Nokia Software Updater is a simple program that lets you update your Nokia cell phone and find out about new updates for the apps you use.
Nokia is the main company responsible for the production of Windows phones, which are phones that come with a Windows operating system. Though not as competitive as iPhone products and Android phones are, these phones come with useful apps that shoppers love. Cortana lets you use voice controls to check the weather, surf the web or even get driving directions. It even has its own news app that lets you view political, entertainment, world and crime news right on your phone.
Even if you have an older Nokia phone, you can opt for automatic updates. Your phone will perform regular scans and let you know when updates become available. With Nokia Software Update, you can skip those scans and instantly find out if your apps need new content on your computer screen. All you need is a micro USB cord to connect your phone to your computer.
The software then scans your phone to find out which apps and programs you use before giving you a list of required and optional updates. You select which updates you want, the software starts loading those updates on your phone, and then it tells you when the process is complete. The software will even show you a list of all the updates it performed.
A great feature of this software is that it lets you sync your phone to your computer. You never again need to worry about losing an important video or a family photo when you drop or damage your phone. Every time that you load the software, it will ask if you want to sync your content. It will then save copies of your content on your computer. You can also use the software to access the Nokia Suite to get help using your phone.
Before you can use Nokia Software Updater, though, you must save a copy on both your phone and computer. Installing the software can take more time than you would like, and you'll need to reboot your phone once the process finishes. It's also worth noting that it doesn't work with all phones and that it may cause hardware issues in some older models. Nokia Software Updater is best for those with models from the late 2000s who want to update their phones.
