EyeEm: the best Instagram alternative you’ve never heard of

EyeEm: the best Instagram alternative you’ve never heard of

In the shockwave that is the Facebook-added Terms of Use for Instagram here as 2012 ends and 2013 begins comes the resurgence of the app called EyeEm - a photo snapping, filtering, and sharing app that you've likely never heard of before today. Though EyeEm has been around for many moons now - over a year on some platforms - it's just this month seeing one whole heck of a lot of renewed interest as a massive exodus from Instagram occurs: and as EyeEm is already established not only on the web, iPhone, and Android, but on Windows Phone 8 as well, it's high time this ecosystem got some traffic.

Microsoft temporarily stops publishing new Windows Phone apps

It appears that Microsoft is having some issues with a few new Windows Phone 7.5 apps, and as a result has decided to stop publishing new ones as it works on delivering a fix. According to a recent post on the Microsoft blog, there's a glitch with the digital certificates used to sign apps, meaning that some apps which were published in the last few days aren't installing properly. Microsoft also says that the problem has nothing to do with your phone, so at least you don't have to worry about that.

HTC Titan II Hands-on

HTC Titan II Hands-on

We're getting our first final-product hands-on experience with the HTC Titan II here at the end of the week, and with its seemingly large 16 megapixel camera, Windows 7.5 Mango, and 4.7-inch display, it appears we've got a beast in our fingers. To be sure, we've also got the iPhone 4S and the HTC One S here to compare to in brief - for their cameras, mostly. What you'll find here in this first hands-on post is that this device is more than up to the task of being a fabulous Windows Phone - but is the smartphone you're looking for?

AT&T confirms Windows Phone Tango update soon

AT&T confirms Windows Phone Tango update soon

Windows Phone users working with AT&T-connected devices for the past few weeks and months have been in a bit of a pickle as the carrier has not sent out a Microsoft-made software update made available this January. This update fixed several bugs in Windows Phone 7.5 Mango including a "disappearing keyboard" issue - all of this will now instead be fixed by a slightly more grand update instead. AT&T representative Anne Marshall spoke up this week about how AT&T has decided to skip smaller, incremental updates to Windows Phone in the short run and stick with larger updates like Windows Phone Tango, which is up for release next.

Windows Phone Tango leaks: ported to HTC HD2

Windows Phone Tango leaks: ported to HTC HD2

The next version of Windows Phone, Tango (or should that be Refresh?), is aimed at devices with lower specifications, like the Nokia Lumia 610. There are some limitations on what can run in the background when it comes to multitasking, and the update supports devices running only 256MB of RAM. So far the release of Tango has been pegged for a frustratingly vague “Q2” launch, but ROMs have already been leaked and ported to a number of devices.

Windows Phone 7.5 Refresh tipped to Tango

Windows Phone 7.5 Refresh tipped to Tango

The next version of Microsoft's mobile operating system has this week been tipped as Windows Phone 7.5 Refresh. This is in contrast to what we've heard in the past with rumors floating through cyberspace of the code-name being Windows Phone Tango, but does not knock down the idea that Windows Phone Apollo (the update after this) will be Windows Phone version 8.0. This new naming scheme comes from Windows Phone Italy who had the chance to sit down and have a chat with Microsoft's Stefania Duico, who coined the name.

Nokia Lumia 900 for AT&T delayed until April 22

Nokia's Lumia 900 Windows Phone was originally rumored to hit AT&T in mid-March, but now the launch of the handset has reportedly been pushed back to April 22.
