This was meant to go up earlier in the week but back to uni means I’ve not had the luxury of blogging as much as I’d like. I showed you guys an app last year where you could run an app that mimicked Lumia Amber’s Glance screen (as well as some notification centre stuff that […]
Dear MNB Readers! Nokia currently has a Windows tablet, the excellent Nokia Lumia 2520 that is powered by the Windows RT operating system (OS). Windows RT is a great OS considering Microsoft’s intentions. Windows RT looks great, runs smoothly and provides features in a tablet form factor that you cannot get with an iOS or Android tablet. The major difference between Windows RT and […]
A prominent feature in the latest Nokia Imaging SDK 1.1 is called Interactive Foreground Segmentation Chromakey, its an API that a developer can use in the camera view finder to let his users pick a single color and have it replaced with a picture even before the end user takes the shot, which means the user can adjust the framing of the background […]

Rudy Huyn tweets that he’s made yet another app, a cloud storage one during MWC. He says this will be available tonight. I’m not quite sure specifically which cloud storage this will be for. Reddit isn’t either and is hoping it might be called 6box (drop box) or even work with all the […]

Over at XDA, a dev has begun publishing that he has been working on getting the Nokia Apps working on non-Nokia X devices. You may think its crazy given that the devices aren’t out yet, but bear in mind several developers (mainly in Asia) have had these phones for months, as well Nokia having quite […]

Another announcement at the Microsoft press conference was the fact that the popular app (on other platforms) for Facebook messaging will soon be arriving on WP8.

Here’s a video promo to Nokia’s Modern Mayor Game. A take on the SIM City franchise. The trailer looks intriguing but at 47MB, it appears it’s more of a 2D take. It’s free to play, but there are some downloadable content that you can purchase too.

An update to the “Nokia Touch” app in the settings list brings along a neat new feature, the ability to disable the vibration/haptic feedback on the windows navigation keys (all three). This is useful for some out there who don’t really like the vibration; I myself enjoy it and will keep it there, but if […]
Earlier we got a look at the new Swype like keyboard for WP 8.1, courtesy of unleashthephones; no we get a look at the action center (notification center) in action, courtesy of them as well. It performs as expected, with being accessible by swiping down from the top of the screen (apparently pulling halfway down […]

Whatsapp is one app that a lot of people rely on, unfortunately its performance on WP isn’t exactly the best out there; with random crashes, delayed notifications and a pretty ugly chat UI.
