Nokia Weather & Calendar App no longer available in WPPfD 8.1? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Nokia devices have a hidden "Weather & Calendar" app that is activated by scanning the NFC tag embedded into the DT-910 wireless desktop charger.

    A similar "Driving Mode" app exists for the car charger.

    These apps can also be activated by other Nokia users with the help of Windows Store apps like the ones discussed here: http://allaboutwindowsphone.com/flow/item/18137_Desktop_Mode_app_activates_hid.php

    After the Windows Phone 8.1 Dev Preview update, these continued to work fine - until a few weeks ago.

    Now when I scan the NFC tag I see a dialog that allows me to specify which app triggers - but does not offer the old Weather & Calendar app as an option.

    Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

    What is the fix?
