Danas su svi korisnici Nokia BetaLabs aplikacija i usluga dobili mail kako se sadržaj te stranice seli na Microsoftovu adresu uservioce.com, odnosno preciznije http://lumiabetaapps.uservoice.com. Tamo se već sada mogu pronaći aplikacije koje su još uvijek u beta fazi testiranja poput Nokia Camera Beta, Nokia Chat, App Social Beta i Nokia Conference Beta. Na originalnoj stranici http://betalabs.nokia.com se još mogu pronaći neke beta aplikacije za Symbian, MeeGo te s40 uređaje poput SoundTracker radija ali tamo neće još dugo ostati. Microsoft je najavio kako će se originalna BetaLabs stranica ugasiti za manje od mjesec dana, odnosno 05.09. a domena će ostati i dalje te preusmjeravati korisnike na novu stranicu.
Microsoft se polagano rješava Nokia ostavštine te ako želite koristiti neku od aplikacija za odbačene platforme, imate još mjesec dana za preuzeti ih.
U nastavku pročitajte cijelu poruku korisnicima.
Dear Nokia Beta Labs community members,
We’ve come a long way since our humble beginnings in 2007, in large part due to your enthusiasm and eager participation in our beta trials. Thank you for that! Now, please join us in preparing for the next chapter.
Beginning this month we will start hosting all new beta trials for Lumia apps at a new site, based on services provided by UserVoice. You can preview that site at http://lumiabetaapps.uservoice.com
That site will be the new home for beta trials for Lumia apps. There you will find info about ongoing trials, instructions to install beta apps, and notes about app features and known issues. And for each beta app there is a feedback forum where you can give feedback about the apps, vote on others’ feedback, and interact with the teams developing the apps.
Trialing beta apps with passionate lead users remains a key phase of our product development and helps us to build better products. By switching to a new site built on the UserVoice service we focus on what’s most important – gathering feedback and interacting with people testing our apps, like you. At the same time the end-to-end experience of participating in beta trials should become simpler.
The Nokia Beta Labs site that is now available at http://betalabs.nokia.comwill be discontinued on September 5, 2014, and all links to the betalabs.nokia.com domain will redirect to the new site. All content hosted at the Nokia Beta Labs site will no longer be available after the site is discontinued. However, many of the trials ongoing now at Nokia Beta Labs will continue at the new site and you will be able to continue giving feedback and interacting there. For example:
You can find more info about this change posted on the new site, including a tutorial about how the new site works. We’ll post more information to both sites as we prepare for the switchover. Additionally, you’re welcome to follow us on Twitter to stay up to date on all news and alerts related to our beta trials.
