The official Twitter app for Windows Phone, which received a hearty update a few months ago, has just been bumped to version 2.1 and it’s quite significant too.

The big new feature is integrated Lens support with filters. That means you can snap a photo and quickly post it to your Twitter account (or accounts, as multiple ones are supported) and add some nifty filters like Vignette, Warm, Cool, 1963, 1972, Golden Hour, Antique, and the classic Black and White.

Why isn't mobile gaming better? - Talk Mobile

275

The quantity and quality of mobile games have exploded over the past few years. Game developers have been blessed with rapidly improving hardware and an ever-growing customer base that's becoming more comfortable with the idea of spending money for mobile entertainment. Mobile development studios like Rovio and Glu along with independent, one-man developers like Loren Brichter of Letterpress and Andreas Illiger of Tiny Wings are playing on the same field for the same dollars as long-time game studios like Electronic Arts and Rockstar.

But while the customers and dollars might be directed towards any one of those warriors, the battlefield itself is segmented. Is it better for a developer to target the expansive iOS or Android ecosystems and risk all of their work being lost in the fog of app storefront warfare, or should they go for less-populated venues like BlackBerry and Windows Phone, where they can be the big fish in the small digital pond? Do they try and support those features unique to specific platforms, like BBM or Game Center, or do they hit only the most common features across all platforms? And how do those answers change if they’re small indie developers, or powerhouse studios?

We’ve known for a little while that the upcoming Lumia ‘EOS’, Nokia’s first foray into a massive-shooter for Windows Phone, will come in the same color lineup as the current 920 that it is based off of. Yesterday we saw the phone in black but we know yellow and other variants are available too.

Now a new image has leaked of what looks to be the EOS in a glossy red finish. This isn’t the full phone, of course, but rather just the polycarbonate shell which is evidently in early production tests in some Nokia factory.
