Lazyworm Apps and Seles Games teaming up to bring Weave to Windows 8

53

Windows Phone and Windows 8 have always had passionate developers with equally motivated fans (you). Two of your favorites are teaming up. Lazyworm Apps is teaming up with Seles Games to bring the popular RSS newsreader Weave to Windows 8.

Weave has been around since the beginning of Windows Phone, becoming better with each and every update. The most significant update came out at the tail end of last year bringing with it support for Windows Phone 8. Besides getting praise from us here at Windows Phone Central, Weave has near universal acclaim in its Store ratings from all you out there. It’s a fast, fluid and beautiful application that should be at the top of your list of news readers.

Google Authentication issues causing problems with Metrotalk and other apps

108

The past few months we’ve seen official apps slowly trickle into the Windows Phone Store. And for those services (cough YouTube, cough Instagram) that don’t provide an official app, third party developers have stepped in to provide incredible applications.

Sometimes doing a job so good it’s hard to see what companies can do better (Metrotube is a great example of this). Unfortunately, most apps require workarounds to function properly and can easily be broken by a change server side to all these apps. Right now users might experience some issues with MetroTalk and GVoice because of some authentication issues.

Newegg for Windows Phone updated with PayPal support and more

25

There’s a good chance you’ve used Newegg sometime with the past ten years if you’ve built your own computer. Or at least checked the site out while doing some online shopping for computer hardware, electronics, or software. Because, once you know, you Newegg (or so they say). Anyways, the app for Windows Phone picked up a nice update two days back. Let’s check it out.

New Samsung device for US Cellular clears FCC, allegedly runs Windows Phone 8

51

We’re not a 100% certain on the specific of this one, but the Samsung SCH-R860U has cleared the FCC sporting Band 12 LTE. That band is used by US Cellular, making this phone destined for that carrier and that carrier only (sorry, Sprint fans).

The question is, does the phone run Android or Windows Phone 8? With the Galaxy S4 right around the corner and Sammy’s slightly cold support of Windows Phone 8, we’d lean on it being another Android phone. But the site Blog of Mobile, who have a pretty decent reputation for finding these filings, claims it sports Windows Phone 8.

From the Forums: The Lumia 900 and an 8-month backpacking tour across Europe

7

The Lumia 900 was a popular Windows Phone and still proves to be a thorn in the back Windows Phone 8 when we're looking at the usage margin between version 7.x and 8. The Nokia device has been taken on a backpacking tour around Europe. Windows Phone Central reader Matthew Cosentino is originally from Melbourne, Australia but has uprooted his life by quiting his job, selling his business and decided to move beyond the border. The past 8 months has seen the Windows Phone owner travel across Europe, focusing more on the Eastern side.

The iMore Podcast where CrackBerry Kevin and Dan talk about how stupid this Smartphone Madness contest is...

52

On Saturday we reluctantly linked to the Smartphone Madness online poll to see "which is the best smartphone"...a contest which many of us here find meaningless and sensational. Still, against our better wishes (and mostly because our sister site Crackberry posted it) we had to do some link love. (And If you think people aren't cheating and running scripts, making the "contest" pointless, well you'd be wrong. Still, there's no harm either.)

With that, yesterday we recorded a podcast with myself, Rene Ritchie (iMore.com) and Kevin from Michaluk from Crackberry. It was an iMore podcast for sure, but we did cover all the platforms, the silliness of online smartphone polls and some general trends in the market--it's a worthy (and short) listen, so you should check it out.

Also consider this a teaser of an upcoming Mobile Nations event...

Exclusive first look at Modern Combat 4 for Xbox Windows Phone 8

147

We can’t say whether there will be two Xbox Windows Phone releases this week just yet. But we can tell you – and show you – one very exciting game arriving for Windows Phone 8 on Wednesday. Originally announced back in October, Gameloft’s Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour will finally arrive this week! Not only will it be the first Xbox Windows Phone first-person shooter, but it promises even more advanced multiplayer features than we saw in Asphalt 7 earlier this year.

During my recent trip to the Game Developers Conference, I stopped by the San Francisco Gameloft office for a quick tour. Lennon Arcaro, Gameloft’s Account Director was kind enough to walk me through the opening moments of Modern Combat 4. See our world exclusive hands-on footage after the break!

Blondinbella apps for both Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 have been released. Should you be a fan of the popular and well-known Swedish blogger, these apps are a must have.

Endless Robot Street, a smash 'em up kinda game

11

I'm not sure if you would consider the Windows Phone game Endless Robot Street a game or a stress reliever. It's listed in the Windows Phone Store as a game but plays more along the lines of a street reliever.

With Endless Robot Street you play the role of a giant robot who goes down the street smashing everything in sight. While the game keeps track of your destruction as career stats, there's no in-game scores or any way you can lose. Still, there's an odd sort of attraction to Endless Robot Street.
