CREATIVITY: Nokia releases Nokia Refocus for Windows Phone - Gives you back Control of the Focus
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:55 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

Nokia just launched Nokia Refocus, an app it showed first time at its recent "Nokia World" in Abu Dhabi. Nokia Refocus is a pretty clever app, which lets users take a photo first and choose what to focus later. It's perfect when shooting close-ups of a subject because it allows to show depth in photos, and then change focal point at any time. It also offers great effects like All in focus and Colour pop. When done, interactive Refocus photos can be shared via social media, E-Mail and messaging - all it needs is a Microsoft SkyDrive account which is part of Windows Phone anyway. The application first uploads the refocus photos to SkyDrive and then creates a link that can be shared with friends so they can play around and change the focus themselves.

AVAILABLE: Vine announces Vine for Windows Phone Launch - Comes with Live Tile Integration [UPDATE]
Posted by Arne Hess - at 16:34 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

First time mentioned by Nokia, as well as a second time, it took Twitter's Vine a little bit longer but as the short video service just announced, it's finally here and soon available for Windows Phone. Not yet downloadable from Microsoft's Windows Phone Market, Vine just unveiled in a blog posting that "today, we're launching Vine for Windows Phone, making it easy for even more people to capture and share life in motion". That said, Vine for Windows Phone works the same as on other platforms by taping and holding the screen to create short, looping videos with sound. Camera tools, like grid and ghost, are said to help shoot like a pro. But not only the main camera is supported but also the front camera for selfies.

Posted by Arne Hess - at 19:53 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

Sure enough, Microsoft will release anytime (next year) Windows Phone 8.1, which is expected to follow the latest Windows Phone 8 GDR3 release and is even said to somehow unify the Windows RT and Windows Phone 8 codebase - in some way. However, as a recently published screenshot shows now, Microsoft seems to be already beyond planning and is dog-food'ng it already ("dog food" is Microsoft's term for Alpha and early Beta builds and tests). The published screenshot from a Windows Phone app called "FB Pages Manager WP" shows firmware version numbers greater today's known Windows Phone, showing several Windows Phone version from 8.1.12115.0 up to Windows Phone 8.10.12236.0.
