Chase has dropped support for their Windows Phone banking app

chase-bank-discontinueBack in January, the large US bank announced they are removing their app from the Windows Phone store, however, the company said the app’s current users would still be able to use the app “until further notice”.

Well, it appears that today is the day many thought wouldn’t really come. J.P. Morgan Chase has officially discontinued supporting their Windows Phone banking app.

Those who try to use the app will now be greeted with a message that as of today the Windows Phone app is no longer supported. The notice also encourages users to visit http://m.chase.com mobile web site in order to use Chase’s banking services on the go. Chase also notes that QuickDeposit option is not available through their mobile web site and that clients wishing to deposit their checks should do so at their local ATM or branch.

To add insult to injury, some Windows Phone users have reported there are “identification code” issues with the Chase mobile web site and they had to log in through the bank’s desktop web site. Bank of America, who also recently dropped support for Windows Phone, has been having similar mobile web site issues as Chase.

This is certainly not good news for Microsoft as having major US banks on board is crucial for the mobile platform’s growth. We hope with the release of Windows 10 this summer it will encourage Chase, BofA and other big banks to reconsider their stance on Windows Phone as developing and maintaining one Universal app for all Windows-based devices will make a lot more sense.

Lumia Denim update is rolling out to Lumia 830 owners in Canada

lumia 830The major firmware update to Lumia devices, called Lumia Denim, has been rolling out world-wide to many phones and carriers for a couple of months now. Although Microsoft has promised to deliver the update to eligible devices in all markets by the end of February, many North American Lumia owners are still patently waiting.

According to WindowsCentral, Lumia 830 owners in Canada are widely reporting that they are now able to download and install Lumia Denim on their devices. Reports indicate the update is available for the device on all major carriers including Rogers and Bell.

The update brings OS version number to 8.10.14234.375 and the firmware version number is 02040.00021.15063.02001.

Microsoft hasn’t announced they are pushing the update to Lumia 830 in Canada but we expect to get the official confirmation shortly. It is worth noting that Lumia 830 owners in the U.S. are still waiting for their Denim update, perhaps this is a precursor to the massive U.S. roll-out to the popular Windows Phone.

Lumia Denim brings some major improvements to the Windows Phone 8.1 OS including “Hey Cortana” feature as well as enhancements to the Lumia Camera app experience  HDR, Dynamic flash and much more.

Cortana may be heading to iOS & Android devices

cortanaMicrosoft’s personal assistant Cortana may no longer be exclusive to the Windows ecosystem. Cortana is currently only available on Windows Phone and the upcoming Windows 10 OS, but according to a Reuters report, Microsoft now plans to extend Cortana’s availability to iOS and Android devices.

The project to bring Cortana to other platforms is internally called “Einstein” and we’re hearing the popular assistant will come to iOS and Android as an advanced standalone app, available for phones as well as tablets.

“This kind of technology, which can read and understand email, will play a central role in the next roll out of Cortana, which we are working on now for the fall time frame,” said Eric Horvitz from Microsoft Research.

Over the last year, Microsoft has invested a lot into Cortana’s artificial intelligence capabilities and although many die-hard Microsoft fans will be disappointed that Cortana will no longer be exclusive to the Windows platform, having a wider audience for the assistant will greatly benefit Microsoft and the capabilities of Cortana.

Cortana is already deeply woven into Windows Phone, but this fall, Microsoft will be integrating Cortana deeply into Windows 10 and we expect that the personal assistant will also make its way to the Xbox One.  The power of multiple device types using the same personal assistant can create a very powerful experience as they communicate with one another.  If implemented correctly, the experience could offer something very unique and potentially game-changing.

This is yet another example of the CEO Satya Nadella’s push to sell Microsoft services on non-Windows platforms and devices as part of the mobile-first, cloud-first strategy.  A perfect example of what Nadella is striving to achieve is what Skype has become.   Skype is a truly universal tool that works across any device type and has practically become the industry standard in that particular market, and it’s expected to further solidify its position with the up and coming Skype Translator.

