Quick tip: Turn off notifications for the IMSA app for Windows Phone

6

The official IMSA app for Windows Phone and Windows 8.1 recently joined us, and the good news is that it's largely a great app. The experience within is everything a fan of sports car racing could want, save for one small bug. I call it a bug because I have to hope that's what it is. While the most recent race was happening this past weekend, every 60 seconds or so the app would push out a notifcation.

Beer lovers rejoice as Untappd gets major makeover in 2.0 for Windows Phone

68

If you like to drink beer (and who doesn't) then you want to grab Untappd 2.0, now live in the Windows Phone Store. The free Untappd service lets users look up beers and check-in, record ratings, upload photos, notes and sharing the information socially. Users can even earn badges or follow people for recommendations on beer.

The previous app for Windows Phone was infamously a Phone Gap app, meaning it was not actually native, but rather a port with limited functionality. This limitation seems to change with 2.0, which looks to be a native app. Even better, the Untappd developers have included a rather lengthy changelog. Let's take a look!

Cortana now showing weather info more frequently on the Live Tile

72

Since one year ago, Cortana has been displaying weather information on the Live Tile, including current conditions in number form and weather animations. However, back then Cortana would mostly run this feature only in the early morning, as noted in our forums in 2014.

Nevertheless, starting over the weekend, Microsoft evidently has increased the frequency of this feature past the early morning. In fact, it now appears to be the default status tile for Cortana if you have the weather interest enabled.

Monster Castle for Windows Phone- defending against the hero invasion

15

Monster Castle is a Windows Phone where you play the role of the monster, defending your castle from an invasion of heroes and taking the fight to the hero's castles. The game is part tower defense, part city builder and part social game. You play the role of an exiled chief of monsters who has to rebuild an abandoned castle, raise an army of orcs, goblins and other ghastly creatures, defend the homestead and seek out heroes throughout the country.

Available for low-memory devices, Monster Castle does require a data connection to play. After playing this anti-hero Windows Phone game for the past few days, Monster Castle comes across as a fun time waster of a game well worth trying.
