Additionally, Jawbone is preparing to open its UP software to third parties, specifically, to other hardware manufacturers. This means that Jawbone would be able to collect data into its app from rivals like FitBit, as well as smartwatches running Android Wear, and Apple's long-rumored iWatch, according to Re/code.

'Daddy Was A Thief' is now a universal Windows app after a year with iOS and Android

72

Released over a year ago on Android and iOS, the game 'Daddy Was A Thief' is now available for Windows Phone too. Since it is a universal app, you can also play it on your Windows tablet or PC. This is not another endless runner game. It's actually an endless faller. The goal is to keep smashing through floors to escape after a bank robbery. It's a great little time-waster. Watch our gameplay video.

Here is why Ambient Weather is my favorite Windows 8.1 forecast app

45

Although there is no shortage of fine weather apps for Windows Phone, when it comes to Windows 8.1, things are a bit different. There is a selection of weather apps, but from my experience, there is a dearth of quality ones that highlight the Modern look of Windows for tablets and PCs. I know everyone cites Bing Weather as his or her go-to app, and with good reason. Assuming, however, you want something different– and the ability to ditch ads – Ambient Weather is my choice these days.

Ambient Weather is not a new app, in fact, I have been using for nearly a year now. However, Ambient Weather has been getting a nice amount of updates lately, and this mini-review is long overdue in highlighting this fantastic app.

Pinpoint is a new addicting game that will test your geographical knowledge

21

There's a new location game called Pinpoint on Windows Phone from the team behind Foundbite. As you know, or at least should know, Foundbite is an exclusive Windows Phone app that allows you to capture the atmosphere of a place, event or experience. It does this by combining images with audio to create some cool clips called Foundbites. This new game uses those Foundbites and their location data to make you guess their whereabouts.

Adobe's video apps will soon support HiDPI displays

21

Adobe's Creative Cloud video apps will soon offer proper support for the high resolution HiDPI displays available on modern Windows laptops like the Dell XPS 15. The apps have been stuck in low-res mode for what seems like an eternity (even if the Retina laptops are really just a few years old at this point), and so soon users of Adobe Premiere Pro CC, After Effects CC, Prelude CC, and the rest of the Adobe video suite will soon be enjoying true Retina quality to their work.

First look at MSN rebranding for Windows Phone apps suggests it is subtle

310

This morning, Microsoft detailed plans to push their Bing apps, like Weather, Finance, Food, News, to the MSN branding. Microsoft started this process some time ago when they first ditched 'Bing' in the name of those apps, and instead kept them with just their category-generic names.

During the Microsoft #moreLumia event last week, I showed you folks how the Microsoft Weather app and Lumia Denim play nicer together. Specifically, Glance gets what look to be third-party app support, letting other Lock screen apps appear on the Glance screen (see it above on a Lumia 830).

I also dug deeper into the Weather app as it is called 'Weather beta' in the app listing. This section is where I first noticed the 'MSN Weather' name pop up as seen in the About section of the app.
