“We have more than 300,000 Windows Phone apps today and the Windows Phone Store continues to grow,” a Microsoft spokesperson told TNW. “In the past year alone the Windows and Windows Phone app catalog has grown 94 percent, while the number of active developers has grown by 50 percent.”

Android Wear offers some usefulness right out of the box, once the wearer connects it to their Android phone. However, apps extend that usefulness and really make the platform shine. These apps let the user carry out things on their watch and help the users interact with their phone.

The faces installed on the Android Wear watches look nice enough, but the others available in the store often look better or offer functions not included in the pre-installed faces. Choosing a watch face is a matter of taste primarily, but also function.

Android phones usually don’t come with the free Google Keep app preinstalled, but users should get Keep because it’s so simple and useful. Even though I’m an Evernote  user (which also works with Android Wear), Google Keep holds my To Do list. On the watch users can see their notes, shopping lists, To Do lists and anything else their Keep app will hold.

Lyft lets people call for a ride from their Android phone, and now the watch. It’s like a crowd sourced taxi service. Many of us can’t use Lyft since the service isn’t available in our town, but residents in 67 cities in the US can now call for a ride from Lyft drivers right from their wrist. It’s not just in the biggest cities like New York, LA or San Francisco. For example, Charlotte, NC, just down the road from me, has Lyft drivers. The service contacts them and the user pays by credit card through Lyft so no money changes hands.

Once the users installs these faces, she can change the watch face by pressing and holding a finger on the screen. The watch face will shrink and the user can then swipe left or right to change the face. Once the user finds the face they want to use, they tap on the screen and the face fills the screen again. The video below shows how to do this at the 3:45 spot.

Microsoft has another reason to celebrate as the number of apps available for download from the Windows Phone Store has reached a new milestone. More than 300,000 apps have already been developed and approved for the Windows Phone platform that can run on smartphones and tablets as of June 2014.

I am very excited about this new feature on the App Store, it really opens a wide array of AAA titles that can finally be added to the site. Developers can benefit by being able to tap into the largest Canadian App store. But really, when it comes down right to it, It’s the users that really benefit the most! A whole new world of content is available to them that used to be exclusively available only on Google Play.

And for game makers, knowing that a certain number of players had already committed to a certain length of gameplay might make planning the resources for future game updates a more exact science. At a zero price point, acquiring users is easier but keeping them — especially in a casual game — is tough.

Utterly shameful. Real people, many of them children, are dying in Gaza. Many of those who haven’t been killed face life with debilitating injuries, bereavement and without homes. Their suffering is as real as yours or mine, and to make light of it like this speaks of your essential failure as a human. Shame on the creators of this game, and those who ‘play’ it.

The Windows Phone Store is growing at a fast rate but it’s interesting to see how it will reach the million-apps mark like the iOS store and the Play Store. It seems Microsoft’s call for developers and give them cash rewards have succeeded. Aside from the rewards, Microsoft also launched an incentive program for Unity developers to bring games to the Windows Phone mobile OS.

Many of the top Android app stores such as 1Mobile and Getjar do not allow developers to upload data files. Amazon does allow people to upload OBB files but makes them self-host them, which can amount to hefty data costs. This puts us in a very unique position among all of the other Android App Stores out there.

Windows 8.1 Update 2 should be code complete any time now and will be locked down about two weeks before August Patch Tuesday, my sources say. (August Patch Tuesday is on August 12.) Microsoft may opt to not make a big deal out of Update 2 and just push it out quietly as part of the set of August patches, I hear.

Crear video con aplicaciones móviles es una tendencia popular, pero no siempre es fácil usar software en una pantalla diminuta para crear algo “demasiado complejo”, por eso, Fly es una app que podría cambiar la tendencia, pues su interfaz es suficientemente simple.

Para conocer las rutas más cómodas, los mejores bares o restaurantes, los monumentos que ver o las actividades que se puedan hacer en el destino elegido. Tu Smartphone puede convertirse en tu mejor aliado gracias a una serie de apps que te harán más fáciles tus vacaciones, vayas a donde vayas

Por otro lado no debemos olvidar que la aparición de las aplicaciones en nuestras vidas también ha dado lugar a una nueva especie de “artesanos”, que no es otra cosa que la comunidad de desarrolladores encargados de dar vida a las apps.

Fly tiene un modo de edición que emplea recuadros de video para compararlos y combinarlos. Por ejemplo, es posible tomar varios clips, cortarlos y unirlos, además de agregar transiciones de disolvencia; si bien esto es algo ya “conocido” en diferentes apps, lo interesante es la forma como se usa.

The Microsoft OS team is hoping to get as many Windows 7 users moved to Windows 7 Service Pack 1 and Windows 8 users to Windows 8.1 Update in preparation for (hopefully) getting them to move to Threshold once it is out. It’s still early in the Windows development cycle for Microsoft to have decided on packaging, pricing and distribution, but my sources say, at this point, that Windows Threshold is looking like it could be free to all Windows 8.1 Update, and maybe even Windows 7 Service Pack 1, users.

