Earlier today Windows "Blue" (build 9364) was leaked to the internet with screenshots, followed shortly by the 2.6GB 32-bit ISO image becoming available on file sharing sites. It now appears that the update includes updated productivity applications, including a new Calculator, Sound Recorder, Alarm and "Movie Moments" app (which is currently not functioning).
The Calculator app, which includes Simple, Scientific and Converter modes, is a largely straightforward application with all the functionality youd expect from a desktop calculator app.
Similarly, the new Sound Recorder app offers simple functionality and a design in-keeping with the Metro interface.
At present, the new "Movie Moments" application is not functioning, offering up just a file browser button and a Microsoft confidentiality statement.
Lastly the "Alarm" app is just as simple as the previous ones, allowing users to program repeatable and single-use alarms, as well as creating custom timers.
The new build is clearly designed to blur the ever-shrinking gap between the desktop and mobile Windows environment, allowing Metro apps to run over multiple monitors and up to 4 apps to be snapped in view at any one point.
Irrespective of the multitude of productivity applications currently available in the Windows 8 store, professional users and those who own a Surface Pro are likely to take advantage of the new apps available in Windows Blue.