Microsoft’s aim is to create the same experience with Cortana, and have a truly cross-platform personal assistant that could work with any device in the hopes of becoming a universal standard as well.  With Windows 10 being a free upgrade to Windows 7 and 8.1 users, it’s expected to have a significant market penetration when it hits the market.

With Windows being regarded as a monopoly in the desktop computing market, it’s no question that hundreds of millions of people will have their first interaction with Cortana.  Those users however, are most likely using iOS and Android on their smartphones and tablets, and would surely benefit in having Cortana extend her assistance on these devices which could potentially sway users from the likes of Siri and Google Now.

OneDrive for Windows Phone updated with the ability to add PIN, new viewing interface and more

onedrive update feb 27 2015 onedrive update feb 27 20152 onedrive update feb 27 20153

Microsoft has pushed an update to OneDrive in the Windows Phone store, and it’s set to offer some pretty neat features. As of now, Windows Phone users will be able to sign into OneDrive with more than one account and have the ability to set up a PIN code to access the account.

There will be a new viewing interface called Albums, which has been added to the web and the iOS versions of the app.

Albums aren’t like traditional folders. You can create an album using pictures and videos from anywhere in your OneDrive. And, when you or people who share them with view them, it’s a much better experience: your photos stand front and center, thumbnails are larger, photos are edge-to-edge, and everything is arranged together into a beautiful collage.

Additionally, Microsoft will be including its Bing search technology within the app and provide new ways to find both photos and documents.

“You can now search for Office documents and PDFs by text inside of them and photos based on time, location, or text that is extracted from images themselves. You can also search for photos based on tags – both ones you manually created and ones that we’ve automatically identified.”

[UPDATE – FEB 25] Lumia Denim rolls out world-wide, here's the most up-to-date list of countries & devices to get it

Microsoft_more_lumia_Denim_600[Update – February 25, 2015] We have just updated the list to bring the Lumia Denim availability up to date, world-wide. The list below is pretty big now that we’re nearing the end of February as Microsoft has promised they will push the firmware update to all eligible devices in all markets by end of the month. We’re still awaiting the big push in North America and some more devices in Asia and Europe. Stay tuned as we keep the tally going!

Original article (December 29, 2014) – It’s only been three months since Lumia Cyan rolled out world-wide and Microsoft has been hard at work since then developing and testing a new wave of Lumia firmware updates known as Lumia Denim.

In an official blog post today, Microsoft confirms the Lumia Denim update push is currently under way “rolling out to a limited number of devices in selected markets, and will continue arriving in waves by device.” Speculations are circling that most of Europe and North America will get the large OS update in early 2015 while Microsoft carefully executes the update push in smaller markets.

According to Microsoft, aside from Cortana, live folders, SMS merging and many other improvements and fixes, there are some very important imaging enhancements coming with Lumia Denim. Here is the list of key camera updates you can look forward to:

A faster and more intuitive Lumia Camera app. The app will deliver images of the highest quality at the fastest speed, allowing you to capture multiple photos with just milliseconds between shots.

Moment Capture. This feature provides the quickest and easiest way to capture memories in high definition. A long press of the camera button automatically starts 4K-quality video recording at 24 frames per second. With each frame at 8.3 megapixels, you can save individual frames as high-quality still images. Due to hardware differences, Lumia 830 shoots Moment Capture in Full HD, not 4K, and with reduced 2-megapixel per frame quality.

Rich Capture. This simplifies picture taking with auto HDR, Dynamic Flash and Dynamic Exposure. Avoid the hassle of adjusting camera settings and focus on capturing the moment: Shoot first, edit and select the perfect shot later.

Latest imaging algorithms. Capture even crisper photos in daylight or low light, with our latest generation of imaging processing algorithms.

