It allows you to shoot stabilized videos from 1x speed to all the way up to 32x speed. We tested it on our Lumia 930. Want to see it in action? Take a look at our hands-on video.

Should you buy the HP Spectre x360?

HP's latest high-end convertible laptop is quite the looker. Here are a few reasons it might be worth picking up.

The Spectre x360 made a big splash at Mobile World Congress as a well-built laptop which doubled as a tablet. It was made commercially available as of the announcement, and since then plenty of users have had time to dig in and review the HP x360. We've gathered up some of the best ones here, so you can figure out if it's worth taking the plunge. Our take on the device is in here too, of course, plus the comments are bound to have a few readers who have had experience with the latest Spectre.

Microsoft has been a bit quiet on the HoloLens front since its surprise announcement back in January. The future of holographic computing and Windows 10 is expected to get more attention later in April when Build kicks off in California.

In case you were worried though that Microsoft was not 'all in' on HoloLens, you do not have to look much further than their jobs listing for the project. Going through the listings, and we can see dozens and dozens of job requests for the now-open project for future computing. From engineers (software, electrical) to system architects, producers, and technical artists, Microsoft is hiring as many holographic experts as they can.

GPS Tracking 4D is a new Windows Phone app from the developers of GPS Voice Navigation and with the support of the AppCampus project. The app allows you to share your location with friends and family, as well as see their location from your Windows Phone. Much like you can do with Life360 or similar Windows Phone apps.

In just tinkering with GPS Tracking 4D for a short period, it comes across as a very appealing Windows Phone app. It can give parents a little peace of mind knowing where their children are and easy to use when you need to share your location with friends/family on where to meet up.

T-Mobile says the map on its website is based on "200 million actual customer usage data points every day" rather than just best estimates of its coverage.
