Spotted: MasterCard App For Windows Phone 8

I’m not sure if this has been written/posted by others (did a Google search, found nothing), but I just discovered the MasterCard app for Windows Phone 8. Ben Rudolph shot a video, showing off the new Nokia Lumia 820 and Lumia 920, and I spotted it on the 920!

Ben was showing how “fast” the Lumia 920’s display is (it comes with a PureMotion HD+ display, Nokia’s proprietary technology like CBD), and while scrolling up and down on the Live Tiles, I spotted the MasterCard tile at 1.10-11. I watched it half a dozen times, seeing Ben scrolls so fast.

So, that’s MasterCard app for Windows Phone 8 / Lumia 920. Oh don’t worry, I’m pretty sure it won’t be a Nokia Lumia exclusive (even if for a short while), because well, it’s an important app. Much more important than the benefit Nokia would derive by making it a Lumia-exclusive (if we assume Nokia helped bring the app).

Currently, MasterCard has apps only for iOS and Android (listed on its official website, here).

Ben also shows how awesome Nokia’s PureView technology on the Lumia 920 is, so make sure you watch the video for that as well.
