Sneak Peek: Official Windows Phone Central app v4

119

It's been a little while now since we last updated our official app for Windows Phone, but fear not as version 4.0 was submitted to the store earlier this week and is right now undergoing certification. Of course we know that just waiting is never as fun as seeing the changes for yourself so we've put together a quick video to demonstrate the headline features this time around.

So, keep reading past that break to see voice commands, new live tile options and Unification support in all their glory. We expect the app to be published next week and will of course post an article as soon as that happens reminding you to grab the update.

Try out the Nokia Lumia on-screen clock on any Windows Phone

63

We recently looked at Nokia’s double tap to awake and on-screen clock, features that are coming to the Lumia 920 (PR2.0). But what if you happen to be using a Windows Phone from HTC, Samsung or other Lumia phones? An app is available on the Windows Phone Store that emulates the on-screen clock and while it's not the full solution, it's a cool effect to see how the clock looks.

Expansys UK has provided us with a red Nokia Lumia 820 Windows Phone, a wireless charging pillow, and a set of Bluetooth Monster headphones to give away to one lucky reader in the United Kingdom.

All our United Kingdom readers needed to do to enter is toss out a recommendation for a local retailer, business, bank or other local app. We received hundreds of suggestions with banking apps seeming to the popular request (Barclays, Lloyds, Ulster, etc.).

Lots of Angry Birds updates on Windows Phone and Windows 8 bring new levels and fixes

31

Today’s a big day for Windows 8 games, what with Temple: Run Brave finally releasing (not to mention Dr. Pickaxe’s indie pinball action). On top of that, it also happens to be a great day for Angry Birds on Windows 8 AND Windows Phone. Why? First of all, I heard some pigs got knocked over and crushed by blocks. You know how Angry Birds love that.

More to the point: on Windows Phone 8, both Angry Birds Classic (still free till next Tuesday!) and Angry Birds Star Wars just got updated. On Windows 8 and Windows Phone 7, Angry Birds Star Wars got its long-delayed update too. That’s four Angry Birds games caught up!

Head past the break to find out what’s been fixed or added in each game.

The app enables consumers to mix footage captured on a Windows Phone with film taken by other people at the same event. The service synchronises and edits each clip to create a single movie with all angles cut together. Raw footage is also available too, opening up custom remixes. It's quite the app.

Temple Run: Brave arrives on Windows 8 and RT after a seemingly endless run

37

Way back in March, Microsoft announced a big batch of Windows 8 games that would be launching the following weekend. These mostly included Xbox-enabled games, but they mixed some indies in there too. And all of those games did launch that weekend but one: Temple Run: Brave from Disney and Imangi.

We never learned what caused the holdup, but the important thing is Temple Run: Brave has launched for Windows 8 and RT at last! In our previous article I said it might not have Xbox Live features, and unfortunately that has proven to be the case. At least Windows tablet and PC users can now enjoy an installment of the popular Temple Run series… No word on a Windows Phone port of this one, unfortunately.

Head past the break for a hands-on video and our full impressions!
