Ello is an ad-free social networking service that was launched back in March 2014. According to an email sent to windows central, the company is planning to release applications for Windows Phone, iPhone and Android phones. Here is the email they sent,
We are working on Ello mobile apps for iPhones, Androids, AND Window’s Phones! :) We’ll send out a newsletter when each is released so that you know when they are available to use. Once the app is out, Ello should run more smoothly on mobile devices. We believe a social network can be a tool for empowerment. Not a tool to deceive, coerce and manipulate — but a place to connect, create and celebrate life. You are not a product.
Right now Ello is an invitation only service and the company never revealed the number of current users on the site. However the company has generated a whopping 5.5 million dollars in venture capital investment. It has also generated a significant revenue through T-shirt sales.

Some of our mobile experts say they’re having problems with VoLTE on Verizon but we cannot prove anything until Microsoft comes out and comments on this situation.

Wireless charging flip shell CP-627 review for the Nokia Lumia 830
So the 830 is a feature packed phone but you can increase its functionality by adding wireless charging shell.
CP-627 Wireless charging
The CP-627 enables wireless charging in the 830. Using it is very simple – just lay your phone on the wireless charging plate and the battery will start charging without using any troublesome charging cables.
Microfiber lining protects screen
The microfiber lining inside the CP-627 case protects the display from getting scratched. The micro fiber lining is beautifully stitched and it keeps that beautiful 5 inch display clean.
Protects the device
The wireless charging flip shell clips securely to the back of the 830 and it folks over to provide excellent protection from drops and bumps.
Price of shell
Microsoft sells it mere 25 pounds and is available in grey, orange and green colors. It will go on sale on October.
Do you own a Nokia Lumia 530 and looking for an elegant way to protect that display? Well Nokia sells an official flip shell case for it and it does a great job. Called the Nokia CC-3087, the shell features a standard shell that replaces the rear shell of the phone, thus not adding any bulk to the phone.
At the same time you get instant access to all the buttons, audio jack and micro USB port. It is offered in three colors Orange, Green and Dark Grey and that that is shown in this review is in green color.
We really recommend changing the color theme of your live tile to match the shell’s color.
The flip shell for the Nokia Lumia 530 has attractive, nice and functional design. It definitely adds a new twist to the idea of a shell to your new Lumia 530. We liked it and hope you too will like it.
It retails for 20 pounds including VAT and is definitely an excellent option to add protection as well as little style to your Lumia 530 windows phone.
