Nokia and its love for Music

8 Apr , 2014  

Nokia and its love for Music

No this is not about Nokia’s Mix Radio service, although it is somewhat connected to that. Remember this video from the Nokia Lumia 1520

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4_HSkGembQ

Its a live performance by Niila recorded with a bunch of Nokia Lumia 1520’s. I went in search of the original work of the same and found these

Niila just has 5 videos till date and less than 300 subscribers in his YouTube. Just think of the Nokia’s advertisements and device promo videos for a moment, all of them has great music! Like all of them! I am amazed how Nokia takes the time and effort to do this, to find great music even from less famous artists. I never knew him before the 1520 video. And also the Balance by Future Islands, is also another example of, Nokia and its love for Music.


This one above is just a child humming, yet it has a soul. Its brilliant.

This one is just a clicking sound or something, yet it has something in it. We at NokiaTips love the love Nokia has for Music <3, and the Dolby Mobile support, and the new worlds first Dolby 5.1 in the Nokia Lumia 930, and soon in the Nokia Lumia 1520, are emphasizing the same.

Instatic – A full blown Instagram Statistic viewer for Windows Phone

19 Mar , 2014  

Remember the time we talked about UnfollowSpy back a little while? Now there is something better than that (it depends upon what you want out of them, more about it on a bit), called Instatic.

Let me get one thing straight, UnfollowSpy is for you if you wish to get insights in a lite and easy way and also wish to have Twitter and Facebook statistics . Yeah i know that there is no Facebook support now, but its coming, its planned. Just use that and exit this post now. But if you wish to have both the apps running for the other services UnfollowSpy has to offer, and also wish to have even more detailed insight on your Instagram account than what Unfollowspy has to offer, read on. And by no means i favour one over the other, both are awesome! it just comes to what you’re looking for.

First thins first, you have to login with an Instagram account, its simple. And then comes the sad part, first time load. Wait quite a long while for the app to get the stats from Instagram and to analyse and to work on it and present it to you. Depending on the followers, following and post and likes the wait time will vary. Thankfully you can tell it not to update on startup and can reduce various stuffs under the settings to load it faster, given that you’re okay with stats not so deep. If you see the settings page yourself, you’ll get what i am saying. Everything is simple and easy.

You first see the dashboard, from where you can move around

Instatic Dashboard

 

The app gives a very detailed analysis without annoying you like some other apps, you do get one notification that suggests to follow the app’s Instagram account, which you can opt to neglect. The app is fully functional, has a great UI and UX, it just works as you expect. Does what it says in a sweet manner, if you are a heavy Instagram user and care for stats, go for it. There are several packages which you can unlock the features of the app, and you can also get the total pack which includes all the feature and also gets rid of the advts. Its a very little price to pay for an app this good, its also a good way to support the dev.

Goal of the game is to take duck to the end of the level without touch any obstacle. It is very simple yet tough game.

When asked whether it will support 512MB RAM, he said, he isn’t sure but he will manage to do that.

It is nice to see that popular games and app have started to appear on Windows Phone quite early than it used to take.

So are you excited to play the game and get addicted? 😀
