For all other apps, aside from transparent tiles support, HERE is introducing a new kind of account; the  HERE account. This replaces the previous Nokia account Windows Phone users would have made use of for HERE purposes. You can migrate your data from your previous account to your new HERE account if you so choose. If you would prefer not to, be aware that Nokia accounts are getting the axe soon. The HERE accounts will be used to keep your details and collections in sync as you move from device to device.
