Foundbite updated with push notifications, commenting, and much more in latest update

24

What are big fans of? Apps that are exclusive to Windows Phone. The kind of apps that are born and raised just on Windows Phone before making the jump to other platforms. Apps like SongArc, Youmigo, and Sleeve are some examples of those apps that are (for now) exclusive on Windows Phone. Foundbite is also one of those apps and it just picked up a great update. Let’s check it out.

Prepare to play Titanfall in style with limited edition Xbox One controller [Updated]

66

For gamers who love buying gadgets and technology, console launches represent a fun time to stock up on not only a new system but also a host of accessories for that system. If you care about local multiplayer, you’re definitely going to need an extra controller or three. Problem is: the controllers available at launch are always the same color. By the time cool colors come along, many of us already own all the controllers we need.

Luckily Xbox One owners don’t have to wait too terribly long for a different controller style to arrive. When Respawn and Electronic Arts' highly anticipated Titanfall launches on March 11 in North America and March 13 in Europe, a special limited edition controller will pop up right along with it. It certainly looks different from the standard black model! Update: Amazon preorder link after the break!

Lomogram passes 4.5 million downloads in Windows Phone Store, big congrats to developer DevRain Solutions

34

As a mobile platform Windows Phone sits in third place. It’s a distant third however when you compare it to both iOS and Android. Depending on who you ask, we’re at somewhere like 4% marketshare globally. That’s still pretty small, but also presents a huge return for developers who make killer apps. Like the guys at DevRain Solutions who have just reached a killer milestone in the Windows Phone Store – 6 million downloads.

Temple Run 2 Review: Endless adventures on Windows Phone

121

Indie and mobile games go through various genres of the moment over time, sort of like how console and big-budget PC games have been stuck on First-Person Shooters for the last ten years or so. For the longest time, it seemed like every new small-scale release that came along was a tower defense game. Hardly anybody complained, due to the inherent joy of defending towers.

The new genre of the moment on mobile is definitely the endless running game. A slew of endless runners have recently flooded Windows Phone 8, including such high profile releases as Subway Surfers and Despicable Me: Minion Rush. Only one endless runner with 3D graphics sports Xbox Live features, though: Temple Run 2 from Imangi Studios (makers of Harbor Master). Does the only non-spin-off sequel to Temple Run stand tall above its competitors? Read on to find out.

Rudy Huyn releases 6tindr, an unofficial Tinder app for Windows Phone

191

Tinder is a very popular iOS app that essentially matches people. It’s primarily used for finding a date or hookup. What’s unique about Tinder versus other dating sites and services? Think of Tinder as a modern Hot or Not site, but one built for the very mobile and app centric world we live in. 

​While there's no official app for Windows Phone, we previously looked at Rudy Huyn, best known around these parts for his work putting out high quality apps in the Windows Phone Store, teasing a client in development. Huyn has now released said unofficial client. Say hello to 6tindr.

Unofficial Nest app for Windows Phone looks to bring control over your thermostats, now free

38

Nest (www.nest.com) makes the popular ‘connected’ smart-thermostat that allows users to control the weather inside their homes remotely. It’s quickly becoming the poster child for the wired future, where all our appliances ‘talk’ to our phones. Recently, Google acquired the connected technologies company for $3.2 billion. Although much has been made of the deal, what concerns Windows Phone users most is whether or not they will ever see an official app.

In the past, we’ve seen unofficial apps come to Windows Phone, only to have them yanked through a Cease and Desist (C&D) letter from the Nest lawyers. This has made owning and developing these apps a precarious venture, though we’re happy to see another creator take the plunge.

But this situation is a bit different and more importantly, through a special partnership with Windows Phone Central, the app is free for 24-hours.
