Microsoft is slowly & steadily improving the Windows Phone experience by way of quick OS updates enabling basic as well as some critical new features. This of-course applies to you if you have enrolled for the Windows Phone Developer Preview program.
The last Developer Preview Update version 8.10.14203.206 brought with itself some key enhancements with one amongst them being a critical internal change. Post updating to the latest version, your device will now automatically detect low-space during a Phone Update and make use of SD Card to complete it successfully. That’s a major major update for those holding a device with 8GB or lesser internal memory.
The Treasure Tag application from Microsoft adds one nifty feature in its latest update for Windows Phone. Apart from bug-fixes and improvements, the app now adds the ability to click pics remotely using the button on your Treasure Tag Accessory in conjunction with Lumia Selfie app.

Lumia 730 from Microsoft is a perfectly balanced device and one that’s selling like hot cakes in many countries. It’s also the first device from Microsoft to feature a 5MP Full HD camera module in front & owns the Selfie status.

Yes, we are back or shall I say ‘I’. Got entangled in some personal work and health was a bit plus and minus.
This was on my mind for quite some time and finally am able to share this beautiful Ad of Lumia 730 with you. I really like this advertisement of Lumia 730 and more than it I really love the device itself. Sadly enough I don’t own one.

The 3D Sound – it’s awesome by the way!

Skype team has updated its brand new Skype Qik app on Windows Phone with the much needed ‘Qik Fliks‘ feature. At launch Windows Phone was deprived of this feature and not taking much time, it has been released by the Skype team.
Qik Fliks – When you want to reply to a message but don’t have time to record a video of your own, you can use a Qik Flik. They’re like GIFs you record yourself – little 5 second videos you can send with just a tap. You can record and store your own Qik Fliks so you’re ready to respond to anything.
