Popular panorama app Cycloramic jumps from iOS to Windows Phone

102

Every once in a while even we miss an app that has crossed the iPhone barrier to Windows Phone. Back in mid-December, Cycloramic evidently arrived for Windows Phone 8.1 devices, although it was just brought to our attention last night.

Cycloramic (Cycloramic.com) started back in 2012 as a panoramic app for the iPhone 5. Pano apps are a dime a dozen these days, but Cycloramic was the one that danced. It worked by ingeniously placing the iPhone 5 standing up, and it would vibrate the phone to spin around slowly, snapping pictures along the way.

The Xbox One lets users snap apps so that music can continue to play while you do others things on the gaming and entertainment console. Seeing as we now have Pandora for Xbox One in addition to Xbox Music, Spotify would seem like an ideal candidate.

World at Arms: Windows Phone and Windows 8 Achievement Guide

40

Over the weekend, we published a guide to importing Puyo Puyo Tetris for Xbox One. That guide stirred up old feelings in yours truly, as I wrote strategy guides for years before becoming a gaming journalist and critic. It turns out I had another guide in me, this time for Gameloft's World at Arms for Windows Phone and Windows 8!

But World at Arms is one of the better ones, especially now that it has Xbox Live Achievements. Our detailed guide will tell you how to get them all and dominate the online competition!

The recent Denim update for the Nokia Lumia 930 brought a substantial update for the camera — 4K video recording — which National Geographic photographer Stephen Alvarez used to capture the majestic Victoria Falls in Zambia and Zimbabwe.