Microsoft’s new iPad apps are of the so-called “freemium” variety, meaning they require in-app purchases to unlock certain features. In the case of Office for iPad, free features include document viewing, but users need to have an Office 365 subscription to make edits. Existing subscription holders can sign in immediately, though Microsoft also built in a subscription purchasing mechanism in each Office app.

Microsoft also announced some new tools designed to help developers create and deploy touch-centric business apps running on Windows 8.1 Update, which the company began rolling out to Windows 8.1 users last week. Among those tools:

One of the biggest bits of news is that Microsoft is encouraging developers to use whatever tools they want. Whether a developer chooses to use C# or Visual Basic (VB)—or C/C++—to write native apps, it’s all good. Microsoft is also actively encouraging developers to build cross platform apps with JavaScript and HTML5/CSS and has promised an update to Internet Explorer 11 with hardware accelerated graphics support that takes advantage of a device’s GPUs while leaving the CPU untouched. 

As noted by MacRumors, Microsoft first suggested it was interested in bringing its Office suite of software to Apple’s iPad in early 2010. Some industry watchers have suggested that Apple’s policy of taking a 30 percent cut of all in-app sales may have delayed the release of Office for iPad. Microsoft may have also been hoping that the unavailability of its Office software on Apple’s iPad would help draw more users to its own beleaguered Surface line of tablets.

“I think Microsoft has taken a substantial step in the right direction with the changes to the cost and availability of side loading keys. Couple this with the increasing maturity of projects like (Magenic’s open-source) OrgPortal and CompanyStore and I think we’re getting to the point where WinRT (the Windows 8 runtime programming interface) is something to consider for business app development,” Lhotka said.

All three flavors of Windows now run on a common software core, or “kernel,” with a common runtime (i.e., the set of tools necessary to run programs). The major remaining differences between them have mostly to do with how they handle user-interface issues across a variety of devices, input methods (think touchscreens vs. mouse and keyboard), hardware (not just CPU and memory, but graphics processors, accelerometers and other sensors) and screen sizes.

2. Windows for Internet of Things, para desenvolvedoresNa sua conferência
para programadores (a Build), na semana passada, a Microsoft lançou uma
nova versão do Windows chamado – vejam só – Windows for Internet of Things.

El problema es que llegó muy tarde y esto hace que sea muy complicado atraer desarrolladores. No faltan apenas aplicaciones de grandes compañías, pero los juegos y el resto de programas tardan en aterrizar en su tienda, si es que llegan. Microsoft está tirando de cartera para solucionarlo, pero no es fácil. Si finalmente Windows 8 se hace un hueco, será un as en la manga, ya que es muy fácil convertir aplicaciones para que sean compatibles con sus dos plataformas.

El último en llegar no lo tuvo fácil, pero en los últimos meses se ha impuesto a iOS en algunos mercados (únicamente en ventas trimestrales, ya que Apple tiene una base de usuarios muy superior). Según Kantar, en el último trimestre de 2013 consiguió una cuota del 5,6%, frente al 1,2% del mismo período del año anterior y el 6,7 de iOS.

You may also need a means of editing photos and other graphics files in standard formats such as Jpeg or Png. Here, we’re not concerned with compatibility with particular Windows software, but with the ability to import and export in the necessary formats and the provision of adequate functionality. As with Windows, a wide range of Android apps is available for photo editing.

First up is the BlueStacks App Player which it’s free from As the name suggests, this package allows you to run Android apps on your Windows machine but it’s not a full Android emulator so you won’t get the full Android experience.

However, unlike some similar packages, BlueStacks includes Google Play so you can search for and install apps in just the same way as with a true Android phone or tablet. As a beta release, it’s probably not reasonable to expect it to be perfect and we did, indeed, experience a few teething problems.

Yahoo News Digest: Designed to make your news-reading experience easy and painless. Yahoo News Digest finds the best and most important news and creates news digests, delivering them to you twice a day. Perfect for you to stay up-to-date with what’s important if you’re short on time. [Free]

Type Machine: Have you ever been in the middle of typing something in your phone, only for it to cock up and force you to start over? I know I have. Type Machine will make a backup of everything you type, so that if you do lose it, there’s a backup for you to go back to. It’s customisable, so you can tell it to not record for specific apps, and it all runs in the background so you won’t even know it’s doing its magic. [£1.24]

Not only that, but the screen section can then be used as a tablet by someone else, at the same time. Needless to say, buying two computers in one doesn’t come cheap and, even then, without some of the solutions we’ve seen elsewhere in this article, it doesn’t allow you to run Android apps under Windows and Windows software under Android. With a street price of £899, you’d probably be better off buying a separate Android device and a laptop at the moment. However, if this type of computer really takes off, expect prices to tumble. What’s more, if it also provides a means of the Android and Windows elements interacting with each other, with the ability to share software between the two platforms, we think manufacturers will be onto a winner.
