Description

Start the desktop mode of your Nokia Lumia – the current time, weather and your next appointment are always visible on the screen! Desktop Mode When placed into the official Nokia Wireless Charging Stand, your Nokia Lumia smartphone activates an optimized standby screen that shows the time, weather and your next upcoming appointment. Our Desktop Mode app activates the optimized mode anytime you want, without the need to purchase the charging stand!

With this app you can pin a shortcut directly to your startscreen - customize its size and position to quickly switch to desktop mode when your phone lies next to you. NFC Place an NFC sticker on your table. From now on, simply tap it with your phone to immediately launch desktop mode! Use existing & compatible NFC tags, or order tags through this app. Use Desktop Mode to configure the tag. Speech Your voice activates the desktop mode! Press and hold the Windows button on your device and say "Desktop Mode Start" to immediately launch desktop mode. Compatibility Desktop Mode works on all Nokia Lumia phones – please make sure your Nokia Accessories app is the latest version (updates are delivered through the Store). As the base functionality is based on specific features only found in Nokia devices, this app does not work on non-Nokia Windows Phones. NFC functionality is only available on NFC capable phones.

I wanted to love this, and I'm still trying to, but the app simply isn't practical on LCD-based devices like the Lumia 920. The amount of battery the app consumes outpaces the rate at which the phone charges -- both on the DT-900 charging plate, and the DT-910 charging stand. In test after test, the phone loses charge at a rate of approximately 10% an hour. Further, my Lumia got hot -- really, really hot! -- after prolonged periods on the charging plate with Desktop mode running. In short, this app is definitely not worth it if you have an LCD Lumia like the 920. I'm certain it works wonderfully on AMOLED Lumias.

You don't need a charging pad to get this to work. You need the Nokia accessories app and the app opens within the app or you can make a NFC tag to open it. Works great on my 920. Nice job.😊😊😊

I'm beside myself. Make a payable version of this app so I can support you. I'll pay for Car Mode too. Why do my keys stay lit in Desktop Mode? Do I need to use NFC Tag to fix this? I already ordered a dozen of them :) Thanks greatly

Works great on my 822 once I installed the Nokia accessories app. My battery charge gets better on my charging stand, not worse, with this app running. (Same is true for Nokia Drive when phone is plugged in. Some people say their phone loses charge, but not mine.) The app's screen saving motion should minimize burn in. Time as well as date would be nice.
