New FL Studio Mobile offering in the Windows Store for on the go music editing

Windows 10 Mobile has been a mixed bag of development when it comes to app support. While Windows 10 Mobile inherited the downward trend of failing app support, the newest iteration of Microsoft’s mobile operating system is leveraging the foundation of its more developer inviting bigger brother Windows 10, to varying degrees of success to entice mobile app support.

Some bigger name app developers have taken the bait and created Universal Windows Platform apps that span both PCs and Mobile devices and adding to the list of interested developers is FL Studio.

Formerly Fruity Loops, FL Studio has offered a modern PC version of its app in the Windows Store beginning with Windows 8 development. Admittedly, the new FL Studio app for Windows PCs has seen few updates and feature additions since its arrival in the Windows Store, but the developers newest project may circumvent the stagnation.

Thanks to a tip from WinBeta reader Amir, we now know FL Studio is offering a new app titled FL Studio Mobile in the Windows Store that is promising a better full-featured experience for Windows users.

According to the app features list:

Features

  • Fully functional music production Application. Record edit and sequence music.
  • For those of us still wielding Windows 10 Mobile powered phones, the addition of FL Studio Mobile could be a godsend, especially for the quick track edit, impromptu podcast, or cleaning up the occasionally recorded class lecture.

    A note to those interested, the app is listed at a surprising $14.99 for download with a tag about in-app purchases. While $14.99 for a quality app should not be surprising, the fact that the older Windows 8 PC version of the app remains free for download makes the listed price of FL Studio Mobile a bit of a head scratcher.

    It also appears there is a redeem code option for those who can find a code.

Windows 10 Mobile build 14977 adds improved Cortana Quiet Hours, alarm settings, and much more

Microsoft released Windows 10 Mobile Insider build 14977 this morning, with the ability to read EPUB ebooks in Edge on mobile devices. PCs are left out this time due to a blocking bug, and so all of the improvements and fixes are for Windows phones only.

Here’s the complete list of what’s been fixed and improved in Windows 10 Mobile Insider build 14977:

  • We’ve changed the rendering technology used for many types of UWP app content, so please provide feedback through the Feedback Hub if you notice any new visual glitches in UWP apps.
  • Alarms sent by 3rd party alarm apps will now break through Cortana’s Quiet Hours – we appreciate all the app developers who logged feedback requesting this, keep it coming!
  • We’ve removed the top-level option in Notification Settings to disable alarms on the lock screen – alarm reliability is a top priority for us, and we’ve found this setting was frequently enabled accidentally, without awareness that it would stop alarms from waking the phone when the phone was locked. For those who still wish to enable this setting, it’s will continue to be available under the per-app notification settings.
  • Notifications from Settings can now be customized or disabled – option is available under Settings > System > Notifications > Settings
  • We have enabled OAuth support for Yahoo Mail accounts. This will improve sync reliability for those accounts, and provide a secure experience while browsing your email.
  • We fixed an issue where disconnecting and reconnecting a wired headset while watching a video might result the audio no longer working.
  • We fixed an issue Insiders may have experienced where certain music apps would unexpectedly stop playing music after a single song.
  • We fixed an issue where closing a tab in Microsoft Edge, exiting the app, and then relaunching it would sometimes result in Edge opening to a blank page with the closed tab’s web address in the URL bar.
  • We fixed an issue where the Start Settings page wasn’t rendering when opened on external screen while using Continuum.
  • We’ve made a number of translation improvements, including, for French (France and Canada) speakers, fixing a grammatical error in the “Don’t Forget!” text seen when shutting down the phone so it now says “N’oubliez pas”, and for Chinese speakers, fixing an issue where the option to clear the Chinese Input Method Editor’s input history was displaying in English rather than Chinese. If you see any other translations that aren’t as you’d expect, please log feedback – we’re listening!
  • We fixed an issue where, if the setting to show notifications above lock had been turned off, booting the device and immediately checking the Action Center while the phone was locked could result in the Action Center not displaying any notifications after the phone had been unlocked.
  • We fixed an issue Insiders may have experienced where the Camera app might not appear after using the hardware camera button while the screen was off or while on the Glance screen.
  • We fixed an issue where Bangla (Bangladesh) keyboard text prediction might stop working after entering character followed by a vowel mark.

