Someday we might have have an official Tinder app available on Windows Phone. In the meantime, we've got a few unofficial apps from third-party developers. One them, 6tin, has had a turbulent time in the Windows Phone Store so far. It's been disappeared and reappeared a handful of times. As of now, it looks like it might stick around a bit. Today it just picked up an update that adds a feature you won't find in the official Tinder apps on iOS or Android.

Big Business Deluxe review – Build a business empire on Windows Phone

10

Game Insight knows a thing or two about city building games. The Russian publisher has already brought two My City titles and Airport City over to Windows Phone and Windows 8. Each of these genre entries does things a little differently from the rest. 2020 My Country, for example, takes place in a near future setting. Airport City focuses on building a thriving airport and its urban surroundings.

Big Business Deluxe is Game Insight's latest city builder for Windows Phone (Windows 8 and RT versions will come later). As you might expect, this one goes into much more depth on the business side of things. Players will start new businesses and factories, developing goods into new products and using the profits to further expand their burgeoning metropolises. It works with phones with 512 MB of RAM right out of the gate and is a relatively small download, so all Windows Phone 8 users can have a chance at starting their own business empires.

Lumia 1020 new 'end of life date' and what it all means for Microsoft

145

Yesterday, @evleaks noted that the Nokia Lumia 1020 with its 41 MP camera is reaching 'end of life' status on September 14, effectively ending the renown camera-phone's run. However, we inquired with some of our sources and learned October 15 as the date Microsoft and their Stores are using for sending back and ending sales of the Lumia 1020. One-month difference though does not change the fact that the Lumia 1020 is indeed reaching its finish.
