Welcome to Greed City, an exclusive Windows Phone 8 location-based game

61

Remember the location-based social interaction game Torchbear? The creators of Torchbear, Lighthouse Games Studio, are back within another location-based game – this time exclusively for Windows Phone 8. Their new title Greed City combines the property and wealth acquisition elements of Monopoly with the real-world location and GPS elements of Four Square. It’s much more game-like than Torchbear and costs nothing to download, so Windows Phone 8 users should definitely give it a look.

We've got a quick-start guide and more impressons to share, so read on!

Full render of the Nokia Lumia 928 for Verizon, now in white

161

Last morning/night/afternoon (depends on where you are, it was about 15 hours ago) we showed you all sides of the upcoming Nokia Lumia 928. It’s destined for Verizon Wireless here in the States. A few people commented about how they’d skip the device if it only came in black. This is Nokia, do you really think there would be just one color? We now have the same render from last night, but in white/silver color.

myTube is a beautiful and innovative YouTube application for Windows Phone 8

166

Look down at your Windows Phone, odds are if you want to watch some YouTube videos you have crowd favorite Metrotube installed. It’s been by far one of the best YouTube experiences on any mobile platform even though it’s a third party app. Newcomer myTube looks to challenge them and seems well equipped. It’s just as beautiful and fluid, but has some killer features that I haven’t seen on any YouTube app on any platform. Let’s see if it can dethrone the king.

Connect 4 and Risk no longer Lumia exclusives, available to all Windows Phone owners

36

It's always great when Nokia exclusives are no longer upheld and other Windows Phone owners can subsequently enjoy more available content. Today we've been alerted to both Risk and Connect 4 becoming available for not only Nokia Windows Phones, but other handsets too. Both titles are very popular, with the former picking up a number of favourable reviews.

Nokia updates Music and system apps for Windows Phone

70

Nokia has pushed out a number of updates for Windows Phone. The apps affected are Nokia Music, Access Point and Network+. Unfortunately we don't have a change log for any of the three apps, but we imagine each release contains minor improvements. It's been a while since we've looked at both Access Point and Network+, but the Nokia Music+ service has been rolling out in multiple markets.

Vodafone Australia pushing out Lumia 820 update that enables 4G

31

Good news for those on Vodafone in Australia who own a Nokia Lumia 820, as tomorrow you’ll start to receive an over-the-air update to the 1308 firmware. What’s more, this just doesn’t improve device stability and performance but it also enables the 4G radio. Huzzah!

The rollout will be like others, meaning 25% will get the update in the first 5 days, followed by another 25% the next week and 100% of users by the end of the month.

Nokia poll results show notifications as most valued feature on lock screens

55

Nokia ran a poll on its blog last week, asking consumers which of the different lock screen features they valued most. Whether it's the notifications, the background images or locking the Windows Phone with a passcode, visitors had the selection of three to choose from. The team has now published the results, which aren't entirely surprising.

Keep your photos private with these Windows Phone apps

Windows Phone Central App Roundup: Photo Lockers
Windows Phone Central App Roundup: Photo Lockers

The other day we took a look at the Windows Phone app Pic Lock Ultimate. It's an app that lets you store photos in a secure environment, away from prying eyes. Pic Lock also goes a little further with some neat security features to discourage and even photograph those trying to sneak a peak at your photos.

This week's roundup is going to focus on four alternatives to Pic Lock Ultimate. These photo lockers are amongst the higher rated apps of this nature to keep your photos in a secure area. While these picture lockers may lack the anti-intrusion features they aren't too shabby in their own right.

Deal Alert: Acer Aspire S7 1080P Ultrabook gets a $300 discount thru Microsoft

45

Back a few months ago, I posted my thoughts on the super thin, awesomely built Aspire S7 Ultrabook. My version featured an Intel i5 CPU, 128GB SSD and a magnificent 1080P touchscreen, all stuffed in a gorgeous metal body. It’s thinner and better than my MacBook Air and frankly, I love it.

Since the time of that posting, I’ve been using the Aspire S7 as my daily driver (I do 95% of my work on it) and I have to say it’s been a joy to use. In fact, Nokia’s Chris Weber and Marco Argenti both use and adore the device too (it’s like a small club thing when we see each other).

Tag team: Metrogram and Instagraph are pairing up to bring one Instagram client to rule them all

96

There are a few criticisms levied against Instagraph, the third party “work around” for Instagram on Windows Phones, including price, upload limits and feature set. That last one is a bit interesting because as of right now, users can only upload photos to Instagram but they would need another app to view their friends’ feed, comment, share photos, etc.

That’s coming to an end though as Metrogram and Instagraph are air-high-fiving to bring a single use system. We’ve actually been privy to the info for awhile (shocked?) but it wasn’t our place to announce the news. But now the developer behind Metrogram, a highly stylized Instagram viewer that we recently covered, has posted a pic teasing the pseudo-merger (see above).

Access FTP links easily on Windows Phone 8 with FTP Enabler

10

FTP Enabler is a neat little app that adds the ability to Windows Phone for the loading of ftp:// links. As it currently stands, if one opens an FTP URL from an email, loads it up in Ineternet Explorer or from another app, an error message is displayed. The user is asked to look for an app on the store to carry out this command. The only issue is there aren't any apps listed, until now.
