Nokia has introduced its Pulse application in November of last year, a software bit which allows users to keep in touch taking advantage of the GPS functionality inside phones. With Pulse you can check in to places and share that info with only a closed group of other users.
However, Nokia’s plans go beyond Nokia devices and those powered by Windows Phone 7. “These are social applications. To be social, you have to be on every platform”, said Basak Ozer, Nokia’s Lead for social and location applications. As such, Pulse will be coming soon to Android and iOS users too, though an exact launch date was not unveiled. However, Nokia Pulse — which is complementary to services like Facebook and Twitter — is not the only app the Finnish company has in mind for its social and location offerings.
