It was yesterday that Daniel told you all about the imminent launch of Kaspersky Internet Security for Windows Phone. The announcement came from the Kaspersky Labs at Mobile World Congress. Since Windows Phone is a pretty secure mobile OS, we weren’t too sure what exactly the app would do. Now that it’s available in the Windows Phone Store we have a better idea of what their just released app, Kaspersky Safe Browser, does.

The app was one of the most requested features to have a standalone, regularly updated app for Windows Phone and now it will be open to all users going forward.

If you like the selective color editing to your Windows Phone photos, you need to try the Windows Phone app Sense the Color. The photography app allows you to reveal only the colors you want in your photographs. Prefer only the colors in a flower to shine through while leaving the rest of your photograph in black and white, Sense the Color can do that.

Sense the Color has an easy user interface, the ability to share edited images within the app, and is a creative way to add a little pop to your photos. While I wouldn't mind seeing a few more editing tools added to the app, Sense the Color is a welcomed addition to the Windows Phone photography library.

Although the main news at Mobile World Congress from Nokia will center on Nokia X, we’re sure the Lumia makers will have some new Windows Phone apps and goodies on hand.

Indeed, Nokia via their Vine channel, have posted a short movie showing a woman taking "selfies" with her Lumia 1020. While some have jumped on this as a new device announcement – it’s not – we’re confident that this is for an Imagin8 app, used for adding digital effects in real time. Think of Kinect, but for your phone.