So far Lumia Denim has been released for many devices in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, Middle East and North America. Here is the latest list of devices by country which have the Lumia Denim update available for installation.

Verizon pushes Lumia Denim/Windows Phone 8.1.1 OTA update to Lumia Icon, brings "Hey, Cortana" 4K Video, HDR

Earlier today Verizon has pushed the much-anticipated Lumia Denim & Windows Phone 8.1.1 update Over-The-Air to all Lumia Icons on their network.

To manually check for the big update, simply go to Settings -> Phone update -> Check for updates.

The update is also available to everyone in the Preview for Developers program but Verizon is asking these users to leave their preview enrollment enabled, as disabling it will block you from receiving Lumia Denim. If you disable PfD and attempt to install the update, you will get a notification that your phone is up to date.

This update brings many system improvements and bug fixes. Most notable is the major improvements to Lumia Camera (v5.0) that includes Rich Capture 4K video recording, HDR and Moment Capture. Lumia Camera’s performance also gets improved.

Another great new feature with Lumia Denim is “Hey, Cortana” which allows users to wake up their Windows Phone and personal assistant Cortana, all hands-free. Enabling this feature will require some initial setup that you will be guided through.

Microsoft and Samsung settle licensing dispute; door opens for flagship Samsung Windows Phone

MicrosoftVsSamsungMicrosoft and Samsung have jointly released a very short, but important statement in regards to the pending legal dispute the two tech giants have been involved in.

Last August, Microsoft filed a law suit against Samsung for failing to pay for Android patent licensing worth billions of dollars. As a matter of fact, Samsung stopped paying those royalties in 2013 and interest on amount they owe has since piled up.

The two have reached a settlement deal and both parties seem to be excited to get past this legal hurdle. According to Samsung’s Jaewan Chi, Legal Affairs Executive VP and Microsoft’s David Howard, Corporate NP & Deputy General Counsel:

“Samsung and Microsoft are pleased to announce that they have ended their contract dispute in U.S. court as well as the ICC arbitration. Terms of the agreement are confidential.”

To add some context, for years Microsoft has been collecting royalties from all Android device-makers as the software giant owns many patents Android is in violation of. Instead of asking to stop Android sales, Microsoft has opted to license these patents to OEMs such as Samsung, HTC and Sony and cash in on Android’s popularity.

Once Microsoft announced they’re intent to acquire Nokia, the Korean company chose to stop paying these royalties as the acquisition in their opinion voided the cross-licensing agreement. This action prompted years of court battles.

Because of this, Samsung has been reluctant to build more Windows Phones. Now that the dispute is finally over, we may see a fresh start in this relationship and perhaps Samsung will consider shipping a Galaxy S or Note flagship device running Windows 10.

Check out these leaked screenshots of Windows 10 Technical Preview for Phones

windows-10-for-phones-leaked-screenshotsMany Windows Phone users are anxiously awaiting the preview release of Windows 10 for phones which Microsoft promised will come this month to Windows Insider program participants. Earlier, we have reported that up to one thousand Microsoft employees were being asked last week to do one final round of internal beta testing before the build is pushed outside of the company’s walls. Indeed, it looks like Microsoft is on track to release mobile OS in preview mode very soon.

So far we have seen one demo of the new mobile platform at the company’s Windows 10 press event last month in Redmond and we’re impressed with what we saw.

Today, however, we have been delighted to a small treat before the real thing becomes available – leaked screenshots of the OS (build 8.15.12493.42) have now surfaced and they appear to be the real deal. Perhaps one of Microsoft’s employees involved in internal testing decided to tease us with the early view of what we can expect later this month.

The screenshots, as you can see above, show some of the key improvements to the Settings and Action Center on the Windows Phone. Settings seem to be better organized as related options are grouped together and the Action center will allow users to add more than one row of custom buttons. The last screenshot shows the update and build info along with Seattle Seahawks Russel Wilson’s quote “Every setback has a major comeback.”
