Those who grabbed Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8.1 Preview for Developers have been greeted with a collection of new features and updates to drool over, but one of our past beloved features has also seemed to disappear. After downloading the Developer Preview, you will notice that Bing search has been replaced by the very capable Cortana, but the ability to scan QR codes has seemed to disappear along with her arrival.

The well-loved Bing Vision featured has not been removed, but simply placed elsewhere. We are going to show you how to access Bing Vision on your device running Windows 8.1, along with three alternative third party apps that can get the job done!

Windows Phone Central's Roundup of Apps for the Ladies

While we have touched upon Windows Phone apps that are focused more towards our female audience from time to time, we thought a Roundup of app's for the ladies in the audience was in order.

Granted a lot of our Windows Phone apps appeal to both the men and women in the audience but there are a large selection of apps that cater primarily to the girls. From health apps focuses on women's needs to shopping apps we rustled up a small collection of apps that might appeal to the women Windows Phone users.

As with any roundup, we may have overlooked a particular title that you are rather fond of. This oversight shouldn't reflect poorly on that title, it's just a matter of time and limited space. If we've miss an app, feel free to share your recommendation in the comments.
