Fight to the death with Enterchained, this week's Windows 8 myAppFree deal

6

This week's Windows 8 myAppFree deal is an interesting combat game where you take on the role of gladiator fighting for your life in the arena. The twist is that you are chained to a partner and have to work together to battle your way to victory.

The Windows 8 version normally runs $2.99 and there is also a Windows Phone version that typically runs $.99. Neither version has a trial and if you've been sitting on the fence about picking up Enterchained, now is your chance to save a few bucks. Over the next twenty-four hours, you can pick up Enterchained, through the myAppFree campaign, free and being a universal title when you pick up the Windows 8 version you can grab the Windows Phone version free as well.

Following yesterday's report, Comcast has pulled out of talks to merge with rival Time Warner Cable, announcing today the company has terminated all agreements. The deal is off.

Comcast originally announced the deal to merge with TWC back in 2014, which was valued at $45.2 billion in stock. The merge was met with criticism from not only the general public but government officials (namely the FCC) too. Today, the merge finally caved in, with Comcast CEO Brian Roberts confirming in a statement that the deal is off and the company is moving on.

Word Lord – a simple but fun Windows Phone word game

8

No argument here. There is a vast selection of word games available in the Windows Phone Store and many of them are entertaining, enjoyable and addictive titles. Word Lord is a fairly new word game offering that hopes to join the ranks of the must have Windows Phone games.

The game is basically a hidden word game that has two gaming modes and three boosters to help you along the way. Graphics are minimal and in playing Word Lord for a short time, it comes across as a fun word game to pass the time with. Word Lord is available for low memory Windows Phones.

With Build coming next week there was never any chance we'd hear about new products here, but in passing he did at least give a massive tease that "new products and services" will be discussed in San Francisco.

Windows Phone users can now upload videos to Instagram with this new app (Update)

310

Free code for the first 200 posted below!

Although 6tag is the de facto Instagram app for those using Windows Phone due to its advanced and unique features, one thing it cannot do is upload pre-recorded video. Instead, users need to open the app and record directly. This limitation is problematic if you recorded a video earlier and wanted to add it to Instagram at a later date, or perhaps did not have free internet connectivity for the upload.

Today, we are excited to announce a new third-party app dedicated to this single task. It is appropriately called 'Video Upload to Instagram' and Venetasoft makes it. If that name sounds familiar, it is because they also publish the excellent Band Sensor Monitor, Find My Band, and the excellent Movie Maker 8.1.
