The Nokia Lumia exclusive collection of applications (and a single game) continues to grow. At the 2012 Developer Summit, Nokia announced four new applications that will be exclusive to Lumia devices: Camera Extras, Contact Share, Counters, and PlayTo. Each application will bring great new features to the Lumia Windows Phone lineup, both current and future devices. The four announced applications will become available beginning this week, in a phased release.
