Nokia Lumia Exclusive Apps - I thought they were free?

A bit sad as I see some of the exclusive apps for Nokia Lumia holders are not free.

So... are they exclusive to buy?  Or is that "offer" now over :/

All the core Nokia made ones are free. The ones that have a fee are the ones they got exclusivity on from other publishers (mostly just for a limited time).

Essentially anything Nokia made is free, all the licensed apps are paid.

 

Most of the licensed stuff is careface anyways, so I don't mind it >.<

from what I understand of the situation the way it works is Nokia helped with the cost of development for some of these apps so they have locked them to nokia devices however, the price of the app is still up to the developer. However, the Nokia made apps so far as i know are all free (Here maps, that sort of thing)

Yeah, i understand this now.

Things like Here Maps and such I take for granted as with Android, Google Maps comes as standard, so I naturally assumed some sort of mapping app did with Windows Phone too, therefore discounted that as an exclusive app.

 

I wonder why they didn't bother going with a Bing Maps app as standard.
