Get ready for what may be the best photos and videos you’ve taken with a smartphone. The Nokia Lumia 920 brings Optical Image Stabilization, 8 MP PureView technology, and incredible photo and video software—all to Windows Phone 8.
Tumblr for Windows Phone was released. You can post on your Tumblr, check your dashboard, and explore different topics. It’s fast and it looks really good.
When you open the app, you see your dashboard. These are posts from people you follow. With one swipe, you can explore different topics from people you don’t follow. This app makes it very easy to post, like, and reblog so Tumblr users on Windows Phone will be happy.
Another cool feature is support for animated images. You see the animations only after you scroll a page. For example, if I click on this topic here, a page will show up. The images won’t animate until you actually start scrolling down.
There are a couple of things to complain about. Right now, you can’t swipe through photo galleries. You actually have to press the left and right buttons. Swiping would definitely feel better. I hope it gets added in an update. Another complaint I have is that I can only post one photo per post. In the next version, I would like the option to upload multiple photos.
Even with these complaints, I still think this app is really good. It’s fast and it looks beautiful. It’s available at the Windows Phone Store right now for free. You can scan the QR code I’ve included in this video so you can download it directly.
