162

The next Xbox is due to come out later this year, but we still don’t know a whole lot about ‘Durango’.

Modern Combat 4 is live and ready for duty on Xbox Windows Phone 8

138

Earlier this week, Windows Phone Central broke the news that Gameloft’s Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour would be arriving on Windows Phone 8 today.  The wait has been hard, but now Modern Combat 4 is finally here! Not only is it the first First-Person Shooter in the Xbox Windows Phone lineup, but it’s the next best thing to having Call of Duty on your phone.

Modern Combat 4 packs both a full single-player campaign and a robust online multiplayer mode for up to 12 players. Not surprisingly, that means you’ll need a Windows Phone 8 device with 1 GB of RAM and plenty of storage space in order to play it. Head past the break for more details and the all-essential Windows Phone Store link!

My short experience with a bricked Lumia 920 and Nokia Care Support

123

There's nothing worse than your Windows Phone taking some physical damage as the appearance of a smartphone is fairly important, especially when it's a Lumia 920 or other Windows Phone. There's really only one instance when an issue can prove more irritating and that's when the software (or a combination of it and hardware) royally breaks and thus bricking the device. How useful is a bricked Windows Phone? Well, it's good paperweight, I suppose. This is what happened to my poor white Lumia 920. Let me tell you a short story of what happened and how quickly the issue was resolved by Nokia.

Most US smartphone owners don’t know about Windows Phone (but it's still better off than BlackBerry 10)

73

With smartphone survey info, it’s always a tough call between “the glass is half empty or full” analyses. Such is the case with a new study of 1,500 US smartphone owners by MKM Partners on brand awareness.  The survey asked about what consumers know about current smartphone trends and their future buying plans.

Microsoft’s Windows Phone did not do terrible but it’s still not ideal either. For instance, out of the 1,500 respondents, a full 60% did not even know that Windows Phone 8 had launched. By comparison, 83% did not know about BlackBerry 10 hitting Canada and Europe.

But in fairness to BlackBerry, their US launch coincided with the survey, which took place over the last three weeks, so perhaps that knowledge should not be expected by average, non-techy folks. Compare that to Windows Phone 8, which was available since last November and clearly Microsoft should have the upper hand for advertising and brand awareness. On the other hand, these numbers reveal that it is BlackBerry whom have the most catching up to do.

Keep on top of Windows Phone Store highlights with AppSpotlights

8

AppSpotlights is an interesting app for Windows Phone. Why, you ask?

There are a number of features that cater for the needs of both consumers and developers, which makes the app even more useful.

Instagraph uploads on hold but server fix is coming soon

204

With the launch yesterday of Instagraph, the unofficial Instagram app for Windows Phone, some issues were to be expected—after all, this isn’t just a simple Instagram posting app. Indeed, there are two big complaints right now including delays in posting images and having the wrong image posted instead of the user's own.

Despite some ramblings on the internet it’s not other people’s images that are being accidentally posted by Instagraph, but a demo one, which while annoying is not as sensational as some have made it. The problem was server-side, has been patched and will be back online in the next 12-24 hours (maybe sooner).

Vampire Rush Review: High stakes tower defense action on Windows Phone

10

Tower defense is one of my favorite genres because of its versatility. There are so many variations between TD games, from the wholesome simplicity geoDefense to the undying awesomeness of Plants vs. Zombies. Sometimes developers even combine tower defense with action games, allowing players to run around the field attacking enemies in addition to the strategic planting of towers. Zombie Attack 2 did just that a couple of years ago, although somehow the game still ended up a big, stinking pile of boring.

Vampire Rush, a former Nokia exclusive Xbox game for Windows Phone comes from Chillingo and Lithuanian developer A-Steroids. While it doesn’t quite achieve its full potential, Vampire Rush does manage to provide the right blend of strategy and excitement that Zombie Attack 2 so woefully lacked. Read on for our full review!

How to: Using BlueStacks to upload photos to Instagram

52

Whether you like it or not, Instagram is here to stay as a social network. Whatever plans Facebook has in the future are irrelevant, today it’s a huge platform for a lot of users. Its presence (or absence) makes or breaks potential smartphone purchases by the active 90 million users. Windows Phone still doesn’t have an official app, but Instagraph is a good workaround for right now. From the forums, here’s another slightly more involved way to get pictures up to Instagram without using an iPhone or Android device.
