The future of mobile creation and productivity - Talk Mobile

175

All this week we've talked about mobile creativity and productivity, be it what we can do with cameras or speakers or business apps. Today we're going to talk about those same things, but not so much what we can do today, but what we'll be able to do tomorrow. It's time to tackle the future of creativity and mobile business.

There's no doubt that the sensors, processors, radios, screens, and batteries that comprise our phones will improve over time. It's the inexorable march forward of technology. These better bits and the inevitable new bits will make things faster and open new avenues of computing. But what will we be able to do with these new things?

Just what does the future of mobile photography look like, and will it be good enough for us to never regret leaving the point-and-shoot at home? Is it lagging technology or corporate resistance that's holding back mobile video? And how can our smartphones make us even more productive while on the go?

Nokia updates Glance screen, removes mention of Notifications

90

Last week Nokia moved Glance out into the open in Settings, which we covered in detail. The update was to make discoverability of Nokia’s many custom settings that much easier but alas, there was a prescient sign of things to come with the change: a new toggle for Notifications on Glance.

We speculated at the time Nokia was going to be adding Notifications to the Glance screen, enabling email and SMS visual alerts. Not a day later did we see the GDR3 and Nokia Bittersweet shimmer leak in our forums confirming our assumption.

Windows Phone Central App Roundup: Photo Editors
Windows Phone Central App Roundup: Photo Editors

As someone who has spent a lot of time behind a camera, it's nice to see our Windows Phone cameras and photography apps improve over the years. The hardware has well passed the novelty stage back when VGA was the only capture resolution and are now easily capable of taking noteworthy images.  Our Windows Phone cameras have become very handy and capable means to capture the moment.

The Windows Phone apps supporting our cameras have equally improved significantly from apps that simple slap creative filters on your images to apps that have Photoshop-like capabilities to not only add filters but also to make exposure adjustments and other quality control edits.  

We picked four Windows Phone photo editing apps in this week's roundup that go beyond special effects and filters to help us make the most of our cameras and the images they capture.
