Excitement was running high after yesterday's opening act of Microsoft's annual conference, Build 2014, with an audience of 5,000 developers. However, day one has come to an end, and all the hype built over what to expect was no overreaction. Microsoft lived up to everyone's expectations, unfolding many great features, phone and software updates, and other fun revelations.
Hang on to your seats, as we provide a rundown of Build 2014, day one’s highlights:
The new Windows 8.1, as predicted, has been designed to accommodate the needs of both touch-screen devices and traditional PC desktops alike. To ensure all types of users are satisfied, mouse/keyboard commands have been adjusted to make usage easier and more convenient.
This set of apps is further proof of Microsoft's attempt to improve the desktop PC user experience. Originally, they were set to run on smartphones and tablets, and are now programmed to run on Windows' desktop. To make life easier, the app, once downloaded, can be synced to all device platforms.
The return of the beloved Start menu will come as a relief to all Windows 8 users, who found the change in Windows 8 problematic and “user-unfriendly.”
These are exciting times for developers, as Microsoft has permitted developers to play around with the new Lock screens, giving them the freedom to unleash their creativity.
Microsoft has become more thoughtful in terms of giving Windows a more personal touch, enabling users to custom-design the background images for their Live Tiles.
Wi-Fi and performance
Microsoft's newest Sense--Wi-Fi Sense--is an addition to a series of Sense features tailored to improve device performance. This Sense in particular allows for safer and easier public and home Wi-Fi connection.
This exhilarating and long-awaited feature is Microsoft's take on the personal digital assistant, codenamed “Cortana.” Microsoft has outdone not only itself, but Apple and Google as well. It stepped up its game, implementing the features that function well in the already existing assistants, and improving those that don't, as well as adding a few new features to fill any holes. “Cortana” promises to be a reliable and efficient asset, specifically customized to your needs, and most importantly, “she” is not so nosy.
Windows Phone 8.1 is expected to be available on new handsets this April and May. Nokia, the mobile manufacturer that came up on stage to present its Lumia 930 and 630 handsets, will be running Windows Phone 8.1.
To add to all these incredibly enticing features, Microsoft has gone one step further, making Windows free for all devices that have screens smaller than 9 inches, which includes phones and tablets.
So much excitement, and so much to look forward to. Enthusiastic users will be grateful they only have to wait until April 8 to get their hands on the first of Microsoft's goodies.
Let Build 2014, day two, begin!
