The calm before the storm. That’s the best way to describe this past week in terms of apps and news for Windows Phone. We had a few big ones come, like Vine, but overall it was a pretty normal week for new apps coming, apps getting updated, and betas. Nonetheless, let’s look back at the highlights from this past week.
We first caught wind of Nokia Refocus during Nokia World 2013. It is a creative photography app allows you to take a picture and then manipulate the focus point of the photograph. Nokia Refocus has just gone live in the Windows Phone Store and is available exclusively for Nokia Lumia Windows Phone sporting a PureView Camera and the Amber update.
Nokia not only announced new products and accessories at Nokia World 2013, the company also unveiled some new software features - one being Nokia Refocus. The app enables you to capture an image, much like you would with the Nokia Camera app, with the ability to alter which elements of the photo are in focus afterwards.
It's a really cool idea that Nokia is now discussing on their Conversations blog.

Today at Nokia World 2013, we’ve just learned of how Nokia continues to plans on pushing the envelope with mobile photography. RAW support anyone?
