The Unification service by Liquid Daffodil is picking up steam with more consumers and developers getting involved. To help make the experience as feature rich as possible, the team has enabled inline image support, meaning developers can now send images in notifications, as well as the standard text. This is especially useful for social apps that could render photos shared by others, for example.
Both the Windows Phone and Windows 8 apps have recently been updated to implement and support the new functionality.
So what do consumers need to do? Nothing at all really, except continue pressing on developers who haven't yet got on the Unification train. Should you be a developer, we strongly urge you to get in touch with the Liquid Daffodil team to get your apps ready for Unification. It will help you interact with your user base even when the app isn't running - who doesn't want notifications?
We've previously gone into some detail as to why developers should look at this avenue seriously, so we'll not dive into this once more, but without repeating ourselves, be sure to fire an email to Liquid Daffodil for more information: email@example.com.
To wrap up this news on a high note, the team has also placed the web-based version of unification into beta, which will eventually enable consumers to keep track of and manage notifications through a web browser - perfect for those who find themselves on a public machine or using an operating system that's not supported.
If you'd like to be included in the beta program and see what all the fuss is about with the web version of Unification, be sure to contact the team via any Liquid Daffodil app and they'll look to throw you on. You can download Unification for Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 for free. Side note: our own app is being updated to take advantage of this change.

Review: HP's Spectre x360 15 is gorgeous, but battery life disappoints
The HP Spectre x360 15 is a unique laptop, not only in its design, but because it's the only recent convertible available in this size. The 2020 model sweetens the deal even more with a vibrant, nearly borderless display and snappy performance. Is it worth the high price, though? Let's take a look.
