So i have the lumia 800 and it has a marketplace section called "Nokia Collection".

I see apps such as "Nokia Maps", "Nokia Drive", "CNN", "Nokia Climate Mission" listed, but there are a bunch of other apps published by Nokia that dont appear there: "Play To", "Nokia Trailers", "The Caddie +" etc

Surely it would make sense for all these apps to appear in the Nokia Collection?

If you tap on Nokia drive under nokia collection and then tap on 'more from nokia corporation', you will see the missing apps that you have mentioned above.

this would be a great question to ping @NokiaNZ about on twitter and ask whats up

there are even some Nokia apps that are published into the US Marketplace and not NZ, but that is different to your problem

I find the same thing with some apps also. I've asked the question previously, but will chase for an official answer and come back to you next week.

just seems silly to go to the trouble of paying for or branding these apps, and then not putting them where people can see them. there must be a special flag that needs to be set cause it obviously doesnt just still all the apps published by "Nokia Corporation" there (which would seem logical)
