The Windows Phone, which was announced by Nokia at Mobile World Congress, will be heading to a number of markets, but has not been announced for the US. We've already witnessed some retailers revealing finalised pricing and availability, pinning the Lumia 720 to be available come April.

Disqus releases exclusive Windows Phone app, beats out iPhone or Android

115

Looks like Windows Phone today has scored one today as we’re the first to get a new, official app from Disqus (disqus.com).

For those of you who don’t know, Disqus powers the commenting system on many websites and blogs, offering users a single-way to sign in through social networks, etc. Users can maintain accounts so that their Disqus “history” goes with them, regardless of the site they are commenting on.

The official Windows Phone version is now live in the store and truth be told, it’s a solid little app. The goal of the app is to help facilitate conversation, so instead of going to sites and then engaging in some debate, you can just go to your Disqus app and continue the conversation there.

Nokia re-releases Instagram-like app SophieLens, makes it free for Lumia users

60

As if this Instagram-filled day needs to get even weirder, it looks like Nokia is re-releasing a Lens app for Windows Phone 8 under their name. In addition, they’ve knocked off the $1.29 price and made it for free.

The app is called SophieLens Pro and we looked at it previously at the beginning of February, noting that it was a solid Instagram clone with only a few minor criticisms.

The app features 5 lenses, including Cinematic, Flare, Mayfair, Roid and XPro. In addition, Lumia users can now download for free the Lomo pack, which includes another 9 filters to help get that right look for your photo. If however you want to get the Vintage and Life in Mono packs, you will have to “upgrade” to the PRO version of the app to unlock.

Nokia releases #2InstaWithLove social app to put some pressure on Instagram

172

Update: Download link is once again working

This morning we reported on the rumor that Instagram is coming to Windows Phone, but as a possible limited exclusive to Nokia Lumia devices. That information is now somewhat betrayed by the release of #2InstaWithLove app from none other than Nokia.

The app allows you to take photos using “the classic polaroid filter” and then automatically adds the hashtag #2InstaWithLove to the photo, for sharing on your favorite social network.

Manage business apps with the Windows Phone 8 Company Portal

The Windows Phone 8 Company Portal App does exactly what it says on the tin. The app enables Windows Phone 8 hardware that are managed by Microsoft System Center 2012 and Windows Intune to view, download and install business applications. Administrators are in control of the installation and signing of the app, which can then be made available to the management infrastructure to enable device enrolment.

Microsoft and Nokia are already beta testing GDR2 Windows Phone 8 OS update

99

It was only last week where we learned about so-called “GDR” or “General Distribution Releases”, which are to be minor OS updates for Windows Phone 8. The “Portico” update that started last December was reportedly GDR1 and according to ZDNet, there are at least two others coming this year as well: GDR2 and GDR3. After that is a “major” OS update with “Blue” coming in the holiday season.

We have now found the new firmware that is in testing on Nokia’s Navifirm servers and it is coincidentally labeled “GDR2 Beta 2”. Since we don’t believe that is by mistake it seems evident that this is actually not just a firmware update but also and OS-level update delivering new features, including the ability to clean temporary storage, improved camera performance and giving users control over their display color profile.

A forthcoming Nokia update will allow Lumia 920 users to change their display colors for the first time

115

Nokia is evidently adding some more customization options for Nokia Lumia 920 users (and possibly their other WP8 Lumias).  The evidence comes from the latest update of Nokia’s display + touch app, which allows users to control the SuperSensitive Touch and sunlight readability options.

Now there is a third option called “Lumia color profile”, which will allow you to make your Lumia 920 “Vivid” or “Natural” by using a slider. Likewise you can change the color temperature from “Cool” to “Warm” on a second slider.

This will be the first time on Windows Phone that users were given access to changing more than just brightness on their display and it shows how Nokia is continually offering improved experiences.

New Nokia 920 firmware points to camera changes, possible Storage issue fix

74

Yesterday on Nokia’s Navifirm servers evidently a new firmware update for the Lumia 920 briefly appeared. The current version for most users is the 1249 branch but this new version is of 1308 variety (1232.5957.1308.0004).

Unfortunately, the firmware is now off of the server meaning we personally cannot analyze it for changes. The good news is that some in our forums already did do some digging and there do appear to be changes to the camera for the better. In addition, new Storage options may give users a means to clear their Temporary cache on their Lumia.

Rumor: Instagram coming to some Windows Phone after all

231

A couple of days ago the Instagram icon was spotted on a Nokia Lumia 620 promotion banner, stirring up expectations near and far. By itself, the banner probably means nothing. Could be nothing but a careless photoshopping error from the designer, right? But now interesting rumor is coming out of China, the wonderland of leaks, again pointing to Instagram availability on Windows Phone.

ConsoTracker, a flexible tracking app for Windows Phone 8

0

Last month during Fitness Month we highlighted several apps that would help you track water consumption, calories and other aspects of your fitness efforts. ConsoTracker came to our attention that offers a lot of flexibility in tracking items from your Windows Phone 8 device.

ConsoTracker will let you track your weight, water consumption, gas usage, or anything that can be measured. ConsoTracker has plenty of features but setting thing up can be a little overwhelming. Still, it's a nice option for those looking to keep track of things from their Windows Phone.

BBC announces Windows Phone iPlayer app in the works

This is not a drill. I repeat, this is not a drill. The BBC has announced, in a recent blog post about mobile and the iPlayer service, that a Windows Phone app is well on the way. Consumers who reside within the UK will soon be able to enjoy content on the catch-up service. This will prove to be a huge boost for Windows Phone as a top media provider looks to support the platform. So when can we expect to see the app arrive?
