Haven’t got a Lumia phone?
What do I get with the latest update?
New resizable Live Tiles
The iconic Windows Phone experience of Live Tiles really is what makes your Lumia come to life. At a single glance you are up to speed with what’s going on, and with the new start screen your Lumia phone becomes even more about you. That's because now you can fit more tiles on the home screen. Pick the tiles that matter to you most, move them about and resize them as you like – and mix it up by fitting four columns of smaller tiles on your screen to reduce scrolling.
Got the update? Now get the apps
There’s lots of great apps for your Nokia Lumia. With the likes of Camera Extras and Bluetooth Share to soup up your phone, you can get things set up just the way you want them. You can find these and more in Nokia Collection in Marketplace on your phone – take a look!
Now you can share more
