Gameloft alters list of upcoming Xbox Windows Phone 8 games. Pray they don’t alter it further.

69

Gameloft seems to have scored a bid deal with Microsoft and their Xbox on Windows Phone games as we’ve seen this iteration of “twelve new games” teaser back in January (and even then it was not new).

Now, the gaming house has posted another video – same music, same style –but two games have been replaced. Instead of Texas Poker for Prizes and Fashion Icon we have Kingdoms & Lords and Six Guns added to the lineup. We’re not sure if that means 14 titles are actually coming (with some maybe exclusive to Nokia) or Gameloft was just unsure of what games they were releasing.

Photosynth for Windows Phone 8 finally lands in the Store

101

The other day we were teased with some upcoming big titled Windows Phone 8 apps and we guessed at the time Photosynth would be one of those. Looks like our prediction was true as that app is now live-ish in the Windows Phone Store. We say live-ish because it’s so new that there’s a good chance you won’t be able to download it for a few hours to your phone.

Photosynth went missing with Windows Phone 8 for quite some time, even though it was thought to be one of the launch apps with the new platform. We’ve been kicking around a development release since October but it’s great to see it finalized for the masses.

Three fitness apps for the road as we draw a close to Fitness Month

8

As Fitness Month fades away into the distant horizon, we've looked at apps throughout the month that are focused on helping us get into shape, eat right, get a good night's sleep and basically live a healthier life.

This week's roundup focuses on apps that tackle a wide range of fitness topics from diet to exercise to health related issues. These three apps seem to be more comprehensive than other fitness apps and while the roundup may seem to be a little on the thin side, these three apps cover a lot of territory.

As always, if you have a favorite health or fitness Windows Phone app that you'd like to recommend, sound off in the comments below.

UK estate agent Foxtons reveals how Windows Phone saves the agency time

32

A video published on the EE YouTube channel leads us to assume that the mobile operator also had a hand in the magic that Nokia managed to achieve with UK estate agent Foxtons. The footage shows just how the agency manages to save time with Windows Phone. If you look back a few weeks ago, Foxtons recently adopted the Lumia 820 and is actively making use of Windows Phone on the EE 4G network.

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.

Whilst at MWC, Windows Phone Central had the chance to sit down with Marco Argenti, Senior Vice President of the Developer and Marketplace division at Nokia. We had just been checking out the new partner apps being shown off in Nokia’s sizeable booth and were keen to hear more about the relationships Nokia are continuing to build with developers both commercial and indie, especially following the news of Nokia’s new imaging and HERE API features.

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?

Music services are one thing that Windows Phone isn’t lacking in the app department. 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.
