    I can't take a picture of my GroupMe group due to privacy but GroupMe updated on iOS and Windows phone (and probably Android as well) today to add poll support! You can create polls and participate in them too.

    Honestly I d know why its nessasary to even say this other than people with wives tales, hyperbole and nashing of teeth.
    The same reason we had to discuss Linux on servers in the early/mid 2000s. FUD was rampant.

    Hoping they soon have dark theme support for Windows as well. Didn't know about the poll support. Might have to put that to use.

    If you open the link, the very first line of the article... :P

    The official Instagram app has just updated on Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 10 devices and while this update didn’t introduce the newly launched video filters which can now be found on the iOS and Android apps, it did improve the app in some other areas.

    That's great news. This is truly a great youtube app. It would be nice if there was an option to automatically go to fullscreen when you turn the phone to landscape, but I did just discover on accident that you can double tap the video and it goes to fullscreen. I don't know if that is new or not, but I just discovered it.

    Just found whilst looking in the Windows Store - the Go series, used to be win32s on the PC platform. Then they went to the store via the centennial bridge (pc only), which is how they were the last time I looked. NOW, they are full UWP, and fully ported.

    IDK how new this is as far as news goes, But Lara Croft GO, Deus Ex Go and Hitman Go are all now available for windows 10 mobile.

    As you can see, they originally came to the Windows platform as win32's:

    Lara Croft GO on Steam

    Hitman was also originally a win32. They hit the windows store after they hit the platform as win32s.

    When I made a game guide for windows tablets, a few months ago, they were PC only in the store I am 99% sure (maybe I am wrong perhaps there, they did come to the platform as win32s before they hit the windows store).

    Deus Ex was also at that point on Android, and iOS but definitely not in the windows store yet. That's been ported relatively recently.

    It does seem like some developers have a "port everywhere" approach. Another example would be leo's fortune developer 1337 & Senri LLC - which also runs OSX, playstation 4, xbox 1, android, ios or for another example, the gameloft games.

    It kinda makes sense - if you make an xbox game, its apparently very easy to port it to win32. From there centennial bridge is an obvious move OR you could write the game in xamarin, and port from there to ios, android and UWP, or you could port from ios, all paths lead to rome.

    If you have a popular title, its easier to port it, than to start writing a new game entirely. Juice that puppy. If you writing for multiple stores and platforms xbox/windows 10/windows 10 mobile existing in a "cluster" makes it a lot easier, than say getting your code to playstation. Hence windows 10 mobile ends up with more games than it would otherwise.

    It would be cool to see some more of the xbox ports, eventually become full UWPs, as the halo series, fallout shelter and tiny soldiers did. Maybe oxenfree, even the turing test.

    I don't think phones will handle quantum break any time soon, but I think its pretty cool, that for a platform without banking apps yet (UWP), and only 1-2.5% users atm, the gaming situation is really pretty sweet due to all the porting suites, and having a relative over on the xbox.

    And its interesting to think about too, because all the doomsdayers will say that developers are leaving, and sure some are. But at the same time, a lot of developers are actually literally JUST coming in, whether its WhatsApp and iTunes, Spotify via the pc only centennial bridge, or Mega or big game titles being ported right across the platform.

    And you can see a progression in developers, like the Go series, or Kodi, from win32 to centennial bridge to 100% pure UWP. A flow, in the direction we all want that flow heading.

    It's kinda positive for mobile :) Maybe its not the flood of UWP everyone would like, but its a movement, a momentum to be built on.

    New features? That's all I needed to hear. Surely timeline and Cortana skills could be considered productivity features - hope we see those soon!

    That's pretty cool, so if you are in a cross platform family, you would only need one station.

    Okay, this was pretty cool (for me).

    Yesterday, while walking my dog in the morning, I was holding my Elite X3 in the same hand as the leash. Suddenly an evil rabbit appeared and my dog wanted to invite it for breakfast. She loves chasing the rabbits, and even the coyotes, but especially the squirrels - so she instinctively whipped around and tried to give chase.

    Unfortunately, my X3 flew out of my hand, hit the ground, and now has a nice crack on the screen despite the IP67 rating it has. The device is still very much usable but I was annoyed (at the rabbit).

    So, while reading a few threads about the 950xl, and wanting to try out the Wallet app, I fired up my 950xl. It was already updated to the latest insider build, as I use it on weekends to take pictures during my son's basketball games. Today I had a little fun. While the X3 sounds better, has a nice decent size screen, front facing speakers - this device fits in my pocket a little better and I was able to import my credit card. I used it at Subway today to get some lunch. Very cool!
