Wifi Remote Play released for Nokia X

I have released Wifi Remote Play on Nokia Store, making it available for Nokia's new Android-based Nokia X platform.

No changes were required, the same APK file works automatically (I'm not using any Google Play services, so it should be no different to any other variant of Android, such as Samsung's Touchwiz). I've briefly tested this on Nokia's Remote Device Access, but I don't have a real Nokia X to test it on - so please let me know of any problems!... read more

Downloads by platform

I'm pleased that the number of downloads for Wifi Remote Play has passed 800,000 :) One thing I have found interesting is the staggering split between platforms:

That's the downloads for the first 30 days on each platform. In numbers, that's:

Android: 3363
Symbian: 347287

The peak daily downloads was 14442 for Symbian, 200 for Android. Symbian has gradually declined since then - the daily downloads on day 30 was 9972. Android on the other hand fell sharply when it fell of the "Top New" list, with the day 30 downloads being 53.... read more
