Windows Phone Apps

Although Windows Phone is gaining official apps left and right, Tinder isn't one of them. A few months ago, developer extraordinaire Rudy Huyn released an app called 6tindr, which brought all the features over from the famous partner finding service. The app caught the attention of Tinder, who was not pleased and promptly asked for the removal of the app. The good news to the story was that Tinder approached Huyn about turning his app into the official one. But that was in January and six months later, there's nothing.

Rumors began circulating that one of the people in charge of Tinder was blocking the development of the Windows Phone app, and not giving their approval for the project to go forward. Whatever the intention, Huyn became frustrated as Windows Phone users grew impatient.

A few days ago, Vivino Wine Scanner made a triumphant return to Windows Phone. Although an app for Vivino had come out a few years ago, it hadn't been updated in a long time, and the company wanted to start from the ground up. The new app is designed for Windows Phone 8 and beyond, bringing with it a highly polished UI and enhanced user experience.

If you're not familiar with Vivino, they're the largest service for finding and logging your wine collection, including ratings. Their cool scanner device though is the real attraction, as all you have to do is scan a bottle's label and let the service fetch all the necessary data through its image-recognition technology. It makes logging your wine a whole lot of fun.

With the recent launch, Mobile Nations writer John Callaham had an opportunity to ask Vivino CEO Heini Zachariassen a few questions about their service and the new app.

Starting tomorrow night on ABC in the US, a new show looks to bring live voting to the masses via their connected devices. The show Rising Star, which premieres Sunday, June 22 at 9PM ET, is similar to American Idol, but it lets the audience be the judge through a first-time ever technique of live voting. The process works through various apps on iOS, Android and yes, Windows Phone.

During the show, when a performer takes the stage, a 90-foot wide interactive wall separates them from the audience that way you only hear their voice. Users then decide whether they love or hate a performance by swiping to the right (for yes) or left (for no) on their smartphone or tablet. As a bonus? Your face may appear on that interactive wall during the broadcast.

Lomogram is a popular Windows Phone photography app that featured over forty creative filters and other editing effects to give your Windows Phone photos a little zip. The app was recently updated with a few design changes that included a name change to Metamorphosa. Changes that weren't exactly well received.

While we aren't certain as to the particulars, there seems to have been a parting of the ways between the developers and publisher of Lomogram with some suggestion that the original app was stolen. The end result of all this controversy is the re-release of Lomogram, as Lomogram+, in its pre-Metamorphosa form.

Expedia.com is one of the most popular sites for planning vacations and trips. The site offers deals on hotels and flights for cheap, and it's one of those big, name brand services that many people know about.

The good news is that Windows Phone 8 users now have an official Expedia.com app. The bad news is it's just a mobile web wrapper, meaning this app simply pulls down the mobile web version of Expedia.com. Except you get more on the website, including cars and packages, which the web app obfuscates.
