We invite you to try Nokia Drop beta, a simple and straightforward way to push content to device for Symbian^3 and S60 5th Edition phones. We proudly presents these first three feature: change your phone's homescreen wallpaper, send a picture to your phone, and send an interesting link to your phone, for example so that you can read an article on your phone without writing the long and difficult web address.
Let's take a deeper look at changing your wallpaper. Have you ever notice how many clicks you need to do before you have changed your wallpaper? And if you see nice picture on a web site which you want to have as a wallpaper, it takes quite a long flow to have it as a wallpaper.
But now, thanks to Push Notifications and the Nokia Drop application, it's very easy to do this. With the Nokia Drop application installed on your phone and our browser extension installed to your browser, you can now send wallpapers from public websites easily to your device. All this happens without Bluetooth or cable connection or syncing. At least I realized that I have never changed my homescreen wallpapers as often as I do now.
This technical solution provides huge opportunities to add different kind of content to your device. So stay tuned, there will be more. In the meanwhile we’d highly appreciate your feedback concerning this first feature set.
And as we are now launching this application to wider audience I also want to thank those that have contributed to the design, development, and feedback thus far.
