Microsoft's recently acquired Nokia devices and services division has launched Video Tuner, a video editing app for Windows Phone 8.1 smartphones.
The Video Tuner app for Windows Phone 8.1 brings some more video-editing tools over the ones that are already available in Microsoft's Movie Moments app. Features like cropping, trimming, mirroring, and flipping are included, alongside the options to add music and video filters. To be note however, is that MixRadio and Xbox Music files are not supported by the app.
Available from the Windows Phone Store, the Video Turner app also sports adjusting exposure, contrast, and saturation tweaks. Microsoft has also introduced a speed-change option in the app, which is thought to be in response to the iPhone 5's slow-motion video feature. The edited videos can be shared to popular social networks and can be stored in the Microsoft's OneDrive cloud storage.
It is worth noting that the launch of this app coincides with the launch of the Nokia Lumia 930, which is said to have already reached some countries.
Talking about Windows Phone apps, on Wednesday, Twitter rolled-out a major update to its Windows Phone app with some new features as well as some UI tweaks.
The updated Twitter app now sports a bigger navigation bar; improved reply, retweet, and favourite interface; in-line images feature, and the ability to upload multiple images.
Microsoft has been trying to bring more apps to the Windows Phone Store, apart from pushing for existing app updates, like the recently introduced BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) app under private beta.
The BBM app for Windows Phone beta version 126.96.36.199 can be downloaded via an invitation only from the Windows Phone Store. The app is 11MB in size and is compatible with Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone 8.1 devices.
