Why Dropping Windows Phone 8.1 users from Skype is a good thing

Posted on 23 July 2016

Starting October 2016, Windows Phone 8.1 users will no longer be able to use Skype. From Skype’s perspective, this has nothing to do with Windows Phone, per se. Skype is cutting all of their older, marginally used apps across various outdated platforms. Skype is building its UWP app for the future. It’s not really Skype’s problem that the Windows team could not upgrade all Windows 8 phones to Windows 10.

Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14390 Changelog

Posted on 19 July 2016

Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14390 is a bug fix build so the only thing mentioned by Microsoft about this build is that they fixed tons of bugs. That said, WiFi issues still persist. I was not having the bug a few builds ago on my 950xl and I got the new firmware (double tap etc) and the bug is still around. Unless there is another firmware update since the last one the firmware does not fix the issue. Swipe keyboard still broken as well.

Spotify for Windows Phone gets new color scheme and pivot navigation

Posted on 26 June 2016

Spotify is a Windows Phone 8.1 app and is compatible with Windows 10 Mobile as well and this new update is for both. This is a nice news as Spotify have a large user base on 8.1 – I’m certain that once their userbase migrates to W10M, so will their app. I would be happy if I still was an 8.1 user and got the update, but there’s better W10M options out there today if you’re a single paying costumer.
