  • Blog Post: Nokia Transitions

  • Blog Post: Nokia LiveSight: A New Definition to World Atlas

    It seems that Nokia is on a tear across the digital mapping industry.

  • Blog Post: Create time-lapse videos on Windows Phone

    I’ve been thinking of building myself a time-lapse camera using .NET Gadgeteer of late – I’ve always like that style of photography but never had the patience for it. That was until I came across Timelapse Pro for Windows Phone of course. This simple yet powerful little application...
