Microsoft's 3D Touch 'Flyout Tile' navigation for Windows Phone leaked in a new document

168

Nearly one year ago, Microsoft began field testing their new 3D Touch navigation system, which at the time was destined for the flagship Nokia phone codenamed Goldfinger (and later 'McLaren'). The phone itself was scrapped at the last minute due to numerous factors and sullying Microsoft's flagship story for the fall of 2014.

In the past, Windows Central has given extensive details about the so-called 'Flyout Tiles' for a new Mixview feature. The system worked by hovering your finger over a Live Tile, which would then explode into smaller tiles. The design was reused from the Zune days where images related to an artist would do the same.

Popular Indian music streaming service Gaana continues updating their Windows Phone app

76

If you have never heard of the Gaana.com, it only means you are not in India. The service is one of three in that country, letting people worldwide stream free and licensed music in 21 different languages (thank you, Wikipedia). It competes with Saavn and Hungama with Saavn grabbing most of Bollywood's music catalog lately. Gaana now focuses on a lot of regional stuff, as a result.

Anyway, the developers behind the Windows Phone app have been going on a tear this last week, overhauling the app to bring it more in line with iOS and Android. This after nearly a year without an update, so yeah, a big deal.

We're celebrating the Xbox launch of Oddworld: New n' Tasty with an exclusive interview!

270

Oddworld: New n' Tasty - the remake of the legendary PS1 title Abe's Oddysee is available now on the Xbox One store.

For those who don't know, Abe's Oddysee was a unique puzzle platformer from Oddworld Inc, and saw players guide the hapless mudokon Abe through a massive labyrinth of industrial plants, ancient temples and deadly wilderness. The original was crammed with secrets, and combat centred around evasion or luring enemies into environmental hazards.

Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee is one of my all-time favourite games, and it's with some excitement that I present my Q&A session with Bennie Terry, Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty Executive Producer for Xbox One.

Unfortunately several performance issues are present that holds this game back considerably. At least on the Windows Phone side of the aisle.
