Nokia Cinemagraph gets updated to version 4.0

Nokia Cinemagraph gets updated to version 4.0
Cinemagraphs are pretty awesome, let's just start there. A cinemagraph is essentially a GIF that wants to be more artistic, which is the reason for the different word. GIFs can be a lot of things, but they are rarely subtle, and that's where cinemagraphs step in. Nokia is very proud of the cameras that it puts on its Lumia devices, so it has also made a Cinemagraph app for those handsets, and that app got an update today.

The big addition to the app is the option to now export your cinemagraph as a GIF, which will then be saved into your Saved Pictures album on your device. This should make it quite a bit easier to share your creations, because before you would have to export your cinemagraph to the Nokia Memories website, and then download the GIF from there when you're on a computer. Unfortunately, something was going wrong in our testing, because it would only export as a JPG, which completely kills the point of a cinemagraph. Word has it that the GIFs can be quite large though, upwards of 18-20MB. 

The update also adds location data for better integration with Nokia Storyteller, and the usual set of undisclosed performance improvements. If you've got yourself a Lumia device running Windows Phone 8, you can get the update in the Windows Phone Store.

Nokia Microsoft will now avoid paying licenses for Android. Then microsoft take out licenses for this Linux variant. Really wonder if China and India, with nice big manufacturers like Huawee and Micromax will allow the deal between Microsoft and Nokia. Will India and China regerinar really allow the store when the risk to knock out their entire phone industry? It's not fair if microsoft nokia avoid paying licenses

This was the first app on wp8 that drew me away from android believe it or not. I remember when the 920 was announced and this app was being shown I had to have it. Great app that has gotten better.
