In this era of cut-throat competition between the producers of Smartphones and Operating Systems, the Mobile applications has a very important and integral role to play. Every Smartphone/OS giant is coming up with some unique mobile app everyday to attract the new customers and retain the older ones. The Mobile apps market for any OS has became the key aspect of selecting and buying a Smartphone today. Nokia has come up with one mobile app known as the “Nokia Drop”.

Nokia Drop app enables you to easily transfer links and pictures from computer’s web browser to your mobile device. Now, you must not misinterpret this app as the alternative to dropbox app, but sounds good enough. The difference between the two apps is that while dropbox is for all sorts of files, Nokia Drop is for only the essentials, like quickly sending a url to your phone, or an image, for example.

Nokia Drop App Features :

  • Change your phone’s wallpaper
  • Send image as a file to your phone
  • Send URL to your phone
