of September, Nokia made it known that Here Maps would be exclusively available to users of Galaxy smartphones from Samsung. With the release of the first beta for smartphones from Samsung, we learn that the application is also limited to Galaxy devices running Android 4.1 and above and have at least a gigabyte of RAM.
The Nokia Here application has the advantage, unlike Google Maps, we can save maps to the device memory for offline usage. This feature is especially useful when users do not have access to an internet connection. Here maps beta are equivalent to the maps used in cars for GPS.
Moreover, in some countries, Here will provide access to traffic information in real time, just like Google Navigation. Here could easily dethrone Google Maps, but it is necessary that the application is available for many devices, if possible for all devices. Although it is limited to devices from Samsung for now, a beta for Android seems to be a good decision by Nokia for its use to be present on up to smartphones.
This version is a good alternative to the application of Google Maps.
