Nokia is continuing its cautious immersion into the heady world of apps - following the launch of Ovi Store earlier this year, it's just announced a cool new beta, the location-based info app Here and Now.
Here and Now allows you to check the local weather and see events that are on in your area, filtered by type. Presumably the effectiveness of that depends on the comprehensiveness of some local events database.
More services will be added before the app goes alpha, and Here and Now will come preinstalled on new Nokia devices released later this year. For now, it's downloadable for Symbian S60 3rd edition devices from Nokia's Beta Labs.
