Catcha Mouse! is one of those Windows Phone games that isn't too difficult to pick up but challenging enough to keep you interested.
The object of Catcha Mouse! is to lay mouse traps out to catch a little mouse and prevent him from escaping. Animations are nice, sound effects humorous, and along with fun game play Catcha Mouse! is worth a try.
Good news everyone! Zynga’s two big hit games, Words with Friends and Draw Something, are both now available for Windows Phone (that’s 7 and 8). What’s more, these are the ad-free versions, which means you’ll have to fork over $2.99 for each. (An earlier, ad-supported version of Draw Something was released for Nokia but then pulled).
That may seem pricey but if we were going to play these often, we would definitely drop the $3 to get back that screen space and not to use our data/battery—but that’s us.
Windows Phone Central's review of Nokia's highly anticipated flagship Windows Phone 8 device
If there were one device that the tech world is focused on for measuring Windows Phone success, it would be the Nokia Lumia 920 (available now on AT&T; $99). It is considered by many to be the “flagship” phone (a term we find to be ill defined) for the platform and as such it has a lot riding on it.
We’ve had the AT&T Nokia Lumia 920 for well over 10 days now so we figured we would finally share our thoughts. The reason for the delay? Simply put, the device was not available to most of you and we happen to believe in spending more than 48 hours with a phone before deciding on the pros and cons. Some reviews, in our opinion, have glossed over some issues, others have missed new developments and most have focused on just a few aspects e.g. the size issue.
The too long, didn’t read it version? We like the Lumia 920 a lot and it is easily the best Windows Phone to date. It’s perhaps not for everyone but Nokia have done a great job.
We just got our hands on the new HTC 8X Windows Phone from AT&T and it makes a nice first impression. Launched today with the Nokia Lumia 920 and 820, we are hearing supplies are limited for the new HTC Windows Phone.
This was the only 8X my local AT&T Store received and I was told more are due tomorrow and Monday. You also have the option to order the 8X online over at AT&T's website.
There have been an average of 1,500 new developer registrations every day since the BUILD conference, and more than double the Windows Phone 8 SDK downloads in the first 8 days compared to the 7.1 SDK.
Some banks are better than others. My own bank, BBVA Compass is not exactly terrific, but I don’t have an abundance of choices in my small city. One thing I’ve long lamented is the lack of a Windows Phone app to make checking my account easier. Heck, BBVA Compass doesn’t even offer a mobile version of their site, so logging in and checking my stuff on my phone has always taken longer than necessary. Those difficulties finally came to an end this week, as there is now an official BBVA Compass app on the Windows Phone Store.
If you've gotten your new Windows Phone 8 device and are looking for the Windows Phone 8 version of the Skype app.... it's not out yet.
With Windows Phone 8, we are expecting some new features to Skype that include the ability to keep you signed-in and reachable even when you've closed out the Skype app. You'll also find that your Skype contacts are automatically added to your Peoples Hub and Live Tile support for unread messages.
During the production phase of the Nokia Lumia 920, the hardworking folks who put together these remarkable devices quickly test out the camera, checking for colors and whether or not it even works. Sometimes though, they forget to delete the samples. Such is the case with Ryan J.'s phone, which still had a few photos and even a video clip on board.
Head past the break and catch a quick glimpse at the people behind your new toy.
We just came back from one of our local AT&T store, actually two of 'em, looking for the new Lumia 920. Our first store only had the Nokia hero phone in black (we were going for glossy white) so we had to drive a few miles in the other direction to grab one. Lesson? Call your store first to make sure you have availability. We ended up paying $350 for it as the rep extended our contract from 17 months back to 24, saving us a few hundred bucks.
No stores had charging pads either but if you press the store manager on it, they should be able to order you one for free. The HTC 8X was also in short supply, with a lot of stores reporting no-stock. And although we didn't see any lines, we did see a few folks purchasing the 920, so word is out.
Check out our quick unboxing video to see the Lumia 920 in its mediocre enclosure. And don't forget to share your AT&T Windows Phone 8 experience in our comments here for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate.
Many of you are either considering getting a Windows Phone device this weekend or might be going out to grab one. Either way we think some of our Windows Phone 8 articles and how-to’s are going to come in handy.
There has been an onslaught of information and news so we thought we’d point you at some of the key posts we have done around the new operating system.
So you've battled the elements, traffic and long lines and have gotten your hands on a new Windows Phone. While you're waiting for your new Nokia Lumia 920,Lumia 820 or HTC 8X to charge up you can head over to the WPCentral Forums and chat it up about your new phone.
Today's launch of the AT&T Windows Phone 8 devices was sure to draw lines at some stores. Dare I say it was a perfect storm type event with the launch of the Nokia Lumia 920, Lumia 820 and HTC 8X on the same day?
Readers are reporting a mixed bag with some stores not having any of the new phones in stock to stores with plenty Lumia's in stock but no 8X's. WPCentral reader, Jignesh, sent us the above picture from the AT&T Store at Irving, Texas of customers lining up to buy the new Windows Phones.
When Nokia announced that a Windows Phone 7-specific version of Angry Birds Star Wars was still on the way despite the availability of a WP8 version, a few readers commented that Nokia’s continued support of WP7 still seemed unlikely. Well, let’s not doubt the Finnish smartphone manufacturer too much. They’ve just released not one but three Xbox games for Windows Phone 7, one of which hadn’t been unannounced beforehand! All three games: The Game of Life, Jet Set Go, and Parking Mania are Nokia exclusives and will work on both Nokia’s WP7 and newly-released WP8 handsets.
