Formula 1 season is starting


There is an nice app from MTV (no, not the music television. This is a media broadcasting company in Finalnd) called MTV Teema. This is the Windows 10 PC/tablet version. This app gives you all the backgrounds of the coming F1 season (in Finnish language only).

We are hoping great success for Kimi Räikkönen and Waltteri Bottas during the whole season 2016.

This app can be found for Android and iOS as well on their stores.

HERE Maps bye, bye

For me this was not a big suprise that HERE Maps are leaving Windows Store. The car companies who bought HERE from NOKIA are of course concentrating on their focus to integrate the HERE technology to automotive industry.


There are alternatives. The pre-installed Windows Maps app is great and I am already testing the next generation Windows Maps app with the Windows Redstone 14291 preview build and it is looking even better. So do not worry, you won’t get lost.

HERE will be available until March 29th in Windows Store.

Other great map apps alternatives for Windows 10 are:

So, rest assured that with these apps or with Windows Maps you will find your way, where ever you want to go.
