If you ask me to name one thing that I liked the most from the recent Microsoft press conference, I'd say it's the new Lumia Camera. If you haven't heard, Nokia Camera will be updated to Lumia Camera as part of the Lumia Denim update. What I'm really excited about is the feature in Lumia Camera that Microsoft calls, Rich Capture. It's a new mode that can be quickly enabled with one tap. Watch the demo on video to see what it's all about.

Update In a response to our inquiry if Fhotoroom had indeed reached the 5 million download mark for Windows Phone, they got back to us on Twitter by saying, "Just about, mostly like end of this month ... at the time shared it was for both WP and Win. That number has grown a fair bit. Metric are always moving target." The message added that an upcoming Windows Pbone 8.1 update "coming very soon will help" it reach that milestone.

Original story: Fhotoroom, the popular Windows Phone photography app, has not only released a new update today, but the folks behind it posted word on its store download page that the app has now exceeded 5 million downloads. Fhotoroom broke the 4 million download mark in May.

SensorCore is software that adds functionality to your Lumia Windows Phone and can even turn the device into a pedometer, measuring just how much you're burning off on a daily basis through step counting. But this is where Run Rabbit Run differs from the usual wearables and fitness products available today.

The app gamifies exercise by encouraging users to really work hard and travel distances in return for carrots to spend on an adopted rabbit.

Paralaksa is a wonderful Windows Phone app that allows you to create lockscreen wallpapers that are based on themes. If you are sporting Windows Phone 8.1, there's no reason you can't use the wallpapers as Start Screen backgrounds as well.

We've tinkered with Paralaksa for the past day or so and while pronouncing the name has given me fits, the app itself comes across as a clean looking, creative way to compose some nifty Windows Phone wallpapers.

Did you hear the news? Microsoft bought the mobile division of Nokia. So, it should not be too shocking to see Microsoft Mobile slowly but surely replace 'Nokia' in the Store with the more accurate 'Lumia' tag for those specialized apps we have all come to love.

Today, Storyteller, Panorama, Cinemagraph, and Creative Studio have all gained 'Lumia' in their titles, replacing the outdated Nokia brand. This trend is not new either as over the last few months we have witnessed a few apps get the Lumia re-brand treatment.

Masks, a nifty Windows Phone image effects editor

Masks is a new photo editor for Windows Phone from the developers behind the popular Windows Phone photography app Fhotoroom. The app allows you to apply effects filters to specific areas of your photo by using preset masks.

The app includes 26 masks and 23 filters. You can pick up more masks through an in-app purchase.

Keep in mind that Masks is not a full featured photo editor but rather a specialty editor. It may not appeal to everyone but in using Masks over the past few days it comes across as a nice editing tool to have in your Windows Phone photography library.
