Jawbone is teasing support for Windows Phone that may come as soon as this week. Additionally, Jawbone is preparing to open its UP software to third parties, specifically, to other hardware manufacturers. This means that Jawbone would be able to collect data into its app from rivals like FitBit, as well as smartwatches running Android Wear, and Apple's long-rumored iWatch, according to Re/code.

Released over a year ago on Android and iOS, the game 'Daddy Was A Thief' is now available for Windows Phone too. Since it is a universal app, you can also play it on your Windows tablet or PC. This is not another endless runner game. It's actually an endless faller. The goal is to keep smashing through floors to escape after a bank robbery. It's a great little time-waster. Watch our gameplay video.

There's a new location game called Pinpoint on Windows Phone from the team behind Foundbite. As you know, or at least should know, Foundbite is an exclusive Windows Phone app that allows you to capture the atmosphere of a place, event or experience. It does this by combining images with audio to create some cool clips called Foundbites. This new game uses those Foundbites and their location data to make you guess their whereabouts.

Adobe's video apps will soon support HiDPI displays

Adobe's Creative Cloud video apps will soon offer proper support for the high resolution HiDPI displays available on modern Windows laptops like the Dell XPS 15. The apps have been stuck in low-res mode for what seems like an eternity (even if the Retina laptops are really just a few years old at this point), and so soon users of Adobe Premiere Pro CC, After Effects CC, Prelude CC, and the rest of the Adobe video suite will soon be enjoying true Retina quality to their work.

This morning, Microsoft detailed plans to push their Bing apps, like Weather, Finance, Food, News, to the MSN branding. Microsoft started this process some time ago when they first ditched 'Bing' in the name of those apps, and instead kept them with just their category-generic names.

During the Microsoft #moreLumia event last week, I showed you folks how the Microsoft Weather app and Lumia Denim play nicer together. Specifically, Glance gets what look to be third-party app support, letting other Lock screen apps appear on the Glance screen (see it above on a Lumia 830).

I also dug deeper into the Weather app as it is called 'Weather beta' in the app listing. This section is where I first noticed the 'MSN Weather' name pop up as seen in the About section of the app.

We showed you what's new with Lumia Camera and a closer look at its awesome Rich Capture feature, but there's another feature worth getting excited about. Microsoft is calling it Moment Capture. Basically, a long press of the camera button starts 4K-quality video recording at 24 frames per second. Each frame is equivalent to an 8.3 megapixel image that can be saved. Want to see it in action? Watch our hands-on video!

Mobile operators in the UK have rejected government proposals on setting up national roaming, according to the Financial Times. Earlier this year, operators were urged by officials to look into the possibility of sharing infrastructure in rural parts of the country, as well as locations where consumers seemingly loose signal coverage. While this would help prevent customers experiencing drop outs in connectivity, mobile operators didn't believe the plans to be viable.

Microsoft is planning to revamp its MSN portal. The web service has been available for consumers to use for more than a decade, providing insights into the latest headlines, favorite sports, searching through highlighted content on the web and checking emails. The company has published a preview website, showing off what's to come. Microsoft will also be bringing across its Bing apps – which are currently available on Windows and Windows Phone – to Android and iOS, rebranding them all under the MSN umbrella.

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.
