No, Nokia did not announce that Instagram is coming to Windows Phone

166

Generally speaking, if you don’t see Windows Phone Central report on some magical sounding rumor, it’s because we either know it to be false or don’t have faith in the story—not because we’re behind. And while we’re not perfect either, the recent report of Nokia Executive VP Chris Weber supposedly telling the Bangkok Post that Instagram was coming to Windows Phone, seemed highly unlikely.

17

Yatzy Online is a turn based, online Windows Phone 8 game based on the classic dice game Yahtzee. Yatzy Online is also available over on Android and IOS which should give you a healthy player pool to compete against.

Microsoft also dropping the price of Surface RT bundles on August 30th

Sleeve Music is out for music lovers: Exclusive to Windows Phone, it’s a beautiful way to discover music

36

Back in early May we told you guys to join a beta for an app called Sleeve Music.

On them you’d find things like biographies, info about the album in your hand, and much more. These days we don’t really have an equivalent. Sure iTunes offers a “digital booklet” with some albums, but you’re probably not on iTunes and Sleeve Music for Windows Phone is so much more than that. Let’s check it out.
