Copyright infringement claim against 6discover signals the end as Snapchat wins

86

Snapchat has been on a tear lately against Windows Phone. Besides deciding against making an official app for their messaging service, the company has been very active in getting third party apps removed.

In fairness, Snapchat has two reasons for the removal of third party apps: copyright violations and security concerns. However, the latest app from Rudy Huyn, called 6discover, bypasses the first complaint as it does not use login information, but it still steps on the toes of Snapchat's legal department.

Threes! makes its Windows Phone debut for the low, low price of free

34

Wildly popular iOS and Android puzzle game "Threes!" has made its way to Windows Phone today after making its Xbox debut late in 2014. Best of all? It's free.

If you're unfamiliar with Threes, the object of the game is pretty simple. Players are tasked with sliding tiles to combine matching numbers while trying to get the highest score you can before the board is full. If it sounds fairly straightforward, that's because it is—and that simplicity is what makes the game so attractive.

Hitman GO for Xbox on Windows and Windows Phone is now available

52

Fans of the Hitman series will rejoice at the latest release, Hitman GO, now available for a universal purchase for Windows Phone and Windows 8.1.

The turn-based strategy game was released by Square Enix in April 2014 for iOS and later in June for Android. Coming nearly one-year later, those on Microsoft's platforms can enjoy the game on the small or big screen.

Hitman GO veers from the traditional gameplay of the Hitman series and is more of a puzzle game than an action adventure title.

Back in November, Microsoft Mobile released Movie Creator exclusively for Lumia Windows Phones and the Surface. Since that time, we have not seen too much in the way of updates or new features, but that changes today.

New system sounds in Windows 10 for desktop brings a modern aural experience

42

It should come of little surprise that besides a new OS, design language, icons and imagery that Windows 10 also brings some new sounds. We are specifically referring to the alerts, buzzes, and notifications that occur when you a new email arrives, an error happens, or whatever.

The site WP7Forum.ru has posted eight new sounds discovered in one of the Technical Preview builds for Windows 10. As far as we know, these are not user-ready yet, and it is not clear if the sounds are hidden, or they are just using an unreleased preview build of the OS.
