Which do you prefer name wise? Windows Camera or Lumia Camera?

Which do you prefer name wise? Windows Camera or Lumia Camera?

| June 29, 2015 | 6 Replies

Nokia Camera became Lumia Camera under Microsoft. Now there’s Windows Camera. Is that replacing Lumia Camera or Microsoft Camera? Also…is this simply so all Windows Devices can use that camera app (i.e. Surface) or for other brands? What does this mean for Lumia? I think possibly just having one unified interface would be best.

You have to go back to 8.1 via Windows Phone Recovery Tool and then update via Windows Insider. This is due to a migration bug. Instead of waiting for that to get fixed, you can do […]

Today at Apple’s event, they announced a more proactive Siri. Like your Lumia, Siri can tell you about traffic when you’re leaving for work. I think Siri also looks at your calendar (looks at locations) and also gives info about traffic times. App wise, a bit like Nokia Z-launcher, iOS will suggest apps based on […]

The benefit of either is really in ease of use, reliability of use and security. The first time Apple showed their version off, it wasn’t exactly the best implementation – with some reports of […]
