Nokia is running an exciting contest in the US. Those who participate could win the golden prize and be flown to New York City for the world premiere of Man of Steel (June 10th), the new Superman movie. So what's the contest all about?

Instance, formerly known as Itsdagram, is now live in the Windows Phone Store

186

Earlier this week we held a community contest to rename Itsdagram, the unofficial but fully featured Instagram app for Windows Phone 8. Microsoft had contacted the developer, Daniel Gary, about changing some of the likeness of the app to keep Instagram off their backs (and no, this does not mean an official app is around the corner).

In true underdog fashion, instead of just declaring the name we asked you folks what it should be called. After taking proposals, developer Daniel Gary and ourselves agreed on five candidates, of which one was selected in a late night user poll.

Thus Itsdagram died to be reborn as….Instance.

Travelers: TripIt replacement app My Trips lands on Windows Phone 8

8

While Windows Phone does have an official TripIt app (www.tripit.com), the popular travel organizer service yields some harsh reviews from users. Indeed, the app has always been “meh” in our opinion meaning when it worked, it was just an okay experience.

But we’re champions of the indie dev here at Windows Phone Central and My Trips has always filled the TripIt-gap on our platform. The app runs for $1.99 (with a free trial) but if you use TripIt and travel more than twice a year, then it’s a no-brainer to purchase.

Let's Golf 2 leads the Windows Phone Red Stripe Deals this week

23

Now that EA Sports has released Tiger Woods 12 for Nokia phones, golf fans have two Xbox golf titles to choose from. Tiger Woods’ predecessor, Let’s Golf 2 is by comparison a much more cartoony title. But realism isn’t always that important in sports games – just see our NBA Jam review. Besides, it’s not like HTC and Samsung owners can get Tiger Woods anyway. Oh, and Let’s Golf 2 is on sale for a lower price right now.

That’s right, Gameloft’s Let’s Golf 2 for Windows Phone 7 and 8 is the Xbox Windows Phone Red Stripe Deal of the Week. You can get it for $1.99, down from the too-high price of $4.99. This marks the game’s second outing as Deal of the Week – it last went on sale in September 2012 for the same price.

Rounding out the Red Stripe deals this week are Cradle to the Grave Premium from indie developer Coltran Studios and an air traffic utility app called Flightradar24, both on sale for 99 cents. Read on for descriptions, pictures, and store links!

It's believed to be the Huawei Ascend W2, a more advanced successor to the Ascend W1. We've previously looked at the Ascend W2 and how previous reports suggested it was going to be the thinnest Windows Phone yet, but this is the first we've seen of this design.
