Yesterday came the first day of the last month of spring, which satisfied many: both the believers who celebrated Easter and the workers who celebrated the Spring and Labor Day. As a rule, after such significant events, people outline plans for themselves that they are going to fulfill in the near future, or make a wish that everything will be fine in everything. At least in the field of programs for Windows 10 Mobile, their desire began to come true, as you can see from the example of the following five programs.
A long time ago, when the Internet became actively used by many people, the first social networks appeared, including in the CIS, most of which are now continuing to exist, but only a few have gained great popularity: VKontakte, Odnoklassniki and Facebook. Honestly, using only one of them, it is difficult for me to objectively judge the other two, so I have always believed that mostly Odnoklassniki are used by people over 45 years old.
But the latest information makes us think about this: in the last update of OK for Windows Phone, the application has an improved section of videos, among other minor innovations, but it deserves attention, because the developers of this social network have actively begun to develop the direction of video service. Now users will be able to watch live broadcasts directly from the application of various celebrities, popular television channels in Russia, and will also be able to upload their videos.
Perhaps, among the popular mobile operating systems, Windows Phone is the most controversial, but not due to controversial features or capabilities, but due to the notoriety and not quite understandable work of developers. For example, where it is seen that the standard application worked disgustingly, especially if it is an audio player that is used by many users constantly, unlike some kind of timer.
If you have been using third-party applications for listening to music for a long time, the best of which we wrote in a special article
, and Groove Music simply hung in the list of installed applications due to its poor performance, then now you should think about it, because the standard audio player presented it was Groove Music that got rid of most of the bugs, increased functionality and appearance, and now it can adequately compete with third-party options.
If you start to analyze the benefits of household devices, portable computers, followed by smartphones, tablets and other smart devices, occupy approximately the same place on a par with a TV or washing machine. Around the time of the existence of mobile devices, technologies began to develop actively, it is worth looking only at data transfer technologies, just remember: infrared, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi Direct - the latter is now the most popular.
At a time when people used such inconvenient ways to transfer data, modern people can exchange files much more conveniently thanks to Wi-Fi Direct and, perhaps, the best application that uses data transfer according to this standard is SHARe.it, available on all popular operating systems. You just have to be in the same Wi-Fi network with your opponents, and then the process is practically no different from the same transmission via Bluetooth.
When Microsoft announced Windows 10 Mobile, most gullible users, including myself, firmly believed that with the arrival of the update all the troubles of Windows Phone would disappear, that is, the capabilities of the system would become wider for all smartphones, and in the application store there would be no more shortages of popular applications. Until recently, all predictions have not come true, and if the first is not destined to come true, the second begins to turn from a dream into reality.
To the delight of millions of users of Instagram, last month introduced the Beta version of its client for Windows 10 Mobile, and recently this beta version has turned into a full release, which includes all the latest innovations in the service. Apparently, the developers ported the application from the iOS version, because most of the design elements are very similar, but this also has its advantages: users of Windows 10 Mobile can use a gesture in the style of 3DTouch.
Apparently, not only Facebook, but also domestic companies took up the new mobile operating system from Microsoft. Yandex has always been very good with Windows Phone, but recently, almost all services from this company receive updates in the Windows Store, which is good news, especially the latest large-scale update of the “main” application - Yandex.
The program of the same name is preinstalled by default in all Russian Windows-smartphones, which can be called up by pressing the “Search” system button. In the latest update, the application began to look according to all the canons of Windows 10, it updated the appearance of the start page, which includes news, weather forecasts, a poster, a television program and more; returned scanning of QR codes and much more.
