WRC powered by NOKIA
With Nokia now title sponsor of WRC are there any plans for Nokia users to have 'special features' from the partnership with WRC?. Maybe exclusive apps etc.
As a former Nokia stalwart who has moved to another make, do you think the sponsorship and anything that goes with that will be enough to tempt rallying folk back to Nokia? I remember days when it seemed the entire service park personnel carried a Nokia now it seems split between Apple I phone and Blackberry.

Yes, this app is perfect.. I almost hit the wall with my head while walking and looking splits and Tänak stopped at the beginning of the stage and then moving again :-) I was the one ho bought the phone just purely because of this app.. the best 270 EUR I have invested in last year :-)Colins Crest = Möldri Mätas

Nokia are on a big push, but will probably push even hard when their windows 8 phones come out in a few months
Windows Phone 8 to get NFC, HD and Skype â€¢ The Register

I have WRC app on my E7 and i must say its awesome! Its the best way to follow rally! Its better than having PC in front of you, cause you see everything so well with it; GPS tracking of each car with split screen splits, stories, videos etc... Amazing.
I like my phone too. Best QWERTY out there

Here you can see some screenshots, it is called "WRC Live":
WRC Live available on Nokia Marketplace
Apparently this is app is also available for windows phones, so I wonder if it is not possible the emulate this on a windows PC? Would be great for anyone, altough Nokia wouldn't like that I guess.
Pity that sports are sometimes restricted to groups, like in this case Nokia (high-end phone) users or paytv, ... I don't think VW will sell more cars because people have to pay extra to have these features. Haven't they learned anything from putting F1 on PayTv some years ago?Mini-Z News!!! --- No guts, no glory!

Are there any WRC (2012) apps available for Android phones? I'm new to this smart-phone thing, but I can't seem to find any (but I might just be looking in the wrong places!).
I assume this Nokia one doesn't work on Android??

You can't download the Nokia one. You can download the WRC app (can't remember the exact name of it, I have recently switched from Android to iPhone). There is also iRally. Do a search for WRC and see what comes up!

Thanks. There's one called "The Official WRC App 2011 - North One Television". Does this one still work in 2012, considering the demise of North One?

Really not sure to be honest, I always used iRally. That combined with Jbmarcus21's routes in Google earth give me everything I want

Have had about 5-6 Nokias, but not anymore, they've been overtaken. Android, Apple & Blackberry seem to be the most popular.....WRC: On the long way to Recovery............
Is there a better sound than that of Porsche engined Flat-6 ???
