NotifyMe! is another indie project to bring a notification center to Windows Phone

44

We broke the news last week that Liquid Daffodil will be releasing a notification center system called Unification for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 sometime in the near future (it's officially in Beta testing as we speak).. The system is opt-in meaning devs can just add a line of code to their app to hook into it. Now it looks like a competing system is starting to take form from Alex White, called NotifyMe!

The app is still vaporware at this time and like LD’s, it uses an opt-in system for developers to use the notification system. The concept is interesting as it evidently uses the dynamic Lock Screen ability in Windows Phone 8 to generate new wallpaper (we’re assuming) when there’s a new notification.

AlterEgo: DreamWalker, a split personality of a sequel

2

AlterEgo: DreamWalker is the sequel to the Windows Phone game AlterEgo. DreamWalker shares the retro appearance of the original and is a challenging puzzle oriented platform game.

DreamWalker has you navigating through a series of platform levels full of obstacles and monsters to collect pixels. You have a ghost image that mirrors your movements that you can swap places with to get through the levels.

Game play is simple, yet challenging and the retro graphics reminds me of the old Atari or Commodore 64 days. AlterEgo: DreamWalker is a nice continuation of the original game.

Joe Belfiore reveals more on Skype integration and "Other" storage fix

92

Good news for those who are on both Windows Phone 7.8 and the latest version of Microsoft's mobile platform. Joe Belfiore, who heads up the Windows Phone team and is the idol we all secretly praise in a dark, dim-lit room has revealed more information on both system-level Skype integration, as well as the pesky "Other" storage issue that many consumers are experiencing.

The tweets, which were published before Belfiore's tweet about the Windows Phone 7.8 Live Tile issue, went unchecked but we've been rightfully notified by more observant souls. So what's Microsoft looking at when it comes to further integration with its communications service, and will we finally see a fix for the shocking levels of internal storage stolen by the operating system?

Instagram spotted in Windows Phone advertisement, soon to be available? Probably not.

118

We've had an interesting image sent in from a reader, showing what appears to be an Instagram logo on the home screen of a Lumia 620 being advertised. The promotional material shows the Windows Phone in Portugal listed for 170 euro with a coupled package, but what's interesting about the device is definitely the mysterious use of the Instagram logo. Could this be a sign of what's to come, or is the app being falsely advertised?

Microsoft’s Belfiore says they’re working on a fix for 7.8 Tile update issue

53

It was just a few days ago where an MSDN forum thread prompted a response from Mark Chamberlain, Microsoft Principal Developer Support Escalation regarding the Windows Phone 7.8 Tile issue. The problem stems from some Live Tiles not getting updated or using too much data, neither of which are viable options for must users and is one heck of a bug to slip.

Last night, Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore, who leads the Windows Phone Team, even acknowledged the issue on Twitter. Responding to a question about static tiles, Belfiore noted that “We identified a minor issue where some 7.8 tiles stop updating and we are working on a fix now”.
