LockAgenda, giving your Windows Phone lockscreen calendar a boost

35

The Windows Phone Store is has plenty lockscreen apps that allows you to add a certain level of customization to your Windows Phone lockscreen. LockAgenda hopes to attract your attention by displaying more of your daily schedule of appointments on your lockscreen.

The app has several display options for your appointments and a decent selection of lockscreen wallpaper images to choose from as well. You can even use your own image as your lockscreen wallpaper. I can see some appeal with LockAgenda and if you need to see more of your calendar from your lockscreen it may be an option worth trying.

Microsoft has announced some new features for Windows App Studio Beta. You'll remember that Microsoft released Windows Phone App Studio Beta over a year ago as a way to attract developers to Windows Phone. It consolidated that effort this past April with Windows App Studio Beta, a new tool to allow users to quickly and easily make apps for Windows Phone and Windows. Today we're getting new features like sideloading support on Windows Phone and new languages.

Is the Windows 10 Home folder bad for privacy? Here's how to get rid of it.

136

As people continue to use the Windows 10 Technical Preview, they are identifying subtle differences between it and its predecessor. One such feature that seems to be a double-edged sword is the Home folder in the File Explorer. When clicked, the Home folder displays a list of your File Explorer Favorites, folders that you frequent, and your recently-accessed files. It is the last two that have people questioning whether the Home folder is a good or bad idea.

Review: Microsoft Screen Sharing for Lumia Phones HD-10

191

Back in September, Microsoft not only announced a couple new phones, but some new stylish accessories. One of those was the awkwardly named Microsoft Screen Sharing for Lumia Phones HD-10, which is a fancy title for a Miracast device. The timing of the announcement was also a little bit strange as Microsoft also has their dongle now called the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter.

Apparently, the two products overlap, and it is safe to surmise that the HD-10 was made by Nokia and the dongle by Microsoft prior to the acquisition.

Today, I am taking a look at the HD-10 and showing you how it brings something new to the table, including a video demonstration using the Lumia 830.

Sabrent USB 3.0 Hub review – Plug more devices into your Xbox console, tablet, or computer for cheap

26

Now that several wired controllers are available for Xbox One (Power A's Mini Series controller and Spectra controllers, plus some on the way from PDP), a gamer could easily run short of USB ports on his or her shiny new console. Plug a hard drive and keyboard into your rear ports and you're left with only one to spare. You can hardly plug in multiple wired controllers or flash drives with media files under those situations.

Thus a USB 3.0 hub is in order. Of course there are no Xbox One-specific USB hubs, but pretty much any USB 3.0 hub will do the trick. With that in mind, I grabbed the Sabrent 4-port USB 3.0 Hub for a mere ten bucks on Amazon. This little hub is perfect for Xbox One and 360 use (it supports USB 2.0 as well), and also goes great with Windows 8 and RT devices like the Surface.

Review: Incipio Feather ultra-light case for Lumia 930 and Icon

31

Even though Verizon put the Lumia Icon out to pasture less than a year after the launch, it doesn't stop current owners of the under-rated phone from needing a good case for it. Neither does it change the fact that the phone is alive and well in other markets around the world under the pseudonym Lumia 930. And for that reason, we give you the Incipio Feather ultra-light case for both.
