Fhotolens is a Windows Phone 8 photography app that applies a fish-eyed lens effect to your camera.  Fhotolens also has an HDR mode to give your ultra-wide shots a High Dynamic Range.  The app has been updated a few times over the past few weeks, building upon a rather appealing Windows Phone camera app.

The most recent update was pushed out today and takes Fhotolens to version 1.2.0.  The update adds a few performance tweaks, bug fixes, and a new image viewer.  The performance tweaks increases the image capturing speed two fold.  HDR capture still takes a bit of time (keep in mind you're capturing three images) but standard shots are noticeably faster to capture and process.

It’s not uncommon for Windows Phone 8 games to require 1 GB of RAM at launch, only to later be updated to run on devices with 512 MB of RAM. This happens because optimizing a game to work with less RAM takes extra time. Games don’t have the phone’s full bank of RAM to work with. On a 512 MB device, they can only access 150 MB. Sometimes a game can be crammed into that space, sometimes not.

Gameloft’s Dungeon Hunter 4 launched without 512 MB RAM support back in December. Yesterday’s update added that support, allowing the game to run on low-memory phones like the Nokia Lumia 520. The update also brought another benefit we didn’t expect: MOGA controller support! It even turns out that the most recent Asphalt 7 (a game that already worked with 512 MB phones) update added MOGA support as well. Exclusive screenshots, hands-on video, and impressions after the break.

1Shot is a Windows Phone 8 photography app designed to let you capture images at the highest resolution possible and saves them as a single viewable file in your camera roll.

1Shot was updated a few days ago to address a few performance issues but it prompted us to take notice of additional features that had arrived through previous updates.  From user interface re-designs to adding a few new settings, 1Shot has progressed rather nicely.

On New Year’s Day, we wrote about a recent App Campus game released for Windows Phone 8: Mossad, from Israel-based indie developer GreenShpits. Mossad marries location-based gaming with searching for virtual items in the real world via augmented reality, something you don’t see all that much on Windows Phone.

While Mossad’s unique gameplay made the game noteworthy, a few major bugs tempered my enthusiasm for it. The developer took notice of our report, and quickly released a patch that addresses most of my concerns. Head past the break for post-update hands-on video and impressions!

4Blend HDR is the latest HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography app for Windows Phone 8.  The app takes three photos of your subject at varying exposure settings and blends them together into one image.  The result should give the photo more dynamic colors/range.  4Blend HDR has a simple layout, a healthy selection of effects filters and a voice-triggered shutter.

We found the app to have potential but was held back, in part, by stability issues.  As expected, an update was released today taking 4Blend HDR to version 1.0.1 to address the stability issues.  The update also adds a flash setting to the control panel to allow you to turn off your Windows Phone camera flash.
