Launched earlier this spring, Swarm was a little late to the Windows Phone party but at least it was always planned to get support. When Swarm finally arrived, it had quite a few bugs and usability issues out the gate, although the developers were keen on making things right.

SensorCore is the technology made by Nokia in conjunction with Qualcomm to enable tracking of your location, steps, and level of activity using your Windows Phone while not killing your battery. Found on the Lumia 630, Lumia 635, Lumia 730, Lumia 735, Lumia 830, Lumia 930, and Lumia 1520, SensorCore is also open to third-party developers to make new apps that leverage the tech.
