Way back in December of last year Microsoft and design blog Core77 teamed up for the second time to launch another design contest. It was called App to the Future. The goal was to produce app designs for Windows Phone and eventually pair those designs with developers. Winners were announced in March and ever since we’ve been waiting to see those app designs come to fruition. One of those winners, Tide, is now available for download. Let’s check it out.

Sprint ATIV S Neo all but confirmed for Friday release

61

What started as a trickle has turned into a flood as more and more evidence is confirming a Friday, August 16th release for the much anticipated Sprint Samsung ATIV S Neo with Windows Phone 8. Earlier we had accessories begin to arrive in stores and then Samsung listed the device with full specs on their website. Now, Sprint store and Samsung reps are starting to talk about the flagship Sprint Windows Phone.

Reader of the site Michael V. went to his local Sprint store this evening and while the store employee did not know the release date, she did have an information packet on the device, as seen below. However, what is more revealing was that a Samsung representative was there (they often stop by for training and device support, like Nokia) and he was able to look up the date and confirm a Friday launch.

Video Tour: Official YouTube app for Windows Phone

228

Today saw the surprise (yet anticipated) reappearance of the Microsoft YouTube app for Windows Phone. This time the app evidently has the consent of Google, who took issue with some of the features in the app and had asked Microsoft to pull the original. The bold move by Microsoft though has evidently paid off—Google has finally agreed to what looks like most of Microsoft’s requests for the app.

Our readership requested a video tour of the app and since we’re here to serve, we have obliged. Granted, we’ve only had the app for less than 60 minutes, but we can show you the basic functionality and even a few changes from the previous 3.0 release.

OneShot for Windows Phone updated, adds new filters and nukes bugs

18

About two weeks ago we showed you guys and gals a new app for Windows Phone called OneShot. It’s a photography app that lets you take photos with real-time filters and adjust camera settings on the fly with a beautiful interface. OneShot is especially unique because it was one of the (if not the) first third-party app built using Nokia’s new Imaging SDK. The new update brings some features and improves performance. Let’s check it out.

Official YouTube app for Windows Phone 7 and 8 is back and now available

231

Earlier this year, Microsoft surprise its users by releasing its own YouTube app, complete with login and advanced management features of the popular streaming service. At the time, it was thought that Microsoft had come to an agreement with Google over the app, but as it turns out that was not the case. After some back and forth between the companies, Microsoft had agreed to pull the app as they work on a new, compliant version with Google.

Today, version 3.2.0.0 of YouTube is now live on the Store for Windows Phone 7.x and Windows Phone 8 devices.

The new app looks a lot like the app that was pulled and even includes an upload feature for posting videos directly to the service. That should reassure customers who believe the app would be stripped of functionality (one feature that seems to be missing is downloading of videos).

Quick Review: Terrapin faux-leather flip case for the Nokia Lumia 925

27

With all the Nokia Lumia 1020 cases we’ve been highlighting recently, we figured we would spread it out a bit and focus on the Nokia Lumia 925—a phone is dire need of protection. We say that because the Lumia 925 is probably the most elegant of all the Lumias but it is also fragile. The tradeoff for the cool, smooth aluminum is a frame that can be easily dented, scuffed or chipped.

Luckily, we have no less than five case reviews for you this week on the Lumia 925 with the first being from Terrapin. Their faux-leather flip case is a sophisticated “wallet” type that offers a decent amount of protection from drops but is also nice enough to wear with your finest dress clothes.

GeoPhoto for Windows Phone allows editing and adding of geotags to your memories

21

Have you ever looked at photos on your Windows Phone thinking where that image was taken? If the answer to that question is yes, GeoPhoto is an app for you. Using Nokia's HERE Mapping service, GeoPhoto not only enables you to check out where photos were shot, but also provides means to add and edit geotags later.

According to the developer on Reddit, this is the first app that can do that on the Windows Phone Store and it may be a great solution for those of you who leave auto-GPS info off by default.

Sprint ATIV S Neo gets spec’d out on Samsung’s site; confirms 16GB storage

50

Yesterday we brought you the news of a new Body Glove case for the upcoming Sprint ATIV S Neo from Samsung that was appearing in Sprint stores. While in and of itself that news is not exciting, it did hint that an official release of the phone was close.

Today, things are moving even more as Samsung has listed the phone on their official site with the full specifications. As far as we know (and we could be wrong), this device page is new and it does confirm a few lingering questions. For one, the ATIV S Neo does have 16GB of internal storage and not 8GB as reported earlier. Combined with the up-to 64GB of expandable storage, the Neo should satisfy most users.