That’s not a terribly short list of fixes and improvements, and so if you’re using a Windows 10 Mobile device on the Insiders Fast Ring, then go hit that update button. Let us know in the comments if you run across anything else that’s been fixed or improved.

Here’s everything that’s new in Windows 10 Insider build 14965 for PC and Mobile

Image result for Here’s everything that’s new in Windows 10 Insider build 14965 for PC and Mobile

Head of the Windows 10 Insider program Dona Sarkar has pushed her big red build release button today, granting eager testers a chance to play around with a new version of Windows 10. Windows 10 preview 14965 is currently rolling out to Insidersand here is a long list of new items for all to play with:

What’s new in Build 14965

Controlling external monitors from tablets just got easier (PC): You can now drive content on a second display from your tablet without ever having to attach a mouse. The virtual touchpad lets you do more with a tablet and a second screen – just connect to another monitor, PC, or TV, go to Action Center and tap on the “Project” Quick Action to extend your screen. Use it just like you would a physical touchpad to control content on the connected screen. To enable it, press and hold on the taskbar and

select “Show touchpad button”. A touchpad icon will now appear in the notification area (just like Windows Ink Workspace does), and tapping on it will bring it up the virtual touchpad.

You’ve seen the work we’ve been doing for precision touchpad customization with the last few builds, and the virtual touchpad is no exception. While the virtual touchpad is open, go to Settings > Devices > Touchpad and you’ll be able to tweak the touchpad settings to your preferences.

Sticky Notes update (PC): Windows Insiders in the Fast ring will receive will receive Sticky Notes app update to version 1.2.9.0 today and we’re very excited to share what it includes!

  • We’ve expanded our support for Insights to many more languages and regions, with even more to come in further updates, stay tuned! Specifically, with this version:
    • We’ve added flight detection for Germany (Germany), in more English locales (Canada, Great Britain, India, Arabia), Spanish (Spain & Mexico), French (France, Canada), Italian (Italy), Japanese (Japan), and Portuguese (Brazil).
    • We’ve added email & URL recognition for every locale (except Chinese (simplified or traditional), Korean, or Japanese, which we’re still working on).
    • We’ve added phone number recognition to all English, German, Spanish, French and Italian locales.
    • We’ve added address recognition support for English (Great Britain) and Spanish (United States).
    • We’ve added time recognition (prompting to create a Cortana reminder) to English (Great Britain), English (Australia) and English (India).
    • We’ve added stock recognition (for example, $MSFT) to English (Australia), English (Canada), English (India), German (Germany), Spanish (Spain), Spanish (Mexico), French (France), French (Canada), Japanese (Japan) and Portuguese (Brazil).
  • If Insights in Sticky Notes isn’t turned on automatically for you, tap “…” > Settings gear > “Enable insights”. Note: The language and region used to detect Insights in Sticky Notes is based off of the active keyboard. We’re currently investigating some issues where Insights may not show up as expected if you switch keyboards while typing in Sticky Notes.
  • We’ve fixed some issues with Undo and Redo (CTRL + Z/CTRL + Y) while typing, so they’ll now do so more reliably.
  • We’ve improved the performance of text input while typing.
  • It’s now easier than ever to get the latest Sticky Notes app updates. When our next update is available, we’ll show an in-app prompt so all you have to do is click ‘Update’.
  • We’ve also done a whole lot of UI/UX polishing and performance improvements that we hope you enjoy.

We’re been making a bunch of improvements based on your feedback, and have more to come, so let us know what you’d like to see next! In recent versions of Sticky Notes, we’ve added support for many of your favorite keyboard shortcuts, including CTRL + B (bold), CTRL + I (italic), CTRL + N (new note) and CTRL + D (delete note), added a new context menu for easy copy/paste, reduced the minimum note size for typists, as well as generally improved our reliability and performance.

Windows Ink Workspace Improvements (PC): This build includes a number of improvements to the Windows Ink Workspace.

