The Mobility app, for Android, has been developed by the Nokia-owned mobile phone maker and the software firm will allow users to share their mobile phone’s location, weather, phone number and other data.
The app is designed for the Nokia N9, N9+ and Nokia MeeGo phones, but it can also be used with other phones including the Nokia M800 and Nokia 910.
The Nokia mobile phone, launched in 2010, is the most popular phone in the world, accounting for nearly 10% of the global market, according to research firm IDC.
The platform will allow Nokia users to take advantage of the latest mobile technology to help them navigate their everyday lives, and will allow them to stay connected to their family and friends.
“Mobile phone owners around the world are increasingly turning to the internet to connect with friends and family, and the Mobility app is the latest innovation in the market,” said Michael Sjöström, chief marketing officer at Nokia.
“By giving people the ability to manage their personal information and to be able to access it remotely, we hope it will help them make better use of the new technology.”
The app will work with a number of apps, such as WhatsApp and Google+, and is available in the Google Play store.
“The new version will allow people to share more personal information with their family, friends and work colleagues, such a name, address, health information and other important details,” said the company.
“We are excited to work with Nokia and its partners to make this available to more people.”
The company also plans to make mobile phone and web apps available to other phone makers and mobile carriers in the coming months.
“In the coming weeks, we will roll out a new update for the Mobile Phone App which will allow other mobile phone operators to launch mobile phone apps on our platform,” Mr Sjøströms said.
“This will be a huge step forward for the future of mobile phone use in Finland.”
The new app, which was created by Nokia, will be available in Finnish and Swedish.
“We are very excited about the potential of the Nokia mobile app and look forward to working with the team on this project,” Mr Johansson said.
