iOS10 on iPhone 6s review

Well first of all for a (first) beta I find this release really stable. Haven’t experienced any weird things going on yet. I’m running this beta on my iPhone 6S Plus, which is also my daily driver. I absolutely love the new raise to wake function. I can quickly look at my phone, screen turns on. Great! On the lockscreen it annoys me a bit that I have to press home to unlock. I didn’t have to slide to unlock in iOS9, why do I have to press it in iOS10 instead of just letting it scan my finger and go?

Developing UWP apps for Windows 10 Mobile is confusing

I’m in the middle of developing a client app for an open source project. It’s a UWP, available for desktop and mobile. I have no idea how to go about designing the UI for it. Everything I know from WP7/8 is gone. I can’t take cues from any native apps, because each one is different. It’s a disaster. So I have a pretty terrible UI.

Capcom adds story mode to Street Fighter V

It doesn’t change the fact that all this stuff should have been in the game to begin with. Instead they rushed out a beta for some stupid fighter game tournament that the vast majority don’t care about. The disc itself is absolutely worthless to a collector like myself. Years down the line when nothing is playable online and/or you lose all your update data, its going to be next to unplayable. Capcom should have offered refunds, and free games to all the people they scammed into buying this trash.

How to save windows mobile in 2016?

I think they’re already trying to do what I think is their best option. Focus on the best and broadest range of tools for developers to make apps for the platform, this is key to laying ground work to compete in a very steep market place. If they can please their developers, it will gradually have a knock on effect to pleasing their consumers.

Windows Phone Share Drop in April 2016

It looks to me like Microsoft have decided to make Win 10 as good as they can on all device sizes, get the ecosystem as good as they can through UWP apps and easy converters from other platforms (ie stuff which is largely just as relevant to the desktop as it is to mobile so they aren’t putting money only in to mobile) and then (and only then) try and incent OEM’s to build mobile devices for the OS. Part of the encouraging OEM’s will be to release a reference device or two, in the way they have with the Surface line, but why launch new phones before the OS is ready. If OEM’s and the market get behind it then, then fine. If not, then they won’t have wasted too much money as most of the spend would have been necessary anyway for desktop Win 10.

Windows 10 Mobile coverage at Build 2016

Since its Windows on every device type, although they haven’t mentioned anything in the build specific to mobile, it is and will help mobile a lot. This build is aimed at “needing windows to loving windows” for devs, designers. The more people use windows, the more userbase the devs can target and make apps for. They are trying to solve the chicken and egg problem now.

Here Maps for Windows Phone to be axed

So my theory about this decision is, that HERE was once build using many private APIs they could only use because Nokia had deep knowledge of WP8 as an OS and maybe was even capable of implementing some APIs on their own. Now that Microsoft took over that part of Nokia and HERE belongs to a different company, they have no more information on this kind of API.

Windows 10 Atom z2760 fiasco

So you cannot upgrade to Windows 10, so what. Windows 8.x has worked fine for you up till now will continue to work until the device dies. Everyone goes ballistic because they can’t upgrade. The Intel Atom Z2760 was a locked down platform from the beginning and when buying it you should have realized that. Very simple, don’t buy anything with an Atom CPU in it.
