Windows Phone 8 is designed to streamline your digital world with its intuitive and unified interface, and the Nokia Lumias with Windows Phone take full advantage of this power. New resizable Live Tiles give you a more flexible interface for displaying data to users, allowing them to customize your app the way they want.
The Nokia Imaging SDK, based on the same patented RAJPEG technology as used in Nokia's own imaging apps, enables CPU and memory efficient image manipulation, filter effects and on screen rendering, unlike any other library. The latest release also makes available some of the most requested features, such as changing filter parameters dynamically and implementing custom filters, as well as support for Chromakey, which enables "green screen magic".
If you are working on location-aware apps for Windows Phone 8, tap into the leading mapping and navigation platform.
Microsoft has chosen Nokia's technology to provide maps (offline and online), map controls, and routing capabilities to Windows Phone 8. Access to the Nokia Location Platform is enabled through a set of Map APIs in the Windows Phone 8 SDK. Nokia offers client-side APIs and REST services for other platforms too.
Nokia Music is now Nokia Mix Radio, and has been made even more powerful. Integrate the leading music platform into your Nokia
Lumia apps, using the Nokia MixRadio APIs. Let your users add a soundtrack, discover gigs, explore artists and more. The
API is also available as a Web API for non-Nokia platforms.

NFC is opening up new possibilities for mobile apps. Using this short-range radio technology can greatly simplify how users obtain information from and interact with their environment. When a phone touches or is held near an NFC tag or another NFC-capable device, data can be exchanged. This data could be a link to the download of the menu from a favourite restaurant, the specifications for an electronic gizmo, or pairing information from a Bluetooth headset or another phone that can be used to exchange objects: the possibilities are endless.
