Now in version 126.96.36.199, Lumia Storyteller gets updated with the following features:
- Select folders for Storyteller content
- ‘No music’ option for story videos
- Long press for context menu
- Improved offline support for maps

Remember Nokia Refocus? We may not feature this app regularly, but Refocus is part of the Nokia photo app collection that allows users to shoot photos in a different way. With Nokia Refocus, you can take photos and choose how you want to focus it later – perfect app for those who want that bokeh effect in their images. We had received an update for Nokia Refocus this week, and guess what? The app gets rebranded after installing the latest version!
The app is now called Lumia Refocus, but so far, other features remained the same. Lumia Refocus lets you take a photo first and choose what you want in focus later. It’s perfect when you’re shooting close-ups of your subject because it allows you to show depth in your photos, and then change the focal point if you want. You can also add great effects like ‘All in Focus’ and ‘Color Pop’.
When you’re done, share your interactive Refocus photos via social media like Facebook, Twitter etc, as well as email and messaging – all you need is a OneDrive account. The application first uploads your photos to OneDrive and then creates a link that you can share with friends so they can play around and change the focus themselves.
You can share Refocus photos over Wi-Fi or a cellular data connection, so be sure to check your network operator’s data charges first.
