38

If opted for the black Nokia Lumia 920 and are looking for a way to add a little color to your Windows Phone, take a look at the Incipio Ultralight Hard Shell. Even if your Lumia 920 is already bright and colorful, the Incipio Hard Shell can give your phone a little variety.

Along with adding color to the Lumia 920, the Incipio Ultralight also offers a little protection to your phone from scratches and minor dings. Not sure how well it would protect the Lumia 920 from drops though.

Audible app now available for Windows 8

20

It took the longest time for the Audible app to hit Windows Phone after its initial launch but it seems Amazon has got their act together rather more quickly for Windows 8. The app is of course available for Windows Phone too so many of you may already be familiar with the service.

Audible operates predominantly and most economically on a subscription based model. You pay a fee each month and can use credits to purchase new books, simple. So how does the Windows 8 app stack up? We take a quick look.

Cocktail Flow update brings a beautiful new design and features

19

When I got my Dell Venue Pro over two years ago, one of the first apps I would show off to people was Cocktail Flow. It oozed the Metro Microsoft Design Language principles left and right. Beautiful typography, fast and fluid motion, and no chrome in sight. It was a beautiful app. Well Team Distinction, the developers behind Cocktail Flow, have updated the app to version 4. With that bump comes a completely new design and some new tricks.

Pay for your Latte with Starbux Card for Windows Phone

34

While we wait for official apps from companies we make due with 3rd party solutions. However, a lot of the times we get some great apps from the Windows Phone community and it's really hard to see what else an official app can add. You only need to look at 4th and Mayor and Metrotube to see examples of the active development community.

You can go ahead and add Starbux Card to that mix of examples. If you want to load up your Starbucks cards to your Windows Phone, check out Starbux Card for Windows Phone 7 and 8.

See your food. Urbanspoon gets bumped with new features in latest update

15

For you food mavens out there you may want to take a look at the recently updated Urbanspoon app (urbanspoon.com) for Windows Phone 8. Although it’s just a minor update (0.0.1 to be accurate), it does bring quite a few nifty features.

Urbanspoon was one of the Windows Phone 8 launch titles and we gave you a demo of it at the end of October. The app was solid for finding eateries but like a lot of 1.0 apps it was all meat but little in the way of optimizations. This tiny update goes a long way in improving performance, in our opinion, including the TellMe command e.g. “Urbanspoon..I want dinner”, which seems to be more reliable now.

Need a reminder? Note+ jump to Windows Phone 8 with new dictation option

9

Note+ is a simple note taking app for your Windows Phone for jotting down quick reminders while on the run. The app was recently updated to support Windows Phone 8 and along the way picked up voice commands, variable size Live Tile support and a security PIN feature to protect your notes.

You can use your Windows Phone 8 voice commands to launch Note+ and start a new note by saying, "Note+, create new note" and from there you simply follow the voice prompts and dictate your note.  Voice dictation can be also used to amend a note but for some reason you can't use voice dictation to create a new note from within the app.

You still have the ability to create notes the old fashion way by launching the app, tapping the + button and typing out your note but the voice dictation is a nice addition.
