Sneak (s)Peak with Indigo, the new digital personal assistant

32

We reported yesterday on Indigo, the new voice controlled personal assistant from Artificial Solutions and promised that we’d try and spend some time with the app here at MWC. Happily we have done just that and stopped by the Artificial Solutions booth a few hours ago to talk about their new service.

Indigo is just part of a larger system which Artificial Solutions are building, based around their own natural language engine and what they refer to as the ‘brain’, the Teneo Interaction Engine. It’s a smart looking service which we’re excited to see coming to Windows Phone, read on for more details on Teneo and a video hands on.

In our final MWC podcast, we discuss TouchWiz on a TV, the difference between a Fonepad and a Padfone, and whether a Photosphere is really a Photosphere if no-one's around to see it fall.

Go forth and tag as Nokia releases NFC Writer app for Lumia users

88

We’re still trying to get to bed here in Barcelona, but that hasn’t stopped Nokia from releasing new apps to their Collection.

Twitter and WhatsApp are just the start as new Windows Phone 8 apps loom

326

Windows Phone 8 users should rejoice as evidently the newly updated WhatsApp and Twitter apps are just the beginning. Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore took to Twitter to react to the mostly positive news by teasing  he has a “few more apps on my #WP8 phone that aren’t in the Store”.

Microsoft in the past has had headline grabbing “app pushes” where a near steady cadre of awaited apps were launched on Windows Phone. The last time this happened was soon after Windows Phone 7.5 was launched with nearly 50 high profile apps being released over a span of weeks.

While we’re certainly not anticipating that many apps this time (Microsoft did just hit 130K apps) there are a few big titles that we’re still missing...

Gallery: HTC's booth at Mobile World Congress 2013

60

Here at Windows Phone Central we often get accused of focusing on one manufacturer in the Windows Phone world, and not giving the others equal time. The truth of the matter is that we go where the news is, and this week especially has been a week all about Nokia and their heavy presence at MWC.

Still, we want to bring as much of the MWC experience to you as we can so when we find something relevant you'll know about it. Whilst we wish there was a story to be told in this post, the truth is that HTC displayed their Windows Phone 8 offerings by way of exactly 4 devices (among easily 40 seperate HTC One devices).
