Nokia launches ash cloud tracker
Boat sailed, plane flown, horse bolted...
Proving it's still at the cutting edge, Nokia has rushed out an Ash Cloud Tracker application, available free from the Ovi store for those who still care where the Icelandic bugbear is.
While the application is no doubt of enormous value to the residents of Orkney and the Shetlands where restrictions are still in place, the rest of Europe has rather lost interest in the cloud since flights resumed and now the attention is on how quickly the airlines can get their planes and crew back into the right places.
But if you're really interested in tracking the cloud then you can get the app from the Ovi store by searching for "ash cloud".
Don't try "Eyjafjallajökull cloud", as that won't get you anywhere, except maybe impressing those nearby with your keyboard skills. ®
err, except it's not nokia, it's just on their rubbish app store
Quality reporting there, sparky.
It clearly says the app is by Bolser Agency. You are aware that Nokia don't develop the apps in the Ovi Store?
Not everything in Ovi is from Nokia!
Nokia is not the party that has created and released this app. Hint: there is a publisher field in the description.
And why's there no Saint Nokia icon?
Have you got an app for that?
OVI in Ashes
Its very very clever, its not just for Icelandic volcanoes ya see, its also able to detect the ash cloud predicted for when the OVI store finally gives up
