  • Video and Music Xbox apps separated into two apps
  • New Store layout, as we recently reported

  • IE tabs are displayed in multitask view
  • Pull down to close apps in multitask
  • New stock Photos app, with sections All, Albums, Favorites now on separate panels

  • Apps that are installed on the device: Storage Sense, Battery Sense, Data Sense have posted another video from their captured Nokia Lumia 630.

This video shows the process of Start Screen customization, in particular background images.

The video shows that users will be able to crop pictures from their own library, meaning they will not be stuck will a small collection of pre-selected images, which can of course be both a good and a bad thing.
