Nokia Glance updated with Windows Phone 8.1 support

In case you needed another proof that Windows Phone 8.1's coming soon, Nokia updated its Glance app to support the next version of Microsoft’s mobile OS. The app’s official page clearly shows that its newest feature is “support for Windows Phone 8.1”, so there should be no doubt that this is what Microsoft will call the platform’s upcoming iteration.

Earlier this week, Microsoft almost posted the features of Windows Phone 8.1 on its website, only to remove any reference to the new OS shortly after that.

As most Nokia users probably know, Glance is an app that lets you view time and notifications while your handset is in standby mode. The app is free (of course) and can be downloaded at the source link below.

Microsoft will most probably launch Windows Phone 8.1 next month, during, or after its Build Conference that takes place between April 2 and April 4. You can read this article to see what the new version of Windows Phone is supposed to bring us.

I'm looking forward to seeing how much 8.1 will improve my 1020

If someone like you was smart enough to buy a 1020, then I'm 100% positive that someone like you will see, and understand, the major improvements of WP8.1....... ........................... Your patience, and self confidence, will be rewarded accordingly..

You want people to believe your word, Microsoft?

They won't just believe, they'll know. Just because someone likes WP doesn't automatically make them a Microsoft CEO.

No, I am CEO!!!.... Lol!... That's why this pathetic troll can't tell me a $hiznit... He's just to stupid to see that.

Your comments, I'm talking about. And such isn't caused by an OS, it's caused by your decision.

Its not my decision. WP elicits such comments.

A half-witted comeback. It happens when you try to fight a losing battle. Looks like I've overestimated your intelligence. Note: keep in mind that you've admitted to being dumb.

Comeback? Battle? "Looks like I've overestimated your intelligence. " You're in no position to estimate anyone's intelligence, considering the fact that you support WP and let Microsoft own you. "Note: keep in mind that you've admitted to being dumb." Where?

Comeback: you're trying to tell me that you're dumbness is caused by an OS. Battle: whether or not your source of dumbness is true. " You're in no position to estimate anyone's intelligence, considering the fact that you support WP and let Microsoft own you." I don't support any OS. I LIKE, not support. I don't let anyone own me. I like using many MS products (Windows, Skype, Office, etc). I get what I pay for. Other companies do the same. Just because I don't hate the brand you hate doesn't mean that I "let"them own me. "Where?" Comment 21 and 25.

"Comeback: you're trying to tell me that you're dumbness is caused by an OS. Battle: whether or not your source of dumbness is true." I'm trying to tell the OS is dumb, and you assume this, along with another assumption. "I like using many MS products (Windows, Skype, Office, etc)" I don't see WP there. "I get what I pay for." You DON'T get what you pay for (WP). "Just because I don't hate the brand you hate doesn't mean that I "let"them own me." They own you not because you don't share my distaste. "Comment 21 and 25" Read again. Those are not statements of admission.

" I'm trying to tell the OS is dumb, and you assume this, along with another assumption." Read comment 23. " I don't see WP there." The products I've listed are owned by MS, I don't let the company own me as you say. If MS owns me, they'd "own"you too. " They own you not because you don't share my distaste" They don't own me at all. " Read again. Those are not statements of admission." I meant comments 23 and 25. You haven't read them. You'd accept if you did.

"Read comment 23." Still doesn't fit into your concept/hypothesis of 'comeback' and 'battle'. "The products I've listed are owned by MS" I see that. What i don't see is Windows Phone on that list. "I don't let the company own me as you say. If MS owns me, they'd "own"you too." They would be, if i'm not rebelling, as i do. "They don't own me at all." Doesn't appear that way. "I meant comments 23 and 25." Still no statements of admission there. "You haven't read them." I did. "You'd accept if you did." I don't accept because i DID read, for the sake of correctness.

Comment 23 says, " I've been using WP for long."which was a response to " Now you've made yourself look dumber.", which you were trying to say that using WP made you dumber. " I see that. What i don't see is Windows Phone on that list." Because I don't use WP. And how does owning a WP mean MS owns the users? " They would be, if i'm not rebelling, as i do." They may be owning you, but they certainly don't owe me, even if I have a WP. " Still no statements of admission there." I've talked about comment 23. Comment 25 says, "Its not my decision. WP elicits such comments." which is a response to " Your comments, I'm talking about. And such isn't caused by an OS, it's caused by your decision." That is, your decision to own a phone with the OS you hate, caused your dumbness. "I did". If you did then you'd accept the fact that you've admitted to being dumb.

"Comment 23 says, " I've been using WP for long."which was a response to " Now you've made yourself look dumber.", which you were trying to say that using WP made you dumber." Ha! "I've been using WP for long" was to imply that i know what i say/was saying about WP. But you're right. It does dumb the users down. "If you did then you'd accept the fact that you've admitted to being dumb." I think i've explained. "Because I don't use WP." Then how is it that you "like" the platform, without using it. "And how does owning a WP mean MS owns the users?" If one owns a WP phone, a platform which is lacking in many areas and there are clearly other better choices and one which MS severely restricts for certain/whatever reasons, and the user claims/promotes it as a superior platform, they and the ones who believ it, are being tricked by MS. "They may be owning you" No. And i explained. "but they certainly don't owe me, even if I have a WP." If you had a Windows phone and rebel, then they don't. "I've talked about comment 23. Comment 25 says, "Its not my decision. WP elicits such comments." which is a response to " Your comments, I'm talking about. And such isn't caused by an OS, it's caused by your decision." That is, your decision to own a phone with the OS you hate, caused your dumbness." "WP elicits such comments" as in "WP draws comments of hate." Thats not a statement of admission.

"Ha! "I've been using WP for long" was to imply that i know what i say/was saying about WP. But you're right. It does dumb the users down." The way you responded, made it seem like using the OS you hate made you dumber. And I did not say that it dumbs the users down, I said "you were trying to say that using WP made you dumber.". Yes you may have been dumbed down, but that is not because of the OS, it's because of your decision. "I think i've explained." I've explained, above. "If one owns a WP phone, a platform which is lacking in many areas and there are clearly other better choices and one which MS severely restricts for certain/whatever reasons, and the user claims/promotes it as a superior platform, they and the ones who believ it, are being tricked by MS." This is a matter of preference, as well as devices that are "better choices". Most likely, WP users tried other platforms. "Then how is it that you "like" the platform, without using it." I didn't say I like the platform. "No. And I explained" "If you had a Windows phone and rebel, then they don't." In your logic, they are more likely to own you since you're actually using the platform, while I'm not. ""WP elicits such comments" as in "WP draws comments of hate."" Maybe, because The comments are most likely by those who'd hate to see that WP is growing and feeling threatened. And it is your decision that made you dumb. Admittance. *

"Maybe he has no legs.... Lol!" If someone has no legs, you laugh? Use that as a funny/amusing statement? Pathetic.

laughing at someone who has no legs is classed as a very bad person inside a bad hart
