Grey does matter. Lumia 920 loses its color for Hong Kong. Looks awesome.

80

The grey variant of the Lumia 920 Windows Phone has been spotted on the Nokia Hong Kong Facebook account. Yes, it actually exists. The device has been expected to arrive in multiple markets since the Lumia 920 was announced last year, but we're yet to see the colour made available in numbers for consumers to get their paws on.

Social Scout: Check-in, see what's nearby and find your friends

16

JDB Pocketware, developers of HandyScan, has a new Windows Phone app over in the Windows Phone Store. Social Scout is a Facebook Places app designed to help you explore what's nearby, find places, check-in and find out where your Facebook friends are.

While not developed or owned by Facebook, Social Scout taps into Facebook Places and lays out everything rather nicely across pages that show what places are nearby, where your friends have checked into, and a More Page that lists your most visited places, your check-ins, a "Feeling lucky" tile that will randomly select a restaurant for you to try, and a one touch check-in tile.

Nokia does a solid. Releases turn-by-turn Drive nav app for all Windows Phone 8 devices

195

Today, Nokia along with Microsoft have released Nokia’s famed Drive app for all Windows Phone 8 devices in the United States, Canada and the UK.  The app allows users to get full voice guided turn-by-turn navigation with 2D or 3D renderings right to their phone, including offline mapping capability.

Microsoft and Nokia famously entered into a technology sharing agreement back in February 2011 and part of that deal had to do with maps. Nokia was reportedly going to bring “mapping abilities” to all Windows Phone users but it was unclear how that would happen, including what role OEMs would play (if any at all).

Flight Control Rocket Review: I think it's gonna be a long long time...

25

The original Flight Control from Australian developer Firemint created the line drawing genre. It plays to smartphones’ strengths, allowing players to craft flight paths for incoming aircraft by drawing smooth lines on the touch screen. But the gameplay boils down to endless score runs, limiting its appeal to goal-oriented gamers.

Thankfully Firemint and EA took that consideration to heart when developing their sequel Flight Control Rocket (aka FC Rocket). It improves on the original game in pretty much every way, although the new focus on grinding goes a little too far. Still, FC Rocket is my pick for the most addictive Nokia exclusive Xbox Windows Phone game yet.
