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.

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.

PhotoMic is a Windows Phone photo editor that gives you the ability to add text bubbles to your photos, creating a short story with your images. The app also has the option to create a collage from your photos that allows your images to take on a comic strip appearance.

PhotoMic has a wide range of templates, fonts and bubble callouts to help you customize your Windows Phone pics. You also have the ability to add an HDR or sketch effect filter to your final product before saving.

In using PhotoMic over the past couple of days, we found it to be a neat Windows Phone photography app for creating unique, fun photos.

Over the last week, some users have been experiencing issues with the WPCentral app for Windows Phone and our massive forums. Specifically, users are getting error messages when trying to access the feature through the app. I let you know last week about the problem, when we re-launched our mobile site, and that our developer Jay Bennett would address the issue as soon as he came back from vacation.

Today, version v4.5.5.915 is now live in the Store and brings along with it that hotfix for the forum issues. The update should resolve any connecting issues that people with Windows Phone 8 and higher were having.
