8-Rotate, a Windows Phone 8 app to help get the tilt out of your photos

15

8-Rotate is a handy Windows Phone 8 app that will help straighten out slanted photos.  We all take crooked photos from time to time and 8-Rotate will not only help you straighten things out but also will let you crop the corrected images.

There isn’t much to 8 Rotate and while the app can come in handy to adjust those tilted photos, the photography app could use a little fine-tuning.

Some consumers adapted to the new Modern user interface, while others struggled to move on from the Start menu, not effectively utilising the Start screen with Live Tiles and other functionality.

Nokia prepping Lumia Black software update, asking users for help in testing

206

Nokia’s Lumia Black firmware, which will come along with Microsoft’s Update 3 OS bump, is due in "early 2014". It seems however that the Finnish company wants to make sure all is right with the firmware as they are offering customers early access to work out any bugs.

The proposal seems to be tied to using the ‘Feedback to Nokia’ app found under Settings. Users who have evidently competed the mini-survey are being contacted via email with the offer to test Lumia Black before anyone else gets it. The early-access beta program appears to be linked to Lumia 520 and Lumia 521 devices, although it’s not clear if other Lumias will have the same testing program.

USAA banking app returns with Windows Phone 8 support in latest update

50

After disappearing from the Windows Phone Store nearly 11 months ago, the United Services Automobile Association (USAA) banking app has finally returned with some new features and Windows Phone 8 support.

The app was pulled in early 2013 and USAA later went on record stating there was simply not enough market share for Windows Phone 8 to justify their continued support of the app. Since then, people who had the app previously installed could not even use it as it stopped working.

SophieLens HD gets access to the Camera Roll, lets you finally edit older photos

15

We’re big fans of SophieLens HD, especially since its major overhaul back in Abu Dhabi. The Windows Phone Lens app applies some really slick filters to your images and also adds nice overlays, like Wikipedia or location info. In that sense, this is way more than just another filter app for Windows Phone.

The last update a few weeks ago included the addition of two new filter packs, some bug fixes and UI adjustments. This week, the app has received another update, and it’s quite significant.
