The team behind webOS released their plans they had for a complete UI redesign. Unfortunately we will probably not see those as webOS was abandoned by HP some time ago and I’m not sure if the Open webOS project will continue with the redesign.
Most parts of the redesign look great. Everything is flat (looks like they were one of the first ones to go flat :D) and it would have been nice seeing it in action.

If you’re an iOS user and like to create paper prototypes this app could be for you. Marvel allows you to take a picture of your sketch and create interactive prototypes by linking screens together.
I remember hearing about such an app and think for interacting with paper prototypes it’s perfect – only problem is, it’s iOS only ;)

With Windows Phone 8.1 Microsoft finally added a notification center to their mobile operating system.
From what I have seen so far it’s almost completely the same as on Android ;)
Still, my favorite notification center is the BlackBerry 10 Hub. It’s just more powerful as it’s not only a notification center but a communication center.
Still, it was time that WP also got one and with the quick actions, it’s at least as good as on iOS and Android!

Even though Apple’s Passbook is not open source or even an (open) industry standard it’s available for Android too. Now it seems that it even expanded to Windows Phone as Tom Warren spotted it in the Windows Phone Wallet app.
With the latest Windows Phone 8.1 it’s apparently possible to import and manage pkpass files. It’s going to be interesting how long Apple will allow Microsoft to do this ;)

Finally had time to check out Windows Phone’s voice assistant Cortana (unfortunately not live ;)) and I have to say it’s not bad. Person-based reminders are a really cool idea and would help me quite a lot in my daily struggle to tell people stuff! Unfortunately I would also need them when talking in person ;)
Looks like it’s a real competitor for Siri and Google Now. Again, now it’s BlackBerry’s turn to update their voice assistant to become a more advanced tool – maybe similar to the app already available for BB10 SayIt.
