A great app for Nokia Lumia devices was just updated. Cinemagraph 3.05 is now available at the Windows Phone store. I think it’s exclusive to Nokia Lumia devices. This update gives you even more control with options to edit the length, loop type, and speed. There are also filter effects you can add.
easyHeartRate is a cool Windows Phone app I’ve been showing off to friends. It measures your heart rate using your phone’s camera. How is that even possible? You just need to press a button and cover the camera lens with your fingertip. Watch my demo with the Nokia Lumia 800 to see how it works.
The Xbox Companion app for Windows Phone is now ready for download. The Xbox Companion app connects your Windows Phone and Xbox LIVE experiences. Search for your favorite movies, TV shows, music, and games, and play them on your Xbox from your phone. I made a video to show you how it works on the Nokia Lumia 800.
SurfCube is a web browser for Windows Phone available at the Marketplace. You can choose to use it on the Nokia Lumia 800 instead of Internet Explorer. It has an interesting 3D interface. Swipe from edges to open tabs, settings, or the address bar. If you don’t like the swipe gestures, you can enable the bottom menu to navigate through the app.
Metrotube is now live on the Windows Phone Marketplace. It’s an awesome Youtube app that we recently previewed. The price is 99 cents, but for a limited time, the trial version is unrestricted, unlimited, and ad-free. This means you only pay if you love the app and think the devs deserve it.
Here’s a demo of Metrotube on the Nokia Lumia 800. The official YouTube app for Windows Phone is ridiculous. As far as I can tell, it just opens the mobile Youtube website. Keep your eyes open for Metrotube, an alternative that shows how the official Youtube app should be. It’s currently in beta, but will be available in the marketplace soon.
I keep finding new things to love about Windows Phone on the Nokia Lumia 800. I really like the deep integration third-party apps can have with the core Windows Phone experience. For example, let’s take a look at the app called Thumba Photo Editor. After taking a photo with the camera, you can head to options then tap apps. This will send the photo directly to the app for some photo editing. For the end-user, this makes the third party app feel like a built-in feature.
