SERVICE: Nokia Music receives Feature Update with Favorite Artists and Notifications
Posted by Arne Hess - at 17:19 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

Today, Nokia announced a feature update for its Nokia Music, which is part of the company's Lumia Windows Phone 8s. The Nokia Music update now creates even more ways to enhance the listening experience by adding notifications and favorite artists to the mix. This allows to "like" favorite artists to further personalized music experience. Nokia Music will also like artists based on the playing history and the contents of the on-device music library. Nokia Music will let users also know if any new gigs are announced, so tickets can picked up early. Last but not least, to get the full experience, pining Nokia Music with Live Tile notifications to Home Screen isn't only showing the artwork for recently played tracks, but also shows alerts whenever there's news.

There's still no official Instagram Windows Phone app in sight but the good news is there's now a Windows Phone app available which is said to be somehow approved by Instagram and therefore uses the official APIs: 6tag. Previously known as 6tagram, 6tag is the yet most full featured Instagram app for Windows Phone. It features some of the original Instagram filters like XPro-II, Earlybird, Rise, Amaro, Hudson, Lo-Fi, Sutro, Toaster, Brannan, Inkwell, Walden, Hefe, Nashville, 1977, allows video recording and sharing with cut scenes (premium feature) and supports linear and radial Tilt-Shift with blur effects for extra depth of field.

Posted by Arne Hess - at 16:26 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

Initially announced and released exclusively for the Nokia Lumia 1020, Nokia's high-end camera phone, Nokia now followed-up with the promised Nokia Pro Cam release for the Lumia 920 and Lumia 925. The Nokia Pro Cam isn't just another camera user interface for Windows Phone 8 but it takes Windows Phone to the next level - to a kind of DSL camera UI. The camera also works in auto-mode, yet it has easy access to reframing where you can rotate, scale and change the aspect ratio of your pictures. But when you want to create that perfect composition, go to the manual controls to change exposure, shutter speed, ISO, white balance and focus. Current camera settings are clearly displayed on screen so you can see if you need to make any adjustments.
