App Reinstaller updated to version 2.0, now works again with new features

67

We've covered Reinstaller before, but here's another app with similar functionality. App Reinstaller is by another Windows Phone developer, also offering consumers a way to quickly check, download and install apps. This is highly useful if you're moving to a new phone or had to wipe your current Windows Phone due to issues.

Version 2.0 of App Reinstaller has just been pushed to the store and reportedly contains multiple bug fixes, as well as patches for server connectivity.

Xbox Music Updated for Windows 8.1 Preview, adds new artist view and more

128

When Zune was somewhat retired and replaced by Xbox Music a lot of you were bummed out. Not because a product you like had its named changed, but because the actual product somewhat regressed. The Xbox Music app that launched with Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 was lacking by many standards and even lost some features we came to love with Zune. With Windows 8.1, Microsoft is steadily improving Xbox Music to a point that we’re using it daily on our machines. The latest update furthers that march of steady progress. Let’s check it out.

Halo: Spartan Assault among first Havok powered games on Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8

57

We’ve been enjoying Halo: Spartan Assault on both Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 the past few weeks. How about you? We’re a handful of weeks away from the first update to the title that will bring support for 512MB devices on Windows Phone. If you’re on Windows 8 playing the game you’ll be using your Xbox 360 controller then. We also suspect either new levels or more game modes. Of course we’ll let you know when the update hits. In the meantime, here’s the answer to a question I know every single one of you has been wondering. What’s powering the AI?

High end furniture company takes inspiration from Windows Phone Live tiles

57

Los Angeles, California based furniture company Stanton True is now offering a series of tables, rugs, and seating options that are inspired by our Windows Phone Live Tiles. Stanton True focuses on the modern market specializing in bold, customizable furniture pieces.

The high end furniture company looked for pieces with a sophisticated, neatly designed layout that is functional as well as attractive. Not only did they draw inspiration from our Windows Phone Live Tiles but also Microsoft's three-screen approach.  The style not be for everyone but you can see the Live Tile influence.

Show your friends you support Windows Phone with the free app Tile Me!

110

If there is one thing Windows Phone supporters are good at, it’s self-promotion. We have a lot of evangelists in the crowd who want to get the word out about their OS of choice. We don’t blame you either, but we’re only as good as the tools we have to work with, which is why Tile Me! is worthy of your attention.

Over in the sub-Reddit dedicated to Windows Phone, a social media consultant named David Kimball had an idea: why not create profile pictures that looked like the Windows Phone Me Tile? The idea was to allow you to change your profile pic on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc., with the Windows Phone styled design, resulting in more awareness.

104

Bell Mobility is rolling out the GDR2 update to their Samsung ATIV S Windows Phone. A leaked internal document from the Canadian wireless provider notes the update will improve battery life, add Data Sense, improve the camera and photo viewer, as well as improvements to the Maps application, SMS and Bluetooth performance.

If you are a Bell Mobility customer sporting the ATIV S, you should see the update notification by August 5th. Not sure if you can use the "check for updates" feature in the Settings and see it sooner but it's worth a try.

AT&T details their Nokia Lumia 1020 store campaign, giving the device “hero” status

112

AT&T and Nokia evidently have big plans for in-store advertising for the Lumia 1020. We’ve heard of “heroing” a device, where a carrier puts a specific phone front and center in all of its advertising, but now we can get a sneak peek of AT&T’s specific plans.

We just posted a video from the AT&T Michigan Avenue Store in Chicago that documented the massive launch party they held last Friday. As it turns out, all stores will get some sort of setup, depending on their size and location and we have the details.

Casual Connect: Puzzle Retreat coming to Windows Phone 8

22

A couple of days ago we promised you lots of gaming coverage from the Casual Connect event in San Francisco. Well, my schedule has been overstuffed with meetings (including some I didn’t list in the previous article!), but we’re going to start getting some of those articles up today. First up is our video interview with Sam Wong from the Voxel Agents, an indie game studio located in Melbourne (pronounced “Mel-bin” for some reason), Australia.

The Voxel Agents have created a surprisingly clever and unique puzzle game called Puzzle Retreat. I say surprising because there are so many puzzle games out there, it seems like every possible concept has been done to death. So if I’m interested in a puzzler, it might possibly be a game worth noticing. Making Puzzle Retreat even more worthy of notice, the game is coming to Windows Phone 8 later this year!

AT&T throws huge Nokia Lumia 1020 launch party for Chicago store

58

Although our local AT&T store has the Lumia 1020 on display, it pales in comparison to what went down at a flagship AT&T location in Chicago recently. In a video posted on YouTube, the massive launch party featured certainly one of the most elaborate in-store setups we have come across for any smartphone launch. In fact, the whole store is seemingly devoted to displaying the Lumia 1020 and its 41MP camera.

OneShot for Windows Phone 8, the first indie app to show off the power of the Nokia Imaging SDK

74

Nokia unveiled their Imaging SDK back when the Lumia 1020 was unveiled in New York City. The Nokia Imaging SDK allows developers to easily integrate photo editing capabilities into their apps, kind of like Aviary but with a slightly different approach.

The Imaging SDK from Nokia gives the power to developers, leaving them to build the UI for the app. OneShot is one of the first apps in the Store that uses the Nokia Imaging SDK and it is pretty dang awesome. Let’s check it out.
