Developer Camp Competition winner LiquidLab bumped to version 2.0 on Windows Phone Store

12

LiquidLab, a title that won the Developer Camp Competition in Macedonia earlier this year, is now available on the Windows Phone Store at version 2.0. It's an indie Windows Phone project that makes use of a simple concept - the aim of the puzzle game is to fill a beaker of liquid to reach the designated level. Not too exciting? In LiquidLab there are no measurements on the glass to guide the player, and one has to use other bottles and tubes to measure the volume. Sounds slightly challenging now, right?

New alleged Nokia document hints at post Windows Phone 7.8 update and more

74

We’ve known for quite some time that despite what a lot of the doom-and-gloomers out the have said, Windows Phone 7 is far from dead. Between Windows Phone 7.8 coming out and Nokia who keeps churning out all sorts of neat additions to the OS, people with 7.x phones still have reason to be satisfied.

A new leaked slide from a 25-page Nokia PowerPoint deck may make things even better, if we’re not reading too much into it. (This will be the second Nokia PowerPoint presentation to have leaked in recent days.) The slide, attained by WPArea.de, shows a timeline with Windows Phone 7.x being overlapped by Windows Phone 8. There we see the familiar Mango --> Tango --> Windows Phone 7.8 progression but there is another box after 7.8 that simply states “Windows Phone 7.x”...

Amazon Wireless drops AT&T Lumia 920 price to $49 on contract. Colors still backordered.

74

If you're looking to pick up the AT&T Nokia Lumia 920, Amazon Wireless just became a little more attractive. The online retailer, who is normally quite competitive in pricing, began selling the device just last week for $99. While that's a nice price-match for AT&T, there was little incentive to order from Amazon over the carrier.

Windows Phone Hacker working on Notification Center app

75

Windows Phone Hacker has unveiled a notification centre app for both Windows Phone 7 and Windows Phone 8 on his website. Microsoft has received countless letters, threats and (we're certain) love notes from consumers pleading for a single location for all toast notifications to be stored for later viewing.

It has always been an issue when a Windows Phone alerts the user with a notification, only for it to disappear without the ability to see which app requires attention (this is where Live Tiles arguably come in, but that's besides the point). We're aware of the talks that Microsoft intends to implement functionality to address the issue, but Windows Phone Hacker has beaten the company to it with a new project.

Pixel Heritage: Windows Phone App Review

Pixel Heritage: Windows Phone App Review

Windows Phone cameras have progressed rather nicely with the Lumia 920 and HTC 8X's cameras being really strong performers. But if you're in the mood for days of old, Pixel Heritage will give your current Windows Phone camera a retro feel.

Pixel Heritage is a collection of nine "old school" Nokia phones. From the 2004 6610i to the 2006 Nokia N95, you can snap a picture and give it that hazy, dusty, slightly out of focus look as if it was taken with these older cameras.

Service Alert - Windows Phone Store glitch asking for app re-purchases

87

Currently there seems to be a bug in the Windows Phone Store that causes previously purchased apps to not appear so on your account. As a result, if you try to re-download an app that you bought in the past, the Store will try to re-charge you for it. We were able to verify this on various phones of ours, someone with a different Microsoft account and it's even popping up in comments.

Conserve Windows Phone battery life by managing background apps

101

We heard and experienced for ourselves some rather crummy battery life with the Nokia Lumia 920 Windows Phone. It's a mixed bag of results with some report fantastic battery performance while others are struggling to make it through half a day.

While Nokia is looking into things, they've reminded us that managing the apps that are running in the background could help with battery life.  And this power saving technique isn't exclusive to the Lumia Windows Phones.  If you want to conserve power on your HTC 8X or Samsung Focus 2, shut down some of the apps you don't need that are still running in the background.

Hey DJ! updated with voice commands for Windows Phone 8

28

A few weeks ago we demonstrated the updated version of Hey Dj!a voice-controlled app for Windows Phone that handles your music.

The original version of the app won accolades from us for being creative and filling in a gap in the OS, namely voice control of your music library.  The app worked by simply launching it, pressing a virtual button and telling it what you wanted to hear. You could say things like the artist, song title, album or even a playlist...
