Implementations for Microsoft Lumia - Building of signature products for Microsoft platforms

Overview:

Microsoft Lumia (previously the Nokia Lumia Series) was a range of mobile devices designed and marketed by Microsoft Mobile and previously by Nokia. Introduced in November 2011, the line resulted from a long-term partnership between Nokia and Microsoft. In 2012 when Microsoft launched their Nokia Lumia Phones and Windows Marketplace Store, out of 11 signature apps featured on the Windows Marketplace 8 were powered by Divum. The apps included MoneyControl, BookMyShow, IndiaToday, IBN Live, NDTV, AajTak, BigFlix, and Zomato. The apps offered platform-specific designs, OS-level integrations, and core device-specific SDKs for superior device engagement and experience. We also implemented the full feature set for the above apps to serve the Windows Phone platform.

We at Divum Technologies helped Microsoft create a new market for smartphones. The Windows Marketplace Store is where MSM can build partnerships with app developers and “create” their exclusive apps unavailable in Android or iOS app stores. The store was launched in the USA, Japan, and other countries in December 2011. The WP Store offers world-leading navigation tools, is faster, and offers more app discovery features than its competitors.
