HTC One M9 camera now supports RAW format

HTC One M9 camera now supports RAW format

Love it or hate it, HTC changed their camera hardware for the One M9. In getting away from their Ultrapixel shooter they touted so much with the One M8, HTC also had to change up the camera software — then fix it. Now, we’re getting a new feature for the One M9 camera; the ability to save and send pictures in RAW format. The update doesn’t need a firmware fix, either. Like many OEMs, HTC unbundled core apps, so all you have to do is update the camera app via Google Play.

Amazon Instant Video update adds cellular streaming for iOS

Amazon Instant Video update adds cellular streaming for iOS

If you use your Amazon Prime membership for more than just fast, free delivery, chances are you stream TV shows and movies via Amazon Instant Video. If you’re doing so via the iOS app, we’re willing to bet you’ve noticed shortcomings. Streaming was only available over WiFi (which defeats the purpose quite a bit), and you couldn’t cast your content to Apple TV. With an update to their Instant Video app, Amazon is fixing both of those issues, so you can watch over a cellular connection (even in HD) and redirect to Apple TV.

Windows 10 phones will (sort of) run Android & iOS apps

Windows 10 phones will (sort of) run Android & iOS apps

Remember the Nokia X? It was one of the last Nokia handsets, but its platform was a subversive attempt by Microsoft to get Android apps onto their platform. Without much work, Android Developers could make their apps available on the Microsoft store for the Nokia X, which was meant to bridge a gap between platforms. that concept died, but Microsoft didn’t give up on making it easier for Developers to ‘write once, deploy everywhere’. Now, code written for Android and iOS apps can be compiled in Visual Studio.

Fotograf review; an easy, powerful iOS photo editor

Fotograf review; an easy, powerful iOS photo editor

I gushed about CameraBag 2 for OS X, and for good reason. It’s powerful, easy to use, and one of the best desktop photo editors around. The same team responsible for that desktop app also have a mobile photo editing app in Fotograf. Silly name, but Fotograf wants to be taken seriously in a competitive, crowded space. With apps like VSCO Cam, Snapseed, and Enlight looming large, Fotograf wants to be your mobile photo editing app of choice. Can the Nevercenter team replicate their solid desktop efforts via mobile?

Apple now rejects Apple Watch apps that ‘just’ tell time

Apple now rejects Apple Watch apps that ‘just’ tell time

The App Store is ripe with apps that support the Apple Watch. Plenty more exist in the backlog, as many Developers note it’s taking longer than usual to see their apps feed through the bottleneck of Apple’s app review process. Today, Apple’s app review guidelines have changed, and the most notable difference affects Apple Watch apps. In the ‘User Interface’ section, Apple now says any Watch app that aims to do little more than tell time will be rejected outright.

Livescribe+ ‘Preview Edition’ now available for Android

At CES this year, Livescribe was ready for us with their Livescribe 3.

Starting today, anyone can check that app out for themselves, as Livescribe is making their Livescribe+ app available via Google Play. Available for download, Livescribe is saddling the app with a ‘Preview Edition’ name, meaning it’s still technically in beta form.

WhatsApp voice calling comes to iOS (sort of)

WhatsApp voice calling comes to iOS (sort of)

WhatsApp has turned on voice calling for iOS, a feature many iPhone users have waited patiently for since Android got the feature last month. Calling is free to use, even if your contacts are in different parts of the world. It’s also a clever way to sidestep your included voice minutes, if you’re not on an unlimited voice calling plan. The iOS update also brings in share extensions, a camera button for chats, and the ability to edit contacts within WhatsApp.

Quip adds Chat Rooms to take on Slack

Quip adds Chat Rooms to take on Slack

Mobile-first productivity app Quip is entering the chat age. While you could always carry a discussion within the confines of a document, Quip has updated their service to roll in Chat Rooms, which takes the conversation outside of your documents or folders. It’s an interesting move for Quip, which likely sees a bit of an opportunity as other services like Slack snipe users with their enterprise-first approach to chat. The update is rolling out soon to Quip’s Android and iOS apps.
