Bing Finance soon to change name to 'Money' for Windows Phone with MSN branding

142

Back in Berlin a few weeks ago, Microsoft made clear their current suite of Bing apps, including Weather, News, Finance, Travel and Health + Fitness, would be adopting MSN as the brand. Microsoft has already phased out Bing from the apps in previous updates back in April. The change is seen to separate Bing search from Microsoft's news and information offerings, which evidently fit better under a retooled MSN homepage.

This morning, we are getting reports from users that the Finance app is displaying an in-app message revealing that the name Bing Finance will be no more in the "coming days". (We have been able to reproduce the message ourselves and you can see the screenshot in the lead photo) Instead, the app will be titled MSN Money, although, like the current Bing apps, the app name itself is only going to be 'Money' on the phone (Paul Thurrott reported as much a few weeks ago on WinSupersite).

Head to head: iPhone 6 Plus vs Lumia 930 video performance

260

If you ask an Apple store employee for the difference between an iPhone 6 Plus and an iPhone 6, you can expect to hear that the 6 Plus has a bigger screen, but there's one more thing they'll most likely mention. The iPhone 6 Plus a better camera. That's because Apple has finally included Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) in an iPhone. Lumia cameras had this feature for a while now.

I was curious how Apple's video performance compares with the latest cameras found on the Lumia 930, Lumia Icon, and Lumia 1520. So, I went to the park and shot some videos. Watch the split screen comparison.

Cloud Raiders sails onto Windows 8, fully cross-compatible with Windows Phone

65

Clash of Clans-style games are all the rage on mobile these days. In the last couple of weeks we've seen Age of Empires: Castle Siege and Star Wars: Commander arrive on both Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 and RT. Both games have the obvious appeal of their franchises behind them, but for my money Cloud Raiders from Game Insight has long been the Windows Phone Clash-like to beat.

One of Cloud Raiders' big draws is its truly cross-platform cloud save and multiplayer support. You can start playing on Windows Phone and pick up the same game on Android, iOS, or Facebook. Only one platform has been missing from that equation: Windows 8. Until now, that is. Cloud Raiders has finally arrived on Windows 8 and RT, and is fully compatible with the Windows Phone and other versions of the game. Read on to learn why you'll want to play Cloud Raiders on your tablet or PC.
