Just started messing with WP8.1 on my Lumia 625

 

Must get a phone with a higher res screen :cry:

 

Edit: changed start screen background to match the lock screen, looks much better.

 

Something needs to be done about those skype and onenote icons though :/

 

I use Hot Tiles! to make them transparent  ;) .

My ATIV S running WP8.1 GDR1, living in the UK and finally being able to use Cortana is awesome.

I went back to Windows Phone for a time. It's way better than when I last left it at Windows Phone 7.8.

 

I got the Lumia 1520 (Hulk Green) and I love it. A bit too big, but with my eyes starting to age, the bigger screen helps. One of the things that bothered me about this upgrade experience is that, like, I understand that a lot of people don't want a Windows Phone, so that's why the stores don't carry any, well the 1520 that I know of, in stock (even though it's featured on a large display near the front door). But if you do want a Windows Phone, they asked if you've even had one, and if you say no, they try to sell you on something else. If you go through with the deal, it's "Oh, we don't have it in stock. We'll mail it to you!"

 

But I want it nowwwww.

Design wise, I'm really not happy with Windows Phones new folders.

While they add much needed functionality, they make the start screen much more cluttered.

If we could designate one icon, or the live tile from one app, to be the main/only thing shown for each folder, it could be a lot cleaner, and less resource intensive.

I don't even want to post a screenshot, it's a ####### mess :/

Here are mine.  The Halloween one is my LG G2, the other is my 2013 N7.   I normally go with a dark background with not a lot of color, but thought I would switch it up a little.

      Nokia 8.3 5G is going for a $120 discount on Amazon
      by Jay Bonggolto

      Amazon is offering the Nokia 8.3 5G with a $120 discount right now. The phone is going for $579, down from its original retail price of $699.

      For that price, you'll get 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The device comes in Polar Night and it is unlocked for all carriers.

      Announced in March of last year alongside the Nokia 5.3 and Nokia 1.3, the Nokia 8.3 5G was the first device to use Qualcomm's 5G RF Front end module. It's powered by a Snapdragon 765 SoC and sports a 6.81-inch FullHD+ PureDisplay.

      On its back, it has a PureView quad-camera setup with a 64MP main sensor and ZEISS branding. The camera module is housed in a circular bump with Nokia's logo to its south. It's backed up by a 4,500mAh battery.

      The device was launched in the U.S. in the fall of 2020 a few months after its debut in Europe, where it is available with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage in addition to the higher memory configuration. If you want to snap up the phone today, the Nokia 8.3 5G is available to purchase for $579 via Amazon.

      Google Chrome adds experimental share button in Custom Tabs
      by Jay Bonggolto

      In 2015, Google introduced Custom Tabs to Chrome on Android to provide a smooth transition from app to web content without resorting to a WebView. Compared to WebViews, the feature loads faster and allows apps to customize their web experience.

      However, Custom Tabs do not have a default sharing experience on the app bar that users can tap to post content to their social media accounts, for example. This is compounded by the lack of a sharing option in most apps that use Custom Tabs.

      That said, users can still find a share option by tapping on the overflow menu in the browser. In that case, however, users may have to leave the app and open the link in the browser, which reduces engagement for the app.

      Google is trying to address this problem with a new experimental feature in Chrome 88. The browser is adding a default share action in certain conditions. It will show up in the top bar when an app has not set its own Action Button. In case an app already has an Action Button, a default share option will appear in the overflow menu.

      The default share experience will be added automatically as long as the app doesn't provide an Action Button. That means users don't have to do anything to enable the new share action button. It remains to be seen when and if other browsers will adopt a similar feature.

      Windows Terminal to gain Settings UI in the next version
      by Nero Cui

      Microsoft released Windows Terminal in 2019 replacing the default Windows Console that PowerShell and CMD use by default. The new terminal program contains many features that command-line users have been asking for years like tabs, profiles, and modern text rendering. Although the JSON based settings allow users to customize the app, many users have asked for a GUI page (Graphic User Interface) for the settings menu because editing JSON, while flexible, is very hard.

      Today, a program manager (Kayla Cinnamon) from Microsoft teased on Twitter that Settings GUI is coming in the next preview version of Windows Terminal. From the GIF, we can see that the Settings page opens in one of the tabs just like how a new terminal tab would. The design seems to be following the Windows 10 Settings app, featuring a sidebar on the left and a detailed page on the right.



      Users who wish to manually edit the Settings JSON file still have the option to do so according to the GIF, but GUI is a nice feature for most users who just want to quickly launch and change some settings. The sidebar suggests that users will be able to customize areas of the app and each of the profiles.

      This new feature will soon come to a Windows Terminal Preview release. More information is available through Windows Terminal's GitHub page.

      Google Duo might soon stop working on unsupported Android devices
      by Jay Bonggolto

      A recent update to Google Messages was found containing a string that indicated the app would stop working on uncertified Android devices starting March 31. This was spotted courtesy of XDA Developers' teardown of the app's version 7.2.203.

      The change could be due to the rollout of end-to-end encryption feature for Rich Communication Service (RCS) messages. Now, a new app teardown by the folks at 9to5Google suggests that Google Duo will also stop working on unsupported Android phones in the future.

      This was found on the latest version of Duo (version 123), which contains the following notice:

      The app’s code also indicates that this upcoming change is related to “GmsCompliance" or Google Mobile Services (GMS). It's basically a collection of Google applications and APIs that support functionality across devices. Currently, even phones that are not certified to run GMS like those from Huawei can still use Duo.

      When the upcoming change takes effect, Android phones that are not certified to use Play Services may soon be unable to run Duo. It remains unclear, though, when the app will stop working on unsupported devices.

      Microsoft doubles down on Win32
      by Nero Cui

      Microsoft has been trying to modernize Windows and its development platform for a decade now. With Windows 8's Metro UI, Windows RT, Windows 10's UWP, Project Reunion and Windows 10X, Microsoft are trying their best to convince users and developers to move to a modern platform, but it apparently doesn't mean the end of Win32 as the company had just released a major capability to make it easier to consume Win32 APIs in programming languages other than C or C++.



      According to the blog post, Win32 APIs used to be only available to C and C++ developers, and programs developed in other languages needed to go through an error-prone wrapping or binding process. This process used to be done by the developers and it would only benefit the single language that the developers target. Moreover, the huge number of Win32 APIs available also doesn't make this process easier.

      To make consuming Win32 APIs easier in languages other than C or C++, Microsoft released new tooling called win32metadata. As stated by Microsoft:

      According to Microsoft, developers can use win32metadata to generate wrappers to Win32 APIs making the process much easier and less error-prone than manually writing every single one of them. Following this effort, the C# wrapper library C#/Win32 by Andrew Arnott and Rust wrapper library windows-rs by Microsoft are utilizing win32metadata to make Win32 APIs available in these two languages.

      Microsoft is hoping, with this tool, more languages will be able to make use of Win32 APIs. More information can be found on the project's GitHub page.
