Users unable to install Instagram app for Windows 10 Mobile due to not meeting hardware requirements

instagram

Instagram recently updated their Windows 10 Mobile app, but it seems the update caused more problems than it solved.

Many users are complaining that they are unable to install the software, with their device complaining:

“To use this app you need a device with more functionality. For more detailed information, see Additional Information -> Hardware Requirements “

The issue occurs on devices ranging from the Lumia 550 to the Lumia 950, so unless the software is being redesigned for the Surface Phone we suspect another store bug is the issue.

Are our readers running into this issue? Let us know below.

Not all Windows Phones are certified for NFC Payments

hce-banking-approve

While it was news that even one Windows Phone in USA could use tap to pay, it turns out that not all Windows Phone owners will be able to take advantage of this feature even when it rolls out publicly, even if your phone has NFC.

MasterCard’s approved list of HCE-enabled devices show only a few devices certified, including:

  • Lumia 640 XL (non-LTE)
  • Lumia 650
  • Lumia 650 Dual SIM
  • Lumia 950
  • Lumia 950 Dual SIM
  • Lumia 950 XL
  • Lumia 950 XL Dual SIM

If you have a Lumia 1520 for example you are out of luck, despite the great specs of the handset.

The need for the devices to go through an approval process means that in some ways Windows Phone users will remain at both the whim of the OEM and the banks when it comes to testing and certification, which is generally not good news. Hopefully OEMs like HP and Acer will go through this process at least with their higher end devices.

With the Lumia 640 still the most popular handset in USA (and not on that list) do our readers feel cheated? Let us know below.

Try These 10 Unobvious Galaxy S7 Features

The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are packed with so many features that sometimes a few will go overlooked. Jared went through to find some of the most useful features and highlighted them in this video.

Display Scaling
Condense the DPI on your device to fit more information on your display with a simple app called Display Scaling. All this app does is bring up a menu that you can also access by making a shortcut.

Auto Reboot
In settings, you can set custom times for your phone to reboot. This keeps your phone running fresh and it’s always a good idea to give it a reboot every now and then anyways. Choose the date and time that you would like your phone to automatically reboot.

vlcsnap-2016-06-15-08h46m39s737

Notification Reminder
In accessibility, you can turn on notification reminders for specific apps. This will prompt your notifications to show up again after you’ve dismissed them the first time.

Store Specific App Files on Your SD Card
In application manager, push your app files to your SD card to free up internal storage space.

Multiple Lock Screen Wallpapers         
There’s no need to have to go and change your wallpaper every time to want to change up your lock screen. You can set multiple images as your wallpaper and your phone will cycle through them every time you wake your screen.

vlcsnap-2016-06-15-08h49m25s910

Transfer Apps to  a New Home Screen
It can be a bit of a pain to move your app shortcuts from one screen to another, if you have to move one individual app at a time. Instead, drag your apps to the top of the screen and they will be placed into a temporary dock. Slide to the home screen that you want to drop them on and drag them back down.

vlcsnap-2016-06-15-08h49m55s016

Assistant Menu
Toggle the assistant menu to get quick access to some very useful features. Now you’ll have a floating menu that has access to screenshots, notification menu and more.

vlcsnap-2016-06-15-08h50m11s796

Sound Detectors
Interrupt your music session when your phone detects crying babies and ringing doorbells. Once you activate this feature, your phone will be listening for specific sounds and you’ll be notified once it hears one.

vlcsnap-2016-06-15-08h51m16s763

Easy Screen Turn On
Toggle Easy Screen Turn On so you can wake your phone screen by waving your hand over it.

vlcsnap-2016-06-15-08h51m35s333

Add Actions to Launch Events
Trigger custom events by setting your phone to notice specific actions. There are tons of customization options with this. Think of it as a very watered down and easy version of Tasker.

If any of these features look awesome to you, the video will go into detail about how to get any of these setup!

Keyboard and mouse support for Xbox One is still “months away”

chrome_2016-06-13_17-39-52

Back in February, Microsoft’s Phil Spencer announced that the company is working on bringing full keyboard and mouse support to the Xbox One. Now, in a recent interview, Phil Spencer stated that the company is currently internally testing keyboard support. However, according to Phil, mouse support is a “little bit further away.” He also stated that the full support is still “months away,” which isn’t too bad:

I keep talking about it in the press and my platform team keeps shaking their head, because they… Truthfully in our dev kit modes now keyboard works, mouse support is a little bit further away. I say it because I know it’s not years away, it’s more like months away, but we don’t have an exact date yet.

So keyboard and mouse support is coming soon to the Xbox One. It’s a few months away, but it’s coming. If you happen to own an Xbox, are you excited about this feature?

LG G5 on T-Mobile Bears Unlockable Bootloader After All

LG G5

The recent Galaxy S7 Bootloader-gate for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 variants, especially on US carriers like T-Mobile which are usually bootloader-unlock-friendly, gave a lot of people a reason to be vary of their purchase decisions.

So when it surfaced that the LG G5 on T-Mobile might be a victim of the same, a lot of people were worried. Afterall, this eliminated the chances of any development happening on the device. Ofcourse, an unlocked bootloader will not make these Snapdragon 820 devices comparable to a Nexus, but having an unlocked bootloader will give atleast some freedom in how you can use your device, with root and custom kernels being easier to obtain.

With the first batch of the LG G5’s reaching the consumers hands (thanks to T-Mobile delivering its pre-orders 2 days earlier), it has come to light that the bootloader is actually unlockable. To everyone’s relief, the procedure is also straightforward, akin to a Nexus.LG G5 Bootloader Unlock

This opens up the LG G5 on T-Mobile a definitive Edge (heh, get it?) over the Samsung devices sold in the US. While we agree that power users make but a very small portion of LG and Samsung’s market share, having an option for those who care is certainly a good turn of events.

LG G5 users on T-Mobile will still have to wait for TWRP to land on the device, not because it is difficult, but mainly because none have volunteered for the task so far. Once you get a custom recovery, obtaining root will be a cakewalk.

We’re certainly happy to see the LG G5 on T-Mobile being power user friendly. If you’re looking for a flagship device with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, this is one of the better choices you can lay your hands on right now!
