Apps

In 2014, the ability to share files with other smartphone users, regardless of platform, is one of the top features that users want available to them. Sure, there is email and SMS as the old standbys, but increasingly people want direct ways to offer a song, photo, video, or documents.

Send Anywhere (send-anywhere.com) launched in early 2013 on iOS and Android, and now a port of the app by the company is available on Windows Phone. The free service works by uploading to a server the intended file, generating a numeric code, which you then give to the recipient. Using the same app, the receiver enters the unique code and retrieves the file to download to their device.

Send Anywhere for Windows Phone is not a pretty port, but it works. Graphics overlap on the right edges, and the stodgy UI looks extremely basic. However, putting aside aesthetic concerns, the app does what it is intended to do, send those files.

My Top Windows Phone Photography Apps

Windows Phone Central App Roundup: Photography Apps

While it may be a coin toss as to which genre of apps, weather or photo, are more numerous in the Windows Phone Store there is little doubt that we are fortunate to have plenty of quality choices with both.

I have got several photography apps installed on my Windows Phone and this week's roundup is going to focus on some of my favorite photo editors. These are photo apps that I have found helpful for quick fixes of photos as well as apps that can add a creative flair to images.

Now before you pass out the pitch forks and torches, there are plenty of photo apps out there that are solid Windows Phone apps such as Fhotoroom, Nokia's Creative Studio, , ProShot, Phototastic and even Fantasia Painter. While these are all quality apps, the apps in this week's roundup are ones that I currently find myself using with regularity.

6tag updated to support Instagram backend changes

Earlier on Friday, popular third-party Instagram app, 6tag, stopped working. Don't worry, because a fix has just been released. Just make sure to get the latest version of 6tag from the Windows Phone Store. Superstar developer, Rudy Huyn, said Instagram has changed some value format in the backend, which caused the errors. He was quick to fix the problem, so go update the app and continue uploading those selfies!

Samsung so far has been mum on the update to Windows Phone 8.1, with not a single handset worldwide getting the OS refresh, including Verizon's recent high-end ATIV SE, which seems built for 8.1.

If there were any doubt of Samsung's commitment, even if it is half-hearted, users can now put their worries aside as the Korean company has a new app on the store dubbed ATIV Clock. Ironically, it is only for Windows Phone 8.1, as the new OS gives developers the ability to update the Live Tile in real-time.

Yesterday, I did a deep dive into the Duo Ultrapixel camera on the HTC One for Windows in an attempt to combat some of the negative pushback from Lumia users. One app that I did not mention in that coverage is HTC Video Highlights, as it was tangential to the camera's performance.

What is Video Highlights? For Lumia users, it is akin to Lumia Storyteller, but it does it a bit differently.

Monochromatic joins the ranks of the many Windows Phone photo editors and hopes to garner some attention with its simple layout and core editing features. Editing tools include cropping, exposure controls, vignette application and a few tonal filters. You also have an in-house camera app just in case you need to snap a quick shot while in the editor.

Monochromatic is not a feature rich editor such as Photoshop Express but the Windows Phone photo editor does come across a nice option when you need to do a quick, simple edit of your images.
