Transport Empire: Windows Phone and Windows 8 review

30

Every game publisher has its strengths, and many of them have their niches – particular things they focus on as well. European publisher Game Insight practically owns the city building genre on Windows Phone, having released numerous entries like 2020 My Country, The Tribez, and Big Business Deluxe. Of course they all vary in theme, and sometimes quality.

Lucky for fans of the genre, Game Insight has just released one of its best city building games on Windows Phone and Windows 8: Transport Empire. In Transport Empire, you'll manage a network of trains, ships, and airships (but mostly trains) as they travel across a fictionalized Europe to deliver goods and reap profits. If you like trains, this free to play title is worth a look.

Windows 10 grabs Movies & TV area in the Windows Store as Xbox Video begins to fade

150

Microsoft is aggressively unifying services and platforms in 2015, and one of those appears to be Xbox Video, which is being folded into the Windows Store in Windows 10.

Users who are running the Windows 10 Preview are being notified that 'Movies & TV' now appear in the Store's navigation bar. Tapping the section though brings up an error message, as the sub-section is not yet ready for primetime. Microsoft notes, however, that this area goes live "later this month".

Microsoft may or may not have intended their first foray into health and fitness to be a hit, but the Microsoft Band always appears to be selling out. It now seems that Microsoft has been building up inventory of the wearable, seeing as yesterday it finally went back on sale online.

Now, Windows Central has confirmed that 765 Best Buy stores in the US will begin selling the Band sometime this month. The information comes via internal documents detailing the launch event, although a date is not yet set to our knowledge.

The Best Buy stores are positioning the device in their increasingly extensive smartwatch display area, with a live demo for customers to interact with before buying. All three SKUs (small, medium, and large) will be available to purchase.

Third party Windows Phone app for the Xiaomi MiBand in the works

44

Xiaomi is a pretty interesting manufacturer, in that it makes phones, software, accessories but also a ton of other items including headphones, wearables and even an air purifier. It's the wearables in focus here, though, with news surfacing of a third-party developer working on a Windows Phone companion app for the Xiaomi MiBand. The MiBand is a pretty basic fitness tracker, not close to the Microsoft Band in terms of features, but with one massive positive: its price. Officially it only supports Android and more recently, iOS, which isn't all that surprising, especially given Xiaomi's focus as an Android phone maker.
