We just covered the Lumia 630 announcement in India, but Nokia are also set to launch the Windows Phone in the Philippines. The company will be holding an event in the region on May 13. An affordable smartphone with quad-core processing, the latest version of Microsoft's mobile operating system and more certainly makes the Lumia 630 package more appealing to consumers in targeted markets.

Wearables and the Internet of Things is the future of technology and one Microsoft is intent on being a big part of. Today we’re looking at a patent granted to Microsoft for an "electronic band."
Only a handful of apps have been in the Windows Phone Store for years. The number of those apps that continue to get consistent updates is even smaller. Fhotoroom is one of those apps that has been around for a very long time, but still gets regular updates that fixes bugs and add features. We first reviewed Fhotoroom over two and a half years ago in January 2012. Today we’re not talking about an app update for Fhotoroom, instead we’re giving them a little congratulations for hitting some impressive milestones with Windows Phone and Windows 8.
We’ve seen this a lot here at Windows Phone Central - passionate debates in comments whenever a post mentions a game that can’t run on Windows Phone devices with 512MB RAM. We also know that Nokia Lumia 520 with that low amount of RAM became the sleeper hit for Nokia last year, and has been the best-selling Windows Phone device across the board.
I spotted this thread on Windows Phone Central forums about the same, and wondered why these devices get all the rants despite their irrefutable success.
Shelter is a popular zombie game that has elements of a collectible card game as well as a castle defense game. In the game, you need to work your way through the city, battling zombies, in an effort to be reunited with the woman you love. As you go along, your card deck grows and the challenges increase.
Shelter is not your typical zombie game, and the combat is more strategy oriented than action packed. You are defending against the zombie onslaught through a card game and not running around shooting them. Unlike most card games though, the game offers deep and challenging gameplay that gets very addictive.

If you looked at Nokia's diminutive Treasure Tag WS-2 and said "I like the idea, but that's too much of a thing", then the Treasure Tag Mini WS-10 might just be the Bluetooth beacon for you. It popped up recently with nary an announcement from Nokia, and it's a little 'un. Measuring in at the same 30mm x 30mm face, the Treasure Tag Mini is nearly half the as thin (5.8 mm vs. the full size's 10mm) and less than half as heavy (6.2g vs. 13g). It's a darned light and little tag, but with that save bulk you lose some features.

Today we're getting a lot comments that Cortana sounds different. Does she?
Microsoft is keeping their promise of bi-weekly updates for Xbox Music on Windows Phone. The app was last updated two weeks ago and is now again picking up an update. That last update saw stability fixes, completed Cortana integration, UI polish and more. Let’s head into the Windows Phone Store and see what’s new with this version of Xbox Music.
We’ve already seen some of the cool things that Cortana can do, and how it is more than just a personal assistant. But the developers over at Onion have leveraged Cortana’s ability to integrate with third-party apps to take it to a completely different level.

Windows Phone 8.1 removed the ability to natively share a status update to multiple networks at once through the Me tile. We’ve seen apps like UniShare and MultiShare rise up to address the missing functionality. One Love is an app that’s been out for quite some time that shares to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn like those other apps, but it does a little bit more too. Let’s check it out.
We still don’t have an exact date for when regular consumers will begin to receive Windows Phone 8.1 through their OTA update. Folks will be able to get it on devices like the Lumia 630 and Lumia 930 this month. We do know that companies like Nokia, now Microsoft, have said that devices will see the update rollout throughout the summer. That said, Microsoft has just shared the lifecycle date for Windows Phone 8.1.
