Let’s talks security: LastPass finally becomes useful in redesigned new app for Windows Phone

46

LastPass: When you have been on the internet for as long as we have and have as many passwords stored as we do, apps like LastPass get filed under “necessity” for immediate installation. The app has been on Windows Phone for some time but it was always kind of “meh”. That’s our technical lingo for saying it was missing features.

Luckily for us, the app has been bumped to version 1.9 and with a slight redesign and some added new features the app has become very useful for those who have amassed a tome of passwords over the years.

For those of you who aren’t familiar, LastPass (www.lastpass.com) is a service that acts as a password vault for your PC, Mac, Windows Phone…basically every platform out there today. You can use one master password which will allow you to login to the app and you can see everything.

Be a star! Microsoft wants your Windows Phone app featured on TV

25

Microsoft has just announced a new developer contest that should make things very interesting both for developers and regular consumers who use their apps every day. The contest, entitled “Windows Phone Next App Star Competition”, will offer up over $1M in prizes to 64 winners but it’s the top spot that should gain the most attention. 

Should you win the #1 app, Microsoft will feature your creation on a TV commercial featured in primetime.

The way the contest is structured is very simple. Developers just need to have their apps published by March 5th and users will merely vote for their favorite app based on the ratings (“stars”) they give it in the Store. That means apps with 4 or 5 star ratings starting on March 5th will get ranked higher than ones with 2 or 3 stars...

Photosynth for Window Phone 8 just “weeks away” after slipping due to driver issue

47

While we unfortunately can’t provide you with a download link to the Store just yet, it looks like Microsoft is finally getting ready to unleash Photosynth for Windows Phone 8. The popular 360 degree photo mesh app was noticeably absent since the new OS but the prospect of a “...any day now" re-launch always felt imminent.

The Photosynth team took to Twitter to bring the news, seemingly after some folks on Reddit made some noise about the app’s prolonged absence from the platform. The reason as it turns out was a drive issue, which caused the shipping date to head past the original time frame for launch...

Nokia proves popular in the Netherlands as the Lumia 920 sells out…on the first day.

65

We’re still not quite sure what the situation is for Nokia’s stock of the Lumia 920. Word is that they kept production limits tight due to a fear of having a warehouse filled with unsold devices just collecting dust. That’s a dangerous position to be in when your financials are as precarious as Nokia’s.

Being the case, it’s still interesting to read that in the Netherlands, where the Lumia 920 just went on sale today, at least one major reseller (Bol.com) is already reporting stock is so low that they can’t guarantee any orders past tomorrow. To make it worse, they don’t even know when the device will be back in stock.

GAME Rewards updated with price checker and more.

14

The official GAME Reward app for Windows Phone has been bumped to version 2.0, which introduces a number of features and addresses a few bugs. We previously looked at the app when it was made available for Windows Phone 8, but were stunned to see just how limited the experience was - if one managed to get the thing working.
