Chase Bank plans to remove its Chase Mobile app from the Windows Phone Store on January 26, according to a number of reports sent to us today by Windows Central readers.

The first version of the Chase Mobile app launched for Windows Phone devices in September 2012 and allows Chase Bank customers to monitor their accounts, pay bills and more. The app was later updated to run on Windows Phone 8.1 devices. The app was last updated in August 2014.

Update: Microsoft clarified in a statement to The Guardian that none of Mojang's servers were compromised, meaning that the leaked passwords and usernames were the result of an unrelated hack.

"We can confirm that no Mojang.net service was compromised and that normal industry procedures for dealing with situations like this were put in place to reset passwords for the small number of affected accounts."

"When we discover lists of gamertags, usernames and passwords posted online, we take immediate action to protect our customers by reviewing for valid credentials and resetting account access when necessary."

Microsoft's statements will no doubt reassure users concerned about the safety of their accounts.

With just over one day before Microsoft unveils the next chapter in its Windows 10 story, a small tidbit has already leaked from hyper indexing search engines.

Typing 'Lumia 532' into Bing or Google yields Microsoft's own product details page for the recently announced Lumia. However, the mini description, which usually pulls data from the source page, reveals this interesting line: "Windows 10 ready, the Lumia 532 smartphone is capable of running mobile games with its Snapdragon processor. Skype, OneDrive, Office and more."

Recently we passed on some of our own thoughts on how it's been living with the Microsoft Band, and a couple of things we'd like to see happen with a successor. It's a great device, for sure, but by no means perfect, and we've all got our own opinions on what we'd do differently for the next one. So, now, we're turning it over to you. What do you want to see most from the next Microsoft Band?

Every once in a while even we miss an app that has crossed the iPhone barrier to Windows Phone. Back in mid-December, Cycloramic evidently arrived for Windows Phone 8.1 devices, although it was just brought to our attention last night.

Cycloramic (Cycloramic.com) started back in 2012 as a panoramic app for the iPhone 5. Pano apps are a dime a dozen these days, but Cycloramic was the one that danced. It worked by ingeniously placing the iPhone 5 standing up, and it would vibrate the phone to spin around slowly, snapping pictures along the way.

The holiday season is over which also means, playtime is over! As of last week many of us are back to school, while a lot of us have long been back at work. This also means that developers are back to work and the video games will once again start to roll out. This week we have two remastered games heading to the Xbox One.

First up we have the HD remastered remake of Resident Evil to celebrate its 20th anniversary. Then, we have Saints Row IV: Re-elected, which will be the first time the franchise lands on next-generation systems.

Late last night, Spotify hit version 5.0 for Windows Phone with an all new design. Although some people have mixed opinions on certain UI aspects, one thing for certain is that Spotify is a very popular music service for mobile.

The Xbox One lets users snap apps so that music can continue to play while you do others things on the gaming and entertainment console. Seeing as we now have Pandora for Xbox One in addition to Xbox Music, Spotify would seem like an ideal candidate.

With Microsoft's recent firmware update for the Surface Pro 3, among the new bits and pieces was a new Marvell Wifi driver that lets you switch between 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands on the fly. For those of us using a dual-band router, the updated driver should help resolve any related issues.

Switching bands is easy, so long as you know where to look. Here's how to do it.
