Nokia to bring Pulse app to iOS and Android


Nokia Pulse

Nokia has been doing some work (and promising much more) to create software for Windows Phone that can help differentiate its Lumia lineup from the rest of the pack, but apparently it’s also developing software for other platforms too — namely iOS and Android.

Currently, Nokia is beta testing an app called “Pulse,” which is a mashup of mapping software from its Navteq acquisition, check-ins, messaging, and photos. Basically, it’s one of many increasingly run-of-the-mill social-networking-location apps, but developed and backed by Nokia. Currently, it’s available on Windows Phone, Symbian, Meego, and as a mobile web offering.

In an interview with the Boston Business Journal, Nokia’s Global Head of Social and Location Based Applications, Başak Özer, said that the next platforms she intends to bring the app to are Android and iOS. “To be social, you have to be on every platform.” Özer doesn’t expect Pulse to overtake Twitter or Facebook, but did hint that Nokia is beginning to look in the direction of social networking with a suite of interconnected Nokia apps.
