Please note that as of October 24, 2014, the Nokia Developer Wiki will no longer be accepting user contributions, including new entries, edits and comments, as we begin transitioning to our new home, in the Windows Phone Development Wiki. We plan to move over the majority of the existing entries. Thanks for all your past and future contributions.

Wiki Home

Welcome to the Nokia Developer Wiki, home to 9075 community created articles, code examples, and other resources for developing on Nokia's Windows Phone (Lumia), Nokia Asha and HERE Location platforms (and all our other service and legacy platforms too).

The wiki is easy to use, but if you do need help there is plenty of guidance in the Help or from our discussion board. Content improvements are welcomed, and significant contribution is rewarded through the Wiki Contributor of the Month program.

You can use the search box above (or site search) to find specific topics. Alternatively browse through categories listed below.

Healthcare is being revolutionized by the availability of inexpensive mobile phones that offer powerful processing and local networking features.

Segment 1 winner selected

Segment 1 winner is oniongarlic for Using Bluetooth Heart Rate monitor from Java ME - find out more and congratulate him here.

With more than 3 weeks to go and 4 more prize packs to award (including phone, headphones, portable power pack and DVLUP XP), we're looking forward to seeing what great articles will come in this next segment.


In this wiki competition we want you to show us how far these possibilities can be taken on the Nokia Asha software platform using just the platform, or in combination with remote sensing devices. It’s your chance to make the world a healthier place.

We're holding another wiki article competition!

Competitors will submit articles, tutorials and guides that show how to use the features of the updated Nokia Imaging SDK with both C++ and C# APIs, and also insight and guidance on how to best use the increased screen resolution and size on Nokia's larger devices. Winners will be among the first to receive the stunning new Nokia Lumia 1520.

Check out Nokia Imaging and Big UI Wiki Competition 2013Q4 for all the details.

COM winner for October: Glenn Versweyveld

Glenn Versweyveld (Depechie ) has been selected as COM winner for October.

Over the last few months Glenn has written a number of really interesting and useful articles. The wiki moderation team were particularly impressed by Tabbed interface with Pivot animation for Windows Phone, which shows how to create the kind of "tabbed" UI found in the Windows Phone Twitter app.

We also like How to keep a UI element in view when scrolling a page in Windows Phone and Image scrolling synced with large text scrolling which show different approaches to displaying images alongside text. He is continuing the theme with Image manipulation to show more text (still in draft).

We'll be sending Glenn a Nokia Lumia 925 in the next few days! Please join me in congratulating him on the discussion boards.

Next month we've got another great Lumia device for our Wiki Contributor of the Month. That could be one of our great contributors from last month or it could be you: all you need to do is contribute useful articles, example codes, tutorials, or significantly shape up the existing ones!
