The Facebook app for WP is a bit of a conundrum, on one hand it deals with the metro layout very nicely; on the other hand it is occasionally usually, very clunk. In an effort to change that Microsoft have built up and redesigned a second app (called Facebook Beta for now). So far the app […]

Lumiapps: Lytro Camera App “Refocus” lets you choose focus points AFTER taking the picture!

| April 30, 2013 | 27 Replies

Do you remember when we talked about Lytro, a camera that would allow you to choose your focus points as and when you needed it AFTER you took the shot? It wasn’t something I’d expect coming to a camera phone anytime soon, so colour me surprised when someone made it into an app that actually […]

I wasn’t too sure myself about the practicalities or applications IllumiRoom would have for me based on their first demo, but this latest demo really intrigues me as it does appear to enhance the gaming experience that would otherwise stay on the screen only. I love the Radial Wobble, whereby pulsewaves are visible in your […]

Check out this ad from Microsoft for the Nokia Lumia 920, with the tag theme: Don’t Fight, Switch. It starts off with someone dissing the large galaxy phone (hey, we’ll be going phablet soon by the end of the year too no :P) . iPhone users taunt galaxy users, whilst Android owners retaliate. Fighting ensues.The […]

  Raid kills bugs dead. Seems like Accenture emptied an entire CAN of Raid on the VERY REAL HSPA+ bug that terrorized Nokia 808 PureView users worldwide. Here is a little back story via a true and emotional comment that I wrote over at AllAboutSymbian: Pardon my openness, I was at my wit’s end with no hope of a solution […]

Quick heads up on another but quite thorough comparison between the O.I.S. found on Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC One. I’m really surprised how smooth the video is when switching from the One to the 920. Something interesting as you might have seen before from older Nokias is how low light video is initiated by […]

Smaller People Hub Tiles; Forthcoming Update, or Bad Render?

| April 28, 2013 | 14 Replies

In the Lumia 521 sales video on HSN they played a video promo for the Nokia “Flame”; the 521′s pre-release code name. In the promo they showed off the recent tiles in the people hub, which struck me as odd since it doesn’t match up with the current WP8 design, nor the previous WP7 design. […]

  There is no picture, just a story from Reddit whereby a store clerk (probably Verizon?) was met with another customer (who later turns out to be a Verizon exec?) who had a Nokia Lumia 928. The screen was said to be beautiful and noticeably lighter than the 920. Same (polycarbonate?) finish as the Nokia Lumia 920 […]
