156

When AT&T announced the 16 GB version of the Nokia Lumia 1520 many balked at the Windows Phone citing the lack of memory (among other things).  Even with micro-SD expansion, many thought 16 GB of storage was just too limited.

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.

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.
