  • WP8.1.1 update problem...

    , elmer wrote

    Off topic, I know, but does anyone else have a 920 where the Forward-Facing Camera has become next to useless because of dust inside the lens area ? Seems to be a flaw in the design.

    It does collect a lot of dust, it's worse than a belly button! They had to release a firmware update for the proximity sensor to lower the threshold, since dust made the screen go black permanently during calls :D

    You can let it be repaired but expect some fee as it's likely out of warranty, for what it's worth they improved it on the Lumia 930, can't see a speck of dust yet and I'm using it under the same conditions in my pocket, and no it doesn't bend ;)

  • IPhone6 Wave

    Joan Rivers?

  • new info around Midori team

    Nice scoop :)

  • "Ignore No More" app... locks phones until they call you back

    @John: afraid your mother(-in-law) would install it? ;)

  • Just bought Surface Pro 3 need help with Win8!

    Bring the device back if you don't allow your wife to have a Windows Live account.. I bet an Android device will be a safer option right? :-/

  • IP Tool

    I would recommend you to listen to a system event instead of polling, and use any authorization API's of OneDrive for an app token so you don't have to store password credentials locally.

    Good luck with your project! :)

  • Odd WP8.1 GDR1 scrolling lag on some web pages.

    IE is now also mimicking several browsers at once in the agent string. It only takes a script which does an if.. If...if... instead of an if...else if...else if... for browser targeting to create an avalanche of CPU intensive instructions.

    I can imagine IE could detect and optimize those kinds of client side scripts but that theoretically leaves out cases when code is server side injected.

    Still, purely speculative since I'm not on the IE or Gamespot dev team ;)

  • Odd WP8.1 GDR1 scrolling lag on some web pages.

    Strange, my issues just went away with the "tile folder" update. Sorry about the confusion, we're using the same build now that I figured GDR1 is update 1 (thanks Microsoft for not increasing build numbers anymore ;))
    Try out User Agent Switcher: http://www.windowsphone.com/s?appid=65783cf3-4a4f-4a89-a315-7998fe1ced6e
    They might be serving an overcomplicated version of their site to the new Internet Explorer so you might be able to report this to the site admin.
    I'm not experiencing any lagging with my new Lumia 930 but that might not be a fair comparison. I will try it out on a 920 later. Which device do you use?
    Edit: I see some embedded Youtube videos inside threads, Google rubbing some salt in IE's eyes? They have done it before haven't they? ;) Can you also post an exact URL where you experience it the most?

  • Odd WP8.1 GDR1 scrolling lag on some web pages.

    For what it's worth, that has been fixed in the WP8.1 Update 1 developer build that was released this week. You might want to consider and developer-unlock your phone, it was pretty irritating in the older WP8.1 developer builds and I also had it on my new Lumia 930 which ran the official 8.1 release. Now that I've updated to Update 1 it's smooth again :)

  • Finally WP8,1 GDR1 FOLDER!!!!

    Remarkable choice to keep the it a folder when there is only one app tile left in it, especially when you didn't do any effort to give it a name... For the rest a nice feature :)
