This week for fans of Windows Phone (and the Windows ecosystem as a whole) was amazing and full of discoveries. For example, we learned about many unpleasant moments in desktop Windows 10, and also yesterday it became possible to install Android applications on Windows 10 Mobile . Despite these events, today's release has turned out, as always, interesting, so enjoy.
Lumia smartphones in front of other smartphones on Windows Phone stand out by the presence of exclusive applications, of which there are a very decent amount. Unfortunately or fortunately, almost all exclusive applications relate to the camera of smartphones, i.e. With these applications you can take pictures or work with ready-made photos, but there are few video editing applications.
Microsoft Hyperlapse is one of those few Windows Phone video editing apps from developers called Microsoft Mobile. The main function and feature of the application is the “alignment" of the video, i.e. if you shot an action video and the video turned out to be jerky, or you mixed up the water with some other drink and your hands started to shake, this application will “smooth out” the video and it won’t “jump”. It is also possible to speed up and slow down the video. Recently, this application has been updated and has become available for all WindowsPhone devices, including devices with 512 MB of RAM.
Life Tracker Pro +
I hope that most Treshbox readers have an active lifestyle. And although he is not a supporter of such an activity as running, many people around the world regularly run, or go through the set number of steps they need. And it is for such people that there are various trackers or step counters. One of the best free representatives of trackers for steps on Windows Phone is Life Tracker Pro +, and let the “Pro” and “plus” consoles not scare you, the application is completely free.
It has rich functionality and excellent design. Of course, you can see the distance traveled in meters or steps for a certain time (day, week, month or year), but you will also be available weather information at that time; hourly activity traffic and calories burned. In addition, the application has a system of “rewards” that will be assigned to you when performing certain tasks (for example, walk 5 km or take 3,000 steps).
As many Windows Phone users and simply people who are interested in Microsoft’s mobile OS are aware, until recently, many developers either did not pay attention to mobile Windows at all, or released “bird apps” without updating it for years. The developers of the official Twitter client belong to the second category, although they apparently started to be fixed, because the Windows 10 Store already has an updated client for computers, and it may be universal.
Be that as it may, the Windows Phone Store has a good alternative Twitter client called Fenice. In addition to the fact that you will find much more functions in it than in the official client, Fenice has a beautiful design that attracts both avid Twitter users and people who are just entering this social network. The only minus of the application is that it does not support the Russian language.
Lumia Photo Studio
In the description of the first application in today's collection, I wrote that for Lumia owners there are quite a few exclusive applications for working with photos, and Lumia Photo Studio is one of the best examples of this.
This application, as you might have guessed, is a photo editor. In addition to the main functions in the form of image cropping, rotation and filtering, it also contains such unique functions as a “color mask” (you can take a photo in black and white with the exception of one or more details in the photo, as shown in the first screenshot), blur selected area, manual adjustment of contrast, brightness, sharpness, "temperature" and the like.
As one of the most famous monopolistic corporations in the world, Google continues to ignore the Windows Phone platform in every way, and the most prominent case is the lack of all the services and applications from these developers in the Windows Phone Store. But, as it always happens, there is an alternative, and the best analogue of Google Keep from third-party developers on Windows Phone is an application called Flat Notes.
It is designed to create quick notes in which you can insert various files, including photos and hyperlinks. The application is made very beautifully, in the style of Windows 10, the color scheme of which is customizable by the user to your taste, which is undoubtedly good.
