Nokia 3D World Gaze updated at Nokia Beta Labs

Remember the app Nokia 3D World Gaze? It has just been updated at Nokia Beta Labs with quite a few new changes.

There’s some pinch zooming and inertia to make scrolling that little bit nicer, imperial units, new Anna app and more:

  • Added pinch zooming and inertia scrolling for the globe view.
  • A loading spinner is shown on the left when the app is loading the initial content set after launching. The content toolbar buttons appear after the content has finished loading. Previously there was no indication of when data was being loaded.
  • Added a new Settings panel that can be accessed by swiping inward on the left edge (view slides to the right).
  • Option for using miles for distances instead of kilometers (Settings panel).
  • Option for showing the amount of transferred data on-screen (Settings panel).
  • Previewer: items without a title will now correctly show author information.
  • Previewer: for items in the U.S., detailed location info is looked up using Geonames (state, street address). (Note: the web service may be offline intermittently.)
  • The label for the nearest city is now always visible, even in the bird view and when other labels are hidden.
  • Improved performance and stability of server backend and set up a backup server. The app will automatically try the backup server in case the main one cannot be reached or suddenly becomes unavailable.
  • New icon for the app in line with the overall Symbian Anna theme.

Cheers Sayantan  for the tip!
