With a webcam attached to your computer you have many options available to you. You can conduct video chats, set up a simple security system and much more. With Flutter installed, there is something completely different you can do.
When you’re watching a movie, or listening to music on your computer, you may need to quickly pause playback which results in a mad scramble to find your mouse or keyboard and then finding the right control in the media player you’re using. Flutter enables you to use your web cam for simple playback control.
One integral part of any phone is ability to take pictures. And if you’re anything like me, you’ll try to get pictures of everything and everyone in the entire world. That’s why we download photography apps, making the experience even better by adding additional features over the stock camera app.
Last month at Windows.Appstorm I wrote an article entitled “Windows Phone Elite: Photography Apps!” This was a roundup of my favourite Windows Phone photography apps in the marketplace. Each of these apps was brilliant in its own right, but there was one that clearly stuck out. Photosynth. The only app in the world which allows you to take full 360 degree pictures.

Last year when Apple released their iPhone 4s one of the major new releases was Siri. A voice control system which allowed you to manage your phone in a more interesting way. Now that Siri has been around a year, other companies to follow suit, trying to replicate this exciting new implementation of voice recognition.
One of the best Siri clones has been Ask Ziggy, an app which follows the same concept, but on the Windows Phone. Since buying my phone Ziggy has been a firm favourite of mine. Using it in everyday situations to settle debates and set reminders.

Boredom induced random browsing of the internet has often led me to find interesting applications, along with a lot of other murky stuff. Some of these apps have been incredibly useful, some not so much.
Here are two applications from Glorylogic, that, I believe, might be of great use to you.
Optimizing and tuning up the performance of a desktop is serious business. It probably could be the second most stuff people care about than keeping their PC’s free from viruses and malware. Windows has gotten a lot better than it was and Windows 7 probably is the best operating system in the market.
But, the more things change, more they remain the same. Let’s admit it, all the enhancements over the past decades have not changed the core of the operating system that generates clutter real fast and slows down performance over time. Being the most used operating system in the World, you don’t have the luxury of writing it from scratch and breaking down backward compatibility.
To give them the credit they deserve, third party companies have done a lot of heavy lifting to make the Windows experience a whole lot better. TuneUp Utilities is a notable one of the lot and after a the jump, let’s take their new release for a test drive.

More often than not, trying to pick a movie to see takes more time than watching the darn movie in the first place! This is where a aggregator of some sort helps as they give you a quick idea of what the movie is about and how the critics and fans feel about the movie. IMDB is one of the forerunners of this category and today we’re going to take a look at IMDB’s Windows phone version.

Everybody enjoys listening to music. However, what really determines your listening experience is how you decide to listen to your music. Many music lovers are moving their music to the cloud. While this is far more convenient compared to the traditional method of having a locally stored library, the quality of music is not always preserved.
Audiophiles such as myself typically use desktop players. Many desktop music players such as iTunes don’t always perform very well and don’t look too great either. If you happen to be on the lookout for a responsive, aesthetically pleasing, and free music player, Foobar2000 may be what you are looking for.

The very fact that you are reading these words means that you make use of the internet. You probably use it for all sorts of things from downloading software and checking the news to keeping in touch with friends and using social networks.
You’re undoubtedly aware that using the internet can mean compromising your privacy, and this is particularly true if you are a social networker. Privacyfix is an interesting add-on for Chrome and Firefox that enables you to check your privacy settings on Facebook, Google and other sites and change those that might reveal too much information about you.