  • We increased the number of Recently Used apps shown in the Windows Ink Workspace to 6, and added a link to quickly access your pen settings.
  • We’ve improved the performance of loading Sketchpad when there’s a lot of ink present on the sketch.
  • We’ve updated the new protractor, so that you can use the scroll-wheel on your mouse to shrink/expand it (depending on the direction of the scrolling).
  • We fixed an issue where, when using Sticky Notes in the Windows Ink Workspace, the background would ding when tapped.
  • We fixed an issue where inking and resizing the protractor at the same time would result in Sketchpad crashing.
  • We’ve updated the “Pen & Windows Ink” Settings for pen users to now include a link to the handwriting training tool – simply click on “Get to know my handwriting” to launch it. We’ve also improved how we learn from your handwriting samples – try it out and let us know what you think!

Enhancing the Address Bar in Registry Editor (PC): We were really excited to hear how excited you were about the new address bar in Registry Editor, and based on your feedback, we’ve already incorporated two new features:

  1. You can now use CTRL + L to set focus to the address bar – while we already supported ALT + D, we recognize that some people prefer this keyboard shortcut instead, so now you have the option to use either one
  2. You can now use shorthand notation for HKEY names – you told us that when sharing registry paths you always use shorthand notation (HKCU) instead of typing out the full HKEY name (i.e. HKEY_CURRENT_USER), so we should support them in the address bar, and you know what? We agree! You can now just use “HKCR”, “HKCU”, “HKLM”, and “HKU” instead of typing or pasting the respective full name “HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT”, “HKEY_CURRENT_USER”, “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE”, or “HKEY_USERS” into the address bar.

Improving Your Hyper-V VM experience (PC): Following the new VM scaling options mentioned in last week’s build, we’ve fixed an issue where depending on the zoom level selected, the VM window might not be created large enough to avoid scrollbars, despite there being enough space for it. We also updated the logic so that when you pick a particular zoom level, that zoom level preference will be preserved for the next VM connection. Along the way, we fixed an issue where the title bar of a maximized VM window would be occluded when taskbar had been set to on top.

While it may not be many of the cool new features shown during the Creators Update reveal a few weeks ago, the Windows team looks to be delivering a solid release offering with this build.

Bing Predicts missed badly on the U.S. elections, and here’s Microsoft’s response

Image result for Bing Predicts missed badly on the U.S. elections, and here’s Microsoft’s response

As most of the world knows by now, Republican nominee Donald Trump won the Presidential Elections of 2016 this morning against Democratic Hillary Clinton. The sudden sweep of red states was an unexpected game changer in the election and almost everybody missed the mark, even Bing.

Bing Predicts is known for calculating the outcomes of popular global events such as sports championships, entertainment awards, and legislative elections. In this particular case, Bing saw fit to grant Clinton the win with a comfortable margin. We even saw Bing Predicts give as high as 90% probability in the lady’s favor. But as the night went on, it dwindled to leave Trump with the majority of electoral votes and the presidency on the horizon.

WinBeta reached out to Microsoft for an answer to exactly how Bing was so far off the outcome. A spokesperson replied:

“Bing Predicts uses several sources including search, web, social data, third-parties and more to inform predictions. True to the nature of all predictions, we can never guarantee 100% accuracy.”

Bing wasn’t the only prediction to guess wrongly. In fact, most major news and analysist predictions were shocked to see just how wrong they were when the results came in from yesterday’s polls.

What does this mean for Bing Predicts? Probably nothing. Simply put, the system can only calculate with data that it is given like we explained here. After all, computers are only as intelligent as mankind creates them to be.

The Unified Update Platform for Windows 10 is bringing faster, targeted OS updates

Image result for The Unified Update Platform for Windows 10 is bringing faster, targeted OS updates

Microsoft is today announcing the latest iteration in of their Windows as a Service program for Windows 10. Due to the frequency of OS updates, the change will bring faster and smaller OS updates that are targeted to a user’s PC or mobile device.

The Unified Update Platform (UUP) is a new set of technologies that allows for “differential downloads,” which in layman’s terms means targeted OS updates. An existing analogy is how games in the Windows Stores that are 60GB on initial download have updates that are only a few gigabytes in size instead of having to redownload the entire game.

Now, that same principle is being applied to OS updates with a significant reduction in OS updates for milestone releases.

