152

Microsoft’s quarterly reported ending in December 31 has been released today with the company reporting $24.52 billion in revenue. That’s up from last year’s record-breaking $21.5 billion, meaning Microsoft continues to deliver the goods to investors.

The devil’s in the details though, and Microsoft sheds a little light on where their money is coming in and where it’s declining.

Report: Nokia Lumia 720 to receive double-tap to wake with ‘Black update too

77

Two days ago, we reported on the Lumia 625 grabbing the double-tap to wake feature with its Lumia Black update. The new option allows people to literally double-tap the display, when off, to wake up the phone making one-handed usage easier.

Another phone that is lacking that feature is one of our favorites: the Lumia 720. Now, a Vietnamese user has received the Lumia Black update on their Lumia 720, claiming that the update has brought double-tap to wake, in addition to all of the other features. A video was also posted giving a ‘review’ of the revamped 720.

Subway Surfers for Windows Phone gets latest Miami update same day as the iPhone, Android

79

We have some great news for you Subway Surfers fans out there, as version 1.18.1 is now live in the Store. The update brings the brand new World Tour: Miami theme.

Windows Phone users had to skip World Tour: Mumbai due to the extended Christmas theme and challenges. Those ended yesterday. What’s more, Windows Phone is getting the update the very same day as iOS and Android, making it one of the first times all three platforms land at once.

Now for the bad news: this update does not bring 512 MB support. Users will still need 1 GB of more RAM in order to get in on the latest Miami action, so users of the Lumia 520, 620, 625 and 720 will have to sit this one out.

Nokia pushes out Cinemagraph 4.0, now with vaunted GIF export feature

90

Cinemagraph is one of many innovative and unique apps that Nokia has brought to their Lumia line of Windows Phones. The app captures a rapid series of photos and then strings them together in a loop, for a photo with a live, movement feature. Users then can upload their creations to Nokia’s servers, which generates a URL link for sharing with friends and family.

Version 4.0 has now gone live in the Store, and we’re talking more than just bug fixes and optimizations (the last update was in October). Nokia has brought probably one of the top requested features for what is essentially a GIF generating app: GIF export.

Nokia posts somewhat disappointing Q4 2013 results, avoids revealing Lumia sales

Nokia releases its financial report for Q4 2013, showing a decline in Lumia sales before passing the baton to Microsoft

While both the media and consumers wait patiently for Microsoft to inevitably absorb Nokia's devices and services division, the Finnish company today published its Q4 2013 financial report. This latest report paints a rather bleak image of its Lumia family of Windows Phones. Simply put, Nokia (and Microsoft as both the operating system developer and financial partner) had a bad period to close off 2013. That said, it's not all negative and the Nokia we should see after the Microsoft deal will be a profitable company.

Runtastic releases four new fitness apps for Windows Phone 8

63

There are a handful of excellent fitness apps in the Windows Phone Store. One of my personal favorites for tracking my workouts is Runtastic. They’re a small mobile fitness company that have seen tremendous growth over the past year. I like to think hiring a full-time dev for Windows Phone helped with some of that growth.

Anyways, over the past year they’ve had two apps in the Windows Phone Store: Runtastic and Runtastic Pro. Both excellent apps that more or less were similar in features. However, on iOS and Android they have a host of other fitness apps. Those apps are now available for Windows Phone. Let’s check out their apps that will help you keep track of your push-ups, sit-ups, pull-ups and squats.
