It's here: Itsdagram Free now available for Windows Phone 8

170

Following up on our earlier post, we told you that the free, ad-supported version of Itsdagram would go live today and sure enough, it has.

For users who don’t want to fork over $1.49 for the app (or who can’t due to lack of carrier billing in their region) you can now get the completely free and fully functional Instagram-client for Windows Phone 8. The app is exactly like its paid sibling but has some banner ads near the bottom—otherwise the apps are identical.

Drag Racing has plenty of upgrades to enhance your cars performance that can be purchased with your race winnings. You can race against the computer or choose an online opponent to challenge.  We've only messed with Drag Racing for about an hour and it comes across as a fun game for short bits of time as well as longer, marathon gaming sessions.

Check-in with Events for Me, an Eventbrite app for Windows Phone

6

Eventbrite (www.eventbrite.com) launched back in 2006 and quickly established itself as the go-to site for event organizers. It’s a platform that allows promoters and organizers to easily set up ticket sales, promote events, plan, and more. Potential attendees can also search for events in their area. There are official apps for other platforms, but not Windows Phone. That means an opportunity for third party developers. One that’s been filled with Events For Me.

Xbox One Reveal Day Wrap-Up: All you need to know

143

We first began reporting on the next Xbox console (codenamed Durango) earlier this year, but the new console had been rumored for quite some time now. Earlier today, Microsoft finally announced the console during the Xbox Reveal event.

The console’s final name is not Xbox Infinity as many had expected. Instead, Microsoft has named it the Xbox One. The name stems from Microsoft’s goal of this console becoming the One device you use for all of your entertainment needs. The OS is comprised of three layers: one dedicated to gaming, one based on the Windows 8 kernel, and a third layer that interfaces between the other two. It will launch sometime later this year.

You'll find everything we know about the Xbox One past the break!

Forza 5, FIFA 14, and Call of Duty: Ghosts coming to Xbox One at launch

38

The Xbox One should offer an exponentially better entertainment experience than our beloved but aging Xbox 360. The gaming possibilities are greater than ever before thanks to beefier hardware (16 times as much RAM, for instance) and the new Kinect. That said, Microsoft chose to reveal precious few games during the event.

Let’s see what titles they announced and what we can expect when the console launches later this year…

But jokes aside, did Microsoft impress you? Is the Xbox ONE what you hoped it would be and do you think it’ll succeed?
