WP7 Mango To Support SmartDJ, Disabling Camera Shutter Sound
If you’ve been following the news recently you’ve probably noticed that there’s no shortage of Windows Phone 7 Mango feature leaks — in case you missed all those, there are plenty featured here, here, here and here — and they don’t seem to stop, not that we want them to!
Windows Phone Dev Podcast has posted two additional pictures for two separate allegedly upcoming Mango features. In the first picture you can see that the user will be able to turn off the Camera Shutter sound — which is something Google, Apple and RIM don’t allow — and for once we might disagree. Having a shutter sound always active and always sounding off is not a flaw of other platforms but rather a privacy measure taken; muting the sound allows for unnoticed picture snapping some might find offending.
On the other screenshot you can see a feature that will hopefully be added for which many have been praying for. Yes, it’s SmartDJ support for all you Zune-holics and audiophiles. It is the ultimate music discovery tool which creates playlists from your own collection or Zune Marketplace based on similarities with the criteria of your choice. How does Windows Phone 7 Mango sound so far?