In a blog post detailing the changes Microsoft explains how it works:

A differential download package contains only the changes that have been made since the last time you updated your device, rather than a full build. As we rollout UUP, this will eventually be impactful for PCs where users can expect their download size to decrease by approximately 35% when going from one major update of Windows to another. We’re working on this now with the goal of supporting this for feature updates after the Windows 10 Creators Update; Insiders will see this sooner.

Besides smaller download packages for OS update, Microsoft is also improving the logic behind OS update checks. Currently, checking for an OS update results in a somewhat long ‘check’ to the server due to the update data being sent back and forth. Starting with UUP updates will now be more efficient “because more processing is being done by the service, this will lead to faster checks for update operations.”

Finally, there is another change for Mobile users. In the past, new mobile devices would start at a base build and sometimes require “two hops” to get to the latest release. This behavior was different from PC where the device could update right to the most recent OS with no delay. Now, Mobile will behave more like PC with direct “one hop” updates to whatever is the latest release.

Microsoft’s UUP starts rolling out in stages today starting with Insiders on Windows 10 Mobile and later this year for PC Insiders. The public, the non-Insider release will occur between the Creators Update early next year and the second OS update due later in 2017.

It is important to note that there will be no visual changes to OS updates. The experience is simply going to improve regarding faster update checks and smaller package downloads, starting today with Mobile for Insiders.

Windows 10 build 14959 now available for Insiders on PC and Mobile

Microsoft has just started rolling out Windows 10 build 14959, the latest preview build for Insiders in the fast ring on PC and phone. Today’s build features more improvements under the hood, bug fixes and other small changes on the surface.

In what’s probably the biggest change this week, Microsoft has started rolling out its new Unified Update Platform, available for Mobile insiders today, which makes downloading new builds faster by simply downloading the new bits needed, rather than a full build.

What’s new

  • Unified Update Platform: This build for Mobile is being published using our new update publishing system called Unified Update Platform (UUP).
  • Controlling the Display Scaling of your Virtual Machines (PC):  We’ve heard your feedback that Hyper-V Virtual Machines sometimes aren’t scaled as you’d expect, so we’ve added a new Zoom option in the View menu, where you can override the default scaling and set it to 100, 125, 150 or 200 – whichever matches your preference. Along the way, we also fixed an issue where certain VMs wouldn’t display the remote desktop connection bar after entering full screen mode. We are still refining the experience so there might be some rough edges. For example, although we added zoom levels to handle high DPI more gracefully, when zooming you won’t be able to see the VM’s whole screen without scrolling.

Improvements for PC

  • fixed an issue for Insiders resulting in the automatic brightness setting unexpectedly being turned off after upgrading. In doing so, we’ve re-enabled automatic brightness adjust for users that have never changed their auto-brightness setting. If you have already manually configured your auto-brightness setting, then this fix will not affect you. If you would like to enable or disable automatic brightness adjustment, please go to Settings > System > Display, where you can adjust your preferences.
  • fixed an issue Insiders on domain connected PCs may have experienced where login might fail when the computer was disconnected from its domain network.
  • fixed an issue resulting in certain apps, such as Outlook Mail and Calendar, failing to update for some Insiders with the error code 0x800700B7.
  • fixed an issue for Insiders with certain device models where ejecting an SD card might result in a system crash.
  • fixed an issue where disliking one of the Spotlight lock screen images would show the new image immediately, followed by a transition animation from the previous image to the new image.
  • fixed an issue where launching an app from another app while in Tablet mode no longer launched it side by side, and instead launched it fullscreen (for example, when launching a web link from the MSN News app).

Improvements for phone

  • The data usage page in Settings via Settings > Network & wireless > Data usage has been updated with performance and UI improvements.
  • We fixed issues preventing Insiders from adding cards to Wallet and paying using tap to pay.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in being unexpectedly able to close Start in the task switcher.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in certain options for default calling app via Settings > System > Phone > Default apps from being unexpectedly missing.
  • We fixed an issue causing apps that play media in the background, such as Groove Music, to stop when Battery Saver turns on.
  • We fixed an issue Insiders may have experienced where the phone would get into a state where copy/paste wouldn’t work until the device had been restarted.
  • We fixed an issue where Settings might hang after unchecking “Let apps automatically use this VPN connection” in VPN Settings.
