Treat yourself with Dessert Recipes

As Fitness Month comes to an end, we thought we'd offer a Windows Phone app that might come in handy when you want to stray from that healthy menu and indulge in a calorie busting, decadent dessert.

Dessert Recipes is such an app that will offer up recipes for cakes, pies, cheesecakes, puddings, cookies and other tasty treats that will blow your daily calorie count through the roof.

Nike Kinect+ Training Review: Keeping fit with Xbox 360 and Windows Phone

18

While the Kinect’s suitability for gaming is sometimes a subject of debate, nobody can deny that the Xbox 360’s motion peripheral is perfectly matched for workout games. Of all the consoles, only the Xbox 360 with Kinect can track a user’s entire body positioning with any real degree of accuracy. Gamers who aspire to get into better shape without leaving the home have many options thanks to these Kinect workout games.

Microsoft has thrown its hat in with Nike and developer Sumo Digital (makers of the awesome Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing Transformed) to produce the most definitive fitness game to date: Nike+ Kinect Training. We know they’re serious about it because they announced it on-stage at E3 (to a generally Kinect-apathetic crowd) and produced a terrific Windows Phone companion app to go along with it.

Barclays working on Windows Phone app, due out by 2014

53

UK bank Barclays has confirmed on Twitter that a Windows Phone app is currently in development. The only issue is that they have the end of the year as the deadline, which makes us assume they're very early in the development stage, aren't pouring much time and effort into it, or aren't making any promises (likely number 3). At least the bank has looked at Windows Phone as a viable platform to support.

You can find the full write up of that discussion after the break.

Microsoft remains silent on Windows Phone, possible problems up the chain?

252

Shh. Can you hear that? Yup, that's the sound of a pin dropping when it comes to Microsoft shouting out and marketing Windows Phone. The company had a rather elusive presence at CES earlier this year, as well as the recent Mobile World Congress. If you ask anyone, "Who's powering Windows Phone marketing?" I bet the majority (if not everyone) will answer, "Nokia." So what's up with Microsoft?

We’ve got the native Zune Xbox Music service built in, Nokia Music on some devices, Spotify, Slacker, Rdio, and Pandora (on the way). For fans of Rdio, the app just got a small update that should help appease subscribers of the human-powered music discovery music network.

The Chinese Windows Phone Store's billing breaks, Microsoft working on a fix

11

 

The Chinese side of the Windows Phone Store has had a bumpy time lately. For the last a few days, Chinese users have been experiencing problems when trying to purchase apps. Many found it impossible to download any paid app; you go through the payment process only to get an error message. The money gets accepted by the Windows Phone Store well enough, but the app license never comes. Some fairly persistent folks have tried repeatedly, paying $3 for Angry Bird Seasons in three shots. Yet they still failed to get the app at the end of the day.

University intern creates impressive Windows Phone marketing video

67

Chu Yi, a university intern in the US, has created an impressive Windows Phone video. Yi chose to make a model version of a Windows Phone, which sports interchangeable tiles to create a unique effect when coupled with post-production effects (speeding everything up). The general idea was to highlight the ability to personalise Windows Phone to suit individual characteristics. We'll have to admit we're rather impressed.

Own a piece of Windows Phone history that almost was - the Sony Ericsson Julie

65

One of the things that initially attracted me to Windows Phone was how it seemed like a balance between the iOS and Android approach to smartphones. You have a consistent user experience across devices (iOS), while still having a wide variety of handsets to choose from (Android). And it’s been wonderful. We’ve had a variety of OEMs over the years too, companies like Samsung and HTC have been there from the beginning and others like LG and Dell came and went. Nokia came about midway through and bet the entire company on the platform.

However, Sony Ericsson is one company that has been absent the entire time, but it almost wasn’t that way.
